Hi guys I'm 20 weeks on Monday and decided to weigh myself today. Although I knew I'd probably gained just over a stone I was shocked to see I've actually gained 20-24lbs already!! (Not 100% sure of exact weight at start as i had ivf and had gained a few pounds with comfort eating during the ivf process ).
On the nhs site it says at 20 weeks the guideline for weight gain is under 10lbs so I've doubled that. I'm just feeling disappointed in myself abd had a good cry as I know I've been lenient as to having the odd treat and perhaps with Christmas they've been daily treats, plus I seem to just want loads of carbs.
I think I'll talk to my midwife and make sure I'm not in danger of creating a risk to my baby and perhaps ask if I should try and just have a high protein,low carb eating plan? Obviously I don't want to restrict my baby of any nutrients that he/she needs but I also don't want to gain too much fat that could cause complications xx
