sailorsgal Thu 20-Sep-12 22:07:00

I was going to go to bed but think I will stay up and watch.

shittingit Thu 20-Sep-12 22:07:50

It seems quite harsh from the outset which makes me a bit hmm

timeforanewname Thu 20-Sep-12 22:08:56

Me, did that lady just say she used to be a size 10 and she's now an 18?????

Itsgottabebags Thu 20-Sep-12 22:09:21

Me. Quite [hmmm]about it

beingginger Thu 20-Sep-12 22:09:45

Yes, no way is she an 18

timeforanewname Thu 20-Sep-12 22:10:19

I thought she did.

ggirl Thu 20-Sep-12 22:10:48

she's wy bigger than an 18

shittingit Thu 20-Sep-12 22:11:43

I dont think any of the ladies shown so far are an 18.

ggirl Thu 20-Sep-12 22:12:47

one an 18 and other a 20 hmm
getting them mixed up now tho

timeforanewname Thu 20-Sep-12 22:13:14

I missed the start, how many weeks is Jenna?

DesperatelySeekingSedatives Thu 20-Sep-12 22:14:04

No! without wanting to sound rude, none of these ladies so far are an 18.

MrsTomHardy Thu 20-Sep-12 22:16:26

Im watching too!

Very pretty ladies but they must be bigger than they say they are.
Im a 20 and im sure im a tad smaller than them...blush

shittingit Thu 20-Sep-12 22:16:46

Both are v tall though. Might just be me but so far the tone of the programme and some of the professionals featured in it seems lacking in any erm empathy? Quite judgy even.

i'm watching it but i've just seen the lady who cried. she said that the nurse was harsh with the sling bit but she was only being truthful and preparing her, she seemed to take it as a joke, i can get up on my own.... but she doesnt know that she can, cos she hasnt fallen yet!

I'm a bit confused!

SquashedSquirrel Thu 20-Sep-12 22:17:08

The Midwife was wearing Fimo fruit round her neck! Class

<misses point>

getrealandgetalife Thu 20-Sep-12 22:18:13

oh and if you told me i might have a small baby then took my blood pressure, mine would be raised too!

shittingit Thu 20-Sep-12 22:18:47

I'd be in bits if anyone told me they would need a hoist to lift me if I fell or that lack feeling movements was due to my weight, these ladies are brave letting them film it.

MrsTomHardy Thu 20-Sep-12 22:19:42

Jenna is 21 stone!! She cant be a size 18 then surely

getrealandgetalife Thu 20-Sep-12 22:21:13

i wear a size 22 top and I'm 11 stone

ringodingo Thu 20-Sep-12 22:21:43

is the fruit round her neck midwife secretly hoping the ladies will munch on it insted of the crap they have been eating!!!

shittingit Thu 20-Sep-12 22:21:45

Think she's using humour as defence thingymebob takes off amateur shrink cap

getrealandgetalife Thu 20-Sep-12 22:21:51

but i have no arse... I am a freak!

numptymark1 Thu 20-Sep-12 22:22:13

I'm six foot tall and did weigh 21st at one point (thank god I lost weight) and I was a size 24

no way is she an 18
