Well so far in my pregnancy I have only put on two pounds, which is an OK amount at this stage so I am very pleased. The wierd thing is that in the last week I have started showing, which is very exciting, but I haven't actually put on any weight this week. This was wierd for me. Anyway, to cut a long story short, the mother in law came round last night and said I had put on a lot of weight. Basically too much for the stage I am at and I will be massive by the time I give birth. She really is astonishingly rude at times. She does not realise how much she upset me. She is the only person who has said anything negative to me this week. Everyone else has said that I am blooming! I certainly did feel as though I was blooming and now I just feel fat. I have struggled with my weight all my life (I was obese in 2000) and pregnancy is something that (for me) is something that must be tolerated, rather than to be thoroughly enjoyed. I am even more irritated by the fact that the father in law and my DH just stood there and let her insult me I am very angry with her this morning and can't get her flippant comments out of my head and I have told my DH that I want him to instruct her not to mention my weight ever again, or I will mention it. grrrrrrrr Oh well, apart from that, mother and baby doing fine! The scan is on thursday! I will send my picture in!
