Post subject: weight gain in pregnancy
Hi everyone,

I'm 17 weeks pregnant and before getting pregnant i weighed 8 1/2 stone.
Last night i weighed myself and i was 9 stone, but this morning i weighed myself again and i was 8 stone 10????

is this normal? and my scales definately arent broken, i mean i dont think anything is wrong with the baby but surely my dinner doesnt weigh 4 pounds? lol

can anyone help with this

thanks

Catherine xxxx

yes i am really small. whats called petite, im only 5 ft 3!! lol

tall people generally are heavier and anyway it doesnt matter about weight gain as long as the baby is healthy Smile

HI all,

Pre-pregnancy I weighed 10st 3lbs and my height is 5ft 7ins. With two weeks left until my due date I now weigh 13st 2lbs! Embarassed

Apparantly our meals make a difference to our daily weight, as does 'having a number 2'. It will usually only be about 2lbs either way but you'll probably notice that you are lighter first thing in the morning and heavier in the evening.

My MW told me off for weighing myself so much, but if you feel the need to do it, as I do, it's probably best to weigh yourself the same sort of time and in the evening.

as long as your didnt have weight issues before being pregnant your weight will definately fluctuate - my midwife told me the worst thing you can do is constantly weight yourself because it can become a bit addictive and may cause a lot of unnessesary anxiety - your scans will tell the medical professionals all they need to know about your babys weight and if they say all is fine with baby dont worry
i lost a lot of weight just before pregnancy and now i have only gained 6lbs at 14 weeks -i am 5'11 - am just keeping an eye of minimising "fatty" foods and little to no junk food - apparently most weight gain doesnt start until last trimester so give the scales a miss
take care

petra lou - at this stage i think you owe it to yourself to eat whatever you fancy regardless of the calories - and hey Galaxy well thats not a sin but its a definate pleasure - i cant get it here in sweden and theres nuffin like it !!!
if all else fails baby might get a huge sugar rush and want out !!!!! LOL
curries and sex apparently are the key to getting it all going !!
take huge care and good luck
