    might make u feel abit better.

    • At birth, your baby will weigh approximately 3,300g (7.3lb).
    • During pregnancy, the muscle layer of your womb (uterus) grows dramatically and weighs an extra 900g (2lb).
    • The placenta (afterbirth), which keeps your baby nourished, weighs 600g (1.3lb).
    • Your breasts weigh an extra 400g (0.9lb).
    • Your blood volume increases and weighs an extra 1,200g (2.6lb)
    • You have extra fluid in your body, and amniotic fluid around the baby, weighing 2,600g (5.7lb).
    • Plus, you will lay down some fat during your pregnancy to provide you with extra energy for breastfeeding. This comes to about 2,500g (5.5lb).

    Noooooooooooooo! I refuse to weigh myself-cos I know i will be depressed!
    I'm sure you'll lose it after no problem-try not to beat yourself up about it-you're growing a little miracle in there! xx:hugs:

    I stopped weighing myself when I hit 13 and a half stone. Given that I'm usually 10 and a half/11, I was gutted.

    That was about 10 weeks ago and I haven't looked back since so put the scales away!! :D

    I don't really care how much I've gained. I figured I would gain 50 lbs and that is around where I'm at now. I didn't exactly deny myself the foods I wanted. I'll get it off eventually.

    I got weighed begining of this week and have put 1 stone 6 pounds which looks scary on the scales but i don't thinks its too much just need to keep a steady pace now as i have a feeling i'm going to pile it on when i finish work.

    Thanks everyone. It's so good to know I am not the only one!

    I just remembered the midwife saying at my booking in appointment "mind how much weight you put on - you don't want to over-do it" - I think she meant it lighthearted... but since weighing myself her words have haunted me :dohh:

    Ahh well... I am sure all the running around after LO when he is here will kill some calories. :blush:
