I have a lovely yoga teacher. I was doing her classes before my pregnancy, and switched to pregnancy yoga this year. The first 8-week set of classes I attended commenced with about 8 attendees, gradually dwindling as Mum's-to-be left on their maternity leave.
Just one new face last week, and another newbie this week. A maximum of 5 attendees this round, so a small, intimate class. Now I must say, everyone I've met so far has been just lovely.
So today's new girl is barely showing, but is at the 20-week mark (where I am). I feel enormous, and said so with a laugh. Some sarky comment came back at me... I'm surprised at how the competitive Mums are already showing up. I mentioned that it depends on how each person's uterus is positioned... and got a smug smile back.
So I turned to one of the girls I've known a while and mentioned that I saw the doc last week, and had mentioned that I'd been worried that I'd not put any weight on yet. New girl then, a little more quietly, mentioned that she'd already put a stone on.
Who's smug now then? But perhaps I shouldn't have said that I actually lost 4kg's the first month after I found out I was pregnant... and have actually put on 600g since *blush*
Has anyone else come across competitive Mums this early on?
PS. I'm off for my 20-week scan tomorrow, wish me luck? Halfway there!
