Pregnancy weight gains

It’s funny how I felt slim and fit while I was pregnant and now the baby is out I feel fatter than when I was pregnant. I don’t know why I used to hear you would lose weight when you breastfeed your baby. I don’t find that true in the least because I need to eat well for the kid. 

I find it comforting The Mister shares the similar roundness to me. I imagine I would feel slightly resentful and envious if he was fit and dashing while I’m round everywhere. And the reason why he’s been putting on weight is really because of my pregnancy. He was cooking up a storm during my first trimester but because of my morning sickness I wouldn’t eat much. He ended up eating triple his usual amount to avoid wasting food. He learnt to cook less but was still eating more than his usual portion to finish up what I didn’t eat. 

While we were having our supper earlier, he said, “I’ve forgotten what hunger feels like since I married you.”

    I think I read somewhere that some men gain “sympathy weight” when their wives are pregnant. I don’t know if that applies in your husband’s case, but it’s still cute!
