  • I gained about 30 pounds with my first and only 20 with my second. I started out my second 10 pounds heavier than my first though. Don't know if that makes a difference.

  • Are you eating properly? And is your dr. measuring you? If both are yes and the dr. isn't worried then you shouldn't worry.

    I only gained 7 lbs with my first full term baby and 10 with my twins, they only went to 32 weeks though. My first weighed almost 7 pounds herself.

  • I was the same way..I lost about 7 or 8 pounds the first 4 months of this pregnancy...by week 24 I had gained it all and was at my pre-pregnancy weight until 2 weeks ago at 35 weeks, last week i went to the doc and finally gained another 2 pounds. My doctor has always told me it was okay just that everything I ate was going to the baby and that he's healthy. She did tell me to stick to my vitamins though just because the baby is taking everything from me, which explained alot of my tireness.

  • i didnt gain anything during either of my pregnancies! I lost so much at the beginning of them that I wasnt able to gain it all back so I was under my pre-pregnancy weight both times. It really isnt a big deal at all
