Still putting on too much weight

Even though I am down from my pre pregnancy weight my Dr is still concerned and that's part of the reason they sent me to the hospital for testing. I had put on 5 lbs in 2 weeks as of last Friday and now since then I have put on another 3 lbs. I'm not eating more than usual or junk food. My BP is perfect if anything its actually low and I know I'm not retaining water so now I'm getting concerned.

Hopefully they'll get a better understanding of what's going on after testing. When I was pregnant with my son I would have months with large gains like that, I ended up developing GD at 32 weeks, but passed my tests each time before that.

Yeah I already took my GD tests. I failed the 1 hour but passed the 3 hour no problem. I wonder if they will make me take it again. My next appointment is on Tuesday so I guess we will see what they say then. I wonder if the baby is measuring big as well.

I agree that they will probably test you for GD again or do some longer and more exstensive testing! I have my GD test next week and Im a little concerned with my weight gain too! I gained 7 lbs my last three weeks and I usually have a very hard time gaining weight! I hope that everything goes great and I will keep you in my thoughts!!

Thank you! I will let everyone know what they tell me on Tuesday. I am just like you Amber I hadn't been gaining anything but baby is growing perfectly and now in one month I put on 8 lbs, it's just crazy. I really hope it is GD. I hate having to get my fingers poked. It hurts worse than needles in your arm! I have a 4D U/S on that day as well so maybe they will tell me an estimate on how big the baby is.

Hopefully they can figure out if there is something up. Hang in there. Keeping my fingers crossed that its nothing, or something that they can easily treat Smile
