    Pre-pregnancy weight. Unless you do something ridiculous like gain 40kg, they'll be happy to use to your pre-preg weight and BMI.

    The only time they might consider weight at birth is if their is a specific drug calculation that depends on your current weight.

    I know someone who is about 30 weeks and has been told she can only gain another 2kg or will have to drive to the city to have her baby... It's to do with in case she needs any interventional treatments during labour, apparently they've set a limit at the small regional hospital she hopes to birth at. Think it depends on the hospital, the midwife and the reasons why.

    I was hoping it was pre-pregnancy weight…. le sigh. I'm going to be pushing my local hospitals bmi restrictions unless I lose some more weight this first tri. I'm hoping private are a little bit more lenient.

    Can't hurt to ask how far off the max limit are you, kg wise?

    I'm only a few kgs off the max… so will depend if my OB allows me to lose a little bit of weight in first tri, so I can then put it on in second and third to still remain below it

    (I don't want to put bub at risk though and if I have to go 100km away… then I guess I have to )
    Public hospital is bmi 35… I;m currently at 33…. I'm hoping private might be different)

    My local hospital is a high risk one so I wasn't aware of the limitations but they didn't keep recalculating my BMI throughout pregnancy. They seemed to go off my check in weight which was 36.

    My ob suggested I could lose weight over my entire pregnancy but I ended up going from 95kg to 109kg. He would have preferred I didn't gain at all. However I gave birth 11 days ago and am already back to 95kg.

    I'm just going to have to play it by ear, doc told me not to worry, said once she refers me to a specialist they will assess what to do and what will be best

    Well that's better than a flat no at least! Is it a long wait for the specialist?
