  • I went from wearing 00 and being 96lbs. To gaining 40lbs. That was with my son. I was in shock. I refused to wear anything, but coveralls. With my daughter. I barely hit 20lbs of weight gained. I still have a small tummy from her. :( I loath tummy cunches though.

  • I gained over 100lbs with my first. I went from a very muscular, athletic sz 2, to... well.... I don't want to admit it!

    It took 3 years to take it off and get back into shape, while I was pregnant I was miserable and in constant pain from my joints- swimming, and waterfitness classes we the best relief I could have hoped for!

  • your dr can give you different excercises to do, try to it healthier. when i was diagnosed with gestational diabetes they put me on a healthy diet which worked great. i gained a whole 20lbs and had a healthy baby

  • your weight gain will probably level off from this point on. don't worry about it, pregnancy should be the one time in our lives we don't have to worry about our weight or figure. i gained about 40 with my last one and lost some with a lot of working out, i get tired of working and dieting within 4 months. it helps to breastfeed, that burns tons of calories, but my friend kally send me a site to buy a meal for mom, i lose 40lbs that gained and 20 more, it good, you just have to keep up. she did the same thing too
