Hey ladies

I'm currently 11w pregnant and 131lbs (I'm only 5ft so look quite big) I was about 108lbs when I got married a year and 8months ago so feel really rubbish about the idea of putting on any extra pregnancy weight on top of the weight I already gained!

I'd like to try and gain no more than 10lb during this pregnancy, have recently joined up to SW from next week so if anyone wants to hop on this journey with me please feel free to xxx

Please don't feel bad about putting on weight when you're pregnant!!

Here is a breakdown of where the weight goes
Baby: 7.5 pounds
Placenta: 1.5 pounds
Amniotic fluid: 2 pounds
Uterine enlargement: 2 pounds
Maternal breast tissue: 2 pounds
Maternal blood volume: 4 pounds
Fluids in maternal tissue: 4 pounds
Maternal fat stores: 7 pounds

I use this pregnancy calculator www.calculator.net/pregnancy-weight-gain-calculator.html to make sure I'm in the right range each week
