  • as long as your eating healthy i dont think it matters.. i know that most dr recommend that you gain 25-35 pounds but everyone is different.. as long as what your putting in is healthy i dont think it matters.. :D

  • nope, if you're hungry you need to eat. as long as you're putting whole nutrients in your body and nothing processed, you're doing great

  • As long as your OB isn't concerned, then don't be. I remember being the same way though, I thought I was gaining way too much weight. But the OB said I was doing just fine. I gained a total of 45 lbs. with my son, he weighed 8 lbs. 9 oz. at birth and was 4 days late. I swear those last 5 lbs. came on during those 4 days!! No worries though, I am still holding onto about 5 lbs. and I think it's in my boobs, LOL, and I now have excess skin on my stomach :(

  • Im six monthes and have gained about 15 pounds and am barely showing and i hate it! The weird thing he is measuring big via ultra sound. Watch what your eating, cut down on fast food and instead of sweets eat fruits instead.
