Hi ladies, I'm 9 weeks pregnant and am expanding daily! I just caught a glimpse of my bottom and I aware it has literally doubled since being pregnant! Also my tummy is massive I know it's too early to get a baby bump so maybe I'm just seriously bloated but I look about 5 months pregnant at least! Also just got on the scales my pre pregnancy Weight was always between 10st 5-8lbs I'm now 12 stone!!! Surely I can't keep gaining at this rate I'll end up putting on about 10 stone, will my weight gain slow up & balance out, or am I destined to be lifted out my house by craine come labour day?!
It sounds to me like you are retaining lots of fluid, this also happened me, I gained 10lbs in such a short space of time and over 2 weeks it all came off and I lost weight. Don't worry, eat healthily and don't 'diet'
Thanks all. My diet is really good the only thing I'm doing differently is making sure I get breakfast everyday which I usually skipped 3-4 times a week, but it's not like I'm eating a fry up it's either porridge, toast or weetabix. Im also drinking loads more water thinking about it so many ur right and im hanging on to that - in mu bum cheeks!! Exercise wise I'm doing the same as always - except abs exercises. I walk daily, do a Zumba class twice a week and do a 30 minute resistance workout 2-3 times a week. I manage a natural health & exercise centre and havnt told anyone at work I'm pregnant yet but know people are wondering why I'm gaining so much and probably thinking my centre doesn't work! I'm actually bad for my own business lol
I'm lucky enough not to have experienced morning sickness yet if it starts maybe my Weight will balance out - not that that's how I want it to!
I have polycystic overies - well the right one. I always have to watch my weight because of this as I put it on super easily, not sure if this may have something o do with the weight gain in pregnancy.
Moved house last week and out of London so havnt seen a midwife yet am organising that tomorrow so I appreciate ur advice, you guys have been my mid wives so far
