I am joining!
I'm a big girl, and pregnant! My Dr has told me that there are no real dangers that I have in store for me, even though I'm bigger. No one has ever said anything to me about being big... or older(I'm 34... turning 35 mid september)
I don't have any fear... and I don't think anyone else should either!!!! We should all enjoy our pregnancies!!!!!

I'm plus size too and will also turn 35 befor bubba is born. I have recently lost two stone which I felt help me get pregnant. I must admit I am nervous about putting the weight back on as I know how tiring that extra weight makes you.

I am 6+3 and have put 2lb on but my boobs have already gotten bigger and I am already super blessed in that department just hoping they don't get too much bigger x

Me too! I have my first midwife appointment tomorrow and rather than being excited, I am worried about my weight being an issue. This is my first baby and I am having nightmares about the scan and the ultrasound person not being able to see through my ample tum!

Another Big mummy to be here

I am 24, this is my second (i have a 2 and a half year old), I am 5 ft 5 and currently weight 18 stone6. Started off my pregnanct at 18 stone 8 so doing well lol. my BMI is 44.

I didnt give my midwife a chance to mention my weight... i got in there first! She didnt really mention it much because i said i knew i had to watch what i eat and try not put any weight on but keep it steady.

I have a lot of fears about this pregnancy (more the birth) because me first was a complete mess up!

LadyMuch dont worry about the u/s... they may not be able to get as good a pic but trust me.. they will see baby they may just have to press down a bit harder.. they say baby perfect on my sister and she is also a big lady (uk size 28/30 and close to the 20 stone mark).

wishing all you girls so much luck through your pregnancy xxx

Thanks guys...I have been following slimming world for the last couple of years and lost about 4 stone but as soon as I got pregnant I couldn't face fresh fruit and salad (which I loved pre-pregnancy) and could only stomach the plainest food...think kiddie food of breaded chicken and peas. I feel like I am coming out of that now and am slowly bringing back lots of fresh food back into my diet.

I'm a similar weight to you, Sethsmummy but a wee bit taller. Like you say, desperately trying not to put on more than a few pounds but not going to be stressing over it too much. x

Love this thread! I am plus size too and pregnant with my second. I didn't worry about it so much the first time around but am this time. I'm a bit heavier, didn't get rid of all the baby weight and now will be adding more.
