    Hey I'm currently 24 weeks pregnant, I was at target before I found out I was pregnant and although I've been going every week to weigh in I have lost the plot totally, so am hoping to get back on the wagon tomorrow! I no I've gained more than the average just hope I can lose a few pounds over next few weeks to get back into average weight gain! Anyone else pregnant or lost weight during pregnancy at this stage??

    Hiya congratulations

    I am currently 17 weeks and gained 8lbs so far. Most of my.gain was in the 1st trimester but since 12weeks I started SW and only gained 2lbs.

    What I've done is set my self a weekly gain target of 1lb which will give me the max gain recommended. I'm trying to have a few STS inorder to keep the weight to a minimal amount.

    I sometimes find it hard to resist the excuse "I'm pregnant so I can eat more" lol but I remind myself that I don't want to have to try and lose loads of weight after baby. I did that with my 1st child and had to lose 4.5 stonewhich was hard.

    I just remind myself that this is far better for baby and if I so lose weight I try to keep it sensible.

    Good luck x

    I am almost 23 weeks and have gained 5lbs so far, which went on in the first trimester when I had morning sickness and horrid food aversion. I went off meat all dairy and veg and was living on bread lol. I could of literally started a bakery. I am following the plan now the sickness is gone and while I an not losing any weight , none is going on, so I am happy.

    Good luck!!!!

    I totally agree. I love that it takes the stress and worry with eating healthy. I worry that I'm not eating right for being pregnant but with SW that's all gone.

    I'm enjoying that I've only gone up on dress size and that's cos of a bump lol

    Hiya don't fret too much, the main thing is that you've decided to stop your weight escalating further.

    Good luck

    2 stones isn't that much hun? and just remember how much of that is baby, fluid, extra blood flow etc!! But good on you for making the start by getting weighed! Wish you all the luck :) xx
