I am trying to make sure I put on the weight that I am supposed to without gaining more than necessary but I am not sure where I should be at. The only advise given by my midwife was most women put on 2-3 stone.
In my first trimester I was constantly nauseous which was helped only by eating carbs. Because of the tiredness and sickness I also wasn't going to the gym as much as usual. I put on 5 pounds
However in the last two weeks (now at 14 weeks) the sickness has subsided and I'm back to eating healthier but with a couple of extra snacks when I have felt hungry and I am also back at my gym classes 3 times per week (5 pre pregnancy). However I have now lost 2lbs of the weight I had gained and a little worried as to whether I should be losing again.
I don't want to be eating extra for the sake of it but I am not restricting myself when I am feeling hungry I eat healthy snacks like fruit /nuts/yoghurt
To give some context my pre pregnancy weight was 120lbs (5'4")
