I am 19w3d today, and I have already gain 5kg. In the last two weeks I put on 0.3kg everyday on average! However my bump is still not significant by now, just my thighs are getting larger... mad.gif

Just wanna ask, how much weight have you gain by now? and how much weight gain per week is normal?

yep ive gained 4.5kg and mainly on my butt and thighs bumps getting bigger but. just google avergae weight gain during pregnancy you should roughly gain from 11-18kg depending on your weight and BMI before falling pregnant.

The avg is 2kg up until 13wks then I think about 300g wk.

All depends on your BMi b4 preg. If your small then your allowed the max gain where if your on the other end they only like 0-5kg.

I'm up about 7kg, eek. I'm almost 24 weeks. Its really slowed though, most was gained early on when I was eating stupid amounts of crap. I'm trying to exercise each day again now which will hopefully help.

I've dropped from 94k to 81k at 23weeks, but hardly surprising as I am still throwing up a bit. Good news is I'm starting to be interested in food again.

I was reading that bubs bones are doing lot of forming at the moment, so keep up the calcium intake ladies  wink.gif

Last time I weighed myself I had gained 6kg, I think it will be a little more now.  It's a lot to do with my diet changing though - I was vego, but had to start eating meats again (I had a lot of nausea and couldn't stand certain foods, so otherwise wouldn't have had enough iron/protein etc).  It meant we started eating more takeaway foods and I suddenly had more fats in my diet from the meats.  

I don't feel that I look much bigger (other than the big bump!) though so I'm not worrying about it until a doctor tells me otherwise.

I think it makes more sense to focus on your diet and ensure you are having a variety of nutritious foods and also plenty of exercise, rather than worrying too much about the number itself.

If you are hungry, eat something, just make sure its got a decent amount of nutritional value. There is no point being overly restrictive if your body is telling you it needs fuel.

5kg in 19 weeks is not a lot. Nothing to worry about. Some people gain much more than that.
I am 27 weeks and have gained 9kg - nearly 10kg, but most of that was during the 5th month and seems to have slowed right down.
I was worried about it and thinking 'oh no I have really got to cut down' but since it has slowed down, I think I can see that my body needed to put on that weight and will do what it needs to do, and slow down when it needs to, so I'm not worrying too much. In the first trimester I had a big appetite, but now I'm just in the 3rd trimester and don't get that hungry, its also hard to eat a large amount because it gets so uncomfortable, so I'm definitely not overeating.
Just listen to your body and you will be fine. Recommended weight gain amounts are 11.5 - 16kg if you started with a healthy BMI so aim for that, or a little less if you were overweight and a little more if you started underweight.

Only 1.5kg, i was 86kg pre pregnancy and now im 87.5kg at 23 weeks. I think i did lose about 2-3kg in the first trimester though.

Haven't weighed myself since my confirmation of BFP at the GP months ago! We have scales in a cupboard but they're high up and I've been meaning to ask DH to get them down for me. I think for this pregnancy I'm supposed to put on anywhere up to 25 kgs. Weight gain for twin pg is especially indicative of a good birth weight so it is important to keep track of, more for the putting on of enough weight than anything else! I've been trying hard to get enough calcium and good fats, and protein too, although my protein could be better being vego.

For my first pregnancy I put on about 23kgs - I was a whale! But it was mainly fluid as I shrunk afterwards.

Oh, also I heard if you measure your upper arm circumference that is a good indication of overall body fat, so if you're putting on weight, but the circumference stays the same then that's pregnancy weight. Not sure how reliable this is?

I am 23 weeks and have gained about 2 kilos. I was quite chunky to begin with though. I feel slimmer in the face etc but am getting quite a large bump. this is #2 for me. I think with DS I had gained at least 6 kilos at this point, but I also lived on salt and vinegar chips.

I had trouble putting the weight on. I didn't eat through this pregnancy though as the babies took all the room!! I think at 19 weeks, I had put on 2 kilos, then I lost it from the vomiting and all the nausea I experienced!

Previous pregnancy (1 baby) I stacked on the kilos in the first 3 months. Ya never know how things will affect you and genetics and hormones play a big part!

I got weighed at 12 weeks and last week, I've put on 2kgs. I don't weigh myself at home and don't want to stress over it hence me not weighing at home. I may have put on weight in first twelve weeks - not sure. I'm back exercising now so hope that will help with weight gain.

Posted 05 November 2012 - 05:16 PM

Still none sad.gif

I lost about 5 - 6kg when I had the bad nausea back in the first trimester, and have only gained 1 - 2kg of that back. So as of now, at 19 weeks, I'm still about 4kg lighter than I was before I was pregnant.

Having said that though, I had some weight to 'spare' to begin with. At 164cms and 76kg (before pregnancy), I was considered overwight according to the BMI.

At 21 weeks I've gained about 5.5kg. I weigh myself every couple of weeks when I go to my mums house. I was underweight according to my BMI pre-pregnancy and didn't have severe MS, so gained a little in the first trimester. I'm pretty happy with how I'm tracking.

#16 Zahhy

Posted 07 November 2012 - 10:41 AM

I'm at -4kg to when I fell pregnant, but was down to -8kg.
I was quite overweight to start with though.

#17 *Katey*

Posted 07 November 2012 - 10:51 AM

Tonberry - I'm the same, I'm still 4kg lighter now, than what I was before I was pregnant. I lost about 6kg in the first tri and have gained about 2kg back.

I don't think anyone is concerned though, as I was defined as 'overweight' according to the BMI to begin with.

#18 *Kell*

Posted 07 November 2012 - 11:42 AM

I don't believe in the BMI measurements. I was 'Ideal' according to BMI, however I felt fat. I didn't have an eating disorder, I was just flabby and couldnt see how that could be seen as 'Ideal'. I wasn't a toned 65kg person who exercised, I was a flabby 65kg, which I wasn't happy with.
I'm 21wks and have put on 4 kgs, with no exercise (I've been recommended not too much activity because of cord and placenta). But then again, I eat very small meals, rather than large ones.

Yeah, I was 76kg, but not a healthy 76. I hold my weight around my midsection, so even though I appear to have quite average arms/legs/butt/hips ect, I have what I like to call my 'barrel belly'. All the way around, not just on the front. I even held extra weight/fat on the middle part of my back. My mid section is quite out of proportion with the rest of my body.

So I was definitely able to lose some weight without any concern.

I'm 19 weeks and I've been seeing my OB for over a year now and she's not once weighed me. She must be able to tell that my weight (or lack of weight gain, rather) is of no concern at the moment.

I started off at 63kg ( I'm 5.7 so tall ) and am now hovering between 68-69 ( im almost 24 weeks ) I feel huge but considering ( much too my excitement) I can still fit in my denim shorts, I can't have gained to much fat! Atleast that's what I'm telling myself lol

I am 5'0" and was about 46-47kg pre pregnancy and just today at 24+2 weigh 53.7kgs.

My thighs have increased in wobble but everywhere else seems relatively similar.

I just found this thread... I keep forgetting that there are ones other than the general chat thread!  Not sure if anyone is still reading it though!

My weight gain has been a bit slow, I started off with a healthy BMI, put on 2 kg by week 9, then no weight gain until week 19.  I was quite worried about this and was relieved to find I have since put on 1 more kg. So 3kg so far by week 20.  The baby has been growing okay though, my belly has definitely been getting bigger, fundal height is always spot on, and morph scan yesterday showed average size - 57th centile.  So not sure, maybe I will just gain more weight later?  My blood results have all been fine so no major health problems.  I guess it could just be that I don't eat meat, and DH has diabetes so we don't eat many carbs, and some of my major cravings have been salads!

#23 Eirlys

I have no idea what weight I have gained. I know I have gained weight but my Dr has only weighed me once since becoming pregnant. To be honest I am not sure I want to know.

#24 Studybug

Hi ladies

I lost something like 6/7kgs earlier on in the first trimester.  I'm now 24+1 wks and have since put on about 3kgs in the last few weeks. I started at 72 kgs, went down to 65kgs and am now 68kgs.  
I hope to gain weight gradually, and Dr told me at preg start that my weight gain goals should be 7.5-11kgs.  It'll be ok if I don't quite gain that much provided it's because I'm eating healthy food and exercising but I really should not put on anymore than that.  FAt chance I won't put on at least 7.5kgs so I guess I need to start swimming/aquanatal classes soon wink.gif

So, anyone know of aquanatal classes on Brisbane southside?

#25 naturalgoodness

Posted 11 November 2012 - 10:27 AM

Lost 2kg early on, and since have gained none. I started overweight and our plan is to gain nothing (drop weight and baby grow to cancel each other out). So far so good! But still another 20 weeks to go!
