How much weight did you gain?

How much total weight did you gain with your PG's?

I am curious because I always gain about 50 pounds with singletons! How do you mommas that hardly gain anything or gain only the right amount do it? What is your secret?

I gained almost 40 according to their scales. I started out around 135 and ended at 174 I think. I was big!

Re: How much weight did you gain?

With my first daughter, I gained 8 lbs, and she weighed 9.

With my second daughter, I actually lost 4 lbs and she was 9-11.

With my son, I gained 35 lbs and he weighed 7-6. A year later, 25 of these pounds are still with me. :-/

The difference is that with baby #1, I had somewhat controlled gestational diabetes. With baby #2, the diabetes was mostly NOT under control. With baby #3, I took LOADS of insulin.

Re: How much weight did you gain?

I gained 31 pounds with my first. Second and third I only gained about 12 pounds.

Not sure what the difference was. I think the first one I had more stress so I ate more.

Re: How much weight did you gain?

With my first, I gained about 55! I went a little overboard with the eating. I totally learned my lesson. I still had 20 lbs on me from Paige when I got preggo with Logan. I only gained 28 with him. I've lost about 35 now, and would like to lose about 15 more to be where I'd feel better.
