Were you overweight/high BMI in the first place (at your booking in appt)? In this case I think it is quite common (and even advised) to gain only around 1 stone but everyone is different. I certainly don't think you should be concerned at only an 8lb gain at 34 weeks, as long as you are eating regularly, healthily etc.
I'm 19 weeks on Wednesday & have gained 5lbs so far. . .wondering how this compares with others (although again, everyone is different). Was BMI 19 at booking in.
I'm 22 weeks and have gained 17lbs! So really don't worry. My BMI was 24 when I started. In the last 4 weeks I have ballooned, not eating anymore than usual but it is just piling on :-( very worried about it.
I got to 15/16 weeks without any gain at all, now 25 weeks and I am about 11/12 pound heavier. Maybe more after the weekend ive had stuffing my face lol. Bmi was 18.5 at booking. Gained 4st with first, about 5ib with second and 1st 4/5ib with 3rd x
30+2 with twins Started at 8st 8 and 5ft5 - bit skinny Now 11 stone 9 and still gaining about 1.5-2lbs per week! All belly and a bit of extra padding all over, not concerned really as lots of places say important to gain the weight with multiples. Enjoying stuffing my face really!
I'm 18 weeks today and I've LOST 4st since 2nd October (20 weeks ago) roughly 1 and half st since 8 week booking. Very overweight (still am) so mw happy that I'm losing sensibly at slimming world. Put on 2 stone with dd1 and it kept rising after she was born! I'm now lighter (just) than before pregnancy with her.
I'm 21wks, and have put on 20lb already I was fairly slim before, and it's my second pg, so I have just BALLOONED since 12wks when I stopped feeling constantly nauseous and started troughing everything in sight bit concerned really. Am going to be enormous by June...
