Re: How much weight did you gain?

I gained 47 pounds even though Bram was only 6lbs 5oz. I'm 5 foot 10 1/2 though so I carried it well if I *do* say so myself. LOL

My DH's best friend from high school was pg at the same time as me and she gained about the same amount even though she's like a foot shorter than me but she was a cute little round thing!

I chose "other" because I actually lose until I developed preeclampsia. I went for 227 pre-pg to 213. When I got pre-e, I was 241 day of delivery from being so swollen and such.

Re: How much weight did you gain?

I gained about 52lbs, but I was about 10lbs underweight (107) to begin with. So at 11 months I'm still not back to my pre-pregnancy weight. At first it came off fast, then I got stuck at 130, but cottage cheese and lean cuisine took care of that and knocked me down to 118.

Re: How much weight did you gain?

I voted other, because I lost and then gained. With my first, I gained 41 lbs from my starting weight, but I'd lost 13..so technically, I gained 54. Most of it was water weight because I lost it all by 2 weeks post partum without diet or exercise.

Same story goes for #2. I was up 24 lbs from starting weight, but technically gained 37. Took me 5 weeks to get back to pre-pg weight.

Re: How much weight did you gain?

I gained 18 lbs with my dd (she weighed 7'13"), I gained 14 lbs with my DS (he weighed 8'6").

My OB has always told me that as long as I am eating well and the baby is growing at the right rate, I don't "need" to gain anything, especially since I am average weight. I was also very sick at the beginning of both pregnancies, so that kept me from gaining early on.

Re: How much weight did you gain?

The day I delivered my ds, I weighed *exactly* my pre-pregnancy weight. But what happened was for the first 4 months, I *lost* weight - to the tune of 17 lbs - I had morning sickness and horrible food aversions. There was about a month where just about the only things I could keep down were grapefruit and cottage cheese.

By the end of the 4th or 5th month, they started threatning to treat me as a high risk pg (no midwife, no water birth) if I didn't start gaining weight, and my morning sickness started to let up, and so I ate everything I could, but just held steady until finally at the end of my 6th month I put on two pounds, and everyone cheered (the nurse, the midwife, dh, and even me).

During the last 3 months, I gained back the 17 lbs that I had lost early in the pg. DS was 8 lbs 10 oz 3 weeks early, so he didn't suffer any ill effects size wise, that's for sure. I left the hospital about 15 lbs lighter than when I got pg.

Re: How much weight did you gain?

I gained almost 50lbs. I was doing good w/weight gain up until the last month and a half. At that point, I decided I did'nt care what I ate etc... So, I managed to pack on a decent amount at the very end.
