I know I shouldn't feel low, but I do. I had been carefully monitoring my weight gain (on a weekly basis so as not to get obsessive). I had gained 9lbs at 19 weeks so was confident come 20 weeks I would have gained the recommended 10lb or just slightly over. Got the shock of my life this morning weighing in at 14lbs! How did I gain 5lbs in ONE week? I barely changed my diet at all. I let myself have the occasional treat (a hot chocolate/occasional biccie) and so far had been getting away with it.

Only difference is my stools are much firmer than usual, I'm a bit constipated. But I have been eating loads of veg and fruit. Going to get back on the juicing and see if that helps keep things moving..

Has anyone else had sudden weight gain at certain stages in their pregnancy? I just felt so in control and now I am terrified that gaining 5lbs a week will be the norm! I'm going to cut down on the sugary treats (that I *thought* I was already having in moderation) and replace them with nuts/dried fruits/fresh fruits etc to see if that makes a difference. It would be better for baby anyhow, just not so much fun for Mummy!

I know how you feel. After last night's discussion about weight I got back on the scales this morning to find that I've now put on a grand total of 19lbs in 20 weeks. Am absolutely horrified. I have just had a weekend away where I ate far too much, but even so… I will have to work extra hard at Aquanatal tonight and try to go for a run this week too.

Hey ladies!

I'm due July 7th with boy. Please add me to the list on the front.

Still haven't felt any movement i can pin point as baby. Damn anterior placenta. Should be any day now though! Hip pains at night come and go. Had a good 4-5 days last week with no pains. Went to a baby shower this weekend and was talking to another pregnant woman and i mentioned my hip pains had gotten much better. I jinx myself. Back with vengeance last night! Toss and turn and toss and turn and fidget and fidget and up to pee a million times. ugh.

Still feeling pretty good overall. At my 18 week appt i had put on 13lbs and my midwife mentioned to keep an eye on it. Which freaked me out. So up until my next appt i'm just planning to maintain. Which i have been doing. I have been using my fitness pal to track the calories (don't worry its set at 2100!) and i eat just about ALL of them everyday! It makes me more accountable for what i put in my mouth. My work place is filled with sweets and cakes and cookies and crap all day everyday. Keeps me from eating it. Also enjoy my weekends too. My snacks include mostly ONLY fruits. Its my biggest craving! Been making fruit salads weekly (sometimes twice weekly cause i eat everything) with fruits from Costco! Yes its winter here and yes it costs a fortune, but at least its not chips or pizza! lol
I am working on enjoying this pregnancy since its my first. I don't want to look back and think how i didn't enjoy it because i was so obsessed with my weight. My belly is growing, and i can see the bump moving north as my uterus expands to my bellybutton area. Cant wait to feel the movement.

Happy Tuesday ladies!

Cally - Nah I think it happens in spurts and it's more than likely water retention. I put on 14 lbs in the first tri and since then i've stayed the same and then started losing a bit despite eating the same quantities. I was a bit worried by the loss of weight but i've had much looser stools recently and prior to this was constantly constipated (tmi) It makes a big difference X

Updated the front page, ladies! It's looking pretty up there, lmao.

I'm worried I'm not gaining enough this pregnancy. I've only put on 3lbs in 18 weeks. I had only put on 1.5lbs between 12 weeks and 16 weeks. I think I need to pick up my eating habits, which I have in the last week or so. Now that I have some energy back and can stay up late, and the nausea seems to be gone, I'm eating three meals, plus snacks every hour, and then having a 4th meal at about 9:30pm, lol.

Hips aren't horrible. If I sit in a certain position for too long and try and get up, then they're sore, but otherwise not too bad. Sorry you gotta deal with the hip pain, lmb.

So I'm guilty. I kinda dug into my kids' Valentines candy (now I owe them big time) and found that Kes seems to LOVE Wonka Fun Dips. He wants more and I ate them all! lol

At 19 weeks id put on 7/8lb this time around..going to avoid the scales though as I remember being horrified last time haha!

My back bones have started grinding when I roll over in bed now, resulting in me wiggling in pain until they 'pop' back into place..erghh!! Guessing this is because everything loosens up to make room for the Little One?

Hope everyone is feeling well and enjoying the little movements!

I think as long as we are eating reasonably healthy most of the time the weight gain will be whatever baby needs. I do get a bit hung up on it but trying to go with the flow. Plenty of time to lose it afterwards!
I have my 20 week scan this afternoon at 4. Exciting!
