Just found out I'm expecting its early days yet as only 5+3 but am slightly worried how much weight I will gain as I'm already a good 3 stone overweight, with my first dd I didn't put loads on as I was quite ill during pregnancy so lost some and I wasn't as big as I was now to start now! In fact I have put 2 stone on since having her she is 34 months old now. Has anyone done slimming world while pregnant?? Thanks for reading xxx

You are allowed to do Slimming World during pregnancy. I believe Slimming World is endorsed by The Royal College of Midwives. They will probably say on their website. Somebody more knowledgable will be along shortly.

Congratulations on your lovely news. smile

Yes definately worth doing.
I did it to put on not much weight.
They eed agreement from your midwife and an aim for each week.

I gave it up when I got pregnant as was craving all the bad carbs but you can do it while pregnant with agreement from you midwife.
My old consultant is currently pregnant and carrying on. It is more healthy eating plan than diet and you get extra high calcium choices while pregnant.

Hi, I got pregnant a month after starting slimming world. In the first three months I managed to get down to my target of loosing a stone, most of that in my early stages of pregnancy. I put 3lb shy of 2 stone on in total, but was only 10lb heavier at the end of my pregnancy than I was when I started slimming world. I was back to my goal weight five weeks after having DD. Have since put it all back on but have started slimming world again.
