I agree with this. I wondered if only the people who hadn't gained much (or who had two babies in there to justify the gain
) would reply. Either I'm right, or most of you haven't gained much! As for me, I am almost 23 weeks, and have gained about 22 pounds. Yep, a pound for every week. I started at a higher weight than I've ever been, but I wouldn't consider myself really heavy. My midwife checked for two babies last week at our appointment, and we're pretty sure we only heard one heartbeat/ felt one baby. My previous 2 pregnancies I gained about 30 to 32 pounds each time, losing most of the weight in between. This time, I don't know, I just put on more weight more quickly. I'm letting my body do what it needs to do, grow a wee babe while also nursing it's two older siblings, and I'm trying to enjoy my belly and my pregnant body.
