    Ok so i decided that i will start my January 'Diet' on new years day. (not actually going to do a diet, more along the lines of eating more healthily, more veg, smaller portions, no chocolate etc)
    Have budgeted myself a 1-2lb gain per week, which i think is about right?

    Anyway, with pregnancy #1 i gained a wopping 3st 12lbs (basically 4st!) Well by gained i mean from my 10 week check up, to my due date so that includes baby!

    And weighed myself this morning. and so far i've gained 1st 8lbs (again from 10 week appointment to today (34 weeks)) so hopefully i won't gain another 32lbs by due date!!

    I think i'm quite happy tbh, because if i gain the 2lb a week i've budgeted that still leaves me a few lb less than i weighed at full term with J. (i started of 1 1/2 stone heavier this time :whistle:

    Have any of you other ladies weighed yourself yet? is my 1st 8lbs gain normal? xx

    Nooooo way am I getting on any scales until weight loss is seriously underway! Otherwise it'll be clinical depression for me.

    ^it's much better if you don't understand, I wish I didn't!

    When I was a few weeks pregnant I was 50 kg - at my first scan they forced me onto the scales and I was already 54. No bloody way was I going to be persuaded to do that sort of thing again!

    57kg = 8st 13lbs
    62kg = 9st 10lbs
    64.8kg = 10st 2lbs

    so thats 1st 3lbs gain. thats really good hun!!

    I think mine is only so little because i started off at 13st 3lbs anyway, with a BMI of 34! :|

    Not really forced me, was just joking - I was just mentally resisting it, but didn't actually say I didn't want to do it :p

    I've got terrible water retention. My weight shot up as soon as it happened. No way in earth am I stepping on a scales until bubs is on the outside and my swelling has gone down down. Aside from my belly the rest of me is pretty much the same and I'm in the same clothes. I'm hoping it's not too horrific when I get there. Also relying o the BF diet loooool.

    I have put on over 3 stone I think - I too weigh in kgs - I was 65kg when I found out I was pregnant (@4 weeks) and am now nearly 85kg - so practically 44lbs which is 3 stone 8lbs - I don't feel like I am massively different though a lot of it seems to be on the bump

    You were only small to start off with though! :D I'm sure you'll loose atleast half of that after baby is born.

    With J i gained nearly 4stone to full term, and weighed day after i came back from hospital 1 1/2 stone down xx

    Last time I weighed myself, I'd put on just under 2 and a half stone!! Dread to think now. Think I'll weigh myself the day I go into labour or am 40 weeks. I've never been weighed by mw (thank god lol) xx
