Any of you put on weight when your wife was pregnant?
yup, you need to get pre-birth fit, not only from a point of view of being on the go all the time, but the distinct lack of sleep which is coming your way. Learn how to cat nap, and get back to sleep quickly at all times of the night, but. congratualations by the way, and good luck. 🙂Posted 4 years agoJef WachowchowMember
I did. I put on a stone and a half! There were other factors as well but they are just excuses. The boy is now 14 months old and I have just got down to my pre pregnancy weight. He is just starting to walk now so I expect a bit more weight to drop off in the coming months.Posted 4 years ago
I actually lost weight during my wife’s pregancy as I was cooking more and going away less but that all went back on with interest once the wee fellow arrived.
Getting better now he usually sleeps through the night and is old enough to go for longish rides in the Chariot. It wa sa very unhealthy first 12 months though.Posted 4 years agomeikle_partansMember
It’s harder after birth, tiredness makes you very susceptible to junk food snacking. In addition, I experienced what felt like a massive drop in testosterone just after my daughter was born. It was just a feeling I got and I don’t know if there is any science behind it. I suppose it might make sense biologically to encourage nurturing. I just felt less competitive, less driven, the other obvious symptom, a bit kind of flabby and meh. It came back soon enough, but I’m just wondering if anyone else went through this.Posted 4 years agoorganic355Member
Both of us usually uber healthy eaters, but her hormones are telling her she needs lots of carbs..and chocolate..and hagen das!! Even had chips on a roll the other night (unheard of usually) and munched our way through a pack of chocolate digestives in a night.
Finding it quite difficult to resist eating stuff if its there and she is eating it. I don’t mind her eating what she wants as I know she is normally healthy and will revert back to this afterwards. Do I just need to MTFU and have stronger will power or just give in and get fat with her in sympathy? 🙂Posted 4 years ago
