I've blamed mine on my daughters birthday party and the halloween candy.<br><br>
I really hope it slows down a bit after this point!

Right there with ya! I will definately be gaining 10 lbs or more than with my first two. They were 25 and 28 lbs.<br><br>
During an insomnia kick last night I got up and had <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/scared.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="scared"> 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!<br><br>

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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

I've gained 3 in 2 weeks, bringing the total up to 38 lbs! I don't mind, I feel great and I'm sure it'll fly off after the birth- can't wait to get back in my normal clothes.

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!<br>

I also gained almost 4 pounds in the 2 weeks between my 32-week and 34-week appointment. It seems pretty common in our group!

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 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:
