Re: How much weight have you gained this pregnancy?

I gained 45 lbs. I started out 15lb overweight though too so I was sporting 60lb over my normal weight.

A few days after I had Mavick, I weighed myself and I had already lost 30lb. 30 to go. Nothing fits either ugh!!

Well, I hit my 40lb mark now at 39 weeks. Maybe he'll be here before I can put on too much more.

I started out overweight and lost 20 in the first 18 weeks, yay! (not much fun tho...) Just this week got back to my pre-preg weight... looking forward to being thinner after delivery! (all with my ob's approval, of course) :-)

I was up 60lbs too and have lost 31 at 17 days pp. It seems the weight loss is tapering off and I am losing about a pound ever 2-3 days now. I can't really complain, but I have to remember that with my last pregnancy even when the weight came off I still could not actually fit into my normal clothes until 6 months pp. I guess it takes awhile for these "birthing hips" to go back to a more normal size. I am currently 184lbs and 5'8" and I won't even try to fit into my size 14's because if I can't button them up I may cry.

Up 44lbs at 39+5 so that means only 1 lb in the last week. I'm happy about that but it seems a little odd, especially when you count the sodas I indulged in the past week.

I ended up gaining 40 lbs total. At one day postpartum, I had lost 20 lbs. I highly doubt I'll go back to my prepreg weight as it was the smallest I've been in about 8 years and I was a vegan! I'm not really worried about it. Even if I didn't lose another pound, I'm good with where my weight is.

wow! 30 pounds in a few days is awesome! I'm waiting at least 4 days to weigh myself.
