    I was finally encouraged to weigh myself last week (scared of scales!). Never had problems with my weight or anything, I'm 5ft tall and normal framed, although whenever I weighed myself they would say I was 'just' overweight, despite everyone saying I honestly wasn't at all.

    So I'm creeping upto week 29 now, and I've put on 1 stone and 3lbs. Is this good or bad?
    I don't think I've put loads of weight on anywhere else except my tummy obviously.

    How much have you girlies put on (personal I know)!

    I was a bigger, taller girl to start so already quite beefy (!!) but am pleased as have put on 11lbs and am at week 24, but think this is pretty much all bump as everything else fits.

    I never weigh myself and I would advise anyone to avoid it like the plague during pregnancy - looking for trouble, LOL!

    I plucked up the courage to weigh myself yesterday. I weigh the same as what I did at my first MW appointment. I know I lost a bit of weight early on when I was being sick so quite happy with myself that I weigh the same as I did at the beginning! Really don't want to put on too much weight. My mum put on 6 stone when she was pregnant with me and I do not want to follow in her footsteps!!!!

    0lbs ..... my baby is growing at the perfect rate (I've had growth scans). Everything else is normal etc, boobs growing. No morning sickness per se. Just one of those things I guess. Think my tastes have changed since being pregnant.

    I've put on 10lbs, 2lbs of that since the weekend :shock: If I keep going at that rate I will be huge! Was only 8 st 1 to start with so could have done with gaining a bit of wait but now my eating is out of control! I'm constantly thinking about food!

    I've put on 10/11 lbs so far, was pretty small to start with only 7.5 st so guess I needed to gain a bit of weight, have really felt my appetite increase in last couple of weeks though! X
