i have gained 13 lbs @ 30 weeks. started at 120. i am matching exactly the weight gain of my first, although i am trying to eat a lot!!! i ate lots then too. my total weight gain first time was 20lbs, and dd was 8 2.5 lbs. so i think i'm having another girl. i do get a few comments like 'you're so small' from people, but i think they mean that i am 'normal' everywhere else and am just gaining a belly.
so, i'm not worried this time and i know i am eating very well. i have a wheat and dairy allergy with takes most of the good stuff out, and the treats! i try for 3 meals and 3 snacks a day, although the size of my meals is shrinking with my stomach.
my midwife is not concerned, growth is right on target. she thinks it's silly that i want to try and gain more weight. i wouldn't mind some reserves for breastfeeding.
my advice for others in the same situation is to ensure awesome nutrition, lots of protein & veg fats, and then relax about it. i eat avocados, eggs, seeds, and nuts a lot!
