I feel GREAT about my weight gain this pregnancy. I've gained the perfect amount of weight... just don't ask me what that number would be, because I haven't stepped on a scale since I found out I was pregnant.

AHHH, the freedom....

The only time I have weighed myself is at the midwife's office. I'm not sure what my starting weight is. I'm also not going to stress about it. I try to eat healthy and exercise.

I've gained 15 lbs. so far and feel great! I think that as long as you are active and eating healthily, your body will naturally put on the appropriate amount of weight for you and your baby. Just cause it seems "high" or "low" doesn't mean anything...as pp's have already said, it's just a number

I'm 30 weeks and up 15 lbs. I am really happy with that. I gained about 7 lbs over the holidays (we mastered the art of gluten free baking!!) and started a little up from my pre pregnancy weight with my oldest child. I gained 55 lbs with him and was so afraid that because I was so close to the same weight that I would gain a lot this time too. I gained 20 lbs total with my second, but was also 20 lbs heavier than I was the first time around.
