    Where the weight goes

    The average weight gain during pregnancy is about 13kg (29lb). Here's where it goes:

    Your baby: 3.2kg (7lb)

    Uterus: 0.9kg (2lb)

    Placenta: 0.6kg (1lb 5oz)

    Amniotic fluid: 0.6-0.9kg (1lb 5oz-2lb)

    Breasts: 10.46kg (1lb)

    Extra blood: 1.4-1.8kg (3-4lb)

    Extra body fluid: 1.4-1.6kg (3-31/2lb)

    Fat: 4.6-5.5kg (10-12lb)

    was looking at baby development for my stage and came across this, i'm a bit of a geek so found it really cool :D x

    Thats me 36+wks now and I have gained exactly 30lbs so doing spot on......

    but my boobs havent grown - I am still a petite 34A!!

    And my bump is small too - cant really believe how I could possibly be carrying a baby in here that is supposed to be about 5 and a half pounds so far!!

    I have got huge fat swollen ankles so each of them probably weight 5lbs too!:flower:

    I think I've just gone from a 34A to a 36A... how depressing is THAT?! :wacko:

    I haven't weighed myself in about a month, because I had been weighing at the gym regularly but I haven't been since mid-November (decided I'm DONE with that!). I had gained about 8kg at my last gym visit, so around +18lbs at about 30 weeks... I expect to be up to maybe +25 lbs by now, because my bump has done some serious growing in the last several weeks. Have a MW visit on Monday so I'm hoping to ask to be weighed then.

    I have no idea where I'm even hiding LO at the moment, no actual bump at all! Was a size 12-14 prepregnancy and still am, total weight gain was 6lbs as of last week but have lost a pound this week! My body is crazy. Prepregnancy I only had to look at a baby to put on 50lbs... shouldnt complain though!

    LOL I am up to 27 lbs at 27+4 as of today. I went from a 36 DDD to a 36 G in bra size. Of course, the OH loves that! Men! I fully expect to have a few extra lbs after Baylie is born, but hopefully no more than 15 or 20.
