now 34 weeks and I've gained 10 pound, which I'm thinking is quite good. I'm wondering if this is mainly baby. Just wondering what others were?

7.12 and 9.1. I put hardly anything on with either of them but hyperemesis will do that.

Size 8 and could still fit jeans on with bump over the top!
9-3 ds.

I gained about 15lbs with each pregnancy. Baby 1 was 8lbs 8oz, number 2 was 8lbs 5oz.

I put on a stone and a tiny 4pound premie...

PastysPrincess Thu 23-Mar-17 18:46:57

I lost 7 lbs and my son was 11lb 9oz.

With all three babies I was half a stone lighter than when I fell pregnant the day after delivery. They weighed me in hospital after my first (20+ years ago) and I weighed myself after the second two. They must have decided giving birth was bad enough without weighing a new mum.

6-9, 8-2 and 9-5. Vomited rings round myself for 20 weeks with all of them grin

8lb 11oz.

I don't actually know how much I weight in the end, but I think all the weight I had put on was baby weight, I managed to get back into my old jeans within weeks. I've put on weight since then though, too many sleepless nights and takeaways! :D

I didn't gain much - bit more with the second than the first. Maybe 1.5 stone max? Babies were not too heavy, one just under & the other just over 7lb. Now grown men both just under 6ft. One quite lean the other more chunky.

I lost weight with both of mine. 9.9 and 10.6.

MrsBungle Thu 23-Mar-17 18:51:28

I was 2 stone lighter at the end of my pregnancy with dc1 (hyperemesis) and baby was 7lbs 9oz. I was 15lbs lighter again the day after giving birth so I'm guessing baby and associated stuff was about that!

witsender Thu 23-Mar-17 19:00:24

I barely put on with #2, DS was 9lb11oz.

ILikeSalmon Thu 23-Mar-17 19:26:09

Both bumps so small no one belived I was so pregnant

DuRezidal Thu 23-Mar-17 19:59:59

I gained less than a stone with my daughter and she was 5lb 14 and born at 37 weeks.

Blackfellpony Thu 23-Mar-17 20:06:00

I was tiny, DS was also tiny at 5lb! I measured 2 weeks behind at most checks.

I think it should have been picked up on but midwives weren't concerned at all through my pregnancy.

AyeAmarok Thu 23-Mar-17 20:08:24

Put on just over a stone at 42 weeks, baby was 6.14.

Every midwife commented that I was "all baby", and the amniotic fluid was on the low side of normal range so bump was neat. I was back to pre-pregnancy weight (8 stone) already when I weighed myself 3 days after delivery.

I kept waiting for the bit where the weight piled on in the last month because of the extra fat for breastfeeding, but it just never happened (almost feel robbed!). I did keep active though.

10 lbs isn't a good weight gain if you start out fairly slender.
fwiw, I'm not petite. I put on about 2 stone. Babies were 6.5-8.5 lbs. I was back in pre-pregnancy clothes within a few weeks. I don't see how I could have gained less than almost 30 lbs.

happy2bhomely Thu 23-Mar-17 20:48:25

I've never gained more than a stone with all 5 of mine.

They weighed 8lb13, 9lb7, 7lb15, 11lb and 7lb.

After dc2 I was back in size 10 jeans at 5 days. It just fell off me.

4 years after my youngest and I've put on nearly 3 stone! angry

Nospringflower Thu 23-Mar-17 20:50:51

Gained between 11 lb and a stone with each and babies were 71/2, 7 and 6'1.

SleepFreeZone Thu 23-Mar-17 20:52:33

I carried small and mine were 7lb 8 and 7lb 11

BounceBounceSplishSplash Thu 23-Mar-17 20:53:51

On the other hand, i put on shitloads (3 stone by 34 weeks) but baby was only 5lb 4oz.

pastabest Thu 23-Mar-17 21:00:31

I lost a stone during pregnancy, baby was 7lb 2,. I was the thinnest and lightest I had been for 10 years in the first few weeks after birth. quickly put it back on in jammy dodgers though

preciouspig Thu 23-Mar-17 21:41:57

I gained 8 pound baby weighed 6.2 x

sophie150 Fri 24-Mar-17 09:05:46

I gained 12 lbs . Baby 6 lb 4
Lost all 12 lb when gave birth. Put it all back on during mat leave - breastfeeding made me absolutely starving!

dodi1978 Fri 24-Mar-17 09:15:45

I only gained about 10 pounds in both my pregnancies. Not sure why given that I didn't do much vomiting and that I am a size 16!

First baby 6 pounds 6 ounces (slightly premature at 36 weeks), second baby 7 pounds 3 ounces (39 weeks).

Felt rather smug when I wore my old jeans for a midwife check up three days after birth grin].

Then came the chocolate brownies in maternity leave shock
