Somewhere between 30-35 lbs, maybe a tiny bit more. I started out somewhere btwn 125-130 (we didn't have a scale at the time). Now I'm jumping btwn 158-162. Surprisingly I'm okay with it. I didn't want to gain over 25 and though I would die when the scale went over 150, but I didn't. Thought I would die when it went over 160, but I didn't. I think it helps that it is somehow ALL belly, I think I may have even somehow lost weight in my legs and butt.

At my last visit, I had gained 8 pounds in two weeks, but now that it's been cooling off and my ankles have re-appeared, I have lost 2 pounds in a week... even though baby feels bigger and so do I.  I swear that those pounds were just pooling in my feet/calves.

I too thought I would die when I saw 186 but I didn't.  And I'm sure I won't die if/when I see 190 and above!  Just bruises the ego a bit!

I've gained 22lbs at 39w 4d. So I'm about 254. I think that's good, I'll stick with it.

I'm up 27 lb at 36 weeks (tomorrow). I wanted to stay at 25lb weight gain, but oh well. Now that it's near the end I'm not stressing about weight gain anymore. :)

 

(btw, I'm super envious of you who lose it all or nearly all in the first few weeks/months! My body seems to like to hold on to it...)

Oh man, I think I've gained 5 pounds in my feet this week.  I refuse to wear any shoes but Chacos now.  If only it would start cooling off here!

My hands swell so much more than my feet!!  I swear I feel like I'm wearing gloves half the time!  It's maddening.  I can't even see the bones in my hands anymore.  :-(  But my feet are fine.  Go fig.

I'm 2 lbs over what I started at....I'm 183 lbs.  I'm good with that.  I'll be 38 weeks tomorrow.  I hope I drop a good 20 lbs in the weeks after this baby is born...that will be the lowest I've weighed in years.

I have no idea what I gained. Last time I stepped on the scale it was over a  40 lb weight gain and that was around the 4th I think. I stepped on today a week pp and am 27 lbs above pre-pg weight. My body likes to hang on to the weight, I gained less last time and it took 12+ months of working at it to lose it. I didn't gain much with my first two and did lose it within 6 months but that is the last time that happened. I will be thrilled if it will go down to 20 lbs above pre-pg somewhat soon and then I'm sure the rest will stay for a while.

I'm not sure exactly how much I weighed when I got pregnant.  I think I was between 105-110.  Now I weigh 145 and will probably get to at least 50 before I deliver this kid.  It's the most weight I have ever gained and it shocks me a little bit.  However, I also feel like I got off kind of lucky.  With my tacky diet lately, I'd deserve it if I gained much more than 40.

I've gained at least 40, but I'm just not keeping track anymore.  My midwife forgot to weigh me at my last appointment (gee darn), and my next appointment is the home visit.  We have a crappy dial scale, and DS likes to play with the dial on it.  You can either do the math, or you can set it back to zero, but I would have to bend over to do that, and it ain't happening ROTFLMAO.gif

Mine is the fancy kind that tells you your body fat percentage.  Ha! It doesn't take pregnancy into account at all, of course, but DH gets mad when his body fat goes above like 9%.  Hah -- at this point mine is 44%!  I think it's hilarious (b/c it's not at all accurate) and mortifying at the same time.  LOL!

I've gained 38 lbs (including the weight I gained back after my loss in the first tri). I am alright with that. I wanted to stay as close to 30 as possible but I will lose this weight. I already have my exercise and weight loss goals planned out. I am ready to start working out again.

So far I'm at 18lbs gained for 36 weeks pregnant. I'm really pleased, even though I'm over 200lbs because last time I gained 46lb. I know it was a lot of water weight because I lost 40lb in the first few weeks. I look like I'll be around 20lb total gain this time, and if I can loose a lot in the first few weeks again then I'll be good for getting to my before any pregnancy weight quickly. I'd really like to try and shed all the additional baby weight this time, especially before getting pregnant again next time.

 

I also can't wait to get back outside during the day. Its been too hot here for months and overheating gives me contractions. But I'll be 37 weeks on Tuesday so I'm heading back outside for a walk every day after that and just maybe this baby will come before I run out of month (I really don't want to still be pregnant in September!)

I never looked at the number throughout my prenatal appointments, but at the hospital, the anesthesiologist needed to know and I looked then. My total gain was 55 lbs which puts this baby at second place for least weight gained haha. I'll look forward to my 6 week appointment to see where I am at!

 

During my surgery, the doctors kept saying I was "all baby" and that the surgery would be faster if I had gained any weight and gave them something to work with. So apparently, everything I gained went straight to my butt and thighs lol.gif moon.gif

I'm at 236 pounds now, which means I've gained 33 pounds in the pregnancy, and I have not gained any weight last week. I am very happy with the weight gain because I gained about 70pounds with DS1 and when we decided to TTC again I was still working on shedding the extra weight. I'm also about 10 pounds lighter than I was with DS1 at this point where I kept getting bigger and bigger as the weeks moved on. After this birth, I will be in a great position to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight soon, and I am already looking forward to wearing my normal clothes again when winter comes around. YAY!

This is funny, and sounds like something I would do. love.gif

My total weight gain for the pregnancy was just under 40 pounds. Considering how swollen I was, that's pretty good I think. I lost about 25 pounds within a week of delivery, so I think a lot of it was water and baby. Now I'm hovering about 10-12 pounds above my pre-pregnancy weight, and my boobs are huge with milk so I'm counting that. winky.gif I feel pretty good about being able to slowly work off the rest.

I think I'm up about 27 lbs, which is how much I gained with my first baby. A couple of weeks ago I had lost 3 lbs in one week when it was really hot. But I've since put it back on...a good thing.
