I've been 82.0kg for 5 days in a row so pretty happy with the stable weight. I'd still like to be 71kg at 40 weeks and hopefully in the 60's after baby arrives.

Minties, you have an eating plan? Loosing 10 kgs DURING pregnancy would be awesome, but that does sound like a lot, considering we have to put on 5-8....

Well I was weighed yesterday and at 38 weeks I'm only 5kg (11lb) heavier than when I was weighed at booking in. I'm really pleased with that since 8/9lb of that is baby alone.

I'm down another pound this week, which is good but not all that exceptional. I usually lose in 1st Tri but end up gaining about 20lbs over the entire pregnancy.

Im proper poorly

Been eating sweets, to try and help my sore throat and basically loads of bread and beige food. Which is never good. I have been putting on 1lb a week for 4/5 weeks but hopefully once I am feeling better I can get properly back on track

Im hoping to lose in pregnancy. I'm 6 stone above where I would like to be, I didn't gain any weight in my second pregnancy but gained it afterwards through comfort eating. Im hoping to lose 1-2 stone before my 12 week scan and booking and then maintain if I'm not allowed to lose.

WELL. Wanting to loose weight is one thing, but craaaviiiiings are something else!

Damn.

Just needed to have a kebab last night. Just. Had. TO. Have. It!



Am concentrating on the fact, that today I'll try to eat healthy, but I am so damn hungry all the time!

All I can think about is another kebab. And dumplings. And more food...

Agrrrhhhh...

Yesterday and today my hunger got less, so hopefully will be able to control my kebab cravings...

Do feel super super tired and am spending second day in bed...

Keep telling myself, that I really should go to the gym, but even getting out of bed is so damn hard at the moment.

Also, need to make sure I stock up healthy things to eat. Otherwise if there is nothing healthy (and I actually like healthy), I eat whatever is there. And a cheese sandwich isn' t exactly the right option.

I'm so happy to have found this thread! I've been told to only gain 10 lbs this pregnancy Last pregnancy, I managed to only gain 5 lbs in the first tri and after that averaged a pound a week the rest of the time, and I thought I was doing REALLY GOOD. Then we lost the baby After I recovered physically, I guess I ate a lot of my emotions and my blood sugar was out of whack, because even though I only gained the minimum recommended while I was pregnant, I ended up about 20 lbs over my pre-pregnancy weight, and I wasn't a petite flower to begin with. I had just started going to the gym to lose weight when we conceived again. Actually, of course, the first two weeks, I didn't know I was pregnant and I was getting REALLY FRUSTRATED that I wasn't losing any weight no matter what I did. Once I realized I was pregnant and got put on metformin to control blood sugar, it was easier and I've actually managed to shed a couple pounds and then hold even on my weight as I approach 10 weeks.

But only 10 lbs across the next seven months? I need all the support, advice, and encouragement that you ladies can muster! I'm so glad not to be alone in the effort. I look forward to helping support each of you in your goals as well!

Kayke, I agree, actually getting to the gym is the biggest challenge right now. I just want to sleep all the time. Cravings are not the least bit helpful. If only I could crave low carb things, but no such luck! I did tear up some baby carrots with tahini and tzatziki sauce recently, and felt pretty proud of myself for channeling things in a healthy direction.

Before I found out I was pregnant again, I was reading a book called "Always Hungry?" that suggests increasing protein and healthy fat while decreasing simple carbs will lead to longer periods of feeling satiated. It kind of makes sense. Helpful book if you can find a copy. Of course, being pregnant we have to have carbs, but I'm trying to make smart choices about what they are, and I'm not shying away from fats even though I can barely stand to eat protein at the moment.

It's nice to see so many ladies I recognize from other threads all here together. I'm sorry we're having to deal with this. But I bet we can be a lot of help to one another!

My BMI is high and my midwife would like me lose sme weight. No way would I want to put any on and I don't think it would help me or the baby if I did. I lost weight with my daughter and she was still big gpr dates (weight wise) and I was super unfit and felt like crap.

At my height 82kg must be a bmi of 36 or 37 I think.
