  • i was 88 lbs and gained 15 lbs through out my pregnancy. I am very petite. My doctor wanted me to gain 40 lbs, but of course i didn't. That was too much weight for me to gain.

  • when i had my first i was 110 when i got pregnant and 123 when i delivered, so i gaines 13 pounds with her. she weighed 7lbs 7oz and was 20 inches long. the only reason i didnt gain a ton of weight with her was because i had gestational diabetes and had to be super careful about what i ate because my diabetes was only diet controlled and i didnt want to have to go on insulin so i played it safe.

    with my second baby which was only 20 months after my first i started at 152 and weighed 168 when i had him so i gained 16 pounds with him. the reason i weighed alot more at the start of my second pregnancy is because the doctors didnt notice that the diabetes didnt go away after i delivered like it was supposed to so i was/am still diabetic and once i delivered my first i went a little crazy on all the food that i couldnt have when i was pregnant, which i never would have done if i knew the diabetes didnt go away...

  • My first, I was 127 start and was 158 when I delivered.

    my second, I was 153 start and 165 when I delivered. I was on restriction for this one because I started high. The doctor did not want me gaining too much.

  • I was between 105-120 lbs with all 5 of mine. I gained between 12-22 lbs with each. My drs never got on me about gaining too much - I had gestational diabetes with 4 out of the 5, but it was well controlled with diet and exercise. My kids were between 7 lbs 7 oz and 8 lbs 9 oz.

  • 1st pregnancy- started 124 delivered at 148 so I gained 24 pounds.
    2nd pregnancy- I am 23 weeks and started at 111 lbs. and have gained 17 pounds.

    The dr. wasn't worried last time and so far he hasn't said anything!
