  • there is no need to gain "more" unless your doctor is concerned. I only gained 11 lbs total during my pregnancy and had a happy, healthy 7lb 9 oz baby

  • I'm 20 weeks and have gained 6lbs this is also my 4th pregnancy and I have noticed that most weight is gained in the last 2-3 months.

  • Thank you all...It just kinda freaked me out thinking i should be gaining more weight when my dr told me she was going to "watch my weight" she made it sound like it was a bad thing that i've only gained about 10 lbs...

  • I'm 20 weeks and this is my first time carrying to term. I have only gained 4lbs during my 5months, i don't know if this helps... My doctor told me i have good muscle toning, and i don't work out at all...

  • I'm 36 1/2 weeks and I've gained about 36 pounds... my weight seems to be stopped now... so I'm not complaining.

  • I am 27 weeks and have gained 19 pounds. Every body is different. I have friends that have only gained 6-15 pounds the whole pregnancy and have healthy babies! Good luck!
