I'm 23 weeks and have gained 15 pounds, which I am fine with. the only thing that scares me is that in my last two pregnancies I didn't gain a thing until I was about six months along and then gained about 30 in three months. I seriously don't want to put on another thirty in the next three months.

15 pounds at 22 weeks. I looked at the scale and said, NO!, and my OB looked at the scale and said, YES! Apparently, she thought I was a little behind last visit. It's tough, though, to be the sort of person who has spent their entire post-puberty life watching their weight and trying to be healthy and seeing that scale go up and up.... but if it means tadpole is happy and healthy, then it's always a good thing.

Pre TTC: 126
TTC/Conception: 136
22 weeks: 151

Sounds familiar. I just postponed my midwife appointment until next week, but I got on the scale and I guess it was time for my big weight gain. I'm now up 18 pounds! AGGGHHH!!

About 15 pounds, but I lost some weight at first, so more like 7-10 total.

Jam 7, Peanut Butter 5, and Bread 2.

Gained 5 lbs from the pre- pregnancy weight. I lost some to begin with so total is 7 gained at 25 weeks! Good job they said! Last time I didn't gain until 30 weeks so I'm impressed!

I'm trying not to think about it. We don't own a scale. I just get weighed when the midwives come over.

At 21 week appointment (I'm now 25 weeks), I was 149. 9 pounds above pre-pregnancy weight. I feel like I've gained at least 5 pounds since my last weigh in.

same here. I try to eat right and not stress over it. There are too many other things to worry about.

At my appt today I checked. ( forgot last time) and I have gained 6 lbs overall, but I was pretty overweight to begin with so it has balanced out.

Ugh. Bit of a weight-related rant here.

I feel good. I think I look good. But there are all these tiny little ambushes waiting that really irritate me.

Like my mom's freaky neighbor saying, "Wow, your face really changed!" : What on earth does that mean? Is that a compliment, or are you saying my face got fat? If I hadn't been handed a grilled cheese 5 seconds before she said it, I probably would have just muttered "Wow, you're socially inept!"

Or my husband, who is naturally thin (5'8'', 150 pounds) and now wants to lose 10 pounds and get a six pack. Yes, please tell me about how much weight you lost this week, darling. Talk about it for an hour. That's just fascinating.

Some days, I just want to lay in state and have servants bring me plates and plates of croissants and chocolate bunnies and Krispy Kreme donuts. Instead, I drag my weary carcass to work and eat organic spaghetti-o's at my desk while checking email and getting pounded in the navel by Ninja Baby.

Why does our society not find pregnant women attractive, dangit??
