I'm in a few pregnancy groups and evey so often someone will post the question about how much weight you've gained so far, and it seems to me that most of the women are like 'I'm 36 weeks and have gained only 10 pounds!'. I mean come on now... I've gained 10 pounds just in my boobs and I'm only 29 weeks!
Do you think there is a stigma attached to gaining weight during pregnancy and that we feel like if we admit to others that we've gained the reccomended weight or even more that we'll be looked down upon? Or am really I the only person in the world who gains 25 pounds or more during pregnancy?

There is definitely a stigma! I am sure a lot of them do, but they are only fooling themselves, hey hun, I gained 50 pounds with each of my three pregnancies!!! you are not alone!

I gained 70 with my first son (ugh), and 35 with my second and I really had to work to only gain that 35. I think some people lie and some don't just like with anything else :0). I think your doing great with having gained 25. Good luck.
