I'm 20 weeks 4 days and have gained 12 lbs so far, but I was a bit plump to begin with. I had gained about 40lbs during the last two years and was two weeks into an extreme diet when I got pregnant (so much Cosmo's suggestion that I get romantic more often to burn off calories. )

At my 24 week checkup I had gained 9 lbs total... and I look a full 6 months, so I am not sure how this is possible. I am a little worried, especially since with my dd I was sooooo conscious about how and what I ate, and now I am lucky if I get three meals in, much less what kind of food it is! I must admit that I have been eating a lot of sugar.... uggg. And yet, where is it going? Is anyone else not gaining much yet? (I also started out this pregnancy ten lbs heavier than with my dd... don't know if this is a factor...)

Don't feel bad mama!! I am 26 weeks 3 days and I've gained close to 40 lbs already. I've never gained this much this quickly before , oh well maybe I'm going to actually grow a big baby this time!! I must add I am mostly eating healthy foods too and not eating any different really (well except healthier) than my last pregnancy which I only gained 35 lbs in (although I statrted out that preg 25 lbs heavier than I did this one). Some of us just gain a lot to grow our babies, no shame in that!!!

27 weeks and 19 lbs, it's slowing down now, only 2 lbs in the last month. I only gained 19 lbs total with dd, the vast majority of it in the last 3 months.

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.

24 weeks, and have gained maybe 2 to 10 lbs. Don't know, and don't really care. I can see I am growing, but not excessively little or much.

I'm 26 weeks today. But the last time I went to the doctor I was 24 weeks and I'd gained 8 pounds. But to quote my mom "Wow! 8 pounds?! You look like you've gained way more." Heh. Oh well.

People think I have gained more,too. I don't know if that's reassuring or disturbing! I definitely have a belly now.

23 weeks and about 10lbs tops, perhaps less since I'm not sure what I weighed to begin with. I felt strange about it, but OB said I'm measuring perfectly.

28 weeks, ten pounds. I am nursing and exercise a good bit. I eat a lot, but it doesn't help much. The baby is measuring correctly, though.

homebirthing organic mama to three crazy boys very blessed!!

I'm 26 weeks and had gained 9 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight at my appointment last Thursday...

I did a lot of throwing up at first and lost 8 pounds, so from the lowest weight I have gained 17 lbs!

Anyways, now that I am keeping food down and eating healthfully I am not concerned about the exact number of pounds. I'm measuring right on schedule. The body knows what it's doing, right?

I'm 26 weeks tomorrow and have gained about 12 lbs. And I hate how people always comment on my size now, when they have no idea what they're talking about. "You're 6 months pregnant? You're so small!" or "You can't be 6 months pregnant! You're a fatso!". Of course that freaked me out before and I was thinking why is the baby so small/big, why am I so small/big, but apparently I'm measuring right on target and so is baby. ARGH, people suck!

25 weeks, and I'm up 8 pounds. Adding about a pound a week now, which feels right to me.

28 weeks today and as of Thursday I'd gained 12 pounds total according to the doc's scale. Way (WAY!) less than any of my other 3, LOL - I think by this tim with them I was well over 20 pounds gained.
