Hi I was just wondering how much weight other people put on during pregnancy?
I originally lost about 4 kg in the first 12 weeks due to innapetence and morning sickness but since then gained 6kg and im now at 27weeks. Does that mean a total gain of 6kg or have I technically only gained 2kg ?
I have felt amazing during the whole pregnancy but in the last week seem to suddenly look really fat all over, gone really spotty, have swelling of my ankles, achey back and just generally feel a bit poo...is it normal for it to just suddenly catch up with you like that?

4 and a half stone with my first and 3 and a half with my second - but worth noting i didn't stop eating and never suffered any nausea or sickness.
Sometimes i found, pregnancy does just catch up with you - when i went into my second trimester, i had really bad acne (and have never suffered with spots before) dandruff and had the opposite of pregnancy glow - i'd never looked worse!
Not sure about your weight gain - but i wouldn't worry too much - maybe mention at your next midwife appoitnment.
