    Hey ladies, i thieved this from second try, but think its fab.

    https://www.thebabycorner.com/tools/p...calculator.php


    Here are my results

    Based on your pre-pregnancy weight of 124.3 lbs., we calculated your BMI to be 24, which is considered average according to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies. This week you should weigh between:

    145.3 and 147.3 lbs

    You are 5.3 pounds under the lower end of of your target weight range. During your first trimester, you should gain between 2 and 4 lbs.. Thereafter, you should be gaining 1 lbs. per week until the end of your pregnancy.

    At full term (40 weeks pregnant) you should weigh between:

    149.3 and 159.3 lbs
    Total Target Weight Gain: 25 to 35 lbs.

    Thanks, this is great! I was paranoid I'd put on too much - I'm only 5' 1" and have put on 18 pounds but according to this that's spot on. It's just a shame I was overweight to start with!!

    aparently ive put on 25lbs so far which is 2lbs more than i should have throughout the whole pregnancy

    my weight thing has really effected me and i didnt think it would as i was big to start off with. My main consern is that im too heavy for our home scales, and for the doctors scales, so how am i exactly supposed to know what im losing after ive had the baby :(

    Pre-pregnancy weight = 150 lbs
    Weight this morning = 160 lbs

    You are 13 pounds under the lower end of of your target weight range. During your first trimester, you should gain between 1 and 2 lbs.. Thereafter, you should be gaining 0.5 lbs. per week until the end of your pregnancy.

    161 and 170 lbs

    Sightly over. Boo. I am not going to worry too much though. I had already thought I should swap some of the chocolate I've been eating for more fruit and I guess that just confirms it.

    Erm yuck frankly. It said I was overweight to begin with, and nearly a stone overweight now. Here is a picture of me, do I look a stone overweight? No? Right then.

    OK- so it told me to gain 11-20lbs since I'm "obese" (courtesy of rapid weight gain from birth control and quitting birth control- gained weight while exercising and eating VERY healthy BAH!) but my midwife said 15-25 was perfect. Needless to say my weight gain is about 13lbs so far. I'm not posting my results because the word OBESE is making me feel bad. (not like I can do anything about it now! Just have to wait until after baby is born because I hate being fat as it is and hopefully without birth control I can get down to my pre birth control weight of 125-130)

    Well I've put on around 21lbs & it says I should have put on another 8lbs! I am healthy, baby growing well, so why do I need more weight? Confusing! Plus I feel huge, don't know where they expect me to put another 8lbs ha ha! Xx

    I'm 4lbs over - but still 7lbs less than the maximum weight gain for full term, which still leaves me 1lb a week!! :)

    They give you a very small window don't they, it says I should weigh between 162 and 164lbs now, I fluctuate more than that in the space of one day!

    I know I ve put on probably the the most upper weight gain on an average scale, but I don't care!! I too look like Aunty E and Runnergl - absolutely fine!!!!

    I hate those weight calculators... they make me feel guilty for eating (no I don't eat alot and it is far from unhealthy).... that's surely not good!
