I'm 30 weeks and I think I've gained about 23lbs, haven't weighed since Thanksgiving though...

29 weeks, 31 pounds. This is good for me, because I tend to gain a lot of weight when pregnant (first time over 60, second time about 50). I am shooting for 40 this time.

I have definitely put on lots of extra padding in the thighs and butt, I am usually small there but not right now. My usually small bosom has expanded amply as well.

My waist has grown by 11 inches.

ETA: I started out at about 105, which is my normal weight, and with my past pregnancies it took me about a year to get back to my prepregnancy weight. I'd like to bounce back a little more quickly this time!

Me. Too!!!!!

I am signing up for a gym membership and maybe even a couple of sessions with a personal trainer (which would be a splurge for us) to get me on track again, asap-- as soon as I am feeling up to it postpartum-- probably 4-8 weeks out or so, we'll see. I am SO excited about this. I am usually quite active, but during pregnancy I am so low energy, I get out of breath easily, and now with this hip pain that comes and goes, it's really not happening.

30 weeks along...about 15 pounds. Last pregnancy I was up 20 to 25 pounds at this point. I contribute it to eating a mostly raw, high-vibrational, vegan diet...my last pregnancy I ate white meat, fish, dairy, and lots of carbs that didn't leave me feeling full for very long. Olive oil, hemp seeds, avocado, spinach, pumpkin seeds, apple cider vinegar, tofu, carrots, lots of fruit and sprouted breads are my main sources of energy this time around.

Quantummama: So interested to hear you are eating mostly raw. I am mostly vegan with a bit of dairy thrown in now. I try to eat as much raw as I can though it's no where near as close to high raw as I was was once upon a time. Thanks for reminding me to pick up some manna bread when I go shopping - I forgot that I was loving that.

Saw my midwife yesterday and I'm 141 pounds at 30 weeks, so I've gained about 20 lbs.

At the same point with my last one I was 137 lbs so it's pretty close.

I eat sensibly and I'm not worried about weight gain... I'm hoping for a bigger baby this time after two five-pounders.

I have gained about 20 pounds so far. (I am 31 weeks) It's more than I would like, but I eat a very healthy diet. I am just getting to my starting weight with my last baby - because I lost alot of weight in between. So, not too bad. I have extra padding around my bottom and hips too. I am usually downright bony in that area! I don't like it at all!

28w3d, had an appt this morning and weighed in just under 150 lbs. I started at just under 125, so right around 25 lbs so far. I'm a little depressed... first pregnancy and this is the most I've weighed in my whole life. I know it's worth it and why I have to gain this weight, but it's still a little shocking.

The midwife's scale is right. My scale at home shows I've gained the same amount. *blush*

Had my 30 week appointment today and I lost half a kilogram, so I've now gained a net total of 7.7 pounds.

I'm at 29 weeks and have gained 26 pounds.
post #58 of 81
I am 31 weeks and I have gained 29 lbs...I was a bit underweight to begin with so this is a good gain for me!

I'm at 29 weeks and have gained 18-19 lbs. so far. I guess that's right in range, but probably a little on the low side. I'm not really sure... I've been on bed rest so it's possible that the loss of muscle mass has kept my weight low even though I'm still gaining.

7 lbs as of last appt at end of Oct. and 13 or so more since then. my midwife appt was cancled so i need to reschedule it. I can only imagine what she will say about such a huge gain.
