How much weight did YOU gain?

Hi all. I just thought it would be fun to look at the similarities. I gained a whopping 67 pounds with my first son. I am now prego with #2 and am trying not to gain so much!

  • I gained about 35 with my first two. Now I'm 25 weeks with my third and so far gaining the same amount of weight (I have a book that has spaces for me to write these things in).

  • I gained 82 lbs... Every time my husband took me to the Dr. I would just cry. I was on bedrest for 3 long long months. Soon as my son was born I couldn't stand still. LOL.... I lost all of my weight , but it didn't happen fast either. I had to workout everysingle day for nine months to loss the weight.

  • baby #1 from 112 to 163 so 51 lbs
    baby #2 from 117 to 167 so 50 lbs
    baby #3 from 123 to 183 so 60 lbs
    baby #4 is only half way cooked and I have gained 4 lbs so far, so we'll see.

  • With my first I gained 62 lbs. In the 10 months following delivery, I lost 50 lbs. and then got pregnant again before I had a chance to lose the rest. With my second I gained 50. In the 10 months following delivery, I lost 45 lbs and then got pregnant again. I'm now a little over 7 months pregnant with my 3rd and have gained 27 lbs so far.

    Since I'm still carrying around a little extra weight from the first 2 pregnancies, I will have to work hard to lose the weight after this third. My husband is very fit and works out a lot, so that's great motivation to get fit myself.
