  • I think you look great, like I was its all in your belly. If you are worried about gaining more water weight (and it will get worse toward the end) cut out as much salt as you can. I did and lost 5 lbs in a week!!

    As far as the 50lbs, I went from 140 up to 190, and I am currently sitting at 170 and losing about a pound a week now that I finally started exercising...your doctor might say something, but don't worry about it. If you are eating healthy and not junk, then you are doing great.

  • If your smaller your suppose to be in the 30-40 lb range.
    My cousin was a size 2 and gained 35 lbs.
    SIL was a size 3 and gained like 25 lbs with both of her pregnancies and had a cute, little baby bump that never got big. You couldn't even tell she had kids. She was just as skinny while pregnant as she was before besides her little pregnant belly.
    From the looks of it you haven't just gained all baby and normal baby padding.

  • I didn't mean that in a bad way at all either, You do look like you have some water weight. I did too.
    Maybe some extra weight, but don't worry about it. You look great being pregnant.
