Hey girls!

I have a BMI of 35 so am not the smallest of people. Haha. Don't let my prof pic trick you, I starved myself quite efficiently and altho it was only 7 months ago gained more than 10kgs before conceiving Bambi,

As far as I can read overweight women can have longer labours and of course an increase in chance of gestational diabetes, which I'm already at an increased chance of getting as my mother had it and I loooove the lollies.

My book what to expect when your expecting says that being obese can make a doctors job measuring the uterus harder and Also it can make c-sections and their recovery more difficult. Apparently we can get extra symptoms too like extra backache, swelling, varicose vains and heartburn.

It says a normal weight range woman should gain 13 kgs an overweight woman 7-9 and an obese woman on average 6, but then it goes on to say that these are averages and your doctor may change or have a different amount than these.

Love betheney

Hi all - I am also a BIIIIIG momma - size 24/26 in trousers..... guess BMI is about 50???? shock horror!

am in therapy at minute and am absolutely NOT dieting - just trying to eat what I want along the lines of 'overcoming overeating'.... doing pretty well actually!

really hope we can have a big momma's forum, as long as it doesn't turn into weight loss focus...I know some people choose to continue slimming whilst pregnant, and that's cool, but I really don't want to put that in my head again!

can't wait to be a mummy!! so good to read all your posts, very reassuring

I am due around the 11th January - which happens to be my birthday!

I have tried so many times to lose weight, but it always piles back on again. Hasn't stopped me conceiving though so something must be right! I have booked an appointment with my doctor on Tuesday morning so just have to wait and see what she says about how my weight will affect things!

Just praying that the little bean sticks now
Hey sweetie!

I am due 11th January too, hoping for a sticky one!

I'm classed as obese Grrr hate that word!

I started the beginning of the year at 18st and I am now down to 16st and then got my BFP I'm still classed as obese but am pleased with how well I've done so far. I'm going to try and maintain my weight as best as I can during my PG as I really don't want to put the whole lot back on! I'm comfortable with putting some on just not the whole lot!

Hi can I join Im new

Im also a big momma I found out I was pregnant yesterday so Im nearly 5 weeks. We have been trying for about a yr but I joined SW 3 weeks ago and Ive lost 8 pounds which Im quite proud of and I really think I got pregnant from losing a little bit of weight. Im worried now that Ill just put it back on plus a lot more. I have been told that I can carry on with Slimming World but not sure how it would work.Hopefully off to Drs tomorrow so Ill find more info out. Sorry for the rant,lol xx

Hey

Ive popped over from 2nd tri to say hi to everyone

Im a big momma too lol. At first i was so worried that weight would be an issue with me and had no one really around for support as in online friends so i think its great what yous are doing here

My weight has been mentioned by my midwive who says i will be put under consultant care and doesnt want me to gain no more than 10 pounds in this pregnancy lol. Ive also had the diabetes tests which came back fine . She also told me that at about 32-33 weeks i would have to have an appointment with the anaethetist.

The only downside about me being bigger is that i havent felt any movement as yet but i was warned of this because we have alot more tissue and fat so would take powerful kicks for some ppl to feel them

As for maternity clothes i only really started to need to wear them from 15 weeks onwards i got some nice stuff off the littlewoods website online and its quite decent priced.

Hope yous all have a happy and healthy 9 months and remember use this forum for anything u need to ask i wish i did lol

Hi I am 5ft 9 and 16stone a size 18 I think my BMI is 32. My midwife did not really say anything at my booking appointment.

I am a bit worried as I am bigger now than I was last time.

I aways remember at Christmas last year I had to go to the nurse at my drs to have an ECG and the nurse asked me when I was due.....I was mortified. She must have felt a right plonker when I told her I was not pregnant!!!!

Nice to meet you all!

I am feeling a little pessamistic aboutt this pregnancy to be honest. Last time I had thrush practically from conception right through to delivery and an implantation bleed day before period was due. This time nothing (other than a missed period and 2 positive tests on consecutive days!)

Hiya - my BMI is also around the 50 mark. Last time I was pregnant I was 3 stone lighter by the time I had delivered thanks to horrendous morning sickness!!
