Re: How much weight did you gain?

I gained 25lbs with my girls BUT I was very overweight before I got pg & had severe food aversions & morning/noon/night sickness, even the strong anti-nausea meds didn't help. I went from 240 pp to 265 the day of delivery & 242 the day after delivery.

Re: How much weight did you gain?

Gained 30 pounds, lost 35 first week pp; by the grace of God. (BFing rocks!!)I just ate when I was hungry and stopped when I wasn't anymore. I craved meat, especially scrambled eggs with cheese, and sour stuff like lemon drops. Ate a lot of small meals during the day and would sometimes have half a PB&J sandwich if I woke up hungry at night.

Re: How much weight did you gain?

I gained a little over 40 lbs but most of that was water weight. I didn't even have ankles when I was 6 months along! I actually had to be induced on my due date because of pre-eclampsia.

Although, I am now 10 lbs MORE than what I weighed last year when I had just had my DD.

Re: How much weight did you gain?

With DD right about the time we were TTC I was 160 ( ). I was at around 150ish when they weighed me for my first prenatal visit and then I promptly lost another 3 or 4 pounds in the first tri. Didn't really start gaining any weight until about 20-25 weeks. I think total was right at 20 lbs. Most of that was gone almost immediately after I delivered. Then I lost another 15 pounds over the last 2 years.

So far now, 2 weeks ago when I went at 9 weeks I was 138, but yesterday I was back down to 135. So so far I appear to be repeating the same general pattern as last time.

Re: How much weight did you gain?

I gained 61lbs w/ my twins, all within like 16wks! I didn't gain until I was almost 20 weeks and then delivered at 34 wks.

I gained 55lbs w/ #3 and loved every second of it! LOL I ate very well and delivered a nice healthy 9+lb baby!

I gained about 45lbs w/ #4 and was better about it. I was working FT until 36wks and PT until birth.

I gained just over 30lbs with #5. Partly because I hadn't lost all the weight from #4 and went out of my way to eat better and not give in to every craving at every hour! LOL I made a point to eat less ice cream and more salads. I loved pasta though... LOL I also didn't have to be pregnant through every freakin' holiday like my last 2. I only had to suffer through candy cravings at Halloween and did pretty good at Thanksgiving since I knew I'd be delivering the next day. LOL With my last 2 I had Christmas and Valentine's Day candy and treats at work! LOL

Re: How much weight did you gain?

I gained 66 lbs with DS and within a year and a half had lost all of that plus 20 lbs.

With the current pregnancy I have gained 40 lbs so far (at 32 weeks) and expect to gain at least another 8 to 10 lbs.

At least I know that I can lose the weight afterward! (South Beach diet worked for me)

Re: How much weight did you gain?

With my first I gained 60 lbs. And at 5'1" that is not pretty. Then with my second I gained 48lbs. Better but not great. And with my third I gained 35lbs. Much better. But it took me longer to lose my weight with the last two.
