I know how you feel. I only gained 3, but it was a jump from the 1/2 lb I gained last month. Makes you feel like a whale. At least it did me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

Stop weighing yourself! Stop beating yourself up! What are you going to do about it now? Your body knows what to do to grow a healthy baby.<br><br>
P.S. Stop weighing yourself. It's really better not to know.

your body is making all kinds of crazy new blood right now, that is probably half of it!<br><br>
last time between weeks 15 and 19 I gained 9 pounds, and between 19 and 23 I gained *11* - yikes!

PFT... Don't worry about it. I gained 7lbs in 6 weeks but I'm pretty sure that 6 of those pounds came on in the last 4 weeks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I hate the scale. My MWs use it because they want to make sure I'm not gaining too much too quickly, and that I'm not *losing*, but I try to not look at it. It's depressing.

I had a huge weight jump too, am I the only one happy about it?!? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:<br>
I lose soooo much weight breastfeeding I started this preganncy out 10 lbs and two sizes smaller than I ever was in my adult life, and my daughter was a nurse snacker! I'm worried if I get a feast nurser I may disappear.<br><br>
I'm up 22 lbs at almost 20 weeks and I say BRING IT ON!

I shudder to think what the scale will say at my next OB appt. My "hollow leg" has returned! I had it with DD and it is back with a vengeance. I just finished dinner and am thinking about what else I can eat!

I gained 10 in 5 weeks last time. The receptionist at my OB held up fingers rather than say it aloud. But in the end I didn't gain too much, so I figure it was a baby growth spurt. I would not be surprised if I gain a lot in the next few weeks for the same reason, even m/w said I will probably gain pretty quickly soon (I only gained 2 lbs this month, which was good as if I'd kept gaining like I did in the beginning I was well on my way to gaining more this time around!)<br><br>
As another poster said, I also lost it all and more thanks to bf, so really, I try not to get too worried. You shouldn't either. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

When I was pregnant with my twins, and the scale hit 220lbs, I FLIPPED OUT at the doctor. (I was like 32w, and we knew I wouldn't go that much longer.) I was like:<br><br><span style="font-size:large;">THAT'S IT, I'M DONE GETTING ON THIS STUPID SCALE EVERY 3 DAYS</span> (I had a lot of appts because of the TTTS, so I was literally there 2-3x/week) <span style="font-size:large;">I AM TOTALLY OVER IT, I DO NOT WANT TO KNOW HOW MUCH MORE WEIGHT I GAIN, MY BODY IS FINE, I DON'T HAVE GESTATIONAL DIABETES, I'M PREGNANT WITH TWINS, AND I AM NOT, I REPEAT NOT, EVER GETTING ON THIS STUPID SCALE EVER AGAIN, I DON'T CARE IF YOU DROP ME AS A PATIENT I AM ABSOLUTELY DONE WITH IT SO HELP ME GOD I WILL SCREAM AT THE NEXT PERSON WHO TAKES MY WEIGHT....</span><br><br>
And guess what?-- the doc must have seen that I was a crazed hormonal pregnant woman, and I never got on that stupid scale again.<br><br>
Now I'd be THRILLED to see 220 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hide.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hide">:

I am happy I am gaining some weight because I was worried that I did not gain enough.<br><br>
My sil gained 90lbs during her pregnancy, which worried her a whole lot. Now, almost 2 years later, she is back at her normal weight (she only breastfed for a very short time).<br><br>
I like the idea of not weighing yourself though - stress is no good during pregnancy.

I'm right there with ya. I gained 10 pounds in 7 weeks. I was also super embarrased<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> because I've been so good about avoiding junk food and I'm eating right.
