PERFECT Birthing Hips

I've been told {on more than one occasion} that I have "perfect birthing hips".  Perfect you say?  I have been considered big-boned all of my life but the birthing hips comment was a new one to me.  I don't remember how I responded.  I'm sure it was with an "oh" or "hmm" followed by cringing and awkward silence.  I'm confident I didn't take it as a compliment.  Hell, if my April FET works, I get to finally put these babies to good use.  It's about time.

Speaking of wide, I've battled my weight off and on throughout the past 30 years.  In 2007, I was pushing 230 and slowly through long distance running and Weight Watchers, I've lost up to 80 pounds.  I say "up to" because I've packed a few of those pounds back on...especially since my devastating BFN 3 weeks ago.

All of that to say, getting pregnant and getting "fat" again used to terrify me.  In my naive I-can-get-pregnant-whenever-I-want-to days, I would use this as one of my excuses for waiting.  Today, my feelings have totally changed.  I hope to have the OPPORTUNITY to gain weight for my baby someday...perfect birthing hips and all.

  1. You will be a smokin hot pregnant lady, all baby and not fat - and put those hips to use in no time! And 80 lbs is amazing. My cousin has done WW too since 2006 and I am always amazed at how hard she works at it and how dedicated she is. Good for you.
