I gained zero until week 17, and now I'm gaining about a pound per week, or maybe just a bit over. I'm up about 7-8 pounds at week 23/24. Started out at 145, and hoping not to gain more than 25, since I live in Israel, and here they advise a weight gain of 15-25 pounds, vs. the American advisory of 25-35 pounds.

Wow, that's so interesting, because for me I really believe that the baby and all the other parts are growing at their own rate.

started out 5'5" 128#, now 25 weeks, first trimester gained (almost on the button) 0.5 lb/wk, 2nd trimester gaining 1lb/wk, although my weight can fluctuate several pounds within a day.

First trimester ate mostly greasy foods , lots of olive oil, cheeses, whole milk dairy products because that's just what I felt like eating.

Second trimester haven't liked grease on the tongue. Also exercising really regularly. : I'm just hoping that after the pregnancy, my regular metabolism returns.

I've gained 32lbs. in 24w! I am a plus size mama to begin with! I'm eating the same amount of calories per day that I did before I got pregnant (I keep track a few days a week on fitday.com) I'm just trying not to stress about it. :

I have gained 27lbs : I gained 40 with my first, 30 with my second and didn't weigh at all during my third...this time I weighed and wished I didn't.

With every pregnancy I was at or below my prepregnancy weight within a year but I had to work really really hard with the last one...I am not looking forward to it...

I tend to lose the first 30 right away and then work so hard at the last 10lbs or so...last time I was over weight to begin with and had 35lbs to get off...I will probably be the same this time

Seems like I am holding right now at a 20 lb gain. I started out at 214, now I am 234. It does fluctuate sometimes up to 236, but I keep coming back and hovering at 234. It's been like that for the last 2 or 3 weeks now. I'm hoping I can keep it there for the rest of the pregnancy. I'm not cutting calories or anything, but I am watching what I eat. Staying away from processed stuff like white bread and sugar, etc. And I'm not giving in to my chocolate and ice cream cravings that can strike at anytime :LOL At least not for the time being. I told myself I will be really good and then let myself indulge in a decadent treat at the end of the month.

I found out I was pregnant at 186. I dropped down to 179. At my last appointment I was 200 even. [I like my midwife's scale!] On my home scale, I can be anywhere from 201-205.
So...about 20 pound weight gain going from pre-pregnancy weight? I was 215 when I had Eva, but that was due to PIH/Pre-E. So I'm hoping this time around, I don't get that high, but if I do, I will cry...and complain...but be okay with it, since the baby needs it.

I have gained less weight at this point (about 20 pounds at 27 weeks) than with my son, but I am sticking out further. I've had a couple people ask... when are you due?!?!? Oh well... I'm just hoping that I don't have gestational diabetes again. I had it with my son, so I ended up with a 30 pound total weight gain, but I didn't gain any weight during my third trimester due to the strick diet.

Well, I don't have to. But I am trying to anyhow as whether I am pregnant or not, I do gain weight if I overdo the carbs. I also love ice cream!

Just eat loads of protien and veggies. For breakfast have eggs, steak, etc. Maybe veggie omellettes. Stay away from cereal, icecream, and even try not to eat more than maybe 1 serving of fruit a day. Mostly stay away from processed carb foods...the white breads, cookies, tortillas, ....also stay away from soda, candy, etc. And make sure to get enough good fats ... not the icky transfats. Your baby needs healthy fats to grow, and good fats like coconut oil, real butter, lard, etc stabilize blood sugar incredibly well. A little olive oil is good too, but not a lot. You need saturated fat. Include a good source of fat with every meal and it will slow down the sugar response in your meal. I had borderline GD last time, and this time I did not and I know my healthy diet is a big part of that. I did insist on doing the post-meal glucose screen though because I don't believe the glucola drink is accurate at all. Actually I don't even think the whole GD diagnosis is at all helpful, but that's another story.

Also, exercise! Up until about a month ago I was exercising about an hour 4-5 times week. Now it's down to about 1-2 times a week : It will not only regulate your blood sugar, it sure feels good to get moving...even if for only 20 minutes at a time on the treadmill or doing some prenatal yoga.
