Pregnancy Weight

How much weight is normal to put on in a pregnancy? This is my third, but not sure why im so conscious about being fat. Im 167cm and 79 kgs and 13 weeks pregnant and so far put on 3,4 kgs. Im excercising 3 times a week and eating better than ever.

I havent told anyone yet but feel people staring at me 😔

From memory about 13kg was recommended. I probably put on about 20kg each pregnancy, but didn't feel like I'd put on too much or anything, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. My midwife never mentioned it (And I was never weighed) 🤷‍♀️

 Just adding, I don't know exactly how much I put on as I didn't weigh myself very often, and not towards the end. I just went by how I felt.

don't be self conscious about being fat, be conscious and confident about being healthy!

It's okay, you'll lose at least 10 kgs after giving birth!
