    Hi troops,

    Well, I think I did the mistake yesterday of weighing myself. It was the first time since my 12 week scan. Apologies I'm going to be talking in kilos here (Australian). At my 12 week scan I was 74kg's and she said I was on the brink of being overweight - my normal weight is around 64kg's.

    Weighed myself yesterday and I'd hit 80.6kg's!! That's 6 kg's in 6 weeks - flippin' heck!

    OH reckons they'll give me a blasting at the next appointment next week - 20 weeks.

    BUT - it's winter, I'll eat what I want and bugger exercise in this weather! And I curse any person that tries to get you to diet whilst pregnant. AND - so fricking what! Who care's that you put on weight - oh I can't wait to hear from the 'Pregnancy Police' to hear what they have to comment re weight-gain.

    Does anyone else get fed up with these so-called know-it-alls? Oh yeah, they either have never been pregnant or they are men.

    Comments please ladies.

    Sass

    Sasswa i agree thy have never been pregnant or are men.

    I have put on 3 and a half stones in my pregnancy (dont know how much that is in KG)

    I think maybe the reason im so overdue is hat im feeding baby too well so she does not want to come out. x

    :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Here Here girls.. sod the pregnancy police.. we are the ones who have to endure these long months and as you say S the winter time is cruel on the figure anyway.. I dread to think how much I have gained as I was so fit and healthy when I got my BFP but being told I cannot excercise has really buggered up my weight maintenance!!

    Lets be honest.. if we are happy and healthy and our little Bods and Beans are fine.. whats the problem.. I understand that too much gain can be a problem but when spring and summer come closer we will all eat rabbit food and those extra kg's will drop off [hopefully!!!]

    right.. off for my second breakfast !! :wink: :wink: :wink:

    if you feel healthy and your giving your litle bean enough vits and minerals then what does it matter how many punds you put on... easier said than done! I'm constantly checking my weight and i'm only in my 16th week...

    Last week i'd put on 5lb - this week i've added anothr 1lb... if i add a 1b a week i'll be going up 2st 2lb by 40 weeks....

    Jo Jo any movement yet?

    Don't worry about your weight at all :lol:
    You're pregnant for goodness sake :)
    Enjoy it. :lol:
    In some regions of the UK they don't weigh you at all through pregnancy. I was weighed at 10weeks and then again at 36weeks. And haven't been weighed since.
