  • Im not pregnant right now but 15 lbs halfway through sounds about right for me. I gained a total of 50 lbs with the first and 40 lbs with the second

  • I am 28 weeks and I've gained 18 lbs. I weigh 128 and I had a lady ask me the other night if I'm having twins 'cause I look so big. I didn't think I looked THAT big. If I steadily gain 1 lb. a week for the next 12 weeks, I will have gained EXACTLY what the doctor wants me to gain, 30 lbs.
