26 lbs at 32 weeks. Blah. Hopefully the baby will just gain his weight by nourshing himself off my growing a$$. (Last week, I ripped a pair of maternity jeans when I was pulling them up over my a$$...so I've been feeling pretty crappy about the weight gain)

mama to DD (7), DS (3.5), and another DS arriving in August!

Ha, if it were only that easy. I am still sitting on an extra 15lbs from dd2 and I nursed her for over a year.

At my last appt (26 weeks) I was up 10 lbs. At my 28 week appt it looked like I lost a pound, but I was weighing myself at 9:30 am instead of 7 pm. My next appt is next week, so I'll update then.

Oh, and I'm very happy so far with my weight gain. I started about 20 lbs heavier this time then with my last two pregnancies (a lot more than with my first LOL) and with all three of my other pregnancies I was up 20 lbs by this time. I think I'm doing pretty good.

38 weeks and I've gained about 25 lbs.

I had extra weight to begin with though. I started at 175 lbs, and I just hit the 200 lbs mark at 38 weeks.

I'm at about 32 lbs. (maybe 1 or 2 up from that now) at 36 weeks.

I forgot to add that I'm actually totally OK with this weight gain. I may be able to keep it to around 35 lbs. total when baby arrives. That's better than 45 lbs. like the last time.

I was up 31 lbs at my 35 week appointment last week. I'm okay with that, but I'm hoping to not gain much more.

36.5 weeks, total so far is 32 lbs.

I'm scared for my next appt, because my feet keep getting puffier, and this was the point I gained 8lbs in a week w/ ds's pg. Agh!

I've gained 18lbs so far. Last pregnancy I gained 20 total so I feel like this is about the same- maybe I'll gain slightly more.

At 40 weeks I've gained 29 pounds. 3 weeks ago it was 31 pounds, then 2 weeks of no gain, then 2 pounds lost. Pretty much the same thing happened with DD

I have no idea *how* I've lost weight (or how I did at the end last time, either!) because I've been starving and definitely eating whenever I'm hungry. Baby must be taking lots of resources from me

Let me preface this by saying that before I got pg I was at my all time high pregnancy wt of 164. I am 172 as of 37 weeks so only 8 pounds. But I feel HUGE b/c I've never been this big with any of mine (this is #5 for me). I was 130 before I got pg with #1 and 145 before #2 and 150ish before #3 and about 145-150ish before #4 I weighed 160-164 at delivery with all of them.

At 36 weeks I'm up 20 lbs. I haven't gained anything in the last 3 weeks, I was hoping it would be easier to pack it on at the end. It worries me just a little, because I am super small to begin with, but my mom said she only gained about 25 with her pregnancies and we were all normal sized babes.

At 36.5 weeks I'd gained 17 pounds. I was a bit swollen... a week later, though, I'd dropped 2 pounds. Less swelling, and maybe a bit dehydrated. I expect I'll be back up again on Monday

Well, I seem to have all of you beat so far!!! At nearly 39 weeks, I am up 34 lbs. I gained about the same with my daughter and then actually 38 with my son. So I am okay with it--I have stayed very active, but have not really "watched my diet" very well. But--most people tell me that I am "all baby". (which I know that baby won't weigh 34 lbs, but it sure feels like it is sitting all in my tummy!!!!)

I am up 44 pounds at 37 weeks! I always gain loads of weight in pregnancy... gained 65 pounds the first time around, and 80 the second. So I feel like I've gained barely anything! My body just does it, I eat well and maintain the same activity level. It's easy for me to lose afterwards, and my babies are on the big end of normal (high 8's, low 9's).

Peaceful mama to three blissfully-birthed and incredible small people: dd10, dd7 and ds5. Always awed and so thankful to be a midwife.

last time I checked - which was last week I believe - 37 weeks - I was 118 lbs which is up 15 and a bit pounds from pre-preg. About the same as where I was with dd and with another couple weeks to go (surely!) I plan to chuck on at least a couple more so this little one isn't too skinny (but hey, I'm small, I make small babies - it's all good - and I feel like I eat constantly).

finally midwife mama to my home-birthed nurslings: Noemi Sakura 16.10.07 & Seder Pádraig 13.7.09 and partner to their lovely daddy

I am 39 weeks sunday - started at 158 and now weight 213......

first time pregnancy - gained a bit of weight - but the midwife has told me that I will lose at least 10 of water......quite swollen.

I feel comfortable with the amount I've gained....... and just accept it.

I am up 38 lbs at 37 weeks. I hadn't gained a thing in 6 weeks, and then I went up 6 lbs in two weeks, I think some of that is water as I just started to swell. I gained 65 with DS, so I am thrilled to keep this one close to 40. I think the GD diet helped me not gain as much. I found it all super easy to lose last time. Within 4 months it was all off.
