So I've gained 30lbs so far and I'm 28 weeks along. I'm having a hard time because I gained waaaaay more than I should of/wanted to this past month and in addition to feeling bad, dealing with pregnancy body issues and all the not so fun stuff that goes along with that my lovely DH ha started to ask how much I gained with the last pregnancy and why I'm "so tired this time around". (Mind you I have an 18 month-old to chace around this time!) I know my "target" is 35lbs max but I was curious how many women actually stick to that.

I have gained anywhere from 25-45 pounds, depending on which pregnancy.

I had morning sickness pretty much the WHOLE pregnancy, so I lost a hood bit of weight. Which wasn't a bad thing since I was already over weight. Then the last month everything change & I could finally eat again & gained about 5lbs. But pretty much everyone I know gained a ton.
& of course your going to be tired if you already have a little one running around.
