I was wrong I had my 30 week appointment today and I guess I have only gained 15 pounds. WOOT!

I'm 30 weeks and am down 10 lbs.

I had really bad morning sickness until about 24weeks, but was maintaining my weight. Then at 27 weeks I found out I have GD, and went on the GD diet. I've lost 10 lbs in 3 weeks.

I know the only way I was maintaining my weight when I was sick was with all of the carbs/ sugar I was eating. Now, without them, even though I'm never hungry, the weight is just falling off.

My ob doesn't seem too concerned at this point. My next appointment is Friday, so I guess I'll see. I'm freaking out a little.

I'm between 27 & 28 weeks and have gained about 20 lbs. And I'm getting hungrier all the time!

I'm 30 weeks tomorrow, and I've gained 7 or 8 pounds. I started out 50-ish pounds overweight, though, so it's all good.

My midwives don't care to monitor weight gain, and my bathroom scale is somewhere still in transit between Florida and BC, so I don't have any good idea about how much I weight these days. But my guess is I've gained somewhere between 15-25 pounds at week 28.

As hungry as I am lately, though, my guess is that I'll be starting to gain faster now. I almost literally never feel full. I often feel 'full enough' or 'no longer starving' but offer me something delicious 20 minutes later, and I'll probably still be up for it.

Out of curiosity I'm looking forward to finally unpacking my own scale since that is the only constant in this move, it's been packed since 18w. It seems like from what I can average from the various other scales I have seen that I'm still on track at about a pound per week overall. At 27w now I'm thinking I'm about 25 pound up, with the twins 1:1 is my general target, so I feel pretty good

I'm 29 weeks, and I've gained 0 pounds. I'm eating really well and exercising and so far, nothing. The OB says that I should expect to gain starting now since the baby will be packing on the weight from now on. I'm hoping to gain less than 10 pounds total, since I started out overweight.

28 weeks and stood on the scale this morning...up 9 pounds. 2 weeks ago I was only up 4-5 pounds, so agreeing with previous post, baby is starting to put weight on. This is the time I gained with DS and total with him I gained 12 pounds. I am shooting for under 20 with this one.

28 weeks. i don't know my actual pre-preg weight, my guess is between 225-228. i was 238 yesterday but went up to 242 previously. i'm gaining less than i did with my first pg but i also started off heavier. last time though, i went pre-eclamptic so i ended up gaining a ton of water weight after 35 weeks.. i'm hoping to avoid that this time around!

27 weeks and between 20 and 25 lbs up. I have a massive appetite and I just plump up while pregnant. I think I look great, and I feel great!

Just got weighed. I'm up 24lbs now. And I'll be 24 weeks tomorrow.

30 weeks and 22 lbs. It's my second. I'm not worried about gaining too much...I'm just enjoying.
post #34 of 38
29 weeks tomorrow and I'm up 9-10 pounds over pre pregnancy.
post #35 of 38
am I the only one who has no idea what I've gained? my midwives don't make me weigh myself and we don't have a scale. I thought about pulling out the Wii fit, but don't want to see my little person balloon out and for it to holler at me about being obese, lol. There doesn't seem to be a pregnancy setting on there

Mine yelled at me when I got it while I was trying to lose all my pregnancy weight. That, of course, goes away a lot quicker than regular fat, especially when you're breastfeeding, and it seemed to think I was doing something unhealthy and losing too fast. Nothing like angering the machine.

30 weeks, 30 pounds.....

(Had a good giggle out of the cranky wii posts... had to share with DH. )

I'm about 30 weeks and up 30 pounds from pp weight of 135. Was a gradual gain in the beginning then I gained 10 pounds in the last month. I've had major lifestyle changes during my pregnancy though. Finished full-time college(and college lifestyle) AND a full-time management job, married and moved during my first trimester, internship in an office during my 2nd tri, then unemployed and bored since then. :P

Terrible diet before I was pg, then I was eating well for a while then slipped into easy/lazy food, but I'm recognizing my slip and back to making my own food so things should be back on track now. Hoping not to gain more than 10 more in my last 10-12 weeks.

27 weeks and up roughly 10-15 pounds, but I don't check unless I have an appointment. I gained 25 with my last pregnancy, I bet it will be closer to 30 with this one.
