    Default Ooooh the weight!

    What in the world? Between 16 and 20 weeks I put on 6 lbs...yuck. I thought I was doing a bit better with my food choices and smaller portions these last 4 weeks...but I'm up ANOTHER 6 lbs. What? I think what you ladies are saying is right...your body just wants to be where it wants to be. Only 24 lbs left to stay under 200...and 16 weeks left! I'm toast.

    At least it's all for a good reason!

    Heather, I gained 12 lb in two months too! Last time I didn't gain and this time I am sure I am up. My doctor stays on me about weight too.. I'm short and had per hypertension with DS so I understand. But sometimes you can't help it.. I make better choices too but baby is growing, etc.

    I know I need to gain weight...but REALLY? 12 lbs in 8 weeks? GAH! I looked at my numbers and it says I'm up 23 lbs in total in 24 weeks...so I guess that isn't SO bad. The midwife says I should gain what, 25-30 lbs for the WHOLE pregnancy? HA HA HA HA!

    I guess I'm lucky to have height on my side...I'm 5'8"...but it's still a tough pill to swallow.

    I was just thinking...I lost 25 lbs before I got pg, so I guess I'm just back where I started now. BA HA HA! All that hard work for *nothing*. Ok...a baby is something...but blah.

    Maybe I should stop trying...McDonalds here I come! :P

    Well, I was up 25 pounds at 20 weeks. I gained about 14 pounds of that in the first tri alone!! Your body will do what it needs to do, and it really will be fine. Thankfully I've been pregnant enough times to know that my body slows down quite a bit in the third tri, and I only gain about 7-8 pounds total for that trimester. Maybe your gain will slow down too. I had a bad stomach virus a few days ago. At least that must have slowed my weight gain down some...

    I was up 20 at 24 weeks, probably up another 2 by now. I gained steadily through the 3rd tri with my first, but slowed down with my second so hoping that happens again. My "goal" is to stay under 40 lb gain which I've missed by a few pounds both other times. I do NOT have height on my side (I'm 5'3) so I feel huge but it is what it is. My doc hasn't said a word to me so far, probably because my gains are right on track with my other 2 pregnancies. But man do I wish I was one of those girls who only put on 20 pounds the whole time! Genetics are against me, my poor mom (who is 5'2) put on 95 pounds with me(!!!!). I mean, clearly something was going on there but if she can put on that much weight even though she threw up the ENTIRE pregnancy, I feel good with 40

    I've gained almost 20 lbs now. Between weeks 16-20 I only gained 1 lb, but between 20-24 I gained about 5.

    I started out this pregnancy about 8 lbs lighter than I usually am, so right now at 143 lbs, I am feeling like I only gained 8 lbs instead of 16!

    At 24 weeks I was up a total of 14 pounds, more than I was hoping for. I am only 5' so 14 pounds on me looks like 25 pounds on a taller person...

    With DS I stayed steady my third trimester. My legs actually got enough thinner in the third trimester that I could tell my clothes actually fit better. With DD I didn't slow down the weight. It didn't help that Christmas and Thanksgiving fell in my third trimester, I'm sure! I am hoping this time around in the third, my weight will slow down on account of warmer weather and not being as hungry, I can hope anyway!

    I gained almost 60 with DS so Im hoping I just don't do that much. My drs havent said ANYTHING abotu my weight. the neurologist was concerned today (he's worried about the new medicine he's putting me on and wanted to see how much I had gained since my previous visit but couldnt find it in his notes.) but only concerned as in he wanted to see where we started he actually commented on how I HADNT put on that much weight (really?? AWW THANKS! I would say that he was being super nice but then he commented on how incredibly low baby is)
    (but the neuro visit is a whole diff post!) Heather you are fine don't worry! (and that should mean alot coming from me )
