    Hi Is anyone else worried about how much weight they have gained so far? I have put on 13 pounds... 21 weeks today... just wondered how is everyone else doing...
    I dont think I am over eating and i had a healthy BMI (21) before getting pregnant...:dohh:

    Hiya

    Funnily enough I weighed myself this morning i've put on 16 pounds and i'm nearly 20 weeks. I wasn't too worried about it as I thought it would of been more. I'm still trying to swim [when its not too cold] and walk as don't want to do nothing but as long as you and baby are healthy then try not to worry too much

    P.S I was in the healthy BMI range before getting pregnant [the top part of it] bet i'm not now!!!!!

    :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Amen to that!

    But really, I've put on about 20 lbs thus far, a LITTLE more than my doc would like, but she told me not to worry about it, and to just watch my sweet intake.

    I haven't been weighed by my midwife and don't have any scales to weigh myself either. I think at my next appointment I will ask them so I know what I've put on!

    I'm refusing to be weighed - my bum has got bigger and my breasts are just crazy big (36H at the last measuring session). I hope they stop growing soon. I'll turn into a big walking breast if they don't!

    I won't weigh myself either, I used to be obsessed with dieting & trying to keep my weight down, as soon as I found out I was pregnant that all went out the window!
    I'd guess I've put on about 10 pounds altogether, mostly because I've had to double my calories!

    I didn't gain much at all the first 14 or so weeks...but I think by now I have gained about 13-15 lbs. I was worried but I have decided not to let it bother me. I am just trying to eat healthy and let it go.

    I have put on 6lbs so far,well according to my last appt at 12 weeks.
    My maternity jeans are starting to fall down now though,almost fell down totally in Morrisons which would have been mega embarassing!

    My breasts seem to be growing by the hour though,I 1was 34B now at 34DD and thats starting to feel very snug.

    My bum is getting larger too,oh joy!

    I'm 19 weeks and haven't put on any yet. I had pretty bad nausea in the beginning though - until about 16 weeks. That coupled with the fact that, while I'm not fat, I wasn't the tiniest person to begin with probably explains my low weight gain so far. There's still plenty of time to put on the pounds though.
