I am also plus size 18. I am 5'8". I am really trying to minimize my weight gain as well. This will be my 4th baby. I was able to minimize weight gain with my 3rd pregnancy and hoping it will be the same this time around. I never fully lost the weight from my first 3 babies and now am worried I will get too heavy with this baby. I've been doing light cardio on my elliptical machine and watching my diet. It is so hard!!

I've been struggling with my weight this go around. I went on birth control and gained 10 pounds in the months leading up to my BFP. It was the heaviest I gave ever been other than during my first pregnancy. I got off the pill and intended on losing some weight first but then git my BFP.

I've been so exhausted and worried about overdoing it that I've neglected exercise. Plus with the holidays.....ugh.

I've got my first appointment in a few days and I know I'm going to be super lectured about not gaining weight. I keep weighing myself though and it seems like there is no hope.

Hi mari3 and hh!

I feel like I've done better today, I am still some way from being 'good' but hopefully I'm on the right track. Unfortunately in put some chicken in the oven last night and then forgot about it so that was rather annoying, I'll have to rethink my lunch tomorrow now!

Yes ma'am! I lost 20 pounds in the month before I found out I was pregnant, so I had just bought a bunch of new jeans. But, since then, I've only gained 9 pounds back, so I'm still under by 11 and the baby is about 2 pounds of that, so he's growing just fine. I'm really hoping to keep the gain around 20 pounds.

Hope I can join here too? I'm 5 weeks pregnant and a UK size 18.

I've always been fluffy in pregnancy and have been good about not gaining too much, but this time I'm an awful lot heavier to begin with. I need to be accountable right from the beginning.

Nibble, that's fantastic that you're the same weight as before you got pregnant. Good on you; it's when I hit 2nd tri that I usually start to get hungry.

Me, I'm down 2.5lbs from last week. It's a surprise, to be honest, because although I'm not all that interested in food I haven't been missing any meals.

I found a report that said women with BMI of 30 or over can lose up to 11bs during pregnancy without doing any harm to their babies. I know I won't be able to do that (usually I gain about 20-25lbs overall), but it's good to know that I can let my body do what it needs to without worrying.
