I've gained 33lbs. so far (28 wks.). I was at my regular weight before conceiving, 130lb. I don't feel huge but definitely have some extra padding on my legs and butt. I gained between 45-50 lbs. with my first, twins, and delivered at 33 wks. so not sure how much more I would have put on! My mw likes to see her women gain around 40 lbs. so I'm not too worried.

25 pounds at 28.5 weeks. I was hoping to stop at 30 pounds... guess that isn't going to happen. I don't feel fat, although my belly is HUGE. I think the weight is on my boobs, butt and thighs.

Lots of squats and lunges after this baby is born....

Oh good - I was wanting to start a thread like this but didn't know if it was PC to be worrying about.

I'm 28 weeks and have gained 17-18 lbs. I was hoping to top out at 25 but it looks like I'll probably hit 30...but who knows? This is my first so that remains to be seen. My thighs have definitely expanded but I feel ok for the most part.

25lbs at um....26 weeks? Last pregnancies I gain 35-40 total, so I'm pretty much on track. I started off a bit underweight at 125 lbs.
ot- I weighed myself at Walmart- my mw (nor I) doesn't weigh me.

At my last appointment two weeks ago I was 24 weeks along and had gained 18 lbs. I don't have a working scale in my house, so I'm not sure where I'm at now, but I feel like I've exploded in size in the last two weeks.

about 30-35 I think...at almost 28 weeks. It's a little foggy because I don't know my exact starting number. I gained 60 (and promptly lost it) with my first 2, so I think I just gain a lot. And, I may be on track to gain less this time? I dunno. I'm really not too worried about it.

27 weeks and 28 pounds. And 14 inches.

Last time I gained 33 pounds. But this time I was a few pounds underweight to start, so I expect to gain more.

Well, I plan to gain whatever I need to gain, but I expect to end up having gained more since I weighed less to start.

If that makes any sense at all....

I was about 20 pounds less starting this pregnancy than I was with all my others. So, it seems like I have put on a lot more weight this time.
I am 29 weeks, and I have put on about 15-20 pounds.

As of 28wks I'm up 1lb. I was/am not overweight at all. I'm just not able to eat anything when I'm pregnant! I bet I gain my 30lbs AFTER the baby is born...

19 lbs at 28 weeks. I had some pretty big gains a while back, but was actually down a pound at my last visit. I haven't weighed myself in the week since my last appointment.

I'm 27 pounds at 29 weeks. I was not skinny before, but I'm tall so weight is a little more forgiving. I'm trying hard to eat a high protein diet and stay active, and I'm REALLY hoping that breastfeeding will be the weight-loss miracle I've dreamed of.

I'm up 15lbs at almost 29 weeks. I started at the same weight, 145, as my other two. With my 1st I maxed at 180, my 2nd at 175. Its not something I'm worried or doing anything about. It has always taken me about 9 months to get back to my original weight, but breastfeeding definitly was a big helper!

I've probably gained about 15-20 lbs and I'm at 28 weeks. Weighing myself is optional at the midwife appointment and I forgot last time. I don't own a scale! I was normal weight (about 120 lbs) for my height (5'4") and I think I gained between 20 and 30 with both my other pregnancies. I am fairly petite and had little babies though...

I'm sometimes worried about being "too small" because that's what everybody says. I am not counting calories and am consciously trying to eat more! But my measurements are right on and the midwife says to ignore people and not worry about it - so that's what I am trying to do!

I am 26 weeks and 5 lbs. I was heavy to begin with (188lbs) so I don't think I really need to gain anymore weight but I do feel paranoid about it at times! Like, I'm not properly taking care of my baby. I thought it was pretty obvious that I was pregnant, since when I go out, I'm in maternity tops but when I've gone to pick up baby items, people are like, and who is this for?? ME you dork!!!! I"m pregnant one!!

I've found that I really do need to eat smaller meals now since I tend to get full much faster. I can't have milk with food now (unless it's a small bowl of cereal); I have to drink it alone otherwise I won't be able to finish my meal!

26 weeks and have gained 11lbs. I started out 10lbs below what I was with my daughter so I feel a little better about it. I weighed 163 to start with at 5'7". I only gained 18 with her and she was 8lbs!

I am at 11lbs at 28 weeks.

I started off about 20lbs ever what I should be at so I am just fine with not gaining a whole lot. My belly is huge so I know the baby is still growing!

Nearly 29 weeks and I've gained between 15 and 20 lbs., depending on what time of day and where I weigh.

put me down for about 40 now, at 28 weeks. I'll confess to far too much junk food over the last week and a half. i'm steeling myself to do better...
