Hi Mums to be,
I am currently 19 weeks and was wondering how much weight some of you have gained so far????
Posted 06 December 2012 - 10:35 AM
None so far. Lost a kilo or two during the ms weeks but now just at my normal weight again.
Posted 06 December 2012 - 10:40 AM
Nothing so far, but I am carrying an extra 8 kilos from my last pregnancy so I expect that explains it.

From my heaviest recorded before realising I was pregnannt.... to lowest since.... I went down 5.5kg.... currently back up 1kg.
I gained about 25kg with DS1 and about the same again in the 20 months since so I'm pretty pleased to be sitting still right now.

I was 71.5kg when I went for my first obstetrics appointment at 8 weeks. My weight fluctuates each day on account of the bladder problems my retroverted uterus is causing but we've managed to deduce I've put on about 3-3.5kg since then. I'm just past 16 weeks.
Whilst I still have quite bad morning sickness, I can manage to eat and keep my food down if I do so later in the day, and I'm eating what I feel like right now (as I can't keep anything down that I don't want to eat). That's meant a lot of eggs and stomach sticking stuff, like toast, things I probably wouldn't normally eat a lot of, but I'm reasonably happy with my weight gain given I've not been eating as balanced a diet as I would have liked.
With my higher BMI (26.ish) I was told to try and limit my weight gain to 10kg over the whole pregnancy, but my OB has also said I should eat what I can now, with the sickness, just to get some nutrients, and if I stack on a bit more than I should from the eggs & carbs, we'll work in the later months to limit the gain and balance it out when I'm not so ill.

I will be 17 weeks tomorrow and am still about 1 kg lower than I was when I fell pregnant, due to 15 weeks of m/s and food aversions, and vomiting...I haven't vomited in nearly two weeks thankfully, so I expect to put on a bit more in coming weeks. Plus I was at my heaviest when I fell pregnant this time too.

I lost 6kg through hyperemesis but have gained about 1kg back so now sitting at -5. Now I'm starting to eat and drink again on my own I suspect I will make up for lost ground in no time.

I'm 17.5 weeks and have gained 4kg. Unlike PPs, I gained a couple of kilos in the first trimester, because eating all the time kept the nausea away! So far the weight gain has been exactly the same as last pregnancy (and from the same starting weight) and I gained a total of 14kg then.

I'm with Jane.
Snacked my way through 1st trimester and currently up about 3.5-4 kg and almost 18 weeksI started at 71kg and am on the taller end of average at 5'8" - currently I'm almost a size 14 previously a 12

Just weighed myself this morning. Have added about 3.5kgs at 17 weeks....am sure cheese and bacon breadrolls at 9am don't help! But hey, rather that than feeling like death.
Happy with weight gain so far as I was in a pretty lush paddock for a few weeks there due to nausea!

No idea so far, i had not put on anything and was still 60kgs at 13-14weeks but now at almost 16weeks there is definitely a decent bump.
I dont actually have scales at home .
I would say i would be around 63ish by now.
Posted 07 December 2012 - 08:40 AM
I've put on 2.2kg which is pretty gooed with the amount of crap I had been eating in the first tri! (the only things I wouldn't vomit up were potato cakes and hashbrowns ) I actually think I have lost fat and put on baby if that makes sense. In the last 2 weeks my bumb has grown to noticable but I have only put on 200g and my pants in the legs are bigger. Hopefully I stay under the magic number so I can birth at the hospital I want to!
Posted 07 December 2012 - 08:49 AM
3.5kg so far. Started at 64, so I am ok with that, especially seeing as I look like I'm about 25 weeks!
Posted 07 December 2012 - 09:03 AM
I've put on 1.4kgs, which is pretty good as I am about 6-8kgs overweight anyway. But my size has grown considerably!
Posted 07 December 2012 - 12:15 PM
I'm still about 4kg down, due to HG. I've lost more than that, but then put on baby, iykwim!
Posted 07 December 2012 - 03:11 PM
I think about 4kg for me. I'm not really sure what I weighed to start with but I average about the 54kg mark and the Dr had me at 58 today. I'm not quite 16 weeks yet though so I'm hoping things level out a bit, I don't want to put on too much that I have to lose later on. I also found eating constantly helped with the ms so now that I'm over that I can hopefully cut down some of the intake that was keeping me from being sick!

I've lost 5kg - largely due to being diagnosed with GD at 10 weeks and forced to adopt a low sugar, low salt, low fat, low carb diet.
However, I did put on 6kg over 6 months while doing ivf.
So, at 18 weeks an overall net gain of 1kg.

So far I've gained 3.5kg. I think most is just the amount of chocolate I've been scoffing. Hoping to keep the gains to a minimum.
Posted 07 December 2012 - 04:48 PM
17 weeks and I'm up 3.5 kg.
Seems like a pretty common number
Posted 07 December 2012 - 06:00 PM
I think they say at 18 weeks anything up to about 6kg is OK for people of average body weight. So we're all doing OK Last time I'd already gained probably 12kg by now, lol
Posted 08 December 2012 - 07:11 AM
i was ~51.5kg prior to pregnancy with a BMI of 18.8
through first trimester i was EXTREMELY hungry and nauseous at the same time.
Anyway, i've gained ALOT and am now 56kg (BMI 20.4)
I'm fairly horrified by this. most weight has gone to boobs (up 2 cup sizes to DD) but still fitting into pre-pregnancy skinny jeans (just).
midwife not concerned. says it is catch up weight and it will slow down. i hope so!!
Posted 08 December 2012 - 07:46 AM
evablue, how many weeks are you? I haven't been able to get into my jeans since about 7 weeks!!! just a teeny bit jealous!!
Posted 08 December 2012 - 07:53 AM
im only 16 weeks! and i'm not showing either. i just looks sort of bigger and people are pretty shocked when i tell them i'm actually pregnant
Posted 08 December 2012 - 10:47 AM
evablubell - I am a bit similiar to you, I am still wearing my jeans but my jeans are starting to get a wee bit tight because of my belly starting to pop out so I am guessing by end of December I might have to start wearing a belly belt with my jeans.
I look a bit fat if anything with a bit of a belly but friends and family who do know that I am pregnant will gasp and say WOW, you've got a bit of a baby bump there. Others, I assume just think I am fat by the way they treat me lol. I was in the shops the other day and I mentioned to the girl that I was pregnant and she looked a bit shocked, did the eyeball up and down onto my belly and back lol, I had a good giggle about that one afterwards.
Pre-pregnancy I weighed 58kgs. During the first trimester, I vomited a lot and barely kept anything down and lost a LOT of weight. I was weighing 53kgs just a few weeks ago. Now I am slowly putting it back on - I am back up at 57kgs but that is with clothes on so I think I am still hovering around the 56-57 mark. I am keeping most food down so hopefully, I see my weight go up a bit more. The midwife didn't seem too concerned at this point but I'd like to see myself put a bit more on but we will see how we go.
Posted 08 December 2012 - 02:40 PM
i started at 88kg and now at just over 90kg. I am 5'11 so a bmi of 28 to start with.
when i got on the scales at 12 weeks for blood tests it came up as 92.5kg... and then i went back to dr last week at 15 weeks those scales where 90.4... i think ill stick with the docs scales
and i can still get into my jeans... my high waist ones though is a no..
and i dont look prego either!
