I will be 30 weeks pregnant this Thursday, have I gained enough weight so far?

I went to see my Dr and since my last visit two weeks ago I have not gained any weight, lost about half a pound instead. At the very beginning of my pregnancy I was 147 and to date I now weigh 158 total of 11 pounds gained. Baby Gabriel according to the Dr is right on target with his weight 2lbs 14oz I just dont know if I should weigh be more than what I am currently. Just curious.

  • it depends on your body type, how you carry, and if you are obiese(sp) if the doc is not worried i wouldnt be either. my first pregnancy i gained exactly 30 lbs and with this one so far i keep fluxuating between 20 and 25 pounds gained. and i am due next monday. most women dont gain that much weight till the end.. that is what happened with me in both pregnancies so far, gained all my weight in the last month if not last few weeks.

  • i didn't even start to gain any weight until i was about 30 weeks pregnant with all 3 of my babies. This preg. i have not gained any either, ive lost about 7lbs, but then again im only 12 weeks along. I think you are doing great!

  • I started my pregnancy at 146.5, then went down to 132 (severe morning sickness) and I'm now 26 wks and 148. The Dr. Says "As long as you are eating a well balanced diet and you and baby are healthy, POUNDS DONT MATTER."

  • Thanks to everyone for your comments. It's amazing how different everyone can be. My mother only gained 12 pounds for me and I was 7 6oz. I am not going to be exactly like her but maybe follow in her foot steps as far as not gaining that much this first pregnancy. We shall see!
