Ok so i'm totally freaking bummed out right now I've had such a great weigh gain this pregnancy, for the first 23 weeks i didn't gain anything at all and then all of the sudden I've gained almost 30lbs in under 10 weeks. I'm still 12lbs under where i was with DS but at the same time i really didn't want to hit 200lbs this time around. Everything hurts, my joints are sore and even my heels are in pain
Thats all, just needed to bit#h a bit...
I find it weird that in two pregnancies I didn't gain any weight until 16 weeks. However, after that I gain like crazy. In my first, i gained 54 lbs (194 final weight). Right now i'm up 35 lbs but I started 10 lbs heavier than last time (I actually gained weight in my 2nd pregnancy and then gained more after the m/c).
At my last two appointments I got the lecture on weight gain (averaging 2 lbs/week). The week I started my iron supplement I gained 6 lbs
My only positive is that I am gaining less weight than in my first pg but since I started higher, it works out to be about the same final weight.

That's how I gain too, nothing until about mid-way through and then like crazy after that. The least I've gained is 30lbs, that was with my son and again, I didn't start gaining until after 20 weeks, so 30lbs in 16 weeks (had him at 36w). It was even more with my girls and this time will definitely be more since I've already gained at least 30lbs and hopefully still have a few weeks. It stinks because this time I've been watching what I'm eating and exercising (well not quite as much on that anymore since I started contracting) and yet I'm still going at about 2lbs a week every single appointment.

Aww, Kat. I'm so sorry!!!! i hope it all "melts away" those first few days after she's born. It's rough gaining weight so fast. (My jaw drops when I step on the scale at my appointments)

I'm so sorry! I have to say I really hate the whole weight gain part of pregnancy. I wish I was one of those women who only put it on in the belly, but for me it goes to my thighs and butt as well (so attractive). I lost all the weight after I had DD, but I had to work really hard at it, and it took me 10 months. It was super frustrating too, because several of my friends had babies around the same time, and the weight just came right off them without them even trying. One of them lost ALL the pregnancy weight in 2 weeks... I'm not kidding. It made me feel like such a loser. But, I got it off eventually. Not looking forward to having to do that again.
Weight gain in my mind is the worst part of pregnancy. I didn't lose the weight after DD unfortunately but I am determned to lose it after this one!
Keep your chin up girly! I am sure you will be able to lose it!
Ok, so i pee'd like 15 times last night and now weigh 199.9 LOL, atleast it put a tiny smile on my face for a brief second.
it's crazy how different this pregnancy is with weight gain. with DS I litterally sat around for 9 months because i was out of work. i just cleaned up the house which never really got that dirty and went to lunch with friends like 3x a week. this time I'm watching what i eat, am constantly running after a 2 year old and never seem to find time to sit down...ever. i don't see how I could have gained tht much weight. DH thinks it's my sudden cravings for ceral and whole milk late at night...and that could have something to do with it.
The weight came off pretty easy with Ds and breastfeeding but it took almost a full year....hoping it does the same this time around. Thankfully this one will be born at the end of bathing suit season and not right before it like DS was
