I actually have never experience any of that. All my pregnancy I was a u.s sz 18-20. At present I'm a sz 20-22. I'm sure my BMI is 40, not much has changed since I was first pregnant at 19 yrs old. Doctors here have never mentioned my BMI, they have never even caution me about my weight in relation to pregnancy except in my first one where I actually was LOSING weight so rapidly the doc said if I don't try to eat he will admit me and start a drip. To me things like this (what u guys mentioned) regarding BMI consultant or dieticians while pregnant is an unneeded stress. I feel so fortunate that this has not been an issue for me. In my world yes I'm fat but its not a big deal or a big part of my life. To me this is normal. Just never felt bad about it.

Oh I don't feel bad about it.... I just want to keep an eye on things as chances of gestational diabetes and pre eclampsia are higher. I also want to make sure I am eating good quality calories and not empty calories

Just did the BMI calculator. . .mine is 32.4 "Moderately obese".

I was thin for about 6 years after I had my 3 girls, around a U.S. size 6. Took prednisone for a year and my activity levels went down to nearly nothing for a long time because of fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis. I'm a 14/16 now and up about 60 pounds from my normal. I'm 10 weeks pg today and am still a bit below what I was when I started for obvious pg reasons.

So I've been following this tread and decide to join in.
I'm 5'7" and google converts my weight to 14.3 stone. I've always been a little bigger and muscular build. Last year I lost 30pounds to get down to 180pounds. I'm super concerned about weight gain. My bmi is 31 which is apparently considered obese. I tend to disagree with how the bmi I set up since muscle weighs more than fat and it has always said I'm overweight. Even when I didn't look it at all.

That being said I'm not happy in my current body and wasn't before I found out I was pregnant. Now I scared I'm going to be huge and not lose the weight. Hubby lives me no matter my size but I need to love myself too.

I'm happy to read so many stories of people that love themselves and have similar concerns with the weight issue.

Thank you all for sharing

I am currently 14st 9 at 5ft 6. I have always done well on slimming world but seem to get a fair way then give up and put it all back on. When I found out I was pregnant I went and rejoined straight away. I have lost 4 and a half pounds in 5 weeks nothing major but im contending with a growing uterus and everything within it so anything off or maintained is good for me. Not on it to lose just as a plan to keep me eating healthy and out of thinking I am pregnant I can eat anything without consequences as that was the mistake I made last time x

Aww thanks. I have a 30 inch waist but a very large bum and hips. My boobs weigh nearly a stone between them as they are a 32JJ So I think maybe that's why I get away with my weight a bit more. Heavy boobies! Lol. And I wear dresses in a size 12-14, 16's don't fit around the waist. All very strange how I manage to get into those sizes! X

The conversion tells me I am 17.21 stone. I am 241 lbs and 5'4" and my BMI is 41 which is classified as morbidly obese. I don't pay attention to that though because as Medic said it does not take into account muscle weight, or heavy bone structure. When I was younger I was in weight lifting competition so I have a lot of muscle. In fact I was told by a personal trainer/ nutritionist that if I ever got to 160 pounds I would be admitted to the hospital for anorexia. So ladies you are beautiful the way you are as long as you are happy. If you are not happy then do what makes you happy. Don't try to fit into the medical professions cookie cutter of what "you should weigh'. We are all different and special just the way we are. Just work on being healthy for you and your little one. No matter what weight that is.

I hate being short because the weight has no where to go lol. I've always been on the bigger side. I have thick legs, big butt, and a lot of fat in my stomach. I look like I'm already about 5 months along but I'm only 2 months and I can't really suck it in anymore so if people question me how far I am, they are surprised lol
