  • With my first pregnancy ... I had toxemia and it made me gain a tremendous amount of water weight! When I got pregnant I weighed 118 lbs and at time of labor was up to 209! (I gained 92 pounds!!! Ugh ... my waist size went from 24" to 52" in 8 months!) Count yourself lucky! :o) (I think the average weight gain for full pregnancy is between 40-45 lbs)

  • I gained a grand total of 93 lbs with my DD so your measly 28...I wish!

    My mother gained over 100 with each of us kids. We both dropped all that weight within the first 6 months though. If I only gained 28 lbs, I would probably have a hard time getting rid of it, lol

  • I gained 40 lbs with my daughter. With this one I've only gained 9 lbs and I'm 39 weeks. Everyone is different and so is every pregnancy.

  • I'm almost 32 weeks and have gained 22 lbs so far. It's pretty normal to gain more the second time around, although for me I seem to be gaining less. I gained 40 lbs with my first DS.

  • I'm 29 weeks and have gained 11lbs from my prepreggo weight. But I lost almost 10lbs during morning sickness, and I'm also considered overweight (cuz of ten extra pounds), so my doc told me to keep my weight gain between 15-25lbs. I was five lbs overweight at the start of my first pregnancy and I gained 40lbs. Took me til Dd was a year old to lose the weight, then I gained weight when I stopped breastfeeding her ...
    If you're prepreggo weight was in the normal range, you're right on track for weight gain :)
