I have just found out i am 8 weeks pregnant with our much wanted 2nd baby! Had early dating scan yesterday and so far so good.
Went for a check up this morning at GP and he weighed me and did a BMI which he sad was 16 and that classed me as quite underweight.
He said i should try and start gaining some weight as he looked back at my history and saw i weighed 51kgs when i found out i was 6 weeks pregnant with DD. He said he would like to see me at a healthier weight like that. He also said if i gain 25 kgs during this pregnancy it would be a GOOD thing.
I dont even know what i weighed at the end of my first pregnancy.
I dont have any metabolic or eating disorders. My MCHN sent me for blood tests about 6mths ago to rule anything out for my weightloss.
Im a clean bill of health. It's not like i deliberatley lost the weight. I dont even weigh myself. I dont really care about that stuff.
Now i have to go back fortnightly for weigh-in's and routine blood pressure/pee tests. I feel like im under some sort of pressure to gain weight!
I know my body and im pretty sure it knows what it's doing. Sooner or later i will pile on some extra kgs for bub's (if my body think's it needs to!)
Trying not to stress over it. Every pregnancy is different, right?
