31 weeks and I have gained 30lbs! Holy crap, and I am only 5'2". I though I would gain the typical 25-35lbs total during this pregnancy, but apparently I am in store for a bit more than that. It scares me that only around 15lbs of this will go away after my baby is born... then I will have an additional 30lbs or so to lose on my own... Oh my good lord almighty... I feel SO huge!

31 weeks today, and I'm up to a total of 13 pounds. I was negative until about 20 weeks. If things keep on track, hopefully I'll stay around a total of 25 pounds, which is a good place to be for starting overweight. I've never gained this slowly before, so it's new to me! 4 of those pounds were in just the last 3 weeks, however! Need to start controlling my ice cream cravings right about now. ;)
24 lb at 29 weeks. Yikes. Last time I was right on target all the way through and ended up gaining 29 lb total. 14 lb came off at birth and it took me a *year* to lose the remaining 15 (granted I wasn't trying really). This time I am hovering at the upper edge of the max recommended weight gain. (I started both pregnancies at a healthy weight - BMI 21.8 for DD and 21.4 for this baby.)
Honestly my biggest motivation to keep it down is I really do not want to deal with delivering a big baby - DD was just under 7 lb and that was hard enough, thank you.
