I've gained like 11 lbs, which I'm thankful for. I think I might gain around 35 like I did last time. Hopefully!

Seriously, don't feel bad. I ballooned out 70 lbs with my 2nd! For a 5'4" woman, that's a lot of extra weight to suddenly have! I really didn't eat too bad back then, but I think it was from when I was on the depo shot, it messed with my body. I got off of it after becoming pregnant and miscarrying and then pregnant with her 8 weeks later.
I've gained 20lbs! With my other kids I know how I ended up gaining 50lbs. Ben? Jerry? remember me?! This time I've been eating so much better, I thought. I was super concerned at first b/c I really didn't want to go there again, but I'm almost over it at this point.
That's what I'm counting on ... since I eat very well 90% of the time, but have always, pregnant or not, eaten when hungry and stopped when I'm not ... and at 22.5weeks ... have gained 32lb. Now .. there's twins in there, but that's still a lot! According to most of the online calculators & charts, I should expect to gain 1.5lb a week from now on ... I'm really hoping that's NOT the case, as I think I'll tip over! I can't even imagine what 60lb of pregnant weight on my 5'4"self would do -- screw up my center of gravity by a lot, at the very least!
I've gained 50 pounds each of my previous pregnancies, and am having a really hard time gaining now. I've gained maybe 15 lbs, but my body definitely looks crazy pregnant already. It is hard to imagine how crazy I'm going to look in another 21 weeks:/ I have also been active on the parenting multiples forum-you should check it out:)
Here I am at about 22 weeks and 2 days. Where is this baby?! haha, I can feel him constantly I know he's in there, but he's not really showing too much yet, as this is only slightly bigger than my normal, overweight belly. I've gained about 5 pounds as of this week- started at 175, so I'm hoping to not gain too much anyway. Feeling great, but am amazed at how much bigger my fellow pregnant friends are at this stage than I am. My sister in law has a similar frame to myself, and she wore her baby the same. Didn't get really big til the very end. Perhaps I'll be the same!
