I actually gained 10 lbs after I delivered . Breast feeding made me hungry and tired so all I did was eat and lay around. After I stop b___st feeding I lost 50lbs.

i gained 34 pounds with my first pregnancy, i am 7 months now and i have gained 23 pounds so far so i will definetly go over the 35 pounds. the thing is i dont eat any differently i actually eat less than before i was pregnant i dont know why im gaining the way i am even my nurse said i was gaining to much and looked straight at me and tried her best to tell me to stop gaining but i told her i dont hardly eat that much what am i supposed to do. this is all to do with the pregnancy and hormones. im all belly!

I gained 45 lbs. with Baby #1 and 14 lbs. with Baby #2 and both babies weighed the exact same at birth, down to the ounce. Pretty neat trick, huh?! :) The key is to eat right and exercise for me. I felt MUCH better the second time around. I just did myself NO favors by gaining so much weight without exercising the first time. Our mothers' generation was told not to gain more than 20 lbs. Folks are getting bigger and bigger as time goes by and now the limit is up to 35 lbs. If you eat right and exercise, your body will take care of gaining the weight it needs to support you and your baby. Good luck!
