    Hi. My BMI is 33 but I wear size 12 - 14 so although I feel fine, I'm slightly worried the doctor is going to give me a hard time at my appointment tomorrow. I had an eating disorder as a teenager but all oka now, but went to the doctors a while ago for something completely unrelated and she told me "you need to lose 10kg. No children. No excuse." I left, cried and avoid doctors at all costs now. I'm 10 weeks pregnant and have had an ultrasound etc, so doing wha5 I have to, but why do doctors have to be so nasty / full on??

    I'm sorry you feel like that. Some doctors are a bit tough love. I know my ob is like that and she weighs me at every appt and harangues me if I gain more than I should. I'm 30wks now and have gained 6 kg so far. According to her I should have only gained 5-7kg in total so she is not impressed.

    But I admire and like her as a doctor and she is very good at her job. Just zero bedside manner.

    What a horrid way to tell you that - bit rough!
    Not all drs are like that - I'm pregnant with #2 (25wks) & had a bmi of 41 at the start of both pregnancies - not had anyone bring up my weight except in reference to it automatically classing me as high risk for GD. And that was delivered in a very nice manner. I haven't actually been asked my weight aside from the initial appointment.

    Good luck for your app tomorrow & your pregnancy

    Yeah I don't mind people being to the point if I trust them but unfortunately I've never found a doctor I like.

    I'm glad you've had good experiences. Fingers crossed I'm just being dramatic. I think I just have to remember they're just doing their job and will move on to the next person (was told the other day my doctor sees 50 patients a day!!)
    Thanks!

    Please shop around till you find a health care provider that suits you. It's important you have someone you like and trust. Unfortunately as I work in healthcare I know more dodgy docs than nice ones.

    Hi Ladies, I am 24w4d pregnant and my BMI is a massive 54! :-(
    I am really worried that the pressure of my stomach fat will squash my baby! I know that the uterus is a muscle and its strong, but will the weight push down on my uterus and squash bubs?! :-(
