Weight Gain


I'm currently 36w+5 with my 3rd baby. Mw weighed me yesterday (1st time in any of my pregnancies) and I have only put on 3 kg (approx 6.6lb) now I've been having growth scans due to measuring a few weeks behind and my fundal height not growing at a previous appt, and yesterday at my growth scan they estimated baby to be around 2.4kg (just over 5lb) Now I know this is just an estimate, but surely baby can't weigh that much if I've only put on that much!!

I've heard of women gaining like 10lbs total and having 8lb babies! I'm sure it's possible. Generally speaking, baby will get what they need no matter what.

I think it's more of a case of transfer, you lose and baby gains so it evens out!

Once you have the baby its possible you could weigh less then before you got pregnant. Your baby is going to take whatever they need so its likely youve actually been losing weight while baby and placenta and all that stuff has been gaining. I always gain around 30lbs with my pregnancies and at least half of that goes away by just having the baby. The other half goes away with breast feeding, took a year with my first but only took like 6 weeks with my 2nd. Hoping it falls off quick with my 3rd. As long as youre eating healthy and they monitor babies growth, which sounds like they are, and dont see any issues i wouldnt worry about it. I actually know someones else whos pregnancies have all been really great weight loss tools

I lost weight with Sophie and she was 3.6kg/8lbs at 39+2. I gained only a little with Emma which was all gone plus more a couple of days later and she was 3.4kg/7lbs 8oz at 38+6. Then my first I ate burger king almost every day, I ate and ate and ballooned up but he was my smallest, 3.3kg/7lbs 4oz at 41 weeks.
