I last got weighed and was at 194....

I feel like im gaining to much weight but i dont even eat really bad... My baby is weighing ahead of me.. im 33 weeks and she is weighing at 35-36 weeks.. she is almost 6lbs....

My boyfriend made me feel like shit about my weight gain tonight...I dont wanna gain anymore weight :[ I just wanna cry right now...

How much weight did you gain with your first child?
Did you ever get your body back?....

  • The recommended weight gain it 25-30 pounds. I gained 20-25 pounds with my first, and I lost it all right after she was born, it just fell off by itself. I am now 18 weeks prego with #2 and I have not gained any weight yet, but then again I am over weight.. =\

    You should put your man in his place. He does not need to be making you feel that way. Slap a hoe. ^-^

  • Iam 5'8 and with my first my weight was 125 and del at 150 but I was very sick everyday. I think you are on track. Tell him to stop being an ass! Let him carry a watermelon in his tummy and see how he looks. Hang in there hon.

  • first of all tell your bf that he is being a royal douche bag and to back off. dont worry about your weight right now. after baby comes you can lose it. as long as you are healthy and your doctor isnt concerned about it you have nothing to worry about. :)

  • With my 1st child I gained 60lbs!! EEK! I never got my figure back or have gotten back down to my pre-preg weight, but then again I haven't been trying, lol. I happy with who I am regardless of the numbers on the scales or the measurements.

    Your boyfriend is an ASS and wouldn't make you cry over your weight. If he really loved you he would accept you, flaws and all.

  • with my first unfortunatly I didn't gain enouph but with my second I gained around 50-60 lbs nice thing brestfeeding helps burn alot of callories and you will be buisy with the baby to burn more. if you try you can get your body back even if there are a few stretch marks. As for you rboyfriend tell him to stick it.
