: I went in today for my weekly visit and I gained 5lbs in 1 week! I am not even eating junk either. Man that brings me up to 30lbs total for this pregnancy with up to 3 weeks left before my c-section.

Man that is just depressing to see those numbers. I will be so glad when I can get back into the gym that is for sure!!

That happened to me the appointment before last. I'm at 30 pounds right now too, overweight to begin with! My doctor thinks it's a good gain for me, because I make big babies anyway. She wasn't worried about it. I lost a lot quickly the last time, I think a lot of it was water. I gained about 45 with the last one.

It's a little disconcerting seeing those numbers go up so fast though... ugh!

Me too, me too... 30 lbs gained, 5 in the last week, and I'm NOT happy about it! I can't believe I have 4 weeks left....I feel so big already, even though I've gained way less this time than I did the first two times.

I'm ready to have this baby NOW! *stamps foot*

Eh, in my last pregnancy, I gained 8lbs in a week. I gained a total of 50lbs that pregnancy. I lost all of it by the time dd was 9 months old, all through nursing. This pregnancy, I've gained 40lbs and have 6wks left. No biggie.

Mama of three.

Keep in mind that when you gain that much in a short period of time it is probably mostly water weight
