I guess I just want a vantage point to see if where I'm at is average.
I am at week 32 and have gained 30 lbs....
Anyone else willing to update?
Trying to build up my house, not tear it down . Got 3 wonderful kids , blessed with a wonderful husband and have the privilege of staying home full time to enjoy it all!
I was "obese" to start with too. I use it in " " b/c the BMI states I am obese, most people would just look at me and think over weight, tall, and big boned.
I tend to put on a lot of weight in pregnancy and hold on to it for a while... Pregnancy #4 hasn't changed that at all, the constant battle.
By the way, anybody else done the ring-on-a-chain thing to see what they are having? It was righ tthe first time for me, just wondering if anyone else got the right answer from the circle for a girl, or back-and-forth for a boy.
So while I'm 4 pounds over my "offical" starting weight, I'd guess I've really gained more like 20-25 pounds overall once you factor in regaining what I initally lost.
I'm also obese though so I wasn't terribly concerned about the weight loss and I'm not super concerned now about how much I've gained. I'm measuring right on target, the baby is active, & has a great heart beat. My midwives are very happy with my progress & so am I!

31.5 weeks and 52 lbs: I'm not eating like crazy, in general I'm eating pretty well I think, although I'm not exercising or moving around a whole lot, apart from playing with and chasing DS... that's part of it. *sigh* I'm gonna top the 60lbs I gained with DS. Midwives aren't concerned, but I'm not happy.
I feel better now! I'm 30 wks (measuring 32), and I'm pretty sure I've gained about 50 lbs so far. (I quit looking at the scale when it hit 185, which was 40 lbs. A month ago.)
I exercised a lot, until I found out I was preg., and then I completely quit. (Dumb, I know.) Frankly, I started eating a lot crappier, too. (What the hell? I was gonna get fat anyway .) At any rate, the doc. hasn't said a whole lot. But I know I'm gonna be super pissed at myself when I realize in Feb. just how much I have to lose!
I'm across the lake from you in Plattsburgh!
We're actually relocating to Burlington sometime next year (hopefully). DH grads from SUNY P-burgh in a couple weeks then it's onto looking for jobs and/or getting into grad school at UVM so we can start house hunting.
