  • My first weigh in at the doctors 5 weeks i was 242 lbs and the day that i delivered when i went to my appt i weighed 256lbs about 14lbs. I am now 9 weeks and look like i'm about 5 months. I dropped down to about 240 afterward and at my first apt i was 245 and now i'm at like 253 but my thyroid is screwed up and i'm on meds for that too.

  • I weighed 195 with my first, I gained 6 lbs. With the second and third I weighed 220 and gained 0 and 4 lbs.
    I lost 10-15lbs in the beginning in each of my pregnancies, and then gained it back slowly. The 6, 0, and 4lbs were all on top of my prepregnancy weight.

  • I weighed about 200 lbs when I got pregnant with my first 2 and gained 38 lbs each time. With my last one I weighed about 220 when I got pregnant and gained only about a half pound. I was loosing "me" weight while gaining "baby" weight so it was perfectly healthy.

  • I weighed 230 pounds when I got pregnant with my first, and 235 when she was born. (215 by the time she was a week old.)

    With my second, I was at 225, and weighed 240 when he was born, 220 by the time he was a week old.

    So I never really gain much weight when I'm pregnant, but I don't lose any after that initial weight drop either. It's like my body has this certain weight "memorized" and I just hang out there no matter what I do.

  • When I delivered ds last year I was 310, I didn't gain but about 10 pounds the entire pregnancy and then in the end I was gaining about 5 pounds a day in fluid because of high blood pressure. On September 1 of last year, I was 250, on the 11, I was 310 and doc put me in the hospital right away and induced me that day.
