  • Yep, totally weird weight stuff when I was pregnant. Started out at 232, got down to 222, then week 30 hit, and I went on a baking binge! Ended up at 244 by the time he arrived. I wouldn't worry too much. As long as you're eating nutritious foods, taking your prenatals, and staying away from alcohol, drugs and smoking, I wouldn't worry too much. :)

  • Yes. I started at 175, weighed 194 at birth and left the hospital at 171. I was sick a lot.

  • Okay I don't want to offend you cause I am a big girl my self.. I am currently 320 BUT before I was pregnant I was 357 then dropped to 317 it stayed there for a bit now I am 319.4 Generally a larger person loses weight to make room for the baby. That is just what I have seen with my friends and bigger women. We all lose then gain about 20ish pound in total at the end of it.
