When I got pregnant and found out I was having twins, I was elated!! I so badly, wanted to be a mom and my wish had finally come true. Then people started saying to me, "oh my goodness, you're going to be huge," and "good luck taking the weight off ::chuckle::"
If I said that I wasn't concerned about how my body would look after my boys were born, I'd be lying.
I think we all think about what it will be like. I hadn't been pregnant before, so I didn't know how carrying two babies would affect me. My body hurt after about 33 weeks of carrying around the little ones and I couldn't imagine what it would be like to feel "normal" again.
This morning, I hopped on the scale and saw that I am the closest to my weight goal than ever before. I don't plan on getting back to my pre-pg weight of 116 because my BMI was borderline for someone who is 5'6" (unintentionally -- I'm far from a dieter or exerciser!); but my goal is 120 and I'm only 4lbs away.
Overall, I feel healthy and energized (amazingly!). I'm getting stronger from constantly lifting the little guys and bending down to hang out on the floor with them all the time. It's like non-stop squats!
