    Hiya

    Well I keep putting off weighing myself every morning, then this morning I couldn't resist, I got on the scales and to my shock I have gained 11 pounds already and i'm only 16 weeks tomorrow.

    I have been eating a little more but nothing too much - am worrying now.

    Think I need to go get me a swimming costume :)

    If it bothers you, fix it soon, because you will get into a bad habit. That said, everyone puts on weight when they're pregnant. At the end 28lb on average of your weight gain is baby & all the bits that come with it.

    Although statistics vary and every woman is different, I have read that about 10-12lbs per trimester is normal and healthy.

    I weigh myself once a week, I have done for years, and am just keeping track of it with curiosity really. I don't want to gain too much as I was already quite overweight pre-pregnancy, but at the same time I'm not stressing about it.

    Don't worry hun, just see how it goes and if your MW doesn't express any worry then don't you stress about it.

    I have gained 24 pounds so far and I'm 7 months along 28 weeks 1 day, I thought I was doing pretty good since my sister gained 80 with my niece and my mom gained 80 with me but leave it to the good ole doc to make me feel like poo at my last appt and said I have gained too much. I just cried all the way home.

    heh. My mum put on 80lb, she would have sat on the dr's head. It was her favourite threat
    I will crush you!!!!!


    your weight gain sounds fine to me.

    My midwife is not even weighing me. I have my own scales but they seem very unreliable. Either that or I am very fat. Though I weighed myself at the doctors and I was a lot less than what my scales said. I'm trying not to emulate my mother but Im so hungry all the time :(

    I am having the scale issue problem here at work too, It'll say like 3 pounds and then when I go to the dr his will say 6. I think a lot of it's water and I have decided I am not weighing at work anymore!!!

    My midwife hasn't weighed me either, she didn't even ask my weight at my last appointment, and I had weighed myself a day early for her too!!

    I put on 12 pounds FAST, within the first trimester. Now I'm not putting much, if anything, on each week. I'm now 15 pounds up at 25+ weeks.

    The Dr. hasn't commented, the baby is fine so I'm not worried. I eat when I'm hungry and try and pick healthy choices. My DH actually thinks I'm losing weight in other places (and I had *some* to lose too).

    Everyone gains weight differently. As long as everything else is going well (bp, swelling, etc) then I wouldn't worry about it.

    As long as you're eating healthy and listening to your body as to when you're hungry and full, don't sweat it. Just don't give yourself free access to all the goodies on account of your pregnancy!
