I'm new to mumsnet so I hope I'm posting in the right place...

I'm currently 17+3 weeks pregnant with my second boy and finally over the nausea stage where I seemed to eat whatever I could just to feel better!! I constantly felt like I had a hangover everyday and the taste in my mouth was unreal at times!

I did gain a few pounds between week 4 and 14 because of it but because of my first pregnancy I seem to be thinking about weight gain and what's normal a lot more than maybe I should be?

My bmi with my first was already in the 'overweight' category, at only 4ft 11 I started at around 9st10 and I didn't batter an eyelid about what I looked like during the pregnancy, until my ds was born and I refused to have any photos taken of me with him...My biggest regret!!! All I know is that when ds was 6 weeks old I went back to slimming world weighing in at 11st. It took me a long time but I got to my target weight of 8st2 and I have hovered around that for a year or so.

We went on hols last sept, then had xmas and so I found out I was pregnant weighing 8st 8 - Considered a 'healthy' bmi but only just!!

So here I am, still going to Slimming world when I can face it, still trying to stick to plan most days but totally enjoying way too many syns most days!

So here's my digits:

17 + 3
Start weight - 8st 8
Current - 8st 13
Gain = 5lbs.

My midwife didn't even weigh me at my 16 week appoint ans I won't see her now until 28 weeks so i'm asking in here...Only if you want to share....

Thanks for reading!

I'm 23 weeks and have gained 10lb in total so far.

Starting was 9 stone 7 and I'm now 10 stone 3. I'm 5ft 8.

I've only gained on bump and boobs so just letting it happen. I'm trying to focus on my 5 a day, my water and some exercise rather than what I weigh.

Midwives don't seem to do weighing now. I think as long as you're looking after yourself and eating good food it's all good. I don't think there is a normal.

Thanks for your reply!

I was running up until last week but I've stopped now due to pelvic pain, I just need to get my butt in gear and start something else!

HettyB Mon 04-May-15 15:58:48

I think that's absolutely fine! I'm also 17+3 and have gained 7lb so far.

lucylu79 Mon 04-May-15 16:41:05

Thanks Hetty!!

How are you feeling at 17+3??

27 weeks and have gained 13 pounds. MW told me they dont weigh or advise on weight gain now!

According to a pregnancy book I have it should be roughly
1st trim 4-5lbs
2nd trim 12-14lbs
3rd trim 12-14lbs

17+4 a stone sad a fucking STONE!!!!!!

Unthoughtknown Mon 04-May-15 16:59:35

12+4 here and three lbs on. Feels like more though, especially at the end of the day.

HelenF350 Mon 04-May-15 17:02:39

32 weeks 27.5lbs. shock

losthermind Mon 04-May-15 17:07:53

24+2 and have gained 8lbs

Hellohellohowareyou Mon 04-May-15 17:10:26

32 and I'm lighter than pre preg by a lb or 2 thanks to hyperemesis. I was obese to begin with though, such a nice word that grin

Superexcited Mon 04-May-15 17:14:12

I'm 16+5 and I have lost 4lb overall to date.
I lost 7lb between weeks 5 and 12 but have since regained 3lb of it. I had no appetite in the first trimester but now my appetite is almost insatiable.

Purpleball Mon 04-May-15 17:14:27

I was also obese to begin with, I'm also type 2 diabetic which stops me eating much chocolate, cake and ice cream etc.

I've lost 2kg (4.5lbs) since I got pregnant - I'm 20 weeks tomorrow.

19+5 and have gained 10lbs. Didn't put any weight on in the first trimester so that is just in the last 7 weeks.

Superexcited Mon 04-May-15 17:14:48

Btw: I am within normal BMI.

misssmilla1 Mon 04-May-15 17:16:40

19+3 and gained 11 pounds. I figure if I can do the same in the next 20 weeks then it shouldn't be too hideous...

It's different to normal weight gain tho as I've probably gained 2-3lbs on my boobs and the rest on my stomach and hips

Hellohellohowareyou Mon 04-May-15 17:17:06

32 weeks my post should say. The frustrating thing is now that I've got my appetite back and am now long being sick every day I cant manage much anyway as baby is taking up too much room or I get heartburn!

Number3cometome Mon 04-May-15 17:22:09

29 weeks and have gained 2 1/2 stone, I had a BMI of 25 to start and no one is concerned. I do not look 'fat' and my breasts and belly have got big.

Stinkylinky Mon 04-May-15 17:23:27

30+5 5"7
Starting weight: 9 stone 7lb
Current weight: 10 stone 8lb
15lb difference

I'm all bump and boobs!

DefinitelyNotElsa Mon 04-May-15 17:23:47

I'm 19+1 and have gained 3lbs. At booking, my BMI was 32 (gah!), so I have been careful to avoid too much of a gain.

60sname Mon 04-May-15 17:28:06

19 + 4
Start weight: 9st
Now: 9st 6 (though seems to fluctuate a lot more than pre-pg during the day)

Hellohellohowareyou Mon 04-May-15 17:28:52

It's interesting to see what everything such as placenta, fluid and baby weigh by 40 weeks. Think it's around a stone

itsallgonetitsup91 Mon 04-May-15 17:30:50

Starting weight: 10 stone 7 at 5ft7
17 weeks and a bit
Last weighed myself a few weeks ago and I was up a stone aaarrrghh

lucylu79 Mon 04-May-15 17:34:35

Interesting to read all the different gains and even losses, just goes to show that one book says is considered 'normal' is not often the case!

I just hope I can keep this up, I do have my treats but hopefully my food is healthy so i'm keeping the gains to just baby weight hopefully.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to reply!
