I am sure I am not the only one with weight gain issue but I am really worried about this.
I was 57kg (8.9 stones)when I got pregnant and I am 1.67 tall/ 5.6 inc.
I am very active I workout 5 times a week and my last body % fat was 15% which is very low for a woman.
But since I fell pregnant I have put on 6.5kg which is 14.33pounds.
The first 12 weeks I felt very nauseous so I wasn't eating as healthy as I did before but since my nausea passed I have been eating mostly well and best of all I don't have sweet tooth. So lots of protein, fruit, flax seeds, veg and salads though I do allow myself to have couple of big treats a week, eg fish and chips or a pie.
I still train 5 times a week of course the intensity is much lower (I also monitor my heart rate just to make sure I am not over doing) then what I am use to and I work as a nanny looking after 2 very active children so I am on my feet walking a lot.
My heart rate monitor shows me that I burn a lot of calories (it is very accurate) going from 2000 to 2700kcal a day.
So I was really shocked to find out this morning of my weight gain.
Can any of you let me know how much you put on in the first 20 weeks or even after this, how you felt etc......
At the end of the day all I want is for my baby to be happy and healthy so If it means this is normal then I will be more then happy but I was told to try and not put more then 14 kg in the whole pregnancy so this might be a bit of a problem if I keep on putting weight at this rate.
