I'm pretty satisfied with my weight gain, though not with my overall weight. I gained a lot in the middle there but only about 5 lbs in the last 2.5 months. It would suit me if I stopped gaining right now. But I'm sure that isn't in the cards.

I am 31 weeks and have gained 21 pounds. Which sounds fine, until realizing that almost all of that is probably the extra fat in my butt and on my back! Oy...:

I am 31 weeks +3days and up 26lbs...it is scary and I'm not thrilled. I was hoping to gain no more than 25lbs total, which clearly isn't going to happen. Mother gained 40+lbs when pregnant with my brother...I hope I'm not heading in that direction. And no matter what anyone says, it is hard to see the number on the scale go up-- even if we know it's for the best and/or we're being super healthy-- it's still hard. I know I haven't been the healthiest, but I am trying and it's so weird to have this much slower metabolism!! :

I am 32 weeks and up about 9 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight, 15 pounds from my low weight during the first trimester. I had really gained a lot of weight in the past 5 years or so (like 40 pounds : ) so I think my body has just decided I don't need too much extra. Or at least I hope that is what is going on and I don't gain 30 pounds in the next 8-10 weeks.

I'm 32 weeks (and a few days) and up 27.5 pounds. I'm feeling.....ok about it. I was a healthy weight before I got pregnant so I read between 25-35 pounds is healthy for most women my size.

It is hard to gain, though. I can tell that it isn't ALL in my belly, so that's hard emotionally. Just think how satifying it will be to drop 10 pounds right when our babies get here!

31 weeks and I am up 30lbs. Seems about right. Last time I hit 60, by body just wants extra weight pregnant. I lost it all by 4 moths pp, so I am not sweating it this time around. However, this time I have GD, so maybe I won't gain much more on their low carb starvation diet.

I'm 31 1/2 weeks, and have gained about 25 lbs so far. I feel really good about how the baby and I are growing. I was underweight to begin with (always happens to me while I'm breastfeeding). I am eating very healthy. I'm keeping busy and active - being a homemaker with lots of little ones around!

32 weeks, and up 17 pounds. BUT, I started out a bit overweight and have been trying not to go too crazy (like I did last pregnancy).
I actually thought it was more like 30# until I checked in with my friend's Wii.
Hoping to gain 8 more, only.

31 weeks and about 31 pounds so I am very happy!
I gained about 42-45 pounds with my first 3 pregnancies and 67 with my 4th (nausea pretty much all 9 months and only food helped LOL)
I was worried I might gained 60+ again this time around, so so far it looks great for me!

I gained 22 lbs with DD (who was 6 lb 9 oz) and 47 with DS (who was 9 lb 5 oz).

I am 30w2d and have gained 19 lbs. So I think I am on track for about a 30 lb gain. i am fine with that.

Before PH I was 5'7" and 137 lbs and wear a size small.

I don't love the back fat but hey, it has to go somewhere!

As of my 32 wk. appointment I have gained 19lbs. I was hoping to not gain more than 25 with this whole pregnancy, but I guess that might not happen. Fortunately the weather is nice here until Mid-October, so I will have lots of time to be outside walking this all back off.

At 31.5 weeks I had gained 14 pounds. I was down two pounds 2 weeks ago because of dehydration (nasty bout of bronchitis) but put that back on and added another 2 pounds. I feel very much like all belly and boobs, but I'm sure that if I could see my thighs I'd know there was fat there, too!!

I'm almost 30 weeks and I've gained close to 25 lbs. so far. I'm OK with that because it's slower weight gain than my last PG, where I gained 45 lbs. total. I'd like to keep the total weight gain close to 30 lbs. this time if I can, but I'm not going to change my diet if I go over 30 lbs.

I didn't lose weight all that quickly last time from breastfeeding... so we shall see if this time I do. :

I was 110 and now I'm inching past 130. I'd say I've gained 21 pounds. I have six more weeks too. Little guy feels like a bowling ball when I'm in bed .

I'm 31 weeks today. In the month since I last saw my midwife, I have jumped 10 lbs. I'd had slow, minimal weight gain for months and months -- now it looks like the baby and I had a growth spurt.

I started at around 180, and am now 197 lbs. So far, I'm pleased. I was hoping to gain right around 20 lbs. We'll see how these next few weeks go.

I'm too embarrassed to say considering you all seem to have minimal gain. Let's just say i am no longer a wonderful size 6 and i will have lots of weight to lose.

I am 33 weeks today. I started out pre-pregnancy at 105-110, depending, and am now 140. I am uncomfortable about it. The doctor doesn't seem alarmed, but I kind of am!

I am almost 32 weeks and have gained exactly 40 pounds! I think I win if this is a contest! I am so not even close to worried about it, I eat super healthy and have a fairly active life. I gained 65 and 80 pounds with my previous pregnancies and the weight came off easily afterwards. My body packs it on in pregnancy, it seems! I sort of like being all round and soft.

I've gained 41lbs (as of last Monday 5/11, when I was 32wks)...the sad thing is that I think I'm doing better than with my first pregnancy. I did have pretty good luck losing while BF though...maybe that's why I'm gaining less this time, lol, DS1 is nursing like every 2-3hrs when I'm home lol.

An update....I was up a total of 19 lbs at my 28 week appointment, but I lost a pound at my 30 week today. Probably all the stress lately.

32 weeks. Somewhere between 20-25lbs so far. My previous 2 pregnancies I gained over 50 by the end, so I'm very pleased to be that low so far.

Happily married to my dh, mama to ds1 (01/2005), ds2 (07/2007)  and dd (07/2009).
