I am currently 25 weeks and I have already gained about 35 lbs. I am not even eating that much ( I mean I am holding back somewhat, I could be doing more damage) ha ha

I am 18 weeks and have gained ~ 8 lbs. I think that is too little right?

It depends on your pre pregnancy wt. I am over weight and I am 21 weeks now and I have gained only 3 pounds. But my gynec says its ok as the baby is growing properly.But from now on have to gain weight gradually at least 15 #. Its important only after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

I am happy to say three of those pounds I gained were from this week alone. Ha ha. I have been such a pig!

I am currently 22 weeks and have gained 12 pounds. Glad to see I'm normal and not gaining too quickly. It's so depressing getting on the scale at the doctors office.

I am almost at my 5 months, a few days short, and I have gained 6 pounds.I feel the same as E, that seems like too little!!

Im almost 15 weeks (14wks 5 days) and have gained 4-5lbs depending on the time of day. I dont have a scale at home. Your doctor should have accessed you at your first OB appointment by your pre-preg. weight, height and stature for appox. how much weight would be healthy for you to gain. Im 5'6.5" and pre preg. 125lbs. I gained 33lbs with DS but was also 5-7lbs heavier pre-preg starting at 130-132ish. He weighed 8lbs 11oz and by the time I left the hospital (besides my hips being stretched still) I had lost all but 5lbs. I had a pamplet that showed how much everything in your body weighed that contributed to weight gain but cannot find it. I beleive it said water weight 3lbs, baby 7lbs, placenta 5lbs Here is a calculator I found for weight gain estimation. http://www.paternityangel.com/Preg_info_zone/Weight/CalcWeight.htm According to it I should be 3-7lbs heavier then I am now. Average weight gain is 25-35lbs Overweight person 15-25lbs Underweight person 28-40lbs

I've added 16lbs to my 5'5" frame in 24weeks. Before I was pregnant, I never fluctuated up or down in weight by more than 2lbs, it's so weird carrying the extra now. My BMI was at 19 for my pre-pregnancy weight so I guess I'm not to off the scale. My BMI is still at 22 and I have to hit 26 for it to be unhealthy but, that's for a women who ISN'T pregnant so I figure I'm okay.

I am 25 weeks pregnant and have gained 25 lbs. My doctor makes it seem like I'm the most overweight person in the world. I don't think 25 lbs is too much for almost 6 and a half months. I don't eat unhealthy but he makes it seem like I'm eating a gallon of ice cream a day. I'm glad others are gaining just as much weight as I am.

I am a little over 16 weeks and have only gained about 3 pounds. This is my third child, I'm small framed, and I'm pretty sure I should have gained a little bit more weight than that. Everything seems to be going ok now though.

 

Julie - November 3

I am almost 25 weeks pregnant and have gained 20 pounds. My nurse was very inconsiderate on the day my husband was w/me and she said, do you want me to bring your husband back here so he can see your weight ha-ha !! I wanted to kick her 5'0 100lb body across the room !

 

Cat - November 3

I am 15 weeks and have gained about 8-9 lbs i think. I am 5'9 and was a size 8 when I got pregnant. it seems primarily just in my stomach and b___sts but is that too much?

 

Jess - November 4

I am 23 wks and at my last appt (21 1/2 wks) I gained a total of 5 lbs. The doctor said it was fine because I was overweight when it all began. She only wants me to gain 15-25lbs total. I did lose weight in the beginning. Just don't really have an appet_te, but when I do eat, I try to eat on the healthy side.

 

Sapphire - November 15

I'm 25 weeks and have gained 27 pounds! I couldn't believe it when she told me. I was so depressed! I had gone on a diet right before I got pregnant and had lost twenty pounds, so I guess I gained all those pounds back and then some.

 

Jenny L - November 15

I'm almost 20 weeks and I am fluctuating up and down the same 3 pounds. I eat 6 small meals a day (every 3 hours) to keep my blood sugar stable. I think that is what is helping me not to gain too much weight too quickly.
