I think weight gain is an individual thing. Some women gain some weight before 12wks whilst others don't start gaining until around 18wks.

With my last pregnancy i was a size 18 when i fell pregnant & was still in my size 18 jeans when i was about 18-19 weeks.

As for weight loss Slimming world is ok during pregnancy but i think you may have to get a form signed from your midwife.... not 100% sure on that as i didn't do it whilst pregnant.

Congratulations on your pregnancy :)

Update :)
My baby boy is 2 weeks old today and I followed SW right up till about week 32 of my pregnancy then gave myself december off.Hubby and I weighed in yesterday and I was AMAZED and very happy to see I only weigh 7lbs more now than I did the day I found out I was pregnant :D:D
So it IS possible although I won't deny I found it hard not to stuff my face at times and take advantage of the whole "eating for two" thing.Good luck to anyone ttcing or preggers and trying to keep those lbs off xxx

Thankyou Cas x
He was 7lbs 13.5 and is totally gorgeous :D Hubby and I started back on SW today.He was horrified to see he's put on almost 2 stone since we stopped going to class a couple of months ago so is reallllly determined to stick at it with me.I'm very happy with the gain after putting on over 4 stone with my third and didn't have to buy maternity clothes at all and walked out of labour ward in my normal clothes.WELL worth sticking to plan to not feel like a total blob :p Here's to the next couple of stone..I WILL be thin by summer! xx

Wow you must of felt great coming home from your hospital in your normal clothes with your georgeous baby boy:). I've got about 14 wks left this is baby num 3 so far im few pounds lighter than before pregnancy but i've not been dieting just keeping an eye on my weight and eatin normally but as its a new year going try and eat better and hopfully lose a few pounds if I can. Last pregnancy gained nearly 3 stone so don't want to do that again. Its funny how our men tend to gain more than us during pregnancy but its lovely to hear that you go to class together and can support each other along the way x
