Weight gain...

Typically what did others gain throught?

I'm 34 weeks and up until 6 weeks ago I was lighter than starting, now from nowhere I've gained 8lbs. I'm massive (bump wise)

With dd1 I never weighed myself, dd2 I put on almost two stone.

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.

BMI of 22 at booking. I feel I should have gained more, the way I eat. This baby really likes food wink

MW has never mentioned it and I do run around after a 1 and 4 year old. I shouldn't complain really

I'm due on Wednesday and have gained 13lbs in pregnancy.

You are very lucky in that case! Providing of course baby is growing as he/she should be & the MW has no worries. . .count yourself lucky!

I'm fully expecting to gain in the region of 2 stone overall (hopefully no more). . .I'm prepared for it!

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

With all three of my pregnancies I have gained 5.5 stone, pregnancy does not suit me sad it does come off though!

applecore0317 Tue 03-Feb-15 11:36:45

24 weeks and 15lbs gained I think

applecore0317 Tue 03-Feb-15 11:36:58

BMI was 20

Number3cometome Tue 03-Feb-15 11:59:07

DS - 3 stone on
DD - 4 stone on
DC3 - 16+3 probably 1st on so far

I have lost the weight after each child, my BMI at starting this time was 26 so slightly over, but no cause for concern.

I just think some ladies put on more weight than others.

I have a good friend who had actually lost weight by the time she gave birth!

Hellohellohowareyou Tue 03-Feb-15 13:23:03

I'm 19 weeks today and I'm actually 8 lbs lighter than I was pre pregnancy. I have had horrendous HG though and my BMI at booking in was 34, baby growing fine!

Wenglish Tue 03-Feb-15 13:37:46

I've put on 13lbs at 20 weeks but I don't tend to put on anymore weirdly.

Wenglish Tue 03-Feb-15 13:38:45

I don't look any different it's all on bump and my now enormous boobs!

Kemlex13 Tue 03-Feb-15 21:52:38

I'm still bf dd1 so boobs are massive! I had/ have HG which has been brutal and probably explained the weight loss at first.

It sounds silly, worried about not putting weight on huh lol

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.
