  • 20 pounds with each of them, and lost it in delivery room. Army docs were strict in the olden days.

  • I was lucky not having any appetite my first 30 weeks. I ended up with a gain of 12 lbs, but I was 232 to begin with.

  • 25 lbs. but I had gallstones & was in a lot of pain everytime I ate during the pregnancy. I didn't know it was caused by gallstones until after I delivered & the pain continued. I had it removed.
