I was 70kgs when I fell pregnant with my first and gained 13 kgs, then lost 20kgs after the birth. I fell pregnant again when my son was 5 and a half months old (so I was 63kgs at conception) and have gained about 14kgs this time, I am due in 4 days.

Don't stress about weight, unless you feel it is unnatural and then see your doctor. It will come and go, the main thing you should focus on is your beautiful baby! They don't care how big or little you are!

I gained 20kgs, not sure what that is in pounds. But they recommend between 15-20kgs is about the average weight gain for most women. I think i have already lost half of that and my baby girl is only 12 days old. Try not to stress too much about weight, just don't over indulge and try to eat as healthy as possible. If you worry too much about your weight you will end up going insane!! =)

I'm 31 weeks. I lost 4 lbs at first, then gained those back and an additional 9. Not too bad, I think! Plus, my hubby seems to think that the rest of me is slimming down and just the baby is gaining weight - not that I mind!

I gained 32 pounds when I was pregnant. But I gained all mine when I was between 4 and 6 months. My doctor was not happy with me at all. But When I was 8 months I stoped gainning weight maybe a 2 pounds here or there. My 9th months I started to lose a little or just stayed the same. Dont worry as long as your eating right and taking care of your self dont worry about the weight. Good Luck

I went from 184 on Jenny Craig up to 246 by the end of my pregnancy. I blame coming off a year of REALLY strict dieting into pregnancy cravings. I was losing the weight so I could have a healthier pregnancy so it worked in that sense.



The month before I found out I was pregnant I binged and binged and didn't gain any weight but got heck for not sticking to my diet. I wish I could say I've lost the weight since, but I cannot afford to go back on Jenny Craig (children are expensive).



My warning is if you were dieting try and keep in touch with your weightloss coach while you're pregnant. I fell right off the wagon into a BIG bucket of Skittles and Chicken Nuggets!

ETA: I start off semi underweight so 35 is whats recommended for me :)
