Hiya ladies

I am 11 weeks pg and i have put on about 10lb already!!! My bmi was 22 which is smack bang in the normal range but i am really concerned that i am putting on weight too quickly!! i have not put any on my face or anywhere else apart from my abdomen and boobs ( boobs are only a little bigger.

I dont usually put on weight that easily, have always been a slim size 10. It does not mean a multiple pregnancy does it?? Am i just going to be really big??

It would seem I have gained a total of 8lbs since I got pregnant. Thats....nothing. I don't understand as I am eating normally. I do alot of exercise in the form of gardening and walking but surely I should have gained more by now!!?? Baby is measuring 1.5cm less than weeks so its prob got to do with weight gain or lack of.

I expected to be fat as a house by now, I always looked forward to scoffing everything in sight when I got pregnant but I just don't have the capacity I used to have. My stomach has been squidged. Sad

I started out at 7st 10 because I lost some weight early on owing to morning sickness. I was quite happy to be up to 8.5 by 16 weeks but got a bit of a shock when I weighed myself last night (only two weeks later) and I was 8.10! I've never been anything over 8.4 in my life and it's a strange feeling seeing myself edging up the scale. I have been eating a lot of cheese, so perhaps that has something to do with it Laughing

I really just want me and the baby to be healthy and if I carry on eating (mostly) good things and doing my antenatal exercise classes I'm sure I'll be fine.
