weight gain?

I'm a little more obsessive about keeping track of my weight this time because of my BP last time. I'm up about 14-15 pounds. Where is everyone else at?

I am at 11 pounds so far. I am watching so I won't gain too much and to keep my doctor happy. He said I am overweight, which that kinda pissed me off.

ugh, what a jerk. According to my bmi I am overweight as well but i don't think i am. I guess the weight gain is going to start picking up now so i am going to have to get used to it getting faster. I read from now on 1 pound a week is normal.

I think last month at my appointment I had gained 8 pounds or so. Otherwise, I don't keep track. To me, it isn't worth it and would just make me focus on it and stress about it. That's the way I feel about weight though--if it wasn't for having our daughter and wanting to weigh her once in a while we wouldn't even have a scale in the house. I figure I am healthy--I eat fruits, veggies, etc. and exercise so that should be good enough Smile

I am not sure. I think I have gained about 15 lb so far. Maybe more. I'm not used to being able to eat like this. My last 2 babies I was so sick that I couldn't eat and lost weight for the first 20+ weeks.

I've gained 28 pounds - but with twins I've read that a pound a week is good so I'm not too far off. My doctor hasn't commented at all on my weight. I'm so greatful for that because the Dr I had with my first pregnancy was obsessed with weight. It got to the point that I dreaded going to appointments because I knew she'd be upset that I gained. Everyone that went to her had the same story - no matter how much or little they gained.

I'm up 21, I think?
I gained 9 at the last appointment, but am hoping to slow that one down. That's too much I think.

Went to the m/w today. Apparently I have gained about 24 lb. I hope this rate doesn't keep up. I'm not having twins Wink

I had an OB appointment today and I'm up 16 pounds. It's about 3 more than with my last pregnancy, so we'll see if things even out!
