  • I gained around 60 or 65lbs this last time. I loved my belly getting bigger!

  • I was at first, because I was hoping to keep a few pounds after the baby was born. I gained 50 pounds with my first, and it was just too much for my frame to handle. Then, after, I didn't get to keep any of it! I gained 35 with my second, and again, didn't get to keep any pounds after. I did like seeing my belly get round, but that was about it.

  • I gained about 50 lbs with both girls. I hated it. I actually hated being pregnant, not just because of the weight gain but because it was so uncomfortable.

    I'm very petite, so I looked like a bowling ball when I was pregnant. Having DD breasts was nice, though. :)

  • Maybe the first or second time I was pregnant, but then I discovered how hard it is to take it off with each pregnancy.

  • I gained 42 lbs.

    I wouldn't say I enjoyed it.

    But I DID enjoy watching it all fall off me after Hunter was born.

  • I have never had the joy of being pregnant or gaining the preggo weight... but I wanted to complain.

    I LOVE Seeing preggo bellies. They are beautiful!!! I hate when pregnant women complain about their weight. Its a beautiful thing... Feel blessed that you get to experience it.
