  • Ideal weight gain is 30-35 pounds I believe. I gained almost 50.

  • I think it all depends on what your doctor says. It doesn't sound like a big deal to me. A friend of mine gained 60 pounds with her son and she was tiny. I was overweight with my daughter and I only gained 22 pounds. As long as you are eating well and getting some exercise, I wouldn't be too concerned.

  • I am 20 weeks and have gained about 20 pounds...but i look 8 months pregnant! Everyone thinks I'm having twins! Hopefully I will find out at the doctor today.

  • I went from 135 to 190 throughout my pregnancy and my doc was pissed cause I gained too much. I even was watching what I ate, and eating healthy! Don't worry, you'll be OK, even if your doc gives you shit for it.

  • i was gaining a ton of weight every dr visit i went to and then lately once i hit about 28 weeks it just stopped i have been the same weight for like a month i think i gained a pound or two. i was worried i gained too much but as long as ur eating right and ur baby is gaining right which they can tell by measuring ur uterus then ur fine and u will lose weight when u give birth
