  • I think I've gained about 5-10 pounds so far. I'm overweight to begin with, though, and VERY lucky somehow. I haven't exercised or anything, it's weird. But whatever, I'm healthy and my baby is healthy, so I'm happy =]

  • Oh...and I'm 32 weeks, lol. I know I'll gain a little more before I deliver, but I know I won't gain like 40 pounds in a few weeks.

  • I gained 12lbs. But it was acutally much more becuase I lost weight my first trimester, 11lbs. It was bad because my hubbies family were saying that I wasnt pregnant! LOL...oh were they wrong.
