6.5kg's at 28 + 4. Considering I was up 8kg's at 25 weeks, I'm pretty happy with the gain so far. I went on a really strict clean eating plan at 25 weeks and it seems to have worked as I've shed some weight
I was given a friendly reminder to watch my weight gain by my ob this morning. I will be sitting down to do a meal plan tonight.
I haven't been weighed at my Ob yet. At my first appt he asked me how much I weighed and I told him. I wasn't overweight to start and at all my appts to date I don't think it looks like I have put on much so perhaps that's why it hasn't been a topic of conversation.
I have an appt with my mid-wife (who works with the Ob) tomorrow though - I wonder if she will weigh me then? Or say anything about it.
I look alot bigger now - really only in my tummy though.
From what I have read and heard - some people get weighed regularly at their appts and some don't at all.
Basically it consists of a gluten free diet (I'm gluten intolerant but was still eating gluten and it was making me feel too bloated) along with no refined sugars, no preservatives and I have cut out all pasta and potato. I have two slices of gluten free bread a week as a treat as I LOOOOOVE bread!
I was overweight before falling pregnant at 78kgs. So not huge but still overweight. I also had pre eclampsia with DD and putting on too much weight can contribute to the chances of it happening again. The problem is more that I have put on 2kgs in the last four weeks as opposed to the total amount I have gained. with DD I put on 25kg during my pregnancy and do not want that to happen again. Although a lot of it was excess fluid as I was 15kg lighter in the week after having her.
