As of today I have gained 4 lbs from my prepregnancy weight and I am 21 weeks tomorrow. I had lost a few lbs and then was just not gaining any weight. No appetite and morning/evening sicknesss. My dr was happy today that I had gained 6 lbs in the past month though.

I am 15 weeks today, and as of my last appt, I lost 2 pounds. I don't know why. I eat, and I am not sick at all. I will just be happy with it though, because I know it won't last!

I'm almost 23 weeks and at my appt last week I had gained 8lbs. I'm a little nervous, I know 8lbs isn't much, but until 17 weeks I hadn't gained any weight at all. I was sick for a long time and wasn't eating much, once that went away I gained the 8lbs in only 4 weeks so at that rate (2lbs a week) I'll gain another 36 lbs by 40 weeks. So hopefully it was just those 8lbs that I gained so quick. I wouldn't worry if I was you though.

I just hit 25 weeks, and I've lost 10 pounds so far. I haven't gained any. But the doc says that she's growing really well (in his words, "This is one of the best pregnancies I've ever supervised!" lol), and I am eating, so we aren't worried about it, lol. It's nice, with my first pregnancy I never lost anything!

im 28 weeks and gained 20 so far! EEK! since my appt though ive been pretty good cut down snacking eating better and have been walking almost everyday yesterday i walked 3 miles with DH and DS so im hoping by my next appt ive slowed the weight gain down, I didnt think 20 lbs was bad but apparently  6lbs in one month was bad because the substitute dr (i say this because my reg doc couldnt see me) yelled at me saying 6lbs in a month is "a little much" and to watch it GRR my reg dr said he didnt care as long as i was gaining since i started at my ideal weight i could gain 35lbs. whatever lol im being careful now and exerciseing more so if i keep gaining like that i dont care lol
