I have put on 3 stone but I know I will shift it afterwards, just keep that in mind. It is possible to get rid of the weight post baby, it isn't a permanent feature.

With regards to permanent feature thats is what I say to people when they comment how big I am "Well at least I'll lose some when I give birth" so naughty of me x

i didnt think midwifes weighed us at appointments?


i jumped on the scales at my last appointment but it was my choice, i wanted to see how much i had gained (10kgs) i told the midwife and she wasnt intrested, she didnt note it down or anything,

i asked if thats okay and she said, yes perfectly fine

that was the end of the conversation





im not too worried about my weight gain so far, i just want to keep weight gain to the minimum now.

You've just reminded me I bought Get Fit with Mel B for kinect for afterwards although according to Mel B she couldnt lose the weight without the help of Jenny Craigs Meals on the advert she's currently appearing in.

Maybe I shouldnt bother & just ask her for a refund, surely she's just saying her game is crap
pmsl... yes! i would send an email... see were it gets you lol

My midwife just did my 34 week check this week at my house and i also dont have scales s o she couldnt weigh me.

she said that she has to note down if my BMI is above 40 so i think its that they have to check it rather than wanting to have a go.

can you work out your BMI in advance so that you'd know if you're above or below the limit and be prepared?

They don't weigh you every visit? Lucky you. I get weighed every time. At least they always tell me they don't have to TELL me what I weigh. I can look away if I want to.

I don't own a pair of scales forthis reason, I am no way overweight or anything but after battling eating disorder for so long & finally getting myself on track with a healthy diet regime I don't want to know what my weight is, I got all upset last week at my drs appt as he weighed me & it turned out I had put on 1.5kgs in 5 days, but 3.8kgs for 26w2D pregnant, & I was devo, so I now asked him if he wantsto weigh me I'm standing on the scales backwards as I don't want to know what I've put on!

I don't get why they are so fussed up bout our weight, as long as baby is growing we are eating all is good (unless your a medical high risk- eg carrying a baby with medical issues etc at risk of getting IUGR) but otherwise leave us alone, we are pregnant were supposed to gain weight, who cares, we'll lose it later!

Ive put on 2 stone (28lb) at 31 weeks. I wanted to weigh this at term! 8 weeks to go until babe is here and Im not going to be able stop further weight gain so Im not going to worry too much. I will eat as healthy as possible so that weight is gained by baby, not me.

It sucks we feel under pressure when we are experiencing one of the best times of our lives!

With both pregnancies I've only been weighed at my booking appointment and never again so it can't be that essential!! With DD I gained about 6 stone (weight after she was delivered) and lost it all in 6 months, this time I've gained almost 3 stone so expect to shift that in time for the summer all being well.

As has already been said baby weight isn't permanent and will go away. I really don't get this need to make pregnant women who are already feeling vulnerable about their size feel even more crappy by weighing them and having a go!

You don't have to let your midwife weigh you if you don't want them to.

My midwife has NEVER weighed me and never will. I'm not weighing myself at the moment and don't want to know.

I thought that mws weighing you at each appt was a thing of the past! My weight was taken at the beginning of the pregnancy and that has been it. I think a lot of ladies feel self concious enough about gaining the weight without a big deal being made of it by the mw!

I think you should ask her if there is a medical reason she is weighing you and if not then tell her you'd rather not as it's stressing you out.
