Re: Weight gain

I'm 20 weeks and have gained 5. I usually gain the bulk of my weight in weeks 20-35 (I don't gain in the last month.. I usually lose a few lbs). I gained 20 with my first, 25 with my 2nd and 17 with my 3rd (and oddly enough, she was my biggest). I think it's normal for your weight to jump and then have a few weeks without weight gain. My Midwife is always mellow about it. She wants me to exercise and eat well. My body will do the rest. Relax and know that the scale will go back down after your baby is here.
In with my DH, crunchy, attached Mama to 4. Homeschooling, long term breastfeeding, CD'ing, babywearing, homebirthing. Could I BE anymore addicted to cloth?!
