I've put on a stone blush is this within the realms of normal?!

Kayano Sun 09-Oct-11 20:49:44

1 pound

FetchezLaVache Sun 09-Oct-11 20:50:07

I'm sure I'd put on about a stone by then- I put on three in total! I'd hoped to keep it down to two, but there was no way that was happening. But it only took 7 months to lose the lot.

fuckityfuckfuckfuck Sun 09-Oct-11 20:51:32

I've only put on 4 pounds BUT this has been a result of being very careful as by this stage in both previous pregnancies I had put on well over 1.5 stone blush. I just don't want to end up with 4+ stone to lose like both times before. I think a stone at 17 weeks is fine btw, it's within recommendations isn't it? I fully expect my weight gain to pick up from now on so I could end up the same size as before anyway hmm

Feck me at least a stone, maybe more, but the worst was yet to come in water weight, I lost 3 stone in 5 days when I had the baby (pre-eclampsia)

Unless you are stuffing down absolute shite please be kind to yourself.

A lot of the time I was just eating 2% greek yogurt and museli, chicken soup, ryvita and cheese&onion cottage cheese (I know, gross, but it was like an addiction!) and strawberry yazoo.

Dairy fest or what? I hate cow juice! WTF.

Stupid babies hmm

I'm going to get on scales in a mo as I lost weight then gained it... But I think I've put in a bit since then (22weeks) hmmm

CMOTdibbler Sun 09-Oct-11 20:54:25

None. In fact I think I had lost weight as by 25 weeks I was only 1kg over my pre pg weight

AuntiePickleBottom Sun 09-Oct-11 20:56:20

I lost 2 stone due to morning sickness, but once all that stop I made up for it lol

ttalloo Sun 09-Oct-11 20:57:04

I hadn't put on any weight by 17 weeks - I lost a stone in the first 12 weeks with both my pgs and it took me till six/seven months to put it back on. But I was 'lucky' in that being pregnant really wrecked my normally enormous appetite.

mumnotmachine Sun 09-Oct-11 21:07:58

None, I had lost three stone at 18 weeks, at full term pregnant I weighed 1 stone 10lb less than before I was pregnant!!

**has more than made up for it now mind***

microserf Sun 09-Oct-11 21:10:07

yes, normal. lost half stone by this point in first pregnancy. gained one stone by this point in second pregnancy.

you are likely retaining water too, i would not be overly worried. just eat like you normally would, definitely do not diet.

NorfolkNCovern Sun 09-Oct-11 21:10:45

I'd lost at least a stone but I had hyperemesis very badly.

It all went on post birth/breast feeding snacking. Back to pre pregnancy weight now.

MrsHuxtable Sun 09-Oct-11 21:11:43

4 pounds

morethanyoubargainfor Sun 09-Oct-11 21:13:38

too much to mention! In total i put on 6 st shock. so i guess by week 17 somewhere in the region of 3 st shock shock. Pregnancy did funny things to me, i was showing at 7 weeks triple shock. I could never have waited until 12 weeks to announce as everybody knew by then by my huge bump.

laptopdancer Sun 09-Oct-11 21:14:29

I put hardly any on until 30 weeks and then I went KAPOW!

WhenSheWasBadSheWasHorrid Sun 09-Oct-11 21:32:30

I had put on a st

WhenSheWasBadSheWasHorrid Sun 09-Oct-11 21:33:11

Sorry about last post

I put on a stone then,

blackeyedsusan Sun 09-Oct-11 21:35:34

had lost weight with number one, as I felt so sick until about 16 weeks. number 2, put more weight on because I ate rather a lot of cornflakes/ricecrispies/ginger biscuits in an attempt to stave off the nausea.

DaydreamDolly Sun 09-Oct-11 21:37:28

Thanks all! I was still carrying 10 lbs extra from before I was pg with DD so started at a disadvantage. Im jus paranoid cos I'm bigger than I was with 1 st pregnancy.
<arf> at Tattydevine thank you for a very cheering post! thanks
I am not being very careful and am definitely eating more than I would if I wasn't pregnant. But what else have I got other than food?! grin

MrsCog Sun 09-Oct-11 21:37:44

I think about 1/2 stone - I put on quite a lot between weeks 8-12 due to nausea, but it seems to have slowed down now, and it's just bump expansion but I'm back to eating normally rather than every hour to stop feeling sick (am 18+4).

worldgonemad72 Sun 09-Oct-11 21:45:55

ive lost about 8lbs, im now 19 weeks, but ive had really bad sickness and only just starting to get my appetite back.
As long as you eat healthily a steady weight gain is normal.

Lifeissweet Sun 09-Oct-11 21:53:26

Will all these sicky weight losers go away! It's not fair and it's making me feel crap. I'm 23wks and I was quite pleased when I weighed myself today and I've only put on a stone since before I was pregnant. Now I feel rubbish. I'm trying really hard to be careful, but it just keeps coming on.

morethanyoubargainfor Sun 09-Oct-11 21:58:58

well i believe the award for the most amount of weight gained during pregnancy goes to the heffer that still is was ME!

fuckityfuckfuckfuck Sun 09-Oct-11 21:59:29

But a stone at 23 weeks is good going. You've got nothing to worry about

electricalbanana Sun 09-Oct-11 22:00:56

i went from 7 stone to 14 stone by the time i gave birth...i was not a well girl. i did pee a lot after though!
