    I am not too stressed about gaining too much TBH. the MW that told me that I could only gain 5kg was a ***** and also told me I shouldn't take the lift when going to antenatal classes because I clearly need the exercise of using the stairs! I am not seeing her anymore thankfully because I got diagnosed with GD and see the ob now.

    For my first my OB wanted me to maintain my weight, as in as baby puts on weight I loose weight, I ended up putting on 12kg... He was fine with this, could see I was working hard. This pregnancy he's just been happy to compare me to last pregnancy as her knows my body can cope with that, I'm 36 weeks today & gave only gained 8kg so far, I've not had much of an appetite this time round... Remember your baby will get the nutrition from what you eat first so you are not harming your baby eating healthy & trying to maintain or loose weight, think of all those that have MS throughout their pregnancies... Just look after yourself, take your vitamins & you'll be fine, common sense goes a long way!

    How are you going OP? I just wanted to share a little more. I managed to only put on around 5kgs and had my DD. I'm now down almost 10kgs and I'm lighter than I was when I got pregnant. Hope you are travelling well and have lots of support xx
