Im 20, on my second pregnancy, I normally weigh 120. My first pregnancy I gained 40 pounds which was ok, now I am almost 7 months and have gained 30 pounds already! I am gaining 10 pounds a month, and I can't make it stop. Does anyone else have this problem? How can I make it stop?

Every pregnancy gains differently. My first I gains only 8 lbs, my second 35 lbs, and my third 30 lbs. Eat healthy is all I can say. No frozen food and sweets, haha. It's doesn't matter how much you gain as long as you are eating healthy.

I agree with Josie as long as you are eatting healthy there is nothing to worry about. With my girls I gained 50+ lbs, but with my boy I only gained 25Lbs. All three pregnancys I ate the same types of foods.

I had this problem. I was about 115 before I got prego and I gained like 60 pounds while I was pregnant. Luckily, I've lost most of it. What are you eating? Try eating healthy stuff. I know it's hard, I was sick for like the first 4 months so I don't even know how I gained that much.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Well, lol I eat pretty bad actually, a lot of sweats and frozen food. I am going to try and eat better and a lot less!! I didn't notice how bad I was eating until yesterday I wrote down everything I ate that day, and OMG. Horrible. With my mom she was pregnant with me and gained 45, then with my brother she gained 65. I could be following her path I suppose.
