Pregnancy checkup

I went to the doctors yesterday to my monthly check up and found that I gained about 2kgs in a month. Christmas!! Damn it! Here I was thinking I'd done good. Anyway, I was chatting to the doctor about how much extra weight should I look at putting on. The doctor believes I should aim to be approx 10kgs heavier than I was when I had my first weigh in. Sounds fair I suppose since I'm overweight to begin with and I have a strong feeling I'd gained a bit before my first antinatal check at 3mos. So that is my goal and I think it might be achievable. I'm in my second trimester (I'm actually 17wks on Friday). Further than I thought, since I wasn't really counting.

I have a distinct belly, that is for sure, and for a while now I could feel the baby move. Andrew had his first feel, although it was really light - I doubt he'll get a solid kick until about the 6th month. On the 29th Jan, I'm going for my 18wk scan. Yes, I'm going to find out the sex. I believe in getting my half-time prize! :p

Happy 17 weeks! I'm so jealous that you can feel your wee one moving already!

Do you have a feel for what gender the baby will be?

2kgs isn't too bad, Jodie! When I was pregnant with my daughter I put on 20+kgs. Ouch!

Don't beat yourself up, being pregnant means you gain weight. It's the only time we're allowed, right? LOL

Can't wait to hear what you're having!
