*Please do not answer unless you have had twins*

I'm just curious how much weight everyone has gained during their twin pregnancies?
starting weight gain & full term weight gain.

I'm only 25 weeks.. I started out 121lbs and already up to 163lbs.
and I still have 3 months to go...

I feel HUGE!!!

  • I gained 60lbs during my twin pregnancy. But it came off pretty quickly after they were born!

  • My experience is probably not a great comparison for you since I was overweight when I got pregnant. Starting weight for me was 175 pounds, which is about 20 - 25 pounds heavier than I should have been. I gained 36 pounds and weighed 211 pounds the day the twins were born. You may find that weight gain slows down in the third trimester because it gets more difficult to eat much at one time. GL & Congrats!

  • You might find more responses from moms who are more similar to you in the Moms Who Have or Are Having Twins group: grouphttp://www.cafemom.com/group/21414. I know there are a few fitness instructor twin moms in that group.
