  • with my first i really took the whole eating for 2 thing seriously. i gained 100 lbs! it took me 2 years to lose it, with my 2nd and 3rd. i was careful, just eat a balance of each food group and minimal sweets, avoild things like the midnight sausage dog with mustard, and a court of ice creama day(thats how i did it with my first) and i only gained 25lbs with each of them. which i was happy to find i had lost it as soon as i was home from the hospital.

  • I gained 25 lbs. I ate better while I was pregnant than any other time in my life. I ate a lot of fruit, veggies,cereals & cranberry juice w/ water. NO fast food, salty snacks, hot dogs, lunch meat, fish, alcohol, soda. I weighed less after I gave birth than before I got pregnant.

  • I gained 35lb. I didn't restrict what I ate very much, just how much soda and stuff I consumed.

  • with my first baby I ate like crazy mostly junk food OK mostly everything in sight I gained 76 lbs but I was able to loose most of it in the last 2 years no I am 18 weeks pregnant and eating more fruits and veggies if I feel the need to snack like when watching a movie I normally go for pretzels over buttery popcorn and sunflower seeds instead of candy but there are still the nights that I go to the popcorn drawer and I add the extra butter but we all slip up from time to time don't we
