  • I only gained 18lbs. but I was sick a lot at first and could not eat much so I think I kinda got used to not eating as much. My doctor was worried for awhile when I couldn't eat but it got better and everything turned out fine.

  • No one should be mean to you. Every woman is different.

    I gained 26 lbs while I was pregnant and lost 20 of it at delivery.
