Weight gain by 13 weeks??


Hi ladies, I've not been on for a little while.. but am pleased to say that had my 12 weeks scan last week and all was well.. AMAAAAZING seeing our little baby kicking around.

Anyway, I'm now 13 weeks 1 day and feeling incredibly aware that I may have put on too much weight for this stage?! I'm 6ft tall and usually very slim (but with hips and curve!!). I had bad morning sickness from weeks 5 - 9 but since then have had a HUGE appetite and becuase I've been so tired I've been eating like a horse and convenience food too, craving all the wrong food!

Now I've noticed quite a bit of gain around my belly, which could quite possibly be my uterus hehe!!! But also I'm fully aware that if you gorge on bad food you will also put weight on! I've also dropped my exercise because I've been tired. I'm going to start eating healthily from today as obviously want to put the best food in for my baby

I just wondered a) how much weight have people put on by the time they reached 13 weeks?? and b) have they started showing yet?

I know that all women are different, and read on the internet about what you should gain in the first trimester, but would love a quick sweep to see what all of you ladies have experienced? I have put on 7lbs and have a little bump (I think!!). It could be that I'm totally normal... but just was curious!

Thanks...

xxxxxx

As far as I know that is completely normal - don't worry about it. I've put more than that on and I'm behind you. As soon as I have had my first scan (providing it's all okay) I am going to start exercising again. I know that stopping my exercise has contributed to my weight gain...so am keen to get back to doing something and stem the weight gain in the next trimester.

i haven't purposely weighed myself, but know I've put on quite a bit. I dread to know how much. But like you I've been so tired and then craving all the wrong foods and dropped the exercise. Gotta start that up again. xx

3lb for me so far and I will be 13w tomorrow.

7lb seems fine to me devon lady - I am sure my gain would have been closer to that if I had not been so unwell in the last month.

I've put on 9lbs and I'm only 5'5 so I wouldn't worry about it!
I just can't stop eating!

Are you considered in the underweight category? If so, my doctor said we should be gaining about 35-40 lbs....if that's your case, then I would think that you're just fine! Everyone is different, I wouldn't worry too much about it! Good luck with everything!

I never really had MS, and found when I got nauseous eating made me feel better I also stopped going to the gym because I was so tired, and so gained quite a lot. Hoping to start swimming or some other low impact exercise to minimise the weight gain now I'm in second tri xx
