I was just wondering,how much weight did you put on during your pregnancies? Do you buy maternity clothes in a bigger size? I'm a true size 10 and wondered whether I should buy size 12 clothes? I'm only 10w plus 4 today so I've got a few weeks to go yet

Too much lol. I went up from 79kg to about 90kg but went straight back down to 84kg after the birth. Just waiting for my c-sec wound to heal so I can start exercising and walking about again to lose the baby weight x

Haleigh - thanks chick. I will start looking after my 12 week scan
LH86 - that is actually not too bad - only 11kg and that included the baby! My friend put on 25kg and went from 49kg (yes, she is very very skinny) to 74kg and lost all the wight within 3 months. On the other hand, my colleague is pregnant (mardy cow ha ha) and she is only 6 months and already put on 2 stones which is roughly 13 kg. And then she said the other day : I hope it's all baby! Ha ha, WTF? a 13kg baby at 6 months pregnant? I was thinking, you stupid cow, the baby probably weight 2 pounds if that ha ha.

Thanks for your replies.
Tulip - I am trying to eat healthy stuff, I always have been a fan of healthy eating and I am used to eating a lot of fruit and veg and lean chicken meat (as healthy as chicken can be). I hope I can keep it up
Gingerpoodle - thanks honey. I will start looking at maternity stuff after my 12 weeks scan - less than 2 weeks to go now - eeeek. I said t DH today that we could go to Cheshire Oaks to have a look at some maternity clothes and baby stuff because most of the branded baby stuff is cheap there - Pumpkin Patch are very cheap and also Next The scan is on 27th Feb, mid morning and it is an understatement to say that I am terrified. I am 10w+5 today and feeling mega tired, which is good according to the midwife I am still getting sickness which I am extremely happy about - felt pretty rough all night last nigh and this morning. The longer it stays the better, I am embracing it - as sad as it sounds! I have gone off food as nothing tasted great at the moment and I do not particularly fancy stuff, but I am eating as the baby needs all the vitamins and nutrients. Have you found out what you are having?

I am an 8-10 and i found by around week 9/10 I feeling uncomfy in my trousers/jeans so I bought some maternity jeans from New Look and also some maternity clothes from a selling site on facebook (mostly dorothy perkins bits) and they will do me well until I've had the baby. So far I've put on 6lbs and I'm 15+1. I won't deny, I have indulged in some bits I wouldnt usually have before I got pregnant as I was following Weightwatchers but I'm hoping to get back into shape pretty quickly afterwards.

I vowed I wouldn't put so much weight on this time, I went from 11 to 14 plus stone with Caitlin n it took me 10 months to get it off but I did manage to get down to 9 stone. I was a lot heavier this time tho was already 12 n a half stone when I fell pg and think I put on about 2-2 n a half stone. got about 5kg to go to get back to pre preg weight not bad considering lexies only 18 days old n I had a section so haven't been very mobile. Don't think it'll take me long to lose it tho, first day with the girls on my own as oh back at work n haven't even had time to scratch my arse let alone eat yet lol, really looking forward to when I can start exercising again wana get a good few stone off before summer x

Well I'm not exactly a little lady, I am a size 18-20, I weighed 104 kilos at 9wks+3 then went down to 102 kilos at 16wks+3 and I'm now 23wks+1 and I'm back to 104 kilos.
I'm hoping that I won't put too much weight on but feel that I may be tempting fate.

Best of luck for Thursday judy , sure everything will be fine , can't wait to see your update , it's natural to be worried , think we will worry til we have our little ones in our arms n then we worry if they're ok - think it's a mumas' lot to worry
, We are the same gp ,keep looking at pink / blue clothes n wish we knew which to get , got another scan at 30 weeks but still wont find out , bought yellow moses basket sheets , got boy n girl clothes but much more girls stuff , still waiting to get stuff out the loft to see what we actually have got , saw midwife today - hb was lovely - 160 bpm , thought was a bit fast but baba was moving n mw was quite happy with it , bp was good too 125/80, very good for me again , must be the aspirin doing it's job , wonder what weight the baby will be , have all been little tiddlers so far - 6lb 4 1/4 being the biggest , with the placenta hopefully functioning better will probably end up with a 9 pounder !! x x

I picked up a couple of maternity tops from New Look and when I tried them on one was really tight around my arms. I was like WTF? ha ha and my arms are not big at all I bought a size 10 as that is my true size, as much as I would like to fit in a size 8 again I am trying to eat healthy now so hope I do not put too much on, I don't care if I do thou as long as the baby is happy and healthy
I need to wear suits for work and getting away with jumper dresses there days Need to buy some button extenders
