I voted 40-50 lbs although I haven't weighed myself in at least 2 weeks. I could very well be 50+ lbs. as I was close to 50 last time I weighed in. I gained 50 lbs with ds and lost it all without effort (over about 8-9 months). I lost 30 lbs the day ds was born (he was 10 and I guess the rest was blood/water) and the remaining 20 lbs over the months. I think that's just what my body does so I am not too worried. The weight gain has given me bad varicose veins this time though : I hope those go away!

According to my scale, about 34 lbs. I wish it were a bit less, but I am ok with it. I am 33 weeks. The Midwife thinks I gained about 30, since I gained 4 lbs before I went to my first appt.

My MW could care less but I like to get on the scales about once a month or so, for my own info. Funny that today was the day, so I can actually "weigh in" on this thread LOL.

36 weeks and I have gained 17.5 pounds. That is about 5-10 pounds less than either of my other PGs at this point. I am happy about that because I started 10 pounds higher this time. And it is also kind of strange, because I swear this baby feels like my biggest yet. I will be interested to see what happens in this last 5 weeks!

I am totally over the part where I was having trouble keeping weight on, and have now gained 15 pounds. 3 of that in 2 weeks. Not sure I want to keep gaining 1.5 pounds a week with 6 weeks or so left to go though! But I am okay with the weight gain so far. I think it should come off fairly easily.
