  • I am in the same boat as you. I started out 10 lbs. underweight and at 30 wks, have already gained about 24 lbs.! In the beginning, I gained a lot and did so intentionally because I heard that women in a normal, healthy weight range get pregnant more easily, so I gained about 5 lbs. before conceiving. My OB told me I'd gain about 35-40 lbs. It sux and I feel like I"m carrying so much weight around, but even in months when I eat very light, healthy foods and control myself, I still find that I'm gaining about 1 lb. every two weeks.

  • I gained the most with my first but with all 5 only gained around 10 lbs by the time I was 6 mths along. After that I gained most of my weight. With my first I gained 50 lbs, second 32 lbs, third 30 lbs, 4th I gained 21 lbs and 5th I gained 23 lbs by the time I had them.

  • I'm 25 weeks and have gained 3 pounds. I'm on a strict diet for GD and it helps to keep me from gaining to much weight since I'm overweight to begin with. I only gained 16 pounds with my 1st pregnancy.

  • I gained 50 -- 15 in the last 2 weeks and I had the baby at 37 weeks. I lost everything but five within the first few weeks. A lot of it is fluid! Don't worry about the weight gain and enjoy this time as much as you can!

  • I am pregnant with my 3rd baby, I am 16 wks and have gained 10 ibs. Each woman's body responds to pregnancy differently, the most important thing is the health and growth of the baby. I have found that it is better to worry about weight afterwards.
