Re: How much have you gained so far??

At 24 weeks, I have gained 20 pounds. 20! It seems like too much, but I gained 33 with DD and was back in regular clothes 2 weeks later (not because of anything I did - I guess it was the breastfeeding) so I am hoping that the same thing happens again!

15 lbs at 28 weeks. I weigh the same at 28 weeks that I did during my first pregnancy even though I started at a different weight. Kind of weird and neat.

Re: How much have you gained so far??

I've gained like 21lbs and to me that's devastating. Not because I feel like I'm fat, but because I still have 14 weeks to go and that means I'll probably end up at 40-45

Re: How much have you gained so far??

40-45lbs is in the normal range, or at least I thought so?!?

I've gained about 20lbs, probably 17-18lbs and I don't think it's bad. I was about 130lbs and 5'8 to start out. I don't know I guess my weight comes off pretty quick, so I don't worry too much.

6lbs so far but then I was sick this week and lost 4 of it (which I'm sure will pop right back on when I feel better).

Re: How much have you gained so far??

Well, I was 162 at my 8 wk appt (up @10lbs from my usual)
I was 160 at my 10wk AND at my 14 wk appts. I gained back the 2lbs over Thanksgiving/Christmas to put me back at my starting weight of 162 by 21 wks.
Doctor was concerned about lack of weight gain so I forced myself to start eating more often, even though I just wasn't hungry.
My last appt at 25 wks, I was up to 176 so up 14lbs from my starting weight. And on my scale at home it says 178 at 27 wks, so we'll see in a couple of weeks at my 29 wk appt.
I guess 16-18lbs so far

It can't be as bad as with my oldest son. I gained 80+ with him. (He was almost 10lbs and I had excess fluid) I started at 110 and was 198 when I delivered. At least I was back to 130 within a couple of weeks...oh what it's like to be younger

Re: How much have you gained so far??

According to the Dr's office, who started tracking my weight at 8 weeks, I'm up 15lbs. According to my scale at home from a pre-pregnancy weight, I'm up about 20. I'll be 24 weeks tomorrow.

I wouldn't worry about it at all since it sounds like you're right on track with most of the rest of us. I think the 25-35lbs gained is BS. For some people, sure, but I don't think it applies to everyone. I have about 16 weeks to gain no more than 15lbs according to that, at a time when the baby is going to be growing the fastest... I don't think it's going to happen. BUT, my weight gain has been pretty steady (aside from the beginning, when I gained super quick from eating all the time) and I've been eating relatively healthy so I'm not too worried. It's taken me a long time to get to that point though... when I first passed the heaviest I'd ever been in my life, I freaked out. I think DH was a little worried because I started obsessing over my weight, even though it was normal.

Everything will be fine, don't worry!
