With my first I lost a stone in my the first 3 months and only gained a stone (14lb) by the time my daughter was born. This time due to continuing sickness I have lost 21pounds and im 25 weeks 5 days. I was overweight to start with. The midwife doesn't seem worried and baby is very active so im just eating as much as I can when I can and trying not to worry

I was 165lbs to start and had really bad nausea the first 4 months and wasn't eating much as a result. The work I do is also very physical so with the combination of those 2 things, I'm 37 weeks and at 176lbs now. So that means I've gained 11lbs, but I'm sure I lost weight in the beginning, so... ha. Guess I'll know postpartum how much I actually weigh.

I was 140lbs before baby and now at 16 weeks I'm still 140lbs. My OB isn't overly concerned. I've just been disinterested in food, even though my morning sickness is mostly gone.

I'm a little worried, I was 130 pounds when i went in for my first doctors appointment at 6 weeks and since then ive gained and lost a total of 5 pounds. I am now 17 weeks and only 131 pounds. is this normal? Like i definately have the baby bump but any weight i gain i lose within a few days. im wondering if i should speak with my doctor about this next week?

With my first I gained about 20 lbs. So far in this pregnancy (17 weeks) I have already gained 7 lbs. With my first I was never hungry really and this time I can't get enough to eat. I have always had trouble gaining weight and have always been underweight so I'm hoping this time I will pack on a few extra and maybe keep them afterwards.

...I started out at 96 lbs. and now weigh 122! The doctor said normally I've gained my quota for a full pregnancy but because I was so small to begin with it's ok!

Im 35 weeks and I started at 140 now im 190. I dont really know where it all is cause Im not huge. My belly has always measured at exactly how many weeks I am. I only gained 12lbs in the 1st and 2nd trimester then just started putting it on without even really noticing. My boobs did grow 3 cup sizes so I figure they are 10lbs a piece lol

I'm 32 weeks along. Started at 140 lbs, and I weigh around 165 now. They say you're supposed to gain 25-35 pounds overall if you start at a healthy weight, so it sounds like you're doing great :)

I am 33 weeks pregnant and I have lost a total of about 20 pounds. I weighed 222 to start, my doctor said since I was overweight at the beginning it is okay that I lose a little weight. So, I haven't gained a pound, but a huge belly that's for sure!

I gained about 60 lbs with my first born son and I have gained so far with my daughter 45lbs. I am 5'8 and weighted 165. My son was 9lbs 3oz. So I tend to have big babies, but this is my last one and I will be back to working it off. I am 32 weeks now.

Started out at 60 kg, 94.2 kg now, at 34 weeks, 1 day... Expecting triplets, though... :) Scheduled for a C-section on May 3....

Oh man, the weight gain! I have done the best this pregnancy compared to my last two. I started at 147 and am now at 160 and I am 35 weeks, but my first two boys I gained 30 lbs both times and it was so hard to get that weight off. You are totally normal right now. Just watch out because the last 5 weeks that weight packs on like crazy!!

My first pregnancy I gained 30 lb. I started at 130 and ended at 160. This pregnancy I lost 11 lbs and haven't gained anything. So I guess each pregnancy is different.

[deleted account]

When I started out I weight 143 lbs., right before I delivered I was 187 lbs. and that's on a 4'11 frame. At my first doctor's appointment (after baby) I was 159 lbs. and at the second one a couple of weeks later I was down to 153 lbs. I am working out now so I am not sure what I am because I haven't weighed myself.. I am working on getting back down to 115-125 which is my normal weight.. So I think you are pretty normal as far as your weight..

At the 30 weeks most articles say you should gain between 18-26 lbs depending on your body structure. Im at 29 weeks and have gained 28 lbs approx. A lady I know who is 24 weeks has gained 38lbs so far so. It all depends on how active you are and how you eat to be honest. As long as you hopefully aren't craving the fast food or anything too horrible you should be ok if you do some excercise. And like most other women have mentioned you will lose it after the baby is born if you work hard enough on it and breastfeeding does help that.

I'm 27 weeks & since the beginning of my pregnancy I've lost 15 pounds. So I've been trying to gain that back. As of my last doctors appt I'm one pound away from my original weight but I'm sure I've gained @ least 4 pounds now...

I started out 145 and was at 175 at week 35. Now I'm 38 weeks and I've gained five pounds each week for the past three weeks (AAAHHH!!!!) but my doctor said that it's mostly fluid retention since I haven't changed my eating or excercise habits much.

You do burn calories with breastfeeding but you also have to eat more calories than you would if you weren't breastfeeding. It bothers me that people say breastfeeding is a good way to lose weight because for some women it is but for others it can be what keeps them from losing those last ten pounds.

I think you're very healthy! A total healthy weight gain for pregnant women (who were not obese starting out with) is anywhere from 25-35 lbs. I am currently 36 weeks pregnant. I started out at 148 lbs, and I am about 179 lbs today (it fluctuates with constipation, bloating, etc). So, I've gained so far about 31 lbs, which is still healthy, but I have 4 more weeks! I'm hoping not to gain more than 4 lbs, but that's probably not going to happen. LoL. I'm not worried, though, as I plan on working hard to burn it off afterwards. I'll also be breastfeeding, which can burn about 500 additional calories a day, and helps one's uterus to shrink back down to normal size in like half the time,

It really all depends on you and your body before you were pregnant Im 36wks pregnant and only gained 15 lbs through out the whole time but also i was already 21o at my start rate and my doc said Im not to gain no more than 20 - 25lbs at the most when you're skinnier you're allowed to gain more plus it depends on wat you're eating and if its healthy or not and if you're still active because I also eat healthy and only recent have i stopped working out plus Im still working as a dog trainer so talk to your doc if you are concerned

Im 25 weeks and started at 142 and now 162 so i gained 20 lbs so far. So i should end up like 40-45 lbs from the whole pregnancy, Everyone is different. I know ppl that gained 40 and never lost it and ppl that gained 75 and lost it all.

With my first pregnancy I was 120 or 125 I cant rember I have always flucuated between the two. Then after I gave birth, the day I went home I weighed 175lbs, so around 50 lbs. Then I went down to 150 lbs (didnt get off that last 25 lbs!!) and I am 27 weeks today and at 178, so only about 23 lbs so far. With being a first time mom I didnt get ahold of the nursing very well, but plan on doing it for the long haul this second time around and I know that nursing is said to help with the weight loss. So with that on top of walking, and yoga I am really hoping that I will be able to be pre-pregnancy weight agiain.
My first daughter was 9 lbs 8oz, and I am soo scared and excited to see how much this next one weighs!!
