Weight gain!

I'm up like 4 pounds from my last appointment ladies.. how crazy is that and my next appointment isn't even until next Thursday and with Christmas festivities.. YIKES!! I read 1-2 pounds a week in the second trimester is ok though.. but still.. WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Lol I'm a big baby and it seems like a lot! Maybe it will just be 4 pounds in a month. Where are you ladies with weight gain?

I'm 21 weeks today and officially up 14 per my home scale.. thought I had tipped the 170 mark but it's holding steady at 169.something!

What's your total gain so far? It can't be much, skinny girl! Lol You look fantastic!!

You're funny Blum 3 Including these 4 I am counting, 9-10. I fluctuated with my starting weight. I just hope I slow down some so I don't go past 25. I know my body will do whatever though so I won't stress. It's just a little annoying lol

Dude, I'm already up like 20 lbs. I gain a pound a week through the entire thing. I used to try to fight it, but this is my third time now, and my body apparently just does whatever it wants anyway, lol. Hopefully it comes off quickly this time like it has the other two times. Hate it, hate it. I get anxiety every time I get on the scale at the doc's office. Ooooh well!

So with my first 2 I gained pretty steadily from day 1. For some reason with this one at almost 20 weeks I'm only up 4lb since my starting weight :huh:... and I eat anything and everything. Not sure why or what the difference is, but I'll take it. Watch me gain 30lb in the next 4 months!

Finally up a few pounds. I am still getting sick a couple times a week, but other than that I am eating fairly normally.

I found this pregnancy weight calculator. IDK how accurate it is, but you can see where you should be and where you are during your pregnancy:

Pregnancy Weight Gain Calculator - Pounds : Kilos weight gained when pregnant BMI ajusted - Baby2see

Since I'm in week 22, I went with that one and I'm only about 1.02 above where I "should" be.

That's pretty cool!!!!!!!!!!! Biggrin TFP!!!

If BMI was less than 20, you should aim for a weight gain of 28 to 40lb (12.5 to 18kg).

My pre-preg BMI is 18, so yay! It's totally normal for me to gain a pound a week like I do, lol.

I don't know what is going on but I'm still below Pre-Preg weight. :/ I think I'm starting to gain though. I was lower than pre-preg than I am now... So I'm gaining. I guess I'll see where I'm at at my big u/s appt
