    Hi all! I'm new to this thread, just started feeling reallllly down about my weight this week. I trained like crazy for 6 months prior to February for my wedding and was around 80kg (but a solid 80) for that. Immediately after though, no matter what I did I couldn't stop gaining weight. I shot up to 90kg by July, saw the Dr and found out I had a thyroid problem. As soon as I started thyroxine for it I lost a kg but then fell pregnant immediately after and haven't lost any since then. Got on the scales yesterday and I'm up to 92.
    I am freaking out because I have NEVER been above 86 before and that was always my breaking point where I got straight into full diet/gym mode to lose it all. Now I don't know what to do coz I feel as though I can't do the extreme dieting or exercise I used to do, and I struggle to lose weight just eating healthily and walking. I'm so scared that I'll hit the 100kg mark and am freaking out about how huge I must look now. I don't feel like I am that overweight, my stomach is still pretty flat (apart from bloating on and off), but from what I weigh, I know I must look a lot worse than I feel I do.
    Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can avoid getting too big? Is it safe to go back to the gym and atleast try and tone up with weights? I want to lose weight but I know it's not a healthy thing to try and do whilst being pregnant. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    I so get where your coming from, I had lost 88kgs in the last 18 mths and I regained 6 kgs already. I know why I been eating constantly due bad ms and been so tired I hardly moved for the 7 weeks. I know that in the next trimester I will lose, I always do. I will be sticking a high protien and lots salads and veg and low carbs. I am seeing a dietitan due to having wls 14mths ago.

    If you are going public request to see their dietitan, The ob love and are always happy to do it. It a free service instead of $90 for 30 mins I have to pay for a private one.

    As for exercise firstly ask your dr first but as a general rule, don't go so hard that increase your body temp. (red face and sweety) It is dangerous for bub. In saying that now is the best time to start. Strart slowly and build up to longer times.


    I am Happy to chat anytime.

    I also found out when I was 8 weeks pregnant that I had a thyroid problem and took thyroxine throughout my entire pregnancy. Have they re-tested your thyroid function? I probably had mine tested 3-4 times throughout my pregnancy to make sure I was on the right dosage of thyroxine, and then they tested again at 6weeks post-partum. Sometimes they need to up the dosage during pregnancy. During my pregnancy I walked 5 times a week up until around 34 weeks (as I just couldn't do it anymore as I was massive by then), and I also saw a dietician who gave me an eating plan. I stayed the same weight through-out my entire pregnancy and at 10 weeks postparum I am 10kg down on my pre-pregnancy weight. It is possible to loose weight during pregnancy, but you need to talk to your OB/Doctor etc, so they can make sure the bub is growing properly etc as they can't use weight gain to monitor this. You will find with the extra your body is working - pumping all that extra blood, and growing a bubba, with some gentle exercise and good eating you can maintain or even loose weight. Hope you have a good pregnancy.

    Thanks teganP and loving6. I've got an appointment with my OB on Monday so I'll have a chat with her about this. I haven't had my thyroid tested since July so I'll bring that up too and see what they want to do. If I could get by without gaining anything I'd be super happy. Maybe rather than wanting to lose weight I'll try and make maintaining this weight more of a goal. Hopefully now that the morning sickness has eased up a bit and I don't need to eat 10 times a day it will help.

    So far I think I've gained 6kg... Which is weird coz I'm doing the same as I was with DS, eating more regularly (as opposed to once a day if I'm lucky) and walking... Everything is same time of year as it was with DS (due 3 days before his birthday)...

    I been taking the higher dose since 7 weeks because I have had a gastric sleeve. I never did with my other 5 even though my bmi was 59.7. Is there a reason they want you to take it?
    Oh I was never classed as high risk until I had my sleeve. Even though I was almost 180 kgs. I was never told I have a c/s other than a emergancy one when ds was face presentation and dd when fetal distress. I never ended up with one though.

So alot of good this information does me now!

    I am so worried.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    Phew, thanks for listening to me
    I was told at 10 weeks that it was a fairly new recommendation that if you were overweight that you should be taking the higher dosage. So I only got it in very late as well.

    Try not to stress over it.

    With folate I was required to take the larger dose for my last two pregnancies. I have been Type II diabetic, overweight and ended up on insulin for both pregnancies and am Type II now. The Diabetes Specialist recommended that I take extra folate for something to do with the diabetes. I just can't for the life of me remember what reason she said now, but with any luck I'll be there in the next few weeks and she'll probably say it again.

    Maybe they're assuming because you're over the BMI that you're at a higher risk for gestational diabetes and the folate may have something to do with that?

    P.S. I had a quick look and the research seems to suggest that people with diabetes are at a higher risk of developing Neural Tube Defects in babies in the first trimester and they have recommended a higer dosage of folate to help prevent that. So if your Dr is 'assuming' that you are pre-diabetic or even full blown diabetic then it may be precautionary on their part, but a simple blood test would rule all of that out and they should really do that before opening their mouths. I have no idea LOL just what I've experienced. Hope that helps a little bit?

    I'm nervous as anything!!!! Today I have my first Midwife/Antenatal Appointment and am dreading the outcome. I am quiet tall 5'11 but also weigh 132kgs. This puts my BMI at 40+.

    Does anyone know if they classify you in the High risk category straight away if you are that overweight?

    I've always struggled with my weight and lost 8kgs before falling pregnant but since falling pregnant i've stopped going to the gym and really can't seem to eat the right things as i'm worried about what I can and can't eat.

    DH is very supportive but he says don't worry it will all be fine. BUT i'm really worried about it all.

    Everything goes okay today.
