How much weight have you gained? - Page 5

post #81 of 119

I went from 147lbs and 12 weeks, to 163lbs at 22 weeks, to 169lbs at 26 weeks.

27 weeks. Started at 125 and now at 145. Didn't think I'd gain is so fast:) I practice yoga daily and eat very healthfully. I think I look AWESOME and I love my body so 20 lbs thus far seems good to me!

I had gained about 20 at my last appointment and am guessing I'm up a few more since then.  It's about on par with my gain by this point last time, though my gain has been much more spread out this time.  (Last time I had hyperemesis until ~20 weeks and didn't start gaining until about 22 weeks.  Then I gained 55 lbs between then and 41.5 weeks, oy.)  I'm really hoping to not gain as much as I did last time and am a little dismayed that I've still managed to gain this much already despite getting a lot of exercise daily and eating healthily.

Up 14 lbs at 25 weeks. Seem to be gaining slow and steady :)

post #85 of 119

Almost 28 weeks. Checked my weight a few days ago & I had gone down 4lbs, for a total gain of 2lbs. Can't say I'm surprised, I was eating less while I was sick and my weight tends to go up & down during pregnancy. I've never wound up more than 10lbs above my starting weight, so I'm pretty normal for me.

 

Part of me is 'yay, weight loss!' since I gained 30lbs in the couple months right before getting pregnant due to hypothyroid (& I was already way over where I'm comfortable with my weight) and part of me is worrying about it & sure losing weight is either a sign of something bad or a sign I'm going to have an even smaller baby this time around.

My midwife said that she doesn't really care about my weight gain so long as the baby keeps growing steadily, so I'd say don't worry about it.

Up 40 lbs. since the start of my pregnancy and happy about it.  The funny thing is that if you look at me from the back or straight from the front (ignoring the belly and boobs) I look exactly as I did before the pregnancy.  I don't have love handles, hips, or anything... just a huge belly and huge boobs.

post #88 of 119

I'm the same! All 30lbs I've gained are waaay out front :)

post #89 of 119

I've gained 35lbs (31 weeks now) and you can see it went mostly to my legs and rear! LOL! moon.gif

29 weeks here. I am at 139, so still 3lbs below my starting weight now. After having that weight loss a few weeks ago I became very friendly with healthy fats. Lots of guacamole, cream in my coffee, full fat cheese, nuts, etc. My belly is growing quite nicely, I am measuring correct for dates, and my baby feels like a nice size so I am not too worried other than just trying to be sure I give my body enough to really run on.

26lbs at 31 weeks.  Hoping to keep it ~35lbs total this time.

post #92 of 119

For the first time since I got pregnant, I didn't gain any weight all week... I actually went down one pound (I weigh once a week).  I've been taking public transportation and walking more, which probably has a lot to do with it.

post #93 of 119

So far I have gained about 12 pounds. Most of it is in my belly and breasts, but some has definitely settled on my thighs. They look a bit more, er, textured than usual. I expect the number to go up a fair amount when I go to the MW next Tuesday. I've really been enjoying the full fat yogurt! Yum!

26 lbs in 29 weeks and may I say I'm VERY proud of that number, even though it's still considered "high", especially since I'm considered obese.  But dangit, last pregnancy, I gained a total of 80 lbs so the fact that I'm under 30 lbs with this pregnancy, with 3 months to go is a VERY proud moment for me!

post #95 of 119

18 pounds at 29w2d. Hoping to stay under the 30 lb. mark by full term. I think I can do it!

post #96 of 119

I am now just 1 pound shy of my pregnancy starting weight at just short of 34 weeks. I actually was back at my starting weight about 2 weeks ago, but had some major stresses come into my life and lost a bit again. My belly is growing nicely and looks rather round, so the weight must be coming off someplace that I can't see..... maybe I should be afraid to know what might be left of my butt at this time!

 

This pregnancy has been such an interesting journey for me in the weight department. This time around I really have to be careful about carbs and sugars due to having huge problems with hypoglycemia if I take those things in. In my other pregnancies, had I been having a problem putting on weight (which never happened with them!) I would have simply eaten a pint of Ben and Jerrys. So, my nutrition choices this time around are quite solid, but I just have struggled to make up for that big weight loss I had in the beginning thanks to severe morning sickness.

Isn't it interesting how there's so much variation between pregnancies, Erika?  I'm still in awe that three full-term pregnancies can be three totally different experiences.

I've gained between 32-35lbs at 35.5 weeks... I went down a few pounds in the last week, I think (I hope) due to losing some water weight. Overall I think the weight gain has been mostly not-water-weight, but lately I've been noticing swollen ankles if I'm on my feet too long, yuck :(

Swollen ankles can be the pits! I had huge pitting edema with my first 3 kids starting at 28 weeks and this is the first one that I haven't. I am being very thankful for that.... my feet and ankles are much more comfortable this time around (so far, at least). I get a little bit swollen if I drive in my car for a long time, but that is about it for now. I hope your swelling stays to a minimum!
