How much weight gain during pregnancy?

I've only gained 10 lbs and I've got like a month left. My mom (gave birth to 6 so she knows all :) ) is freaking out on me. My dr. doesn't seem concerned.

Just wondering what everyone else has gained?

  • 1st: -10 lbs (gallbladder issues)
    2nd: +35 lbs

    If your doc is happy and you're healthy, then tell mom you got this ... but thanks for caring :)

  • I gained between 35 and 40. My Dr was mad that I gained so much b/c I was heavy to begin with. I wasn't going to stop my body from doing what it needed to do. I am genetically designed to gain that much as was my sister, Mom, grandmother and my aunt and cousins.

  • First was about 25 and second almost 35... twins that time!! But like the pp said, if your dr isnt concerned then there is nothing to worry about.
