Here's the hitch... this time I'm going to be working with a new doctor. And this doctor is a bit known in my surrogacy circles as, 'Dr. Fat Shame." Apparently he has a way of trying to talk anyone with a BMI over 26 into losing some weight before getting knocked up.
Now, let's look at the facts here, folks.
Fact: my BMI is not a 4. Hell, it's not even a 24. (it's a 28, and I'm kind of proud of it)
Fact: I out-gym most men.
Fact: I've lost 61 pounds (and counting) in the last year.
Fact: I am healthy, and my body does what I want it to do.
Fact: I've successfully carried and birthed 3 children.
Fact: No one really shames me for anything.
Fact: I'm nervous for this appointment despite the facts.
Makes no sense. But I am.
They'll also be looking inside of my uterus to make sure it's still beautiful. I'm fairly certain it is, but this doctor seems to be a bit more picky... so who knows what he'll think of my "deflated balloon"
So here we go. Off to the doctor, nervous, but daring him to fat shame me.
