Weight Gain...

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends a gain of 25 to 35 pounds throughout pregnancy. Shoot to add three to five pounds during the first trimester and one to two pounds each week after.

Welp.. blew THAT one out of the water! Lol

I've gained about 40 or so pounds with both of mine. I can't stop eating this time, so who knows where I'll end up. I'm guessing about the same... My body seems to do what it wants to do regardless of my input, haha. And it has apparently chosen 40 as the magic number for me.
