  • it happens. it's seems that the ones who try the hardest to gain the minimal amount of weight end up gaining the most. i gained 60 lbs and that was eating crazy healthy and working HARD at the gym 2 hrs a day, and no it wasn't muscle weight. i was close to underweight too. luckily i'm back to my normal 98

  • If your dr didnt say anything is wrong I wouldnt worry everyone is different. sometimes you gain a lot at the begining and less at the end sometimes its opposite.....

  • I'm 22 weeks and have lost 21lbs. I started out about 25lbs over weight anyways though. As long as your doctor didn't say anything, your fine. Typically they say about a lb a week. If your in normal range for your BMI then that means you should gain between 35-40lbs.

  • for my 1st pregnancy i gained 50 lbs, for my 2nd i gained 14 lbs. it really depends on how much you weighed before you got pregnant. are you underweight, normal or overweight? ask your doctor at your next appt. make sure you eat a healthy diet but still eat the stuff you crave in moderation.

  • I was close to underweight when I began. I eat so healthy and get exercise everyday, but man... this ass doesn't stop getting bigger.
