Gained 6lbs in 10 weeks - Time to get by butt into gear for baby #1!
I'm new to the pregnancy section! Started TTC at the start of January this year and got our BFP on 9th April 2014 at 4 weeks 1 day!! So happy and feel so lucky it happened so quickly for us :D I'm exactly 11 weeks today.
I've been a member at SW since Feb 2013 and up until the day we found out I had lost 4 stone 11 lbs and to be honest I am absolutly petrified of gaining this, so this thread is going to be my kick up the bum to get me back into gear after gaining 6 lbs in 10 weeks!
This is how I gained that weight;
Week 4 - BFP
Week 5 - Gained 3 lbs
Week 6 - Gained 3 lbs
Week 7 - STS
Week 8 - Gained 1.5
Week 9 - Lost 2 lbs
Week 10 - Gained 0.5
I weigh this evening for Week 11 and know I have another gain coming my way of possibly 4 lbs! I started pregnancy at 13 st 9 lbs and a healthy weight gain for me is estimated between 15 - 20 lbs.
After today I will be continuing to swim 30 gentle lengths 3 times a week (used to do this before conceiving but stopped when we found out) also going to add half hour on my bike machine 3 times per week. Does this sound like a good start to getting back on the right tracks?
I have had no sickness but have completely gone off salad/veg and just want carb loaded, stodgy meals!
Sorry for my first post being a little bit of a rant - I'ts my first pregnancy and hormones are flying all around the place at the moment which I know you will understand :giggle: forcing myself to group tonight expecting this gain. Would be nice to speak to some other expectant mums to be :D
