How is everyone doing on the weight gain? I noticed a few mamas mentioning having some trouble gaining, and thought maybe we could talk more about that. I haven't been gaining much, although my Midwives aren't worried just keeping an eye on it. However, too much and not enough weight gain has been linked to preterm labor, which I've been having issue with (I'm on bed rest), so I want to be careful about gaining enough that I'm not irritating the situation! I gained over 60lbs with each of my other two pregnancies (11 and 8.5 years ago), so it seems so odd that I'm the opposite this time. Hopefully it'll pick up.
I'm 24w1d and have gained 11lbs! Which is great because when I was in last time at 21w (ish) I had only gained 5 lbs! So I'm real glad it's picking up, and I'm finally feeling that pregnancy hunger, which is especially exciting as I struggled with severe nausea for the first 16 weeks, it's great to WANT to eat now! (Why can't this pregnancy be simple?)
I really believe that if you listen to your body and make good, whole food choices you will gain what you need to, but I've gotten to a place where I'm wavering in that opinion, and maybe that opinion of my body in general. It's just not working right this time. :(
How about everyone else? Gaining like you want to?
