  • Both pegnancies were 100 % healthy. I weighed 100 lbs the first time and they told me I needed to gain a lot because I was too thin and I gained 52 lbs and baby weighed 7 lbs 8 oz. The 2nd time I weighed 128 and gained 35 lbs and went a week overdue and baby weighed 7 lbs 2 oz. I think not eating like crazy just because you're pregnant and getting a little exercise everyday go along way. Also preggos eat too much salt and that's a big factor in high blood pressure and thus inducing.

  • I was about 155lbs before i was pregnant with my 1st and gained 10lbs quick i gained a total of 25lbs with him but it did not effect my pregnancy at all. I had a healthy pregnancy. With my current pregnancy i was 193lbs before i found out and i am in my 9mths with only 8days left to go and i have only gained 2lbs. i did things right this time around and walked and swam 3-4 times a week but i was working out before i found out i was pregnant.

  • I was 93 lbs. At delivery I weighed 130. It was a very healthy pregnancy, but she was delivered c-section. I went down to 118 lb. immediately. She was 7 lb. 11 oz. and 22 1/2 inches. She was very large for me.
