How was your pre-pregnancy weight? Were you average, underweight, overweight?

How much have you gained this pregnancy?


I am overweight, sadly and not currently pregnant but my last pregnancy, I didn't gain at all, thankfully.

I was in the lower end of average (5'7" and about 127lbs). I've only gained 7 lbs so far (22 weeks) and I'm aiming for the 25-ish gain range. Hopefully I can get back to pre-pregnancy quickly!

Average I guess I am 5'3" and I weight 120 when I got pregnant and I'm at 149 and 21 weeks pregnant.

* I should add, with my ds I gained 55 pounds and walked out of the hospital in pre-pregnancy jeans.

I was 126 lbs before my first pregnancy (normal), got up to 174 lbs with that pregnancy. Before this pregnancy I was 146 lbs (overweight), I am at 20 weeks and weigh 142 lbs. Yay! Hoping to only gain 15 lbs with this pregnancy.

With my first I had just lost about 125 lbs and got pregnant at 310 lbs but even with horrible pizza cravings I only gained 12 lbs and the week after delivery I weighed 280. Then gained back to 310 got pregant again and dropped to 285. I have been working on my weight the last 2 years and got down to 185 this time before getting pregnant and now at 6 months I am up to 196 so I am really hopeful that my body decides to loose 30- 40 lbs from just delivery but partt of me is sure that wont happen. Oh well 200 is much better for me than over 400 :)

This boy again I was under weight same 110lb I'm 6mo pregnant and I've gained 40lb....so far. I got back to my pre pregnancy weight before with some work. Some how I get lucky and no stretch marks either.

I am about 120. I had just got back down to that after 6 years of being about 140-160. My first two pregnancies threw my weight all off, 9 years ago I was 5'4 and 110. I'll never see that again lol.
