Well, I've just finished putting away about two brownies that I shouldn't have baked but I couldn't help myself. I needed them! Here I am in my 38th week of pregnancy (I turn 39 on Friday) and I find myself counting the days and not so much my calories. While I'm ready to meet my baby boy, I'm also aware that our world is about to experience a shift (not necessarily a negative one) but that I should enjoy what we have now a little longer.
I've been trying to continue working out but I highly doubt it can keep up with the amount I'm eating. For some reason I'm so hungry -- and a lot of my cravings are for sweets. I've done much better this time around with weight management but this last month is really getting to me. I gained 3 lbs last week!
I've decided to go for the VBAC so consuming these empty calories is definitely not a good idea if I don't want to attempt to push out a 10 lb baby. I need to buckle down and have some will power.
Anyone else struggle with this at the home stretch?
