    It depends on how much you weighed before, but 1st 1lb sounds quite little if you ask me! I've gained 20lbs so far myself, and am right on track, even a bit on the low side for my height and weight.

    The Wii fit don't know your pregnant so take no notice of that. I don't think that sounds like too much. Alot of it will go once baby, fluid and placentas out. Then there's your uterus aswell which adds a couple of pounds that accounts for a good percentage of that weight gain

    That's very little hon and probably means all your weight has gone on your LO so I would actually be very happy with that. I've put on literally about double of that :/

    Doesn't sound like a lot to me. I've gained 13kg and my baby is only 75% baked!

    I'm gonna regret it afterwards I think!

    i dont think thats alot.

    Ive put on 1 stone exactly, i think the average is 2-2.5 stone, think there is a calculator on babycentre.com that lets you put in your details and it tells you how much you should roughly put on.

    I have no idea what I weigh now. I'm still goin to slimming world and I know how much I put on each week but no idea what the total is! I'm not bothered about it. I lost 2 and a half stone before I got pg so I will lose it again once Pip is here. I've waited for so long to be pg I'm makin the most of it!

    I'm surprised actually as I thought it would be more, as I don't exactly eat really healthy, although I know I should. :)
    Going to diet when lo arrives though.
    Looked on babycentre.co.uk it states I should put on about 1st1lb-1st11lb think this is because I was overweight to start with.
    What a handy little website...
    You:
    Uterus1.3 lbs
    Breasts0.6 lb
    Blood1.7 lbs
    Water2.3 lbs
    Fat4.6 lbs
    Subtotal10.5 lbs
    Your baby:
    Fetus7.5 lbs
    Placenta0.9 lb
    Amniotic Fluid1.1 lbs
    Subtotal9.5 lbs
    Total1 st 6.0 lbs

    even the skinniest person would be "overweight" in the third trimester if you look at a normal weight graph!
    I've read that if you are overweigh before getting pregnant you should gain about 1stone, ideal/healthy weight about 2 stone and underweight about 3 stone. At 5'7 the ideal weight is 121-160lbs. (So if you were just a bit over 160 I would think 1.5stone would be fine for instance etc.
    Hope that was helpful!

    I was buying bigger sizes as started puttin on a bit before I realised actually I was pg, so got shifty of all my smaller clothes, so I doubt I'll have much to wear. I'm determined to loose weight by Xmas just hoping to do my own kinda weight loss at home x

    I have gained 30lbs and still have three weeks. We get weighed at every appointment here and the doctor says I am right on track so not worried. Average weight gain should be between 25 and 35lbs, more if you are smaller and less if you are bigger.

    I don't mind if I put on more than I'm meant too, it will all be coming off :)
    I was only just slightly overweight when I last weighed myself so guess I'm not doing too bad, plus I know baby weighed 5lb7oz last monday so will be more now, xx
