I feel so heavy!!! Lock Rss

I was wondering how much weight everyone put on during their pregnancy?

Ive read and heard that 10-13kgs is the "normal" amount of weight to put on.
Before I got pregnant I was around 65kgs now im 31 weeks and weigh 80kgs!! I feel so heavy and weighed down. And im scared im going to put heaps more on in the last two months.
I eat pretty healthy and go for walks everyday.
I feel like my whole body is getting bigger and after the baby im scared it wont go back to how it was!!!!
I put on 17kg. I weighed 60kg pre pregnancy and 77kg the last time i was weighed at 39wks. I hadnt put on any weight at 18wks and then put on a massive 6kg between 18-22wks and just kept putting it on after that. I went fat everywhere, fat a55, legs, face etc. Alot was baby though he was 9lb 3oz(just over 4kg) and i managed to lose the weight pretty soon afterwards but was left with stretchmarks which i hate.
With my DD i put on 9kgs and with this pregnancy so far i have only put on 7kg with a week to go. I find the smaller you are when you fell pregnant the more weight you put on. I was 70kg with my first and 75kg with this one.

My SIL was about the same weight you were when she fell and she put on 22kg with her pregnancy and she is no down to here pre-birth weight you will find a lot is fluid and if you are able to breastfeed it does come off quicker to i found.


Don't stress about it to much.

Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy.

I put on 20-25kg with each pregnancy (I used to be quite skinny). it didn't matter what I ate I just kept putting on weight. with DS1 I was huge all over & DS2 I wasn't too bad just had a massive massive belly. but managed to loose almost all of it after DS1 (hopefully it will be the same this time as well). but the stretch marks stayed around, faded a bit but now I have new ones.
try not to worry too much it's all for a good reason.
good luck with it all.
i put on 22kgs with DD and have gained about the same this time arond also smile
I put on 30kg with my last pregnancy started at 60kg and went up to 90kg !

I lost 20kg before getting pregnant this time and my weight gain hasnt been quite as much .

Dont stress , you are being healthy and excercising . Breastfeeding was how I lost the 20kg . I think your body just knows how much weight to put on . You will lose it after bubs is here , dont worry about it now smile
Thanks!!

wow only 9kgs smile

Im getting strech marks on my hips and one coming on my tummy too.
does bio oil or anything actually help or not?
No not really beacuse stretch marks form in the deep layers of skin . No oil or cream can penetrate that deep . I have them and they do eventually fade to a lovely silvery white .

You just learn to love your 'mummy love lines' smile
pre-pregnancy i was 53kg an at 41w2days i was 70kg so 17kg.....my DS was born 3.6kg soquite small and a week after he was born i weighed myself and i was back down to 57kg.

how the heck i lost all that m not sure...maybe there was lots of fluid around bubs or something lol....plus hes sucking the life out of my boobs hehe tongue

i was all belly too. didnt put weight on anywhere else whatsoever. actually looked like i had shoved a basketball up my top....was perfectly round and outwards hehe.

I was almost exactly the same as you! 53kg pre preg, went up to 68kg, my girl was 3.44kg and i went down to 57kg after she was born. I had a huge placenta, that in itself was quite amusing as my ex wanted to eat his food his mummy bought up for him (didnt bring any for me mind you, just for him) but it was sitting on the table next to the bowl of massive placenta the nurse had put there, hehe. He wouldnt eat cause he wouldnt go near the placenta bowl! I didnt feel sorry for him, i didnt have anything to eat and i was STARVING!!!

I was all belly also. And my daughter sucked my boobs away also, but i only fed for around 6weeks! I want a boob job! hehehe

After reading everyones posts.

I put on 35 kilos with my son. now 8 and half months later im struggling gettiing back to 67 my pre weight. im now 85 and this time i will not be putting on 35 kilos. far out my weight is massive compared to you all lol

Hi,

Everyone is different with weight gain during pregnancy.

DD1 - I put on 15kgs all up and lost it all within 6 weeks of birth.
DD2 - I put on 7kgs all up and lost it all within about a week of birth

This bub I've put on 9kgs so far and have 5 weeks left so probably going to put on roughly what I did with DD1.

Didn't get any strechmarks with my DD's but have noticed one or two appearing down low in the last week! Probably bcoz I think I'm a lot bigger this time around than with my DD's.

Best wishes for your pregnancy too grin
