I'm at 12-14 lbs weight gain (depending on the day) at 25 weeks. It's so strange though because some days I feel huge and other days not so much.
Towards the end of the day I definitely feel bigger even though I really haven't had much swelling.

It's official, I've grown out of half of my maternity work wardrobe. I'm wearing a button down top today that I'm pretty sure I'll hulk out of if I bend over to pick anything up or stretch too hard. Must remember: small movements only.

Ha I hear you both! I am having a harder time bending over and not grunting. I also today feel super bloated but yesterday I felt just fine. I'm up a total of 26 according to scale.

I've been doing the grunting thing lately!  Man, picking up toys is lousy when pregnant.  I remember last time around about this time we had this big tree seed/seedling study going on and I had to find each seed and bend over to check it or plant....I felt like my head was going to explode and kept getting nosebleeds.  What a pain!

Erm, cellulite? just me?  cheese cake cravings? just me, again?....lol.... yeah nosebleeds and bending over def. suck. I've been getting lots of the former and try not to do the latter.  It's like I have an alien body and I'm forced to wear 2 snow suits ALL> THE> TIME> now. ;-( I'm hot, sweaty, can't cross my legs comfortably, can only bend over if I grunt (SO attractive!) and just today realized that my THIRD trimester is ONLY 2 weeks away!!!!!!!! This also means I'm this big and this uncomfortable almost 4 months before the big finally! Jeebus, I need a pool, part of me hopes I'm fluffy enough to float.

At 27 weeks I'm up 27lbs.  Looks like I'm in it for the 40lb gain. 

 

It is so freaky bc I've never gained weight before - I have a norm range with 4 lbs fluctuation that I never deviate from.  I'm not eating any more than usual either but my body is packing it all in my boobs and back side.  I sure hope my normal metabolism returns post-pg... it's either that or I learn to love cellulite.  Eek!

I'm also around 23 pounds at 24 weeks.  I have gained between 37-40 pounds with every pregnancy so I'm assuming I'll do the same with this one.

This is my third pregnancy and I have gained 15 lbs at 25 weeks.  I only gained 20 lbs with my other two pregnancies, but my midwife is really happy that I seem to be gaining more.  It's really impossible to compare though because every woman and baby is built so differently.

Hmmm. My first 24 Weeks I only gained about 5 lbs which was great because I started out overweight by a good margin. I just stepped on the scale and I am up A total of almost 15 pounds now! Yikes! Could I have gained that much in 3 weeks? Is that dangerous? It has been hot and I have been eating a lot of Mexican food, so I am thinking bloat. Also, the belly has majorly popped.... Anyone else Seeing a growth spurt?

Edited to add: as of Thursday, I am down again, now at about 11 lbs gain. I am feeling relieved and aware that I need to avoid restaurant food.

6 pounds up and soon 24weeks.
I have gained over 40 pounds with my last 2 pregnancies.
My MD hopes that I will gain as little as possible. I make huge babies.

Awwww I'm expecting a huge baby too... first was 8.3 and second was 9.3 and at my US last week baby was already measuring 3 lbs and a couple weeks ahead... If I go a week over we may just keep the trend going and this one will be 10.3

Well I have offically hit the can't bend over stage. Not sure what happen but all of a sudden I am uncomfortable. I am 26 weeks and I feel like a beached Whale. When I sit I just want to lean back to accommodate my stomach. I also found out at my 24 week appointment that over the previous 3 weeks I had gained over a kg a week so I am trying to be a little bit better about what I am eating. So far I have gained 22 lbs. Hoping to keep it under 40 lbs.

With my first son I started at 120 and went up to 160. He was nearly 10 lb. With my second son I started underweight at 108 and went up to 160. He was born at 11 lb 3 oz. This time I started at about 125 (estimating) and am already up to 151.6 at almost 27 weeks. I know I'll go over 160 this time. It's a bit depressing, as I'm not very tall to distribute the weight. Clothes that fit at this point the last 2 pregnancies don't fit me. I'm finding I have to buy the next size up. Anyhow, I'm hoping for a smallish (for me) 9 lb baby, but I'm already measuring ahead. I measured 28 weeks at 26 weeks 6 days. I'm trying not to stress even though I feel like a beached whale.

I usually gain about 40 lbs but last time I gained about twice that! I think it was because I had switched to a gluten-free diet which pretty much took away almost all of my morning sickness, which had previously been nearly 24-hour x 9 month sickness. I got pregnant with this one with about the same spacing as all the others, so I had not gotten rid of that extra 40 yet. I was a little afraid I was going to do another 80lb. gain, but so far I am up about 30 at just under 30 weeks.

I started this pregnancy at 125 and was at 158.5 at 27 w 5 d- oh and I measured 32 weeks! I have never measured this far ahead with any of my others- but this is my first boy and I'm thinking he's just going to be bigger than my girls- seriously hoping that he's not over 9 pounds though!

Still haven't gained weight here. I'm still down a pound or two from starting weight (which was down 10lbs from where I'd been stuck at for a year or so). But I'm measuring ahead and expecting a 9-10lb baby. If I get one that's smaller then cool but I'm not expecting it

I'm down 2 pounds from my starting weight, still at 29 weeks. I'm measuring right on target though, so I guess it's all good. My other 3 babies have all been fairly small, too. The biggest was 7#9oz.

Glad to know I'm not the only mama on the lower end. I come from a family of women who "gain in the baby, not in the mama" - so at 30 weeks I've only gained 7lbs. He's measuring great though and is VERY active so I have no doubts about his well being. Eating tons of protein, healthy fats, good carbs, and taking all the "Crunchy" supplements (cod liver oil, red raspberry leaf, whole food prenatals, probiotics, etc.). But MAN! When he's ready to grow - he takes control of my body. In the past week I've been exhausted, sleeping something like 12 hours a day and eating constantly the rest of the day. Started to get worried and then realized he was kicking harder AND my rib cage finally expanded. Hello needing to buy bras AGAIN. :/

I'm now up to 30 pounds over normal weight at 29 weeks. I'm trying to cut back a little on the fats and sugars but I am also having swollen feet so I'm trying not to eat too much salt. I am finding it difficult to feel satisfied between breakfast and lunch so I'm probably snacking more than usual.
