Everyone is different. If nobody says anything to you at your next midwife appointment I would try not to worry. I am 22 weeks, pretty physically active, eat relatively healthy and have gained quite a bit quite fast. But my pregnancy is healthy and I can still do yoga every day so all is good! I know this wasn't the answer you were looking for but from what I have obsessively googled seen from bump pics etc everyone varies so much that there is no such thing as "normal"!
There is no "normal" - in my first pregnancy I'd gained maybe 7lb by 20 weeks. In my second - current pregnancy - I'd gained around 2st by that point (yes, really).
I've been eating well and exercising regularly - still doing circuits classes at 37 weeks - so I don't know what to put the weight gain this time down to. The midwife isn't concerned though, so I'm trying not to worry either!
Thank you for your advice. I previously suffered from eating disorders for about 7 or 8 years, which I have been recovered from for about 4 years. I suppose weight gain etc will always be difficult for me but I wanted to make sure I am somewhere in the healthy braket. You've really reassured me that everyone's body is different and I just need to be eating well and staying active and the scales aren't really anything to go by! Thank you x
I honestly wouldn't obsess about it. I stopped weighing myself after 20 weeks as I had put on nearly 2 stone and I was getting depressed (also an ED sufferer). Now I'm in the third trimester I know I can't stop or slow weight gain so I just try to eat healthy food.
I don't deny myself though, my sister put 4 St on when pregnant and lost it all in six months.
I've never weighed myself in pregnancy, only the booking in appointment and at 37 weeks appointment which I have gained 20lbs in all. I don't think it's a good idea to weigh yourself in pregnancy, your always worry your not putting enough on or too much.
Same as running first pregnancy terrible morning sickness o I lost weight in the early days by 30 weeks I was a couple pounds up- second pregnancy I was a stone and a half up by 20 weeks. So really everyone is different. I was worried both times and both times had a good chat with midwife - if you're still concerned maybe ask at next app.
