I lost weight in last pregnancy due to morning sickness I put everything back on and a little more when had LO. I was overweight last time but there was never a big issue with my midwife I was never under consultant care for my weight but then again I had a consultant for other issues so I dunno whether that made a difference or maybe it depends on areas as well?
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 agree - for me the reason I want a big momma's club is so that I can chat with women going through the same things as me and to get advice from those that have already been there and done it.
I am trying so hard to be good with my eating habits both for me and my baby, if I can crack that then I can concentrate on losing weight in the future. I'm reluctant to say "after the birth" cos it's such early days I'm so afraid that something awful will happen. Trying to stay positive though!
I'm plus size also, had my first midwife appointment the other day, not sure on my exact weight as I've never been one for weighing myself and go by how I feel and clothes, midwife did my BMI though and I am in the obese category I'm 6ft and currently size 18 ish pushing 20 in some clothes, I've always struggled with my weight, I'm of a stocky build anyway but when I've stayed around a 16 I've been happy.
Midwife was helpful re: weight gain etc during pregnancy as that was a big concern for me, its diffficult enough to lose/maintain without adding lots of extra pregnancy pounds. She has said that I could opt for something like weightwatchers of slimming world and technically go through pregnancy loosing some fat but still staying healthy for the bub and not gaining too much.
I'm due December so a little before you but would be good to have someone to chat to etc
Hi all im new to the forums saw this thread and thought i'd join ya, before i got pregnant with my daughter (now 2 yrs old) i was a healthy 10st but put 4st on during pregnancy due to a very large appetite and no self restraint, then after i had Madison i somehow got PCOS wich wasnt diagnosed until last september, anyway i ended up gaining another 5st so in september i weighed in at 19st, i then got depression and literally lived on 1 slice of bread or a cup of soup every 4-5days, not the healthiest way to lose weight and i certinaly do not recommend it but i did lose 3 1/2st so now i weigh in at 16.5st wich makes my BMI roughly 36, and iv just found out im 4weeks pregnant, total shock wasnt trying but so happy about it, after bein diagnosed with PCOS i thought there was no hope of me gettin pregnant (wich caused my depresion) but now my little miracle has happened and im over the moon
anyway sorry for the essay im goin to see my doctor on friday and start the ball rollin for midwife apps and stuff, so fingers crossed all goes well
