Hi

Just wondering if anybody had any good web links for finding out what rate I should be gaining weight throughout the pregnancy.

I am now 24+1 weeks and have put on 13lb. I think I am probably okay but it would be good just to confirm that!

Thanks,
Annette x

Try not to worry though I know it's easier said than done. Throughout pregnancy your babies will take what they need and if there's any lack of nutrients it'll be you that suffers not them!

I've lost a stone so far, I just don't want any food and when I do eat a small amount fills me up. The doctor says that it's fine, as I was on the large side to start off with and she seems happy enough whenever she measures my belly....

I wanted cravings as well, but haven't had any so far!

I would TRY  not to worry while u are pg, enjoy what your body is telling u to eat  :), I gained really slowly in 1st and 2nd tri's and loads in 3rd tri.  With my dd I gained 3 1/2 stone and nearly 4stone with ds.  I am normally a 10-12 and went back to normal within 4 months of having dd and curently have 2 stone to shed so hoping can get rid of it the same (here's hoping)

Good luck  x

Hi - I've gained 1 stone so far - I'm 20wks +3days, and to be honest, I'm starting to worry a little.  I've literally put on a half stone in the last 4 weeks - the first half stone I put on over the previous 16 weeks, which seemed more normal?
I'm being pretty good with my diet (so I thought), and not eating lots of rubbish, but no matter how good I am, each week, for the last month, I've gained almost 2 pounds.  It wouldn't concern me as much if I knew this was a 'growth spurt', but the thought that this might be something that continues throughout the next 20 weeks (another 40lbs?!), is a little daunting! 

Any thoughts or similar experiences?

Yup...........stop weighing yourself. ;D ;D

Seriously, if you are concerned then just make sure you have a sensible diet and that any snacks are healthy snacks rather than junk, but other than that there's not a great deal you can do and you certainly don't want to be dieting at this time.

Hi All, just to clarify......my query regarding 'any thoughts or similar experiences', stems from the fact that this is my first baby, so its all new to me and the only thing I was wondering, was had anyone else experienced something similar with their weight gain or had heard of weight gain 'spurts' such as I seem to be experiencing? 


Thanks
