Right there with ya! I will definately be gaining 10 lbs or more than with my first two. They were 25 and 28 lbs.

During an insomnia kick last night I got up and had
a gulp of Mountain Dew, a granola bar, a halloween sized kit kat, and a peah milkshake (half a glass). Serious sugar rush to get me back to sleep, lol. Granted this is unusual behavior for me, but Im afraid to weight at my next appt. now!

Yup, the weight just keeps packing on for me too. Though I blame it on all the vacationing I have been doing. We spent 2 weeks at DHs families, then we were home for 3 weeks and DS and I went to visit my family for 2 weeks. We were back for 2 weeks then it's Halloween. Though I gained 10lbs at both appointments which were 4 - 5 weeks apart. I really hope it slows down... though I am not doing a whole lot to prevent it. I already feel fat, and if I try and cut the healthy fat food out I will probably just feel worse. Just hoping it all melts off like butter like it did with DS.

well its just good to know that i am not alone. i too am not real worried about the total weight gain, but i dont want to gain another 10 lbs before the baby is born! both my boys were almost 9 lbs. at birth and the MW told me to cut down on the sugar and white flour to try and prevent another large baby. i have pretty much cut those things out of my diet (i havent had one piece of halloween candy), but im not so sure this baby boy will be smaller b/c of that. i just think my hips will be smaller! lol!

Hopping over from the November board. Just had to say that in my 41st week I gained 3 pounds!!! eek* I blame it on late night chocolate nibbling. One of my midwives requested dark chocolate be at the birth to munch on so I bought two small bags of Ghiradelli (sp?) squares when they were on sale. And there's only one bag left
