I've gained about 8 pounds so far, would it be possible to only put on another 9 by week 40. I was slightly overweight to begin with and this is my second i felt horrendous about my weight after the first baby it's one of those things that just gets to me. I'm small and pear shaped so I look like a little tub when over weight. When I'm pregnant it's fine but afterwards no good for my esteem.

My midwife said a stone in the first 20 weeks and another in the second is normal - and to not go over that. Based on that you've not put on much.

I know it's tough but try to just eat healthy, keep active and don't stress about it too much.
