Re: Pregnancy weight gain

Gained 80 lbs with my first. Only lost 30, and sat there until I did P90X and lost a bunch of weight (5'1, got down to 138lbs!)

Started this pregnancy about 8-12lbs overweight. At 20ish weeks, I had only gained 7lbs. At 38 weeks I had gained 36lbs total. Ate extremely healthy this time, exercised when I could. Stayed away from fattening foods, stayed away and minimized carbs and starches like breads and pastas. I pretty much lived off of protein(meat, beans, nuts) and salads! Also stayed away from sugary drinks. Water/ice is my best friend. Nearing the end now, and really, really hoping I lose the majority of this weight soon after delivery.
