Hi firstly I feel guilty about asking such a unimportant question when people have much worse worries to ask about but was just curious if anyone has put as much weight on as me!

My normal weight. The weight I was before I was pregnant was 11 stone 7.

Im 10 weeks pregnant now and weigh 12 stone 7 exactly. I was a bit more than this but have managed to eat more fruit veg healthy stuff like pasta pot etc last few weeks instead of just eating chips and ice cream which is all I could manage for a while without feeling sick!

After speaking to people been told 1 stone is quite alot and have already been told I look like "im blooming" lol.

How is everyone else getting on?

My tummy looks alot larger. Im sure alot of it must be water/bloat as im not eating anything different to normal.

pregnantmimi Tue 24-May-11 19:43:20

my tummy looks big huge even had a few people pat me on the tummy and ask when its due lol and Im thinking thats mostly undigested chips lol

Everyone is different. It just depends on you, the baby and the kind of pregnancy you're having.

I'm almost 23 weeks and I've had really bad sickness throughout my pregnancy so I found I'd actually lost just over a stone in weight. I've put half of it back on again now though lol.

I'm sure your mw would mention it if it was a concern. But try not to worry about it too much. And remember breastfeeding is good for helping you to return to your pre-baby weight smile

I've put on half a stone and am 11 weeks feel massive but suppose better get used to it.

Have already forgotten how to eat cereal bars and ryvita and on the bread and lots of other stuff.

I was 11 3 before I got pregnant and am 5ft 6. At 15 weeks I have piled a stone on. Its mainly on my "bump" which appeared very quick and to be fair is about 90% cornetto. smile

Nothing in 1st trimester but I think I must have lost a lot of weight by not drinking so must have put some back on. Im 14 weeks and I've put on a lb. With my last 2 Id put on 1/2 stone by now.

catgirl sounds like you had same weight gain as me and im 5 foot 6 too lol. Will meantion it to midwife next week I m thinking it cause I have been able to keep food down up like some people who cantxx

I am still losing weight at 14 weeks sad
I think I have lost close to a stone

edwinbear Wed 25-May-11 09:43:42

I'm 14 weeks, started at 10 stone and now 10 stone 10 so nearly a stone. Which is mainly down to crisps and chocolate, despite promising myself I would not pile back on the weight I had just lost 18 months after having DS.

I'm just over 7 weeks and I've put on 2 or 3 lbs so far. Trying to keep it down as my BMI was 31 before I got pregnant.

roz1982 Wed 25-May-11 12:18:48

I'm 15 weeks tomorrow and have definitely put a decent amount of weight on - reckon a bit more than half a stone. I mainly attribute this to feeling so bloody horrible in the first trimester that I ate bad, salty, carby food because after sickness and tiredness it was all I wanted! since I've started feeling better it has settled a bit and most of it seems to going to the growing bump!!

CandyS Wed 25-May-11 12:28:17

10 weeks, and I've put on 8lbs.
I normally weight 8st 10lbs, but since I found out I am pregnant I haven't being doing any weights or intense exercise (just yoga/work out dvds) I blame that!

nochy Wed 25-May-11 13:13:36

I'm week 9 and have put on 6lbs. Am absolutely starving today and am trying very hard not to give in but my mouth feels horrible..

I am still big from my last prgnancy, in which i couldn't move and was bloody miserable (BMI30) and, as DS was 5 months when i conceived, hadn't got to my 6 month right, now to shift the weight serious diet plan. I started this pregnancy 18lb heavier than my previous and it's petrifying me.

dribbleface Wed 25-May-11 13:37:07

I put on almost a stone at 13 weeks, but now at 21 weeks only gone up by 1 stone 1ib in total. My last pregnancy i put on lots of weight early on, stabilised in middle then lots at end. Think its the way i carry to be honest. If your eating heathily try not to worry but worth a quick caht with midwife.

Boogiemumma Wed 25-May-11 17:13:55

I put on a stone in the first 12 weeks but it evened out. I'm nearly 38 weeks now and habve gained 2 and a half/ 3 stone in total. I've been reasonably good and maintained some excercise up til now -(physically can't now because of SPD) so I'm not worried. I'll lose it after with a bit of effort - you will too smile

Im so glad for this post!! I am 11 weeks, and have put on just over half a stone... i know that i am going to put weight on lol and this doesnt bother me... but i was worried as everywhere i read it said that you dont start putting any on until the 2nd trimester!!

sevendwarves Fri 27-May-11 09:12:00

I'm nearly 12 weeks and have put on 2lbs, though don't know how as I look about 5 months pregnant!

pregnantmimi Thu 16-Jun-11 14:09:58

Talking to friends family found that woman who are overweight to start with dont put much weight in pregnancy, woman who are ok weights to start with as in not overweight or underweight put on alottt and very thin woman put on about the average amount that should be gained. Im guessing being the ok weight and normally have to control my weight by dieting Im just eating what I want when I want might explain the weight gain up to 12 stone 10 now and 13 weeks. Of course this is what my friends and family experainced not saying everyone like that.

BeeMyBaby Thu 16-Jun-11 14:44:34

I've put on just over a kilo at 16 weeks, I was trying really hard over the first 8 weeks to lose weight which is how its only a kilo over my start weight, I have been trying to keep the weight gain listed on this website as last time I gained over three stone, and my back fat was extremely painful.

LittleBlueBoat Thu 16-Jun-11 14:51:57

I was told that i was only allowed to put on a stone in the whole pg. At 15 weeks i have lost 3.2 kilos.

Makey Thu 16-Jun-11 14:58:27

I've only put 1 lb on but my stomach has definatley incresed a dress size which is where expandable buttons have come in handy.. I'm about 11 weeks..

TallulahBetty Thu 16-Jun-11 19:11:20

17 weeks today and I've lost half a stone since my booking appt - morning sickness!!

I expect it will start to creep back on soon. TBH I'm slightly overweight so it's given me a bit more leeway for when I pile it on later on!!

pregnantmimi Mon 20-Jun-11 23:20:25

well put another half on then lost it weight hasnt changed last 2 weeks so hoping its calmed down cause was gaining very fast my bmi ok thou the midwife said.xx cant seem to eat as much now in second trimester get full up fastx

joyful2day Tue 21-Jun-11 09:41:57
