She said EXACTLY what I needed to hear, EXACTLY when I needed to hear it… It is no secret when one is pregnant, one gains weight. It is no secret that when ones body is changing, one may struggle with those changes. And it is no secret that when one is struggling, one does not want the focus to be on their body, their weight or their impending baby (babies do not convince the brain that gaining weight feels wonderful)…
So, I had a doctors appointment and I’ve started weighing in in a new manner. My nurse calls me back, asks me to hop on the scale and I proceed to stare at the ceiling… No, I have not become crazy large, but YES, I would prefer not knowing what the number on the scale reads… After-all, it is just a number.
So, today… Today, I must thank my doc… I love her. I love her because today she said my weight looks perfect… Yes, please pick my jaw up from the floor. Please tell the Twix bar in my belly to digest. Please tell my racing mind that “Until the doctor is concerned, you should not be…”
It was a lovely day… It does not change my body image entirely, but it sure does make things just a tinge better.
Thanks again doc!!!!
