Any big momma's out there?


Hi! I am what doctors term "clinically obese" and just discovered a couple of days ago that I am expecting my first. Only about 4wks gone so still early days.

Are there any other "larger" mums-to-be out there that would like to become buddies so we can compare notes?

To be honest although I am so excited, I'm also pretty scared as I have no idea what to expect


Hi Ladies! Please feel free to join us if you are wtt, ttc, pregnant or already a mummy - anyone is welcome xxx

I am very big (eugh hate writing that), really should have lost weight prior to conceiving but hey too late now.

I'm due on 31 Dec (by my calculations) and not seen Dr or midwife yet.

When are you due?

I was classed as obese but I was losing weight for my wedding doing the cambridge diet, which is a liquid diet, had to stop when I found out I was pregnant, so now i'm classed as overweight...which I was quite pleased about. Never thought I would be pleased about calling myself overweight.

Best of luck to you, I hope you have a happy and healthy pregnancy.

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

I had a friend who lost a lot of weight on the cambridge diet. I wish I had the will power to stick with something long enough! You must be so proud of yourself.

Good luck to you too

I am cuddly...the one thing that really really gets to me is seeing splashed all over my maternity notes 'high BMI'...it drives me crazy!!

There are people out there that are bigger than me that have healthy babies...my body managed to conceive perfectly well on the first month of actively trying, so I have faith in it.

The downside of being bigger is the glucose tolerance tests...I had my first last week at 14 weeks, and will have another at 28 weeks.

The only comment my midwife has made on my weight is 'we will have to make sure we use a large blood pressure cuff on you'...LOL
