did you put on in pregnancy?
I know it varies so much but just curious really! I have put on about 2st 2lbs so far due to my constant grazing but speaking to friends over the weekend one of them only put on 1 1/2 stone.

My son - I put on 4 stone and 9lbs. I was a very unhappy whale. A lot of it was water at the end, he was 17 days late. But I grazed permanently, I was on iron injections that made me hungry, I was signed off work with bordeline pre-eclampsia and other stuff so went nowhere and did nothing. It was a miserable time! Really worried about the same thing happening again.
3 stone with number 1 and 2.5 stone with number 2. I have friends that have put on lots more and others that gained just a few lbs.

I put on almost 2st and M was born at 40+11. I have a feeling it'll be more this time around!

I put on about 1 1/2 stone.

With Isla I put on 1 1/2 stone altogether. Now at 29 weeks I've put on 13lbs

Just goes to show how varied everyone is! I'm not worrying about it until after baby is here. Enjoying making the most of pregnancy, food and all!! ;)

So far im just over 4lb lighter. at almost 21 weeks i don't think that's bad going. im sure it will start piling on soon

2 stone by the end and half of that was in the last part. I had lost it all 3 weeks post birth.

Just over 4stone with no2 and I'm now 1 day over due and put on 2st. I'm eating so much more healthily this time and much more active. I lost the last lot really quickly so hooing to this time too.

About 8lbs. Largely due to ill health though, so not necessarily recommended! Baby was 6.5lbs.

I have no idea! I dont weigh myself so depends if midwife does.
I know when I went for my 12 week scan I had lost a few pounds since my 8 weeks appointment. I put that don to not having the alcohol calories!
Would be interested to know how much ive put on though. WIll make sure I get weighed at next weeks appointment!

Just over a stone with both x
I've only put on 5lb so far at 20 weeks. I'm guessing all the weight gain will be in the second half though so I'm sure that will change! I know I lost some weight initially with sickness and trying to make a huge effort to eat better.

3 stone here. Still 4lb to go at 6 months!
20/08/2013 at 16:53
Little Monkey- Only 4lbs to go! You're doing really well. I suspect that my weight gain will be around the 3stone mark and will be over the moon if I only have 4lbs to go at 6 months.

3 1/2 stone here, big momma! Like you I wasn't bothered though and loved my big bump (part baby part cake!) and I lost 2 1/2 stone of it by 7 weeks even though I have been cake crazy! Think BF and having to jig my son to sleep has worked wonders - plus giving birth ha ha, going to have to make the effort on the last stone though I think!

I lost weight. Feck knows how, as I had numerous take aways a week, and J was 9lb 9oz.
I weighed myself the day I had J (after giving birth), and I was a stone and a half lighter than my booking in weight. (few weeks after his birth, I went down 2 dress sizes)

I put on 4 st first time, 2.5st the second time so aiming for 2 st this time. Though I have put 9lbs on already at 16 weeks.
I know it's all carbs though - I can't seem to get enough bread and pasta which I would normally limit.
I still do
Mon - Metafit
Wed - boxing and a pregnancy workout
Thurs - kettlebells and I'm starting aqua natal this week
Fri - double Metafit
Sun - yoga
So god knows what size I'd be without all that!
