When did you start gaining weight?


Apparently you're meant to gain 5 or so pounds in the first trimester and then a pound a week for the rest of the pregnancy but I seem to have done the opposite. When I was in my first 3 or 4 weeks my weight went crazy and I gained almost a stone, no idea why as I didn't even know I was pregnant at this point and wasn't over eating. Since then, however, I've gained nothing at all and I'm not sure why as my bump is pretty big. When did you all start gaining weight properly?

I dont think any woman should go by the "guidelines" as everyone is different. In all 3 of my pregnancies I have gained alot of weight, the most being from 20 weeks.
I always gain alot round my tummy in the first 3 months, then after 20 weeks it just spreads EVERYWHERE. So depressing.
Ive not weighed myself though, not going to either..x

I'm pretty sure I've put on quite a bit of weight already but I refuse to weight myself until just before the due date (for a giggle ;p) and then once baby is here and I feel I'm back to my original weight, I'll hop on the scales and hopefully only see a few extra pounds! I'm worried how I'd feel to suddenly see a huge increase in pounds, so it's best avoided x

hi yaaa i defo agree with you here and every single woman is so different...some may gain only 10lbs or so and others 4 stone plus its so strange! I havent over eaten at all and still do excersize and have put on over 2stone already its unbelievable and also very unlucky! Lol just as long as bambino is growing strong then weight gain isnt an issue i dont think xx

I've gained 14/15lbs, I went a week in the first tri where I didn't eat anything at all and not even keeping water down and I put on weight! (I had an awful stomach bug)

I've lost a stone and a half since being 6 weeks and I'm now 16 weeks! Mainly due to a complete loss of appetite because of feeling sick! I'm just waiting for third trimester now when everyone reckons I will completely balloon, nice of them...!! haha x x

I've gained 30 pounds so far and am 23 weeks! Can't really control it as alot of it is water retention...was a super slim girl to begin with so it's a little hard to swallow if you know what I mean...the stretch marks are driving me nuts!
