this makes me feel better too.
Do you tend to gain more if you start out thinner?

I'll be 30 weeks on Friday and still haven't gained any weight. I was a little concerned, but after talking to the midwife, she said it is fine. My belly growth is good so I guess that is okay. I have never gained nothing before.

I haven't gained any for probably a month and a half... because I actually have energy to make my own food instead of eating crap. I'm up about 16lbs, maybe, but I'm already overweight so...

I am up 5 pounds at 30 weeks. But as I've said before (blah, blah, blah), I was heavier than I should have been to begin with and I tend to put on all of my weight during the 3rd trimester.

At my 34 week appointment, I was up 9 pounds. I had gained 5 pounds since my last appointment! I do tend to put on most of my weight in the third trimester though.

34 weeks. 17 lbs. 2 weeks ago I was up 24. I have hypermesis in the 3rd tri so my food choices are limited and I don't have much appetite. My doctor told me to start drinking ensure. Not sure how I'm going to do that, since the only thing I can drink is apple juice.
With Rose, I have hypermesis through the whole pregnancy and put on 25 at the end. This time it's very different. I'm definitely much smaller belly-wise than with her. He's probably going to be born 3 weeks early so really hoping I can put on a little more weight.

At last check up (30 wks), I was up 7.5 lbs, but I was overweight starting out. Most of the new weight feels like it's all in my belly, where it should be, but OH MY PELVIS hurts!!!!
