Diets by Pregnant Women Spur Underweight Babies in Japan

If you’re pregnant in Japan and your doctor tells you to lose weight, tell him to fuck a cactus.

Women in Japan are dangerous levels of underweight when giving birth resulting in cases of premature delivery and growth-restricted infants are at increased risk of coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, Type 2 diabetes and obesity as adults.

A friend of mine who recently had a baby was told she needed to LOSE weight while pregnant because she was gaining it too fast, fortunately her pediatrician father was shocked at her Japanese doctors assesment and told her to tell him to shove it and find a new doctor.

Easing gas and bloating, and calculating a due date

You still may not look pregnant, though some women, especially those who’ve been pregnant before, say they feel a little thicker around the middle. Emotionally, you may still feel like you’re on a roller coaster ride, thrilled about the baby one minute and terrified about becoming a parent the next. Cut yourself some slack. Almost all expectant parents worry about how a new baby will change their lives, but the vast majority later say that becoming a parent was one of the best things they’ve ever done. 

You may be feeling extra gassy or bloated now, too. That’s primarily because during pregnancy you have much higher levels of progesterone, which relaxes smooth muscle tissue throughout your body, including your gastrointestinal tract. This slows your digestion, which can cause more gas, bloating, burping, flatulence, and generally miserable sensations in your gut – especially after a big meal.

I just noticed my first strechmarks on my legs! :(
I haven’t gain any weight yet. Though, It’s getting hard to zip my jacket. I can’t wear my old brahs anymore, even my hips got wider.
Lots of people have noticed my belly has grown. I use bio oil on it every day, it keeps my belly soft. I didnt use it on my legs though.. untill now..

I feel like I felt last summer and it freaks me out. I can’t take the smell of coffee, I don’t even drink it if it’s not an Ice soy latte. I’m freaking tired all the time, moody and dizzy no matter how much I sleep. Also I’ve so much water in my body that it hurts and the iron level is low so my skin ain’t good either.. at the moment I don’t wanna be me at all. I just want to cry out on a shoulder but big girls don’t do that, they shut up and smile.. i’ve been told
