How far along are you and how much have you gained?

I'm 27 weeks and some change and have gained 20lbs...That's up 10lbs in the past month and a half.

30 wks, up 19lb. 3 in the last 3 wks, 10 the month before that, and 3 my first 6 months. And that's typical of me. 30lb total with my first 2 pregnancies. Nothing first trimester (and not sick), then a few pounds. Then I gain about 10 around 6 months, in a month's time, then generally a pound a week after that. So far this one is the same. We'll see!

I'll be 30 weeks on Tuesday, and I'm up 17 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight. I lost 7 pounds in the first trimester due to severe nausea, though, and have continued to have pretty bad nausea and food aversions, so I've not been eating all that much - I have to fight to get food down a lot of the time.

31 weeks tomorrow and I have gained 10 lbs. I tend not to gain a whole lot because I am overweight to start.

I am 29 weeks and gained 21 pounds. My midwife freaked because I gained 9 pounds in a month, but then she went back and got my chart and said "oh, your playing catch up" Then when on to say I should be gaining more because I was underweight when I started. Last time I gained 50 pounds, so I am pretty happy I am not repeating it.

I think I beat u all. I'm 28 weeks tmrw(tues) and I haven't gotten on the scale in a couple days, but it's prob 24-26lbs. I usually weigh more than I look-by 10lbs. And I gained 60 w/ last pregnancy. I've been bad on eating sweets/snack food the last month. Hopefully get a lil control over it & more prenatal yoga. BUT compared to last time...I think I'm doing better & my belly pics r smaller. And both of our families tend to bake big babies.

Pirogi, I am right there with you on the weight gain. I am eating really healthy too, so I don't know what is up with the weight gain either.

29 weeks and up 26lbs

I gained 60lbs with DD1 and really didn't want to repeat that, but I appear to be gaining in leaps and bounds....lots of weight gain in the last 2 months. I do know that I retain A LOT of water (already have some pitting), but this is ridiculous!

I was up about 27 lbs at 25 weeks. 4 lbs the first 17 weeks, then a bunch more in the next 8. My dr freaked a bit, made me feel guilty... I hate to worry about this, I need to gain weight to grow this baby! Urgh

I'm 30 weeks and am down 10 lbs.

I had really bad morning sickness until about 24weeks, but was maintaining my weight. Then at 27 weeks I found out I have GD, and went on the GD diet. I've lost 10 lbs in 3 weeks.

I know the only way I was maintaining my weight when I was sick was with all of the carbs/ sugar I was eating. Now, without them, even though I'm never hungry, the weight is just falling off.

My ob doesn't seem too concerned at this point. My next appointment is Friday, so I guess I'll see. I'm freaking out a little.

I'm 30 weeks tomorrow, and I've gained 7 or 8 pounds. I started out 50-ish pounds overweight, though, so it's all good.

My midwives don't care to monitor weight gain, and my bathroom scale is somewhere still in transit between Florida and BC, so I don't have any good idea about how much I weight these days. But my guess is I've gained somewhere between 15-25 pounds at week 28.

As hungry as I am lately, though, my guess is that I'll be starting to gain faster now. I almost literally never feel full. I often feel 'full enough' or 'no longer starving' but offer me something delicious 20 minutes later, and I'll probably still be up for it.

Out of curiosity I'm looking forward to finally unpacking my own scale since that is the only constant in this move, it's been packed since 18w. It seems like from what I can average from the various other scales I have seen that I'm still on track at about a pound per week overall. At 27w now I'm thinking I'm about 25 pound up, with the twins 1:1 is my general target, so I feel pretty good

I'm 29 weeks, and I've gained 0 pounds. I'm eating really well and exercising and so far, nothing. The OB says that I should expect to gain starting now since the baby will be packing on the weight from now on. I'm hoping to gain less than 10 pounds total, since I started out overweight.

28 weeks and stood on the scale this morning...up 9 pounds. 2 weeks ago I was only up 4-5 pounds, so agreeing with previous post, baby is starting to put weight on. This is the time I gained with DS and total with him I gained 12 pounds. I am shooting for under 20 with this one.

28 weeks. i don't know my actual pre-preg weight, my guess is between 225-228. i was 238 yesterday but went up to 242 previously. i'm gaining less than i did with my first pg but i also started off heavier. last time though, i went pre-eclamptic so i ended up gaining a ton of water weight after 35 weeks.. i'm hoping to avoid that this time around!
