Did you gain more weight on your 2nd pregnancy or less?

I gained the same amount each pregnancy but with my DD I was ballooned everywhere and mostly water weight and then with my DS I only had weight i the front. I was so big in the front it look like I was having twins.

  • I think I gained the same amount with both pregnancies but started the second one 20 lbs lighter than the first.

    At the end I looked exactly the same in the belly area- but you all know that!

  • Less but, I had pre-eclampsia with my first (so, I had some swelling).

  • More with the 1st for sure, most of it swelling but then I didn't lose it all afterwards so with my 2nd I was already more than with my first... I took better care of myself and had to really watch my sugars with my 2nd & 3rd though (borderline GD, thankfully didn't have to do insulin like my older sister did!)

  • I had pre-eclampsia with my 2nd and gained a ton due to that. My first pregnancy I gained 20 lbs, my 2nd 87 lbs. Best post-baby weight loss ever, though - by about 36 hours after delivering I had already dropped 50 lbs in water weight.

  • I gained almost exactly the same amount with the first 2. I was about 15 lbs heavier when I got pregnant with my first, so I looked much larger.

    I gained a lot more with my 3rd pregnancy.

  • Lots with 1 and 3, barely any with 2 and 4, none with 5.
