Hey everyone,

Hope you're all doing well and great to see your LT journeys going so well.

I'm having a BIG problem right now. I found out last monday that I'm pregnant which prompted me to come of LT straight away, no refeeding or anything. In 2 weeks I have managed to almost gain back a stone of this weight and I'm just despairing.
This isn't right and I'm petrified that for the next 7 n a half months, I'll be gaining 2 stone a month.
I ate as healthily as I could have done yesterday and still managed to gain 1lb.
It's making me feel low and horrible as I am only supposed to be gaining between 11 and 20lbs during my whole pregnancy according to my BMI, which means that I've got 8lbs left. What do I do? Has anyone else fallen pregnant whilst on LT and gained weight this quickly and if so, how did you maintain and keep the weight down for as long as poss??
I need help as I'm just getting into bits right now.
Exercise is required more and I'm looking to get to do some swimming and I'm going to go for a walk today also.
I'm in tears as I feel like a complete disappointment and putting myself at risk from gestational diabetes and preeclampsia and feel like i'm doing wrong by my unborn baby.

LOTS OF HUGS for you. I'm sorry I can't give you any advice about being on here and getting pregnant. But I just wanted to send you lots of hugs. Its a scary time being pregnant. and I'm sure there will be people to help and advise you on here. You are eating healthy which is fantastic so your baby is getting all the goodness from you. When I got pregnant my poor baby mainly lived on Chocolate.
Hope yuo feel better soon I know its hard but feeling positive will help your baby too. X.

Did you know Slimming World is the only eating plan you can do while pregnant? Some people even find they've lost weight after the baby is born! I'm not sure whether you've tried SW but it might be worth thinking about. Good luck!

You don't have to do it forever, just to keep your weight down while you're pregnant, a lot of women think weight gain is inevitable but it doesn't have to be!
