DH said it looks like I've gained a lot! LOL. I actually only just stepped on a scale a few days ago for the first time since i found out I was pg. I gained 20 lbs. Not nearly as bad as I thought. I'm 29 almost 30 weeks so I'm sure I'll add to that significantly!!!

well, I'm 27 weeks, and have gained 25lbs. SUCKS!! I was overweight by 25lbs to begin with....

With my 1st, I gained 65lbs. Was 7 lbs over my prepregnancy weight at my 6 wks pp appt.

WIth my 2nd, I gained 39lbs, but he was a month early. I only lost 20 of that at my pp appt.

With this one, I started a bit heavier and didn't want to gain as much. I swear I don't eat that much!!

So far around 28lbs. I think.
I don't really know how much I weighed before getting pregnant, probably between 120 and 125 (probably closer to 125lbs though). And I now weigh 153.
Kinda sucks cause I too had the 35lbs max like Indigo. But hey. After that pint of ice cream I finished off after supper last night, I can only blame myself, right?

I was also hoping that I'd stay under the 35 lb mark but I don't think that will happen! So far I've gained 21 lbs (and I'm almost 28 weeks). I know that isn't really high, but I tend to pile on most of my weight during my last trimester and I'm really sore and uncomfortable lately so my activity level is going way down... I'm not eating really badly but I'm working full-time at a desk job so nothing I'm eating is getting burned off...

Oh well! I'll just have to work that much harder afterwards to get in shape.

We can all keep in mind that breastfeeding and looking after a little one (or ones if this isn't your first) are great fat burners.

I have been breastfeeding my DS1 for 14 month and I went 10 lbs below my normal weight and now at 30 weeks pregnant, I have gained that 10lbs back plus 15lbs more. Both DH and my doctor can tell the difference in my weight I am actually happy with how I look now, I look nice and healthy, so it's all good.

At my 28 week appointment I had gained about 19-20 lbs. Started out around 125-126. I've wondered how much I will gain in the third trimester.

Me (37) ~ DH (39) ~ DS (3) ~ TTC #2 since 4/10

i am 27 weeks and i just stepped on the scale so i could answer lol i just at dinner , and it says i have gained 11 1/2 lbs!! last time at the mw i had only gained 5 so far

i am not a little person i was 50 lbs over weight to start with so i figure baby just lives off my extra fluff already
I gained 25 with my first and 25 with my second and 17 with my 3rd, i just don't get huge with my babys which is nice cause the weight i do gain never freaking comes off!!

29 weeks and about 15 or 16 pounds I think (haven't weighed in a couple weeks). I think I'll end up between 25 and 30, but who knows!

30 pounds at 30 weeks! i actually weigh less than i ever have at this point in a pregnancy (this is my third), so i'm totally happy with that. i'm 155 now. i usually end up at 170, so if i can keep it even a smidge under that, i'll be so pleased.

I'm 30 weeks and have gained about 10 lbs. I started off quite overweight and my mw wanted me to keep the weight gain to 25 lbs. I think I'll make it.

I've gained between 25 and 30 pounds. I think I was technically underweight to begin with but still, I find this a little bit much, and all the stats about 3rd trimester weight gain are a little bit scary to me right now. I mean, by all accounts it seems totally plausible to gain another 15-20 pounds in the last trimester, and I DON"T WANT TO!!!!!

I'll be 31 weeks on Wednesday and I've gained 20 pounds. That was my goal. Drats. I feel huge for only gaining that much this time around.

22 pounds as of last wednesday, which was 27 weeks. I was overweight to begin with, so I'm really hoping to gain no more than 35, max.

Ditto the thirty pounds at thirty weeks.
I was a little underweight to start with, but I still didn't think I'd gain this much!! Blows my freaking mind!!!
