    Default Putting on too much weight??

    I just wanted to know how much weight everyone put on during their pregnancy. I don't care much about how I look - I don't think I look bad, the weight is evened out. I have attached a photo.

    I started overweight, I was 91 kg when I fell pregnant, I am 176cm tall or 5'9" for anyone still going by old metrics. Usually at my best (and this is in a size 14 I am about 80kg)

    Through my 1st tri, I gained only 4 kilos..which I thought was great
    I am week 25 now and I have gained 13 kilos overall.
    I now weigh 104 kilos!!!

    I have 3 months to go, I am so worried that I am going to end up 120kg!!
    I admit, I have been eating rich food in the 2nd tri, and chocolates - usually I don't eat chocolates.

    Mum had Gestational Diabetes with me and I also have PCOS which puts me at risk of GD, I'm having my test in 2 weeks time.

    Anyone else put on alot of weight? I am now only eating whole foods, I still eat rice - I am filipino there is no changing that.. but I never ever eat white bread or pasta.1391778_233393630151487_818128623_n.jpg

    You look healthy, I wouldn't worry too much if you're eating well and active.

    For me, my first pregnancy I gained 13kgs and came home from hospital a whopping 3kgs heavier than conception. (ermmm but then went on to gain back like 10kgs in the following year oops)

    Second pregnancy I gained 20+ kgs. Though I can't really remember where I got to but the last few weeks I was gaining like a kg a week, it was ridiculous, yet I was eating wellish and walking 4-6 klms a week.

    You look fine. A bit puffy but with all the extra blood your body produces and the baby you are making, it is to be expected. Don't stress about it

    I would never guess you weigh over 100kg, I agree that you look healthy!

    I was 53kg (5"3) when I fell pregnant with ds, lost 5kg in the first trimester... weighed 76kg the day before I had him! Thankfully most of it dropped off naturally.

    You look great and your weight gain is not excessive at all.
    With DS1 I started 68kg, was 74kg just before birth and 64kg 2 weeks after birth.
    But with DS2 I was 64kg at start, 84kg just before birth and 74kg 2 weeks after.
    So I put on 20kg with DS2, but after I had him it come off over time.

    Don't worry about it, like I said you look great and healthy. Plus remember by the end there is about 10kg of baby and baby extras.

    I'm 175cm, 72-73kg at conception and am now 86kg (up 13kg) at 34wks. I put on approx. 3kg in first trimester then gained a kilo a week for much of the second tri and started freaking out that I would keep gaining a kg/week for the rest of the pregnancy but as soon as I hit third tri it has slowed down. I gained 9kg second tri and so far only 2kg in third. Don't worry you won't necessarily continue to gain at the same rate the whole way through. When I look back at my figures with DD1 my weight gain had the same pattern. Try not to get too caught up in the numbers- I think you look great!!!
