Stop weighing yourself end of. I personally don't think weighing yourself is healthy when done too much even when not pregnant but there's a reason MWs don't do it regularly anymore. Just try to eat healthily and let your body do what it's got to do to produce this baby, you can lose the weight afterwards.

I'd love to be able to stay off the scalesmbut know I won't. However I am making sure to eat a varied diet with good protein and plenty of fruit and veg. My doc is expecting a weight gain of about 9kg so that's what I'd be happy with; gaining almost 3 of the 9kg in a month this early was a bit of a shock.

Your dr shouldn't even expect a weight gain, no woman is the same, it's a really unnecessary stress. You are going to put weight on, if you're being healthy you will lose it just fine.

Yes that's how I'm looking at it, as long as I'm healthy afterwards I know it will come off. I used to be so active before, Zumba running gym etc and now I can't do any of it except swim really so I know that's getting me down. Once I start again I will feel better! Wish I could avoid the scales but I et weighed every mw and hospital visit so although I don't use them at home I still find out around once a month! I'm ok with it though, I know I'm eating healthy and it's all necessary weight!

You can ask them not to weigh you, it isn't necessary you can refuse anything a MW does lol.

My nurse tells me I can look away from the scale if I want to. I honestly don't care as I trust my body to do what it needs to to grow the miracle in my belly! Our bodies are amazing so try to revel in it while you can! You can deal with the aftermath when the time comes by continuing your healthy lifestyle.

To be honest as long as you are not eating for two then you should be ok. Unfortunately I ate constantly with my last (baby #4) and gained to much. This time I only gained albs for the 1st trimester which I think is a way more healthy weight gain for me. We really shouldn't worry too much on how much we weigh, but it is hard, and the only reason Dr need to know is so that they can help you if they think you are gaining too fast (many women do) or don't gain enough which can put stress on your baby (that is if you are under weight, if you are considered obese then not so much). The norm weight gain is 25-35 lbs at term or 40 weeks. I hope this helps!!

Up until this point (I'll be 15 wks tomorrow) I hadn't gained a pound. Went on a camping trip for a week and I gained 3 lbs, kinda freaks me out. I'm about 25 lbs overweight so i don't really want to gain too much if possible, I was trying to lose weight before I got pregnant, can't do that now, but I can try to not gain a ton.
