I love having big chubby babies too and hope baby #3 will be also!
Me + Dh = Dd1(9.5 yrs) + Dd2(7 yrs) and Ds(4.5 yrs)
My mom has the exact same body as me and said she gained a lot of weight early in pregnancy and not so much as other women during the 3rd tri, so I'm hoping that's what's going on here.
But, as I said, not stressing. I'm healthy, baby is healthy. I look forward to a vigorous exercise program after he/she arrives that will get me into better shape than I ever have been! That and a fat, happy, breastfeeding babe.

I'm right where I had hoped to be. At first, I felt like I wasn't gaining enough, so I made sure I ate my protein & calcium (greek yogurt, occasional prozen yogurt) and more frequent servings of fruit as snacks and I'm feeling fine. Plus I have a bump that came out of nowhere within the last week!
DD born 7/19/10, DS due 3/12/12
I think I gained about 35 pounds with DS so would like to keeep my weight gain somewhere around that for this lil one.
By 30 weeks last time I had already gained 40 pounds and then another 20 in the last 8 weeks. I'm aiming to gain up to 35 pounds this time, so far so good!
Since getting to my lowest I have fluctuated between 198 and 202 on the scales. The other day I was 198, today I was 197. So I'm guessing I am just maintaining right now, but I wonder how much I've lost while the baby has gained.
My ultimate goal is to NOT gain past 215, and with probably less than 20 weeks to go (I have NEVER made it to my due date. I've always birthed between 37-39 wks) I am pretty sure I won't gain to that point again, but if I do I know it will probably be all baby and after baby gets here I will probably be lower than my lowest weigh in. That would be fine with me, LOL
I've lost a total of 130lbs though since last year. IN past pregnancies I lost weight in the first trimester and then maybe gained 5-15 through the rest of the pregnancy. I am hoping that will be the case this time too.

i started this pg 30 pounds overweight and have been feeling anxious about my weight gain, but my midwife looked over my chart from my last pg and reminded me that i'm 24 pounds LIGHTER than i was at 20 weeks with dd. so that was encouraging!
