Just got back from my appt. with my OB (Dr. W) . Did the regular weigh in and did not like what I saw. I hate getting weighed at the doctor's office. Only because it is always higher than my real weight. Although I always kick off my shoes, my clothes are heavy and add, what....10 lbs.? Okay, maybe 4. Anyways, I prefer to track my pregnancy weight gain by weighing myself right before I get in the shower each morning. According to my home scale I have gained about 10 lbs, which is normal for 20 weeks. Not sure where that 10 lbs. has gone, I am thinking about 2 to my boobs and the rest to my volleyball belly. However, according to my doctor's scale she says I have gained about 12-13 lbs. I quickly protested saying that I am always fully dressed at her office and half the time constipated when I go in, therefore, her scale sucks and adds poundage that really does not exist. She laughed and said that my gain is normal for my body type and that I would be gaining about another 20 lbs. from here to my due date. 20 lbs! Holy crap! Where does that go? Oh, right, to the baby and my boobs.
