2nd preg- gain weight faster???

Just wondering how you all gained your 2nd time around. I gained a ton with DD and this time I'm trying to do better- I'm working out a few times a week, etc...but the weight is piling on FASTER! I hadn't gained this much last time. Am I in trouble?!?!?!

Re: 2nd preg- gain weight faster???

I have gained more this time, but I wasn't as sick. I started out less then I was with my first...so I am trying to tell myself that's okay . I'll probably gain close to 50....man that's a lot.

I KNOW!! I gained 47.4 with dd and I wanted to go 35-40 this time so I figured if I worked out this time it would be doable....BUT at 13 weeks last time I was only at 6 lbs and I'm only 11 weeks and at 8!

Re: 2nd preg- gain weight faster???

I gained 50lbs with dd. I did loose it all after delivery, so I startes this pregnancy at the same weight if that makes a difference. My goal this time was to gain anything less than that, lol. I am in my 3 trimester now and have gained 30lbs so I'm on the same track I guess. I have watched my eating etc etc but I guess thats just how my body does pregnancies. in my second trimester were my biggest gains though, 5lbs, 9lbs, and 8lbs were my weight gains for the second trimester. So about the same. I guess its what my body needs to make a healthy baby. Sry for rambling

Re: 2nd preg- gain weight faster???

I guess I am having the opposite problem. I gained about 30-35 lbs with dd. Started out about 10 lbs heavier this time, but have only gained 6 lbs so far (22 wks). I will be really happy if this continues...

My second weight gain was significantly less than my first pregnancy. I am not sure why, but maybe b/c they were different sexes? I didn't do much differently.

Re: 2nd preg- gain weight faster???

Well i started this (my 2nd pregnancy) a few pounds lighter than my first and didn't gain anything for the first 3 months but then I went to my last (3rd I think) appointment and gained 16 pounds!!! The midwife made me reweigh myself to be sure and i know that's alot more than my 1st pregnancy so I am trying to very aware of what I put in my body now but I am finding it very difficult to fit exercise into my schedule in addition to chasing around my toddler so I don't really know how this pregnancy will work out in terms of weight gain (not to mention that I feel hungry all of the time, lol)

Re: 2nd preg- gain weight faster???

With my DD I gained I think 40-43 lbs, which took me a year to fully fit back in my pre preggo jeans. With this pregnancy I've gained 13lbs (I'm at 33 wks) so I hoping to only gain baby weight now lol. I think me walking a lot helped this time around, I also haven't been craving/eating alot of sweets either.
