i figured all the fat was for that! you know, so we both have plenty of food stores for the winter! like the squirrels! because i've packed some on my thighs, my butt, my face cheeks...not to mention the breasts

my body is surely getting ready to breastfeed!

I just bought some yoga pants from old navy online. I read all the reviews to figure out what size to buy and everyone was like, "these pants are huuuuggge in the thighs/hips, so order such and such size." And many of the reviews made the point of saying, "I have pretty big hips/butt/thighs, and I still needed this smaller size." So, I got the smaller size and wouldn't you know it, they are TIGHT on me!! Not skin tight, cutting off my circulation, but still totally hugging my fat

All to say, my bottom parts are packing away the fat for sure!

I gained 10 pounds between today (20 weeks) and 4 weeks ago at 16 weeks. WTH.
The crappy thing is I started this pregnancy with 10# of pregnancy weight from the pregnancy we lost in Feb, so I'm already up 30# total from pre-prepregnancy. Umm gross? I gained 60 with my last 2 so I guess I'm on tracj to gain that again. Le Sigh.

Hm. I really dont know what I weighed before pregnancy because I dont own a scale. So all I know is that between week 11-14 I gained 3 lbs. Weeks 15-19 i gained 5 lbs. Mid wife said one lb a week was acceptable. I feel like i have gotten HUGE this past week (20) and my belly is so round. 10 years ago I gained so much I quit counting.... it was scary, Ive always been a thin person and if my clothes get too tight i exercise more. I THINK i gained about 10 lbs 1st trimester so over all 18lbs so far...
I really wanted to be one of those cute tiny girls who only gain 15-20 lbs but its not in the cards for me.
My goal to get the lbs off post baby is bf and Run my bootie off working towards a marathon April 2012.

I still haven't gained anything and am at a -5 from the weight when I got my BFP.
Baby is growing great and my belly is huge for nearly 20 weeks.

With my twins I gained 40lbs total but most of it was in the last part of pregnancy. I have no clue how much I'll gain this time.

Which ones did you buy? I have an old pair from them and they are so comfy I was considering buying another pair.

My weight gain has slowed in the past four weeks, I'm currently up 17 lbs since getting pregnant, 2 of those in the past 4 weeks.

They had two kinds of stretchy pants, one with a wide leg and one without. I got the one without, more of the traditional yoga pant. I got a medium. Pre-preg I'm a size 8, 135 lbs. Now, I'm 158 lb. And most of that gain is in my butt, thighs and boobs

I think I'm up between 4 and 8 lbs so far (20 weeks). I don't know exactly my weight pre-pregnancy so it's hard to tell. I was overweight before getting pregnant, so I'm hoping not to gain very much. As someone who has struggled with their weight for years, it's been a little scary seeing the scale go up

I've gained 18 lbs at almost 20 weeks. I expect to gain between 40 and 50. I do notice my butt is getting pretty big. And my boobs are huge too. And back fat is starting.

I just noticed this today. It is SO uncomfortable. I hate the way my bra rides up over it, too.

I realize I'll be 150lbs-ish by the end of this pregnancy... But back fat is where I draw the line. It totally weirds me out. I know I'm ridiculous but I can't help it.

I was up 7 lbs at my 17 week appointment. That's consistent with my pattern from my first 3 pregnancies. If this pregnancy stays a similar course, I'll probably end up with a 25ish lb weight gain overall.

I have gained 6 pounds since my first dr. visit at 7 weeks. I always start out underweight for my height so I don't worry about how much I gain. I usually gain 45-50 lbs total but I seem to pack it on in the last month. I think I gained 10 pounds my second to last week with my daughter. So far it's dropped off easily, hoping that holds true with baby number three!

I was 110.2 lbs when I found out I was pregnant 20 weeks later I’m 118.4 which means I only gained 8.2 from start to now!! According to this Pregnancy Weight Gain Estimator by “ BabyCorner”

http://www.thebabycorner.com/tools/p...calculator.php

I’m 0.8 lbs underweight. I need to be putting on 1 lbs per week for the rest of this pregnancy . it’s a great pregnancy weight calculator, I thought I’d share it with all you mama’s

I lost 22 lbs. from week 7 to week 14 (I'm underweight as it is, so it was a bit much). And then I gained 14 oz in one week (!), before I gained 7 oz from week 15 to 19. Next time I weigh in I'll be almost 22 weeks, so we'll see then.

my weight also came off easily with my first 2 pregnancies, and i am a little nervous now that now i am over 30 and it is my third.. and i seem to be getting so big all over so fast this time.
but, i also know that i worried the other two times...
post #39 of 40
