How much weight have you all gained? I know I had a bad weekend with not eating well and not working out but I feel like I have gained way too much too fast! I am at 5lbs already!!!!

I am not sure. I had gained weight before this pregnancy. I think I gained a few pounds up till week 7. Since then, I have lost a few from not feeling well and getting sick.

I'm down a couple lbs from the start of this pregnancy, but I think I'm supposed to be with my managing my gestational diabetes and being overweight to start.

I'm not sure how much I've gained yet. When I went to my initial appointment, my weight was 4 lbs under what I *thought* it was. My next appointment is July 5, so I'll have more input them. I'm really hoping to minimize the amount of weight gained this time around. I've gained 55 lbs, 26 lbs, and 45 lbs.

That's what I'm hoping for this time around too....with Addy and Cam's pregnancies, I felt like I gained too much, although it didn't look like I had gained that much. I'm due during the same season as Lauryn, so I'm hoping that maybe I'll gain right around the same amount as her pregnancy Biggrin

I gained 30 with DS. My doctor said 25-30 is ideal. I would like to stay at or around 30 this time too.

I've gained 10 lbs. already which is ridiculous, but I believe it was because I was on a really strict diet before I found out I was pregnant (we weren't trying to get pregnant) and as soon as I found out I started eating normal again. And when I say normal, I mean a lot, I'm hungry all of the time and trying to eat whatever sounds good so I'll feel better:)
I've gained all different amounts of weight with my pregnancies, 30-35 with preg #1,2,4; 40 pounds with my daughter #3, 50 pounds with #5 and only 22 pounds #6. I usually weigh about 120-125 and have always lost all of my pregnancy weight by around 6 months of breastfeeding.

I'm not sure how much I've gained. It fluctuates during the day on my scale. I used to love my MW's scale(s) as it always was lower then mine here (I know that's just how it is but it still feels nice) but it was not as generous at my first appointment. Thinking it's a few pounds at most.

With DD I didn't gain until well into the second trimester as I had such awful ms and vomited constantly. I gained 24 lbs in her pregnancy total. She was only 5lbs 5 oz and some of that was likely due do my cholestasis but I'd like to gain 25-30 just to help baby be a higher birth weight if possible.

I'm actually close to 5lbs under my starting weight- from 146 to 141. I was 146 even when I got pregnant with DS, lol but I topped out at 222 lbs the day I delivered. I gained SO much weight with my son that I'm watching everything closely but I've been so sick and I have an infection in a tooth that's stopping me from eating too much as well.

I'm trying to stay around 25 lbs at the most.
