I'm 22+5 and have gained a stone, but that's from six weeks - I'm not sure what I was right at the start. But I assume I was a couple of pounds lower so I've basically put on the same as you, 16 in 22. I don't think it's too bad, but I do feel fat and it's showing on my face. I decided yesterday to try to do something about it - not a major diet, but being more sensible than I have been. I'm mainly worried that the baby will be huge!
I'd put on about a stone by 20 weeks mainly due to tiredness, hunger and no sickness. I only gained another 1st 5lbs in the next 20 weeks (and I mainly had a diet consisting of cake) which made 33lbs in total, all of which came off within about 6 months. Don't worry about it.
I wouldn't worry about it honestly! I weighed myself (before I knew I was pregnant) and I was 7.5 stone. Changed my doctors at around 30ish weeks pregnant and need to do a health check thing when the registered me. Weighed me and I was nearly 11 stone 😳. My baby was 8.9 when he was born. So a big baby for someone like me who was a size 6! I lost it straight away pretty much, I'm now a size 10 in jeans as I've suddenly gained a waist and hips lol but putting on weight is to be expected, you have another human inside you. I wouldn't worry about it too much. You'll lose it when baby is born (as you don't get time to eat in the day 🙈) xx
Nobody can ever till how big or small baby will be. Because I have a petite/small frame everyone said I'd have a little 6lbs baby. Doesn't help I went 10 days overdue and had to be induced (might be why he was so big!)
I put on 3 stone during my last pregnancy and now at 9 weeks pp I'm just about starting to fit back into my pre-pregnancy pants. I had definitely put on more than 16lb by 22 weeks, and I pretty much stopped weighing myself at that point too. Baby was born at a healthy 7lb 7oz. I know it's easy to say don't worry about it but I was freaked out about it myself. Just try and relax a bit and eat as healthily as you can without depriving yourself.
I'm 35 weeks and have put on 2 stone not overly impressed but it's around the same as I was with my son and I lost it all within a few weeks of having him. Hoping I can curb my appetite for the last few weeks and not gain any more!
I found that throughout I had little growth spurts- so I put nothing on at all until about 16 weeks, then seemed to pile it on around 20-24 and then not much again until 28 when it started piling on again! So you may find it slows down a little as you go on anyway.
I really don't think you should worry! I had gained 17lbs by 22 weeks, but it slowed down after that and gained 30lbs in total. Had DC2 almost three weeks ago and lost 1 stone in hospital and the 2nd stone in the next week. Now back in most of my normal clothes though have droopy c-section pooch this time.
Ah ok. I cant say im too worried about the losing it bit. Its more the size of baby and risk of diabetes. Doesn't help everyone keeps telling me how big i have got past two weeks or so (95% of which is in belly area)
Ah here I'm in the same boat. I just feel fat and flabby. 3rd baby, 25 weeks, tummy muscles are well stretched from the other two, had extra tummy fat to start this time. I'm very careful what I wear so that when I sit my tummy doesn't fold 😭😭😭 DH says it's in my head but I feel pretty self conscious about it!! Not sure where I am weight wise but at 22 weeks I was up 11lbs overall. I'm sure that's been added to now!
