Rapid Weight Gain

ash - October 24

During the first trimester of my pregnancy I did not gain any weight until 20 weeks. I was 115 pre pregnancy and had gained 5 pounds by week 20. Now I am 26 weeks and have gained 19 lbs altogether. In the past week and a half I have gained 7 lbs...I have heard you gain about a pound a week during the last three months, but I am gaining alot more, could it be water retention or something else??

Are you eating a lot more? Are your ankles swollen? It could be a lot of different things, does your doctor know?

sounds normal to me. Sometimes it happens in spurts like that. In all of my pregnancies I never gained weight evenly.

It might be normal, but it might be a symptom of pre-ecclampsia. I gained 16 pounds in 3 weeks, and was diagnosed with pre-ecclampsia. I ended up having to be induced. Ask your doctor.
