    don't take this the wrong way, but you will get your figure back after baby. At the moment...the most important thing is for you to keep eating....yes healthy stuff by all means, but honestly don't worry about weight gain. A lot of it isn't just fat......the amount of extra blood and fluid you carry is incredible! and then of course later on there will be the weight of tha baby......so try not to worry and just enjoy it. xx

    I feel your pain, I dread not fittin in my size 8 jeans I've been getting a little bloated at night and even that is freaking me out. I'm scared that once I put the wt on it won't come off again and I really don't want to be overweight. I'm def going to try and control how much I eat as until the last trimester you don't even need any extra calories. However at the moment I just eat what my nausea can take!!! X

    i actually weighed less after birth last time....cos i was careful. i didnt starve myself by any means....but i found it hard to eat a lot anyway near the end...i weigh a stone less now than i did at booking in appt with last pregnancy.

    just hoping my bmi doesnt cause issues this time.

    good luck ladies xx

    I wouldn't worry about your weight too much, just worry about trying to keep ur bmi in the healthy range. I don't know how tall you are but I weigh 10'10 so you've got a long way to go before you'll be like me! :)

    Know how you feel Chrystal! I'm 6ft and have always struggled with my weight.

    I'm normally a 16/18 but can't even get into those anymore :( Am having to buy 20s and 22s because I've put so much weight on. Everyone keeps telling me to forget about it now because there's nothing I can do and I'm just one of those women who puts weight on very quickly, but then I see skinny pregnant women looking beautiful walking around in maxi dresses and I want to trip them up!

    Sorry - not in any way hating on skinny people haha. I would LOVE to be like that, but its not how the good Lord made me!!

    Anyway, even though everyone keeps telling me to forget it now I'm still dreading every week where I'm going to gain more weight. I haven't even dared weigh myself!!

    Just try to keep positive and remember you have a baby growing inside you and that is most important. That's all I do :) xx

    Do you know I've been so focused on getting preg and not having mc I don't think I've really thought about the stuff that goes along with it hence the freaking out. Oh we'll now for the reality check!!! X.

    I went to slimming earlier this year and as I was ttc I asked about what happens when I'm preg, they said the plan changes slightly and intends to keep you at your current weight in the first two trimesters and then gain in the third. Because everything is allowed on slimming world it is safe for baby and you! You can eat as much as you like and still lose weight so it's just about the combinations of how you eat :) xx
