  • i'm 34 weeks pregnant and until this week had gained less than 10 lbs - baby is actually big for his gestational age. i think i've gained 8 lbs this week alone - all in my thighs. ugh

  • I would ask your doctor about it. I think it might be normal though.

  • You could be experiencing a little water retention. Have you been on your feet a lot in the last week, more than usual?
