how much weight have you gained?

I don't care how much you weigh, so don't feel like you have to share that if you don't want. I'm just curious if anyone is having the same problem as me. I am 18 weeks as of yesterday and have only gained 2lbs. At my second visit I had lost 2lbs and at my vist Monday had gained 4lbs leaving me at a 2lb total overall. I know with my last pregnancy I'd gained at least 10lbs by now. My doctor didn't seem concerned, but I am feeling kind of nervous.

Any thoughts?

I am 31 weeks and have mostly been losing weight. I am gaining again now and I am currently 4lbs less than my pre-pregnancy weight.

Don't worry at all! Especially if you were overweight to begin with.

Re: how much weight have you gained?

i guess that's why i'm worried. i wasn't terribly overweight to begin with (maybe 5-10lbs). but i suppose if i'm eating healthful and staying hydrated i may not be able to control what my body does.

You are probably eating better now too. I cut out soda when I first got pregnant, and that is alot of weight.

Haven't gained any.. I always lose weight when I'm pregnant so it's no big deal to me. I'm not quite sure this time since I'm not keeping up but with my previous pregnancies I lost 40lbs, 18lbs and 24lbs.

Re: how much weight have you gained?

I'm 22 weeks pregnant and am only 3 lbs over my starting weight. Same thing happened last pregnancy. I lost weight during the first trimester but then caught up and gained 30 lbs over all. I was nervous about not gaining enough last pregnancy, but this 2nd time around, I know it's probably just the norm for my body. I know I'm eating healthy and as much as I can.

I am about 112 lbs normally. I gained 25# w/ #1 and almost 40#! with #2 almost all of it in trimesters 2&3. I lost all of it w/in 2 months pp w/ both.

That is crazy that you can lose during pg! Do you get really sick??

Re: how much weight have you gained?

i worked with a girl who weighed about 150 before getting preg. and she didn't gain any weight. then after the baby came she just lost like 20lbs. i was like good gracious! to be instantly skinny and get a new baby, what a combo!
