I think the 40-lb weight gain that I've had both times is probably normal for me. My "normal" is 110-115 lbs at 5'6"... I think I remember the lower limit for normal BMI being 118, so I usually run just a few lbs underweight, always have. So I'm not too worried about gaining 40 while pregnant, although it's a bit painful on the old body to gain that much weight in 9 short months, haha.
It's kind of funny I run on the lower end for weight gain because I started my first 3 pregnancies solidly underweight (100lbs at 5'4"= BMI of 17.2). The highest my BMI got while pregnant was 21.5, or on the middle of the "normal" range. Since Oliver I've had a few extra pounds and am now on the line between underweight and normal, so I'm curious what will happen with the next pregnancy. Will I still gain around 25lbs or will I just gain enough to hit 125, like with the others?
lol... I think I'm going to end up bigger with this one. I can NOT stop eating... Constantly. If I don't eat every other minute, I feel ill. I'm going to be huge, hahah.
You guys need more belly pics!!
I *still* have not taken one since 7 weeks. I'll be 15 weeks tomorrow, so I should do one then.
I agree with Sandra.
MORE BELLY PICS NEEDED!
Wow have I fallen behind on posting my belly pics! I've been taking them, I guess I just forgot to put them here. heh.

32 Weeks (ugh no makeup, kind of a last minute pic)
Sorry they're all so big - photobucket changed something and all my default settings are gone. I'll change it next time. Too lazy to do it now! heh
Lauren, we need a new belly pic!!! :) You look fantastic, btw!
Mary, we need *a* belly pic!! Haha!
Mary you are a belly pic slacker with this kid ;) How about it? Ashley you could post too ;) I've got baby fever so I want some pics to feed the fire!
My belly pics are still LAME because I am just gaining all over still. I do a new one at the beginning of every month so I'll do my 4 month one next week and promise to add it here too.
