I had gained 20 lbs by 29 weeks last time (I think I ended the pregnancy at around 37) and this time I have gained 12 and a half. I am measuring just about on target, but I don't understand! My midwife doesn't seem to be concerned, other than saying I will probably have a smaller baby this time, but it not especially difficult for me to gain weight, and I have been indulging in things like chocolate crossaints (!) from time to time, not to mention my fair share of cookies, ice cream.... though, that said, I did start this pregnancy 10 lbs heavier... could the fat have been absorbed into belly and baby? Anyone else not gaining much still?
