  • i'm 34 weeks and i'v gained about 25. my sister lost weight while she was pregnant. she stuck to a very strict low fat diet. she ate tons of fruit and veggies and drank lots and lots of water. breastfeeding helped us both lose weight after we had our first babies too.

  • last time i got weighed i gained a total of about 6 lbs at about 29/30 weeks (i had also lost 5 lbs that month). i am high risk so i get constant reassurance via doc visits and ultrasounds that baby is growing fine... more appts next week. i was overweight when i got pregnant (thank you depo provera - i think the pregnancy is actually undoing years worth of damage caused by that - time will tell).

  • I am 33weeks and high risk because of my age and also overweight and I wasn't told to limit weight gain but I do know I should. So far I have gained 20lbs. and I have morning sickness again in this trimester so I am hoping that I won't gain anymore.

  • I am 31 weeks and at the last check I had gained 22 pounds. I will go back again Tomorrow and find out if I have gained anymore. They told me to gain between 25 and 30 so I am right where I need to be.
