Weight and bump

Oct 11, 2011 - 6 comments

I am 22+5weeks. In the past 10 days I have gained 4lbs. I weigh myself every morning after visiting the bathroom, (sorry if tmi) wearing only pjs and slippers and in the exact same spot. So I have gained this. I hope it dont be 4lbs a fortnight for the rest of my pregnancy or ill be huge, lol. There I was worried about what I was eating, lol. Obviously enough. Then I have sarted measuring my bump from pubic bone up and over, and from side to side, again right after I weigh myself in the morning. I have grown 3 and a half inches each way in approx 6 days. She is definately growing. I am so glad I am getting a scan at 34weeks to check her size as a 10lb baby, just wont fit out of there, lol. Ill keep you all posted on my size. Im gonna post another bump pic too.

I think your having a big growth spurt which I'm sure is normal I had mine at 25-27 weeks i had gained 7 lbs in those 2 weeks!! Which scared me haha but was reassured it was normal and it does happen you should expect to keep gaining quite a bit so I wouldn't worry since your small you seem healthy and it's all baby forsure!! And as for a big baby you'd be surprised at how many women birth a 9.5 pound baby no problem even small women so I wouldn't worry!! Very rarely you'll make a baby your body can't push out!!!

like i said before mine was 9lbs 7ozs and that resulted in a shoulder dyoscia because the baby was too big and her shoulder got caught on my pubic bone, which resulted in a broken collar bone for her, it healed my sometimes its much worse. she was also my third baby,

This is my second as most of you know and my DS was 9lbs 4oz so I know I can do that, I just dont want to, lol. Thanks for the replies, I am sure hoping itsjust a spurt. I am very proud of my baby bump you know. It wont matter how big it gets :)

You only need to measure from the top of your uterus to the top of your pubic bone hun. I never eat loads, and I've put on nearly 3 and half stone since becoming pregnant. MW's think my litle girl will prob be around 7lb10. At the moment she's just putting her fat on and am putting on nearly 2lbs a day!!!
I feel huge and cannot wait for her to be here lol. Be ver proud of your bump hehe :);)

Thanks BabyDreamin, yeah I measure bump up and down from uterus to pubic bone but it seems be very round as measuring the same all round, lol. I am very proud of my bump, as I am sure you are of yours. Not long left for you, 45 days will fly in. Ive not even put on a stone yet, its all bump, no extra weight for me. I was hoping I would as well. Thank you so much for your lovely words. Keep well and let that bump grow, no stresses. :)
