Pre pregnancy weight v pregnancy weight

Just been noseying over on AIBU and found the weight and height v size thread. Seems a few ladies my height are not gaining much pregnancy weight where-as I can’t seem to stop!

Is this excessive?

5ft 3inches

Pre pregnancy weight 7st 10lbs (size 6 bottoms and 8 tops)

26 weeks and weighing in at 9st 13lbs (guessing I’ll hit the magic 10 over the weekend!)

Can’t fit in my size 6 maternity jeans so now wearing size 8 maternity trousers. Can still fit in a few of my very baggy pre pregnancy tops would guess I’m more a size 12 now.

From what I’ve read … it’s from now on the weight will go on fast and I’m petrified I’m going to gain around 3-4 stone in total!

If someone could guarantee it’ll fall off after I’ve had baby – then great … but I’m scared it won’t be that easy!

Is it unhealthy to have gained so much weight by this stage?

Two stone is average for an av weight/av build woman. Because you were light to start with, it's normal to put on more. It'll all go afterwards, don't worry smile

My mate from running sounds your build - she put on 4 stone with her DC2 - is now back skinny as ever - running like a machine smile
