Hi! When i became pregnant I was 105kg, 165cm tall. My GP had only one choice in referring me to a hospital (no private) as I was automatically deemed high risk, so I had to go to King Edward in Perth.
I have no GD or BP issues, and am now classed as a lowest of the high risk! Lol.
I am now 124kg (eep) which is a bit higher than i would like to be, but not as bad as I thought I might be! I know exactly why I gained so much too. I didn't eat more, in fact my appetite has been about 30% less throughout.
What we did was go out for many meals, in the mindset that we should enjoy our last months as a couple and go out as much as possible. Well we did, and that meant pub meal after restaurant meal after takeaway....huge portions, usually with chips, and maybe even a dessert afterwards! Shocking.
Beware this trap!
But I have to say it was all fun, and DP and I had some great discussions about our upcoming changes, more than we would have had at home watching tv.
