    Gained 2 kg in 4 days??

    At my last appt at QMH (which was on Friday the 15th), I weighed 68 kg (noted by the nurse).

    Today I went for my latest check-up, I weighed 70 kg also noted by the nurse.

    She said how did I gained so much within a few days?? Everything was noted (I took off shoes etc) but apparently I really did gain that much!!

    I'm 37 weeks today...has this happened to anyone here? Should I start eating less? Thanks!

    Don't worry about the last kilos, it can also depends on the time of the weight, the clothes you were wearing, if you went to the toilets before... I remember gaining lots of kilos in the last weeks, after being stable for 1 month, I took 4 kilos in 10 days !!

    The nurse said the clothes that I was wearing didn't contribute to that much of the weight...plus I went to the toilets and didn't have any food yet...

    you shouldn't worry at all. it's normal to put on more weight closer towards delivery. at 37 weeks, you should be eagerly anticipating the arrival of your baby and enjoying the last couple of weeks with your husband (and sleeping as much as you can), don't waste it worrying about weight :)

    good luck!!

    Was your blood pressure okay? I'd only worry if it was from retaining fluid

    Do you feel you are eating a lot more these last days, or junk food, or sweets, or fat ? if you haven't changed anything to you diet, then you have nothing to worry about...

    Was it the same time of day? Because we weigh less earlier in the day.

    With you being 37 weeks, it could be anything, I'd probably guess a bit more fluid retention. But I wouldn't stress about it as long as you're feeling ok and bub is still doing ok too. I do think that they stress too much about weight - and I also think that the weight charts they use are for petite Chinese ladies that have 5lb babies instead of larger framed westerners who have babies more like 8lb... I didn't gain that much (according to the books I read) in my pregnancy, but at QMH they still told me I was gaining too much. I was BELOW my pre-pregnancy weight when my bub was only 2 months old, so I have no idea what planet they were on, but it wasn't reality!!
