  • I'll find out about what I've gained so far when I go to the OB this afternoon, but according to my scale, I've gained just under 9 lbs and I'm 24.5 weeks along.

  • by the end of my pregnancy, i gained about 35-40 pounds & had an 8lb 4oz baby. obviously weight gain is inevitable. i wouldn't worry so much about weight control during pregnancy. consider it your free pass. just continue to eat healthy whenever you feel hungry, limit your sugar intake, & enjoy it. you'll lose most of the baby weight in delivery anyway. by my 6 week postpartum check up, i was only 4 pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight. breastfeeding will help shed the pounds.
