Hi mummies, need some advice here.
I'm now in my 26th week. Weight gain has been quite steady and was at 51.3kg as of Tuesday. But on Wednesday, my weight jumped to 51.8kg and today (Thursday) my weight is at 52.2kg! That means I've gained about 1kg in just two days!!
I didn't overeat these few days and just ate as per normal... So why the sudden weight gain?
Any mummies experienced this before? Could it be because not me but my darling baby is putting on weight? hahaaa
its pretty normal i see.....
sometimes much of the wt is due to water retention
i also realised sometimes i gained 2 kg in 2 weeks lols~~~*pengz*
but pregnancy is fun ....enjoy the process ~~~~ *memories*
Think thats normal cos last week I also put on 1 kg for that week although I still eat as usual.
My hubby always said now is the best time for me to put on weight without ppl saying that you r fat. hahaha as long as your gyn says you and your baby are fine that there shouldnt be any problem. ^^
me too - i was shocked to find that i gained 3kg at my last checkup (24 weeks). previously i had only gained 0.5kg each month. but my gynae said it's normal and i should continue to eat healthily.
Thanks all mummy dearies for your kind replies!! Feel more relieved now heheee...
Yeahhh! Let's enjoy our pregnancies!!!
i have the same problem too *sobs*, for the 1st trimester i ate alot but only put on 1kg per month, 2nd trimester I ate like usual (before preggy) and I gained 3kg per month. My last checkup gyane already told me try to maintain @ 1kg a month...super worried now.
Yeah... I also feel that weight gain is fast during the 2nd trimester. Even though I have only gained 3.5kg at 27 weeks, the last 1kg was gained within just a few days, but I did watch my diet, scary huh...
Like what CancanMum and Stan said, may be it's due to water retention ... it seems like I have no control over my weight gain now, want to gain, gain ... as long as I dont't overeat and my baby is healthy hehe...
