Kate’s determined to keep the baby weight to a minimum this time. How big did you get when you had a baby on board?

Although she is basking in the joy of impending motherhood with her beau Matt Bellamy, Kate Hudson is terrified of gaining too much baby weight. The actress, 31, packed on the pounds when she was expecting her son, Ryder, in 2003 and she’s worried she will gain even more this time around. “Kate gained 60 pounds when she was pregnant with her son,” a friend tells In Touch. But Kate is trying hard not making that mistake again.

“The day she found out she was pregnant with Ryder was the day she took out a license to eat,” her friend reveals. “She was even eating cupcakes for breakfast.”

“There’s nothing to be ashamed of when you blow up,” says Kate, whose son Ryder is now 7-years-old. She even confessed that she had a hard time controlling her cravings during her first pregnancy. “I would be eating ice cream, and my mom would literally pry the spoon away from me, saying, ‘You’ve had enough to last you a lifetime,” she told Vogue magazine in 2007.

HollyBaby.com asked celebrity wellness coach Jackie Keller how healthy it is for a mom-to-be  to overindulge and she was quick to point out that pregnant women only need to consume 300 extra calories a day. “That whole eating for two concept is a myth,” Jackie tells us. “In order to ensure the fetus develops properly, those extra calories should come in the form of low-fat calcium-rich dairy products, whole grain carbohydrates, lean proteins and vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables.” No ice cream, Kate!

But after the struggle she went through to drop those post-baby pounds, we think Kate will be following Jackie Keller’s advice. “Kate spent most of her time in the gym and dieting,” her friend says of her four month post-pregnancy routine. “She was determined to lose the weight, but it nearly killed her.” Tell us about your struggles to lose the baby weight, HollyMoms?

that tends to happen to alot of women in their first pregnancies as long as there wasn’t complications it’s totally fine. she’s 5’6″ so pregnancy weight is destributed differently than it is on somebody that’s 5’2″ like Elizabeth Taylor was when she was young. besides Ryder was in the healthy weight range for a newborn baby when he was born in January of 2004 weighing in at 8lbs 11oz and she comes from large stock herself she was 9lbs 14oz at birth and her brother Oliver was 11lbs at birth
