If you have any other children, how much did you gain before labor?

Current gain: - 24lbs
Current week: 29w2d

Past pregnancy (2nd) -15lbs at 38w1d
- baby weighing 8lbs 12 oz
- i lost alot to start with and then toward the end started to gain but never got up to more than i was in the beginning.
Past pregnancy (1st) 10lbs at 36w6d
- baby weighing 8lbs 3oz
- stayed pretty much the same the whole first time but in the end i ended up having gained 10

Truthfully i am happy about loosing weight because i have a few pounds to loose anyways and it does not seem to be hurting the baby at all - the doctor said that as long as i continue to eat right and drink lots of water it shouldnt matter weather or not i gain or loose!

Despite my lack of weight gain my daughter came out at 7lbs 7oz. So I'm not worried about this one really at all.

I've gained 11 pounds and am 29 weeks tomorrow. I am over weight though by way too much so as little as possibe would be nice but I guess we'll see. As long as my boy is healthy I don't care.

I am 30 weeks and have gained 5 lbs. Though everyone keeps looking at me and saying I look like I'm about to pop. My 7 year old has even told me I will be a big beautiful pumpkin for Halloween :)

I am 28w1d, and I have gained 18 pounds. I will only go to 37 weeks (planned induction because of a condition) so I think I should be about 30 total (maybe 25?), which is about what I gained with the other 2. I am very thin, so the doctor says even 40-45 is good for me, but there is just no way. I eat non-stop but I don't see 40 pounds happening. My other babies were 7 pounds, 2 ounces (at 39w) and 6 pounds, 15 ounces (at 37w).

Too much! Haha. I'm 28w3d now, and I've gained 26lbs so far as of my appointment two weeks ago. I consistently gained 39lbs with my past pregnancies, but I feel out of control with this baby. All I want to do is eat! My girls were 8lbs at 40w3d and 8lbs 6oz at 39w4d.
I've been trying to find some healthier low calorie recipes online and found a few good ones at that my family will eat, too... hopefully that will keep me from going too overboard without feeling like I'm starving.

I am 30w1d but I don't own a scale so I will go my last appt.

Week: 27w4d

Weight gained 25lbs.

I'm also very petite and I was very stressed and underweight when I got pregnant. I actually weighed 2-3lbs less at the start of this pregnancy than my last. My hubby definitely sees the 25lbs but people who don't know me well think I'm tiny for 30weeks.

With my daughter I gained exactly 40lbs and delivered at 39w2d and she weighed 7lbs even. I was told at 19 weeks that it looked like this baby will be bigger, we will see :)

current gain: 16 lbs.
current week: 26w5d
past pregnancy: 40 lbs. at 36w2d

my doctor would like to see me gain the same amount of weight as with the first..i seem to be having trouble (probably due to having a very active 4 1/2 year old boy ) but it looks like i have already gained more than some of the moms here so im not to worried now ;)
