just curious....how much weight have you gained? - Page 2

post #21 of 38
At my 25 week appt, I'd gained about a total of 25 pounds.

I am 26 weeks and have gained 16 lbs so far

I think I've gained more than 10 but less than 15. I'm not sure. All I know is I hate it, my husband loves it... He likes the curves so that's nice, helps me accept the weight a little easier.

I can't believe how little some of you have gained! Did you all lose alot with morning sickness?

I lost about 5 lbs. in the first trimester, not from throwing up, but just from not eating due to nausea. At 24 weeks, I had gained 18 lbs. I'm now at 28 weeks, so I know I weigh more. The funny thing about me is all the weight seems to be going to my belly. Alot of people say that they don't notice I'm pregnant until they see me from the side. Then when I tell them when I'm due, they act shocked, like I should be having it any day now, because my belly is so big. I can't even imagine what it will look like in another 3 months!! I'm short, so I think my belly looks bigger than it really is. I'm measuring at a normal size.

I guess I've gained 3 pounds? I'm 25 weeks. I can't see that it makes much of a difference as long as we're eating when hungry.
I started at 140, went down to 130 during morning sickness, then almost immediately went back up to 140 after it ended and I started eating again. Then I gradually got up to 144, got the stomach flu and lost a pound, and I've been at 143 for two weeks. In any case, my weight has certainly rearranged--I'm all boobs and belly!

As of my 28 week appt today, I'm up 17 lbs. At 24 weeks, it was only 9.5 lbs. I ate a ton of junk this weekend and was wearing heavy clothes, so I suspect it would have been more like 15 if I'd been weighed a few days ago.

Last pregnancy, I'd gained 23 lbs by 28 weeks and I started 5 lbs heavier, so I'm more than 10 lbs lighter than I was before. I gained a total of 35 lbs last time (I stopped gaining at 36 weeks, then went 2 1/2 weeks overdue). So weeks 20-32 are the huge gainers for me. If I can average a pound a week for that period, I'll be excited. I think I'm on track for 25-30 lbs gained.

I am 25 weeks and have gained 20 lbs so far. I gained 30 total with my DD, so I am gaining more this time. It doesn't help that all I eat is crap lately because I am too tired to buy or make healthy meals. *sigh* And of course I am too lazy to excersize now.... I need to snap out of this energy funk.

I'm not so concerned about how much I gained, but how unhealthy I am right now. blah

Hmm. I don't know, exactly. We don't keep a scale in our house, and my last MW appt. was 3 wks. ago. Here's my guess, though...

Between 0-18 weeks I lost, then regained, 15 lbs. (thankyouverymuch nausea & diarrhea)
At 22 wks. (last appt.) I'd put on 3 lbs. over my starting weight.
I'd guess that now (at 25 wks.) I've put on another 5 or so lbs. (Ben & Jerry's to the rescue. ) So I'm probably 8-10 lbs. over my starting weight.

Sooo...my net gain is pretty pathetic, but I think my progress (since I stopped losing and started gaining) is worth a pat on the back. Good job, self!

Will find out for sure in a few days, at my next MW appt.!

I'm at 28 weeks and I've gained 20 lbs so far. I'm sooooooo uncomfortable. You'd think by the third time I'd remember how miserable the last months are....but no. I don't remember being this uncomfortable with my other two, not even the first one who I gained 80 &^$%# lbs with. I'm measuring 32 wks maybe that is why my belly feels so hard, I can't breath, sleep, or eat.

I'm blessed to be pregnant. I will just be VERY happy when this part is done and she's in my arms.

Hey there! I live in Seattle and am due at the beginning of March. I have gained 20 pounds and my doc doesn't have anything to say about it. So hang in there, and don't feel fat! Pregnancy is a beautiful thing and only comes a few times in a woman's life. As women we should really embrace the beauty of it (for once in our lives) and not feel fat!

Hear, hear, Kateniki! I am proud of my big belly. Even when I have trouble breathing...

16 pounds here - at 29 weeks... But I started above my ideal weight, so I'm trying to keep one eye on scale while feeding my body everything it needs for the babe...

Hah! The joke is on me! I just found out Wednesday that I'm actually having TWINS!!! It wasn't just me, my belly IS big! They didn't weigh me at that last appointment, though, so I don't know how much I weigh right now.

Ay 26 weeks, I am down about four pounds. I did this last pg and at the end, I think I had gained only 6-8 pounds overall. I am a good60 pounds overweight to begin with, so it's not a big deal. I am not trying to lose - I think it's just because I am eating better and am losing the weight I gained from unhealthy eating habits prior to being pg.

Finally....I've been gaining an average of 10 lbs per month for the last couple of months. Had an appt.yesterday, and I only gained 6 this month! Woohoo!!! Somehow my body used those cookie calories up. Just think how much less I would have gained if I hadn't eaten all that sugar!

Had my midwife appt. today, and it looks like I guessed right: I'm up 9 pounds from my starting weight. Gained 6 lbs. in the past 4 weeks. So if I keep it up, I should gain enough by 38 weeks. Yay!
post #38 of 38
I had gained about 20 in the first 27 weeks, but I notice that with 12 weeks to go and not really changing anything, its really starting to pick up....I think I gained almost 2 pounds just since my appointment last Thursday. If it continues I should be right on target.

Please, please let it not be a 10 pound baby!
