  • Up until 5 weeks ago I had not gained any weight (I was pretty over weight to being with...). Then in the last 5 weeks I have gained 9 pounds. I'm 30 weeks now.

  • I gained 9lb in a month and my midwife said that 9lb every month would be too much...but that it was okay this one month because the baby goes through a huge growth spurt right now. I was 6 1/2 mos when he told me that so I bet that's your answer too!
