That was the mistake I made first time around and really don't want to gian weight from early on. Can I ask has your weight gone up quickly this time or have you managed to control it. I ballooned first time and still carrying some of that weight now so trying to balance my diet this time more and hoping for a much slower weight gain. I am probably about 1 1/2 stone overweight at the moment.
Much earlier with my second, I put on less weight (three and a half stone instead of four ) but looked bigger.
This time (11 weeks tomorrow) still in normal size 12 jeans, fit find but my pants are a little snug I am about 3/4 of a stone more than I normally am as put a bit on duetolovelywine when I finished bf 6 months ago
I did. I didn't 'pop out' till about 18/19w first time, but this time it was more like 12w. I looked about a month or two further along than I really was for most of this pregnancy, until the last couple of months when it slowed down. Now, at 38+4, I'm about the same size as I was at the end last time, and have gained a bit less weight (but started off a bit heavier anyway).
I am 6 weeks pregnant with DC2 and so far no changes at all whereas with DS1 I feel like I bloated out straight away. I think because I started relaxing with my eating and ate things I wouldn't normally eat. This time I am eating as per normal and exercising as per normal. Give it a couple of weeks though when MS kicks in and I will probably start eating like a maniac!
Yes showed earlier with second, but I'm carrying a lot smaller this time than I did with ds. I'm 35+4 and have only put on 17lb, whereas I gained a few stone last pregnancy - not sure how much is the difference between a boy and a girl (this bump is female!) or how much is my eating healthily this time. With ds I craved cake and curry, but with this little darling I've craved fruit and veg and not been as hungry. I ate lots in the first 4 months however in an attempt to keep the sickness at bay. Despite not gaining much weight I still think my bump looks quite big, just not as out of proportion as it looked last time!
blimey yes! first time not much happened for weeks to the point my partner would shout at my tummy 'when am i going to see you??'
this time i popped before 12 weeks. i am 37 weeks and i seem to have had 3 massive growth spurts as opposed to gradual. seems to have been around 10 weeks, 18 weeks and 26 weeks. now i am spot on 37 cm or 37 weeks :-). everything levels out in the end - i am proof!
