So I went to the app store and typed in "Pregnancy Weight Tracker." This is what I found. I'm putting up the picture because, as you can see, I cannot read the full title of the app!
It was $1.99. For some reason, I had to have it. This way, I can see if my pregnancy weight is "normal" or "overweight." As you can see, I practically straddle the line. Here I am, at week 12 weighing 143. Now this app, hallelujah, shows me back in the green zone baby. Yes! By the hair of my chinny chin chin.
On other page in the app, you can track your weight as the pregnancy goes on. So, as you can see below, I started at week 0, weighing 147. That dot is in the yellow "overweight" zone. But then, thanks to my sleeve, Strep Throat, and morning sickness, I lost 6 pounds not long after getting pregnant---putting my next two dots in the the "normal" green zone. Then I gained back 2 over the next month. It doesn't show as a "gain" on the graph because my BMI stayed even.....get it? So if you're gaining weight on track, it will actually show a steady line across......
I say "so" a lot, I've noticed. Please forgive me.
I played around with this app today and if I stay under 175 by week 40, I'll be in the green zone (barely). Honestly, I doubt I'll be able to gain that much (knock on wood everyone!) NOR, do I want to. My goal is 165 lbs or less---which is easy to say right now when morning sickness zaps my desire to eat 75% of the time. BUT, when I do have the desire to eat---I can eat more, which I discussed in the last post. And unfortunately, I know I'll get my appetite back in the second trimester, which is fast approaching!
