  • I didn't gain much in the beginging. The suddenly....WAH-BAM!...I popped and turned into the roundest dumpling ever. If you are eating well, lots of veggies and fruits and omegas, your baby is probably growing just fine.
    (But, if your "momma senses" tell you something is your Dr./MW and tell her what you are thinking/feeling.)

  • I only gained 15lbs with my 3rd pregnancy and 18lbs is the most i ever gained in all 3 of my pregnancies.

  • Yeah. That's actually a good gain for the first 19 weeks. You will gain it faster as the baby gets bigger during the 3rd trimester.

  • you just have to remember at 19 weeks the baby is only about 8-9 oz, so the baby wount start putting on weight til a little later, and who knows maybe in a month or so you may gain a bunch like i did. GL

  • It depends on a lot of things.. if you were overweight or not pre-pregnancy, and if you are healthy overall... but I think 10lbs puts you on an even track.
