I have almost gained 25 pounds now, and by tomorrow, I probably will have. I didn’t gain very much weight for the first half of my pregnancy, but the weight gain has rapidly increased since Christmas. If I were to graph it, I would be slightly alarmed at the increasing steepness of the line.
What’s strange though, is that I really don’t FEEL like I’ve gained weight, other than in my stomach, of course. I know my body is overall a little bigger because I’ve needed to buy larger undergarments, but for the most part, the rest of my body feels the same. I feel like my face looks the same, my arms look the same, and my legs mostly look the same. It just seems like someone took 25 pounds and put them directly in my stomach. It makes me wonder what I’ll look like once these babies come out, and how long it will be until I feel normal again, since I don’t feel that abnormal now.
Or maybe I am just in a state of denial so that I don’t have to be upset about gaining 25 pounds and knowing that I have about 10 more to go.
