  • I gained 36 pounds during my pregnancy. Everyone gains a different amount based on height, previous weight, morning sickeness, etc. I wouldn't worry about your weight gain unless your doctor shows some concern. Just focus on eating healthy and exercising.

  • With my first I gained 11lbs (he was only 3lbs at birth), and my second I gained 25 lbs and he was born at 23 weeks. I think your weight is ok depending on what your starting weight was.

  • During my first pregnancy I gained 42 pounds total. I lost it all by 8 months. With my son I gained a total of 56 pounds, and I have all but 12 gone already at 2 months postpartum. It doesn't matter how much you gain as long as it is gained eating healthy food. I was on a high-protein diet with my son, and that's why I gained so much (it also grew a 10 pound baby lol). It worked, though, both of us were totally healthy and he was born without any problems.

    I think women worry too much about it. Just let yourself be pregnant and enjoy it and worry about weight AFTER the baby is born. It really does just melt off if you eat healthy and exercise.

  • I've gained 10lbs and I'm only 8 weeks. I gained 60lbs with my son and I'll probably end up being a porker with this baby to, lol. There is NO need to worry about weight gain unless you weren't gaining enough.
