As of my last appointment the day after Thanksgiving 0, at 24-25 weeks. I should add I've felt worse than the junk on the bottom of your shoes this entire pregnancy, and while I'm hungry I can't eat most of the time, I haven't thrown up in a week though, so we can hope the tide is turning.<br><br><br>
Oh I should also add that my "getting pregnant" weight this time was my delivery weight last time, so I have some to spare. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
I lost 15 pounds in the first trimester and now I'm finally back up to my pre-pregnancy weight at 27 weeks.<br><br>
I'm hoping to gain at least 20 lbs. more before baby comes because I always lose about 30 lbs within 6 weeks or so after the birth. I really don't like looking like I'm anorexic or like I have a drug problem so I'm trying to pile my plates just a little higher.
I'm not 100% positive of my pre-pregnancy weight. But I'm going to go with 165, which is the lowest I saw it during those first several weeks. If i use that number, it looks like I've gained 20 pounds. I'm 24 weeks.<br><br>
I fully expect to top out at just about 200 pounds, like I have with each of my prior pregnancies, for about +35ish pounds total. But I've also been fortunate to be right back down to pre-pregnancy weight by my 6 week PP checkup, if not sooner. YAAAaaaay breastfeeding!!!
UGH! I'm just going to say +16 lbs net at 27 weeks. However, this does not include the HUGE gain post 20 weeks after the HUGE loss first tri. Thinking about that number scares me - if I keep gaining at this rate I will have to find several doulas just to hold my limbs up <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">.
20 pounds at 27.5 weeks.<br><br>
also, i was a "normal" BMI at conceiving (up from too skinny a year before). I say this because I wonder if I'm comparing apples and oranges (or maybe tangelos and oranges) with a lot of you who have gained so much less-- were you overweight to begin with?
25 or 26 weeks and about 14 lbs., but I have some to spare already. What's funny is I tend to gain less during the last few months because my stomach feels so squished all the time. I'd like to stay under 20 but we will see.
13 pounds at 24 weeks.<br><br>
I was slightly overweight to begin with (and 15 pounds heavier than I was at the beginning of my first pregnancy) and I have gestational diabetes, so I've been careful to manage my diet and keep my weight gain slow and steady, which it has been since I modified my diet. Even though I started out heavier this time around, I think I will end up around the same weight at the end just because I've gained weight more slowly this time. We'll see.
Close to 20 pounds. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> And I am a tiny little person, too. (5' 2"). I am 150 right now and hoping to not go over 165 or so. LOL.
25 weeks and 15 lbs. I didn't gain anything until my 21 week visit, at which point I had gained about 12 # in one month! But, I never got to my pre-preggo weight from ds (nor am I ever likely to 'cause it was certainly on the low end of my BMI). I expect to end up at around the same weight as I did with ds.
I'm 24 weeks, but at my last appointment was 22 weeks and weighed in at 138 pounds....10 pounds more than my pre-pregnancy weight. I'm hungry all the time!!!!!! I swear I think my prenatals make me feel hungrier!
Oh my goodness, I'm freaking out a bit here. I am at 26 weeks and the scale just showed I've gained 35 pounds. Holy moly. I haven't weighed myself for about 2 weeks, but the last time I think I was around 27ish pounds. I thought I'd been eating less lately. Wow.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!">
