33 wks. + 6 days = almost 31 pounds

But...I'm a bit concerned...I was gaining about a pound a week, and now I've stopped gaining weight, and actually lost a bit (1 to 2 pounds) the last couple of days. Does anyone know whether this is normal???

Saw my midwife this morning. Finally had some weight gain -- 4 lb in the past 2 wks. I'm up 10 total so far (after gaining back what I lost in the 1st trimester).

She also said she's about 90% sure the baby is head down now based on where she's finding the heartbeat.

34 weeks = 34 pounds! Oh, boy! Last time I gained over 65, but that was with a ton of water weight, which still could hit me! I'm gaining fast on that 200 lb. mark, though, since I wasn't slight to begin with! After 200 lbs, I'm pretty sure I'll just ask them not to tell me!

Uh huh...this is me. At least once a month I've been baking and eating a whole cake/dozen cookies/loaf of bread in a weekend!
And...my baby does not weight 8 lbs so I think I'm just growing ME.

Yes, this is normal....I was told that it is common to stop gaining/even lose a few pounds in the last weeks.

34.5 weeks and I have gained 32 lbs. It feels right even though it sounds like a lot given the fact that I am only 5'3".

I've gained one more pound (for a total of 28). In the past month I think I only gained 2-3 pounds, but my stomach has gotten much bigger!
