I am 18 wks pregnant and have only gained 3 lbs, which has been gained in the past 2 wks. I know thats below average but no need to be concerned b/c everyone is different and blah blah but has anyone gained a lot of weight all in one month -like 10 or 15 lbs? What month does the baby begin to grow at a fast pace?

Yes, Yes, I gained 8 pounds by week 4 and 5 by week 9. A total of 13 pounds by week 9. Alot I mean alot.

This is my fifth. I'm 30 with a 16, 14, 10 & 5yr old. Is this your first Anne.

WOW! Yes, this is my first so I have no idea what to expect. I was real worried at first with no weight gain but told not to worry it will come, and now it has begun and I am just curious to see if I'll stay at 2-3 lbs a month or if I could be cushioned (as my b/f calls it) all at once.

I think there's a growth spurt again at right around 20 weeks, so Anne, you're probably on track. Erica, this is my 4th (viable) pregnancy, mine are 17, 16, and twin 14 y/o's. I've gained 13 lbs. and am 17 weeks. I'm only 4'11", I look 6 months already. My OB's nurse said that pet_te/smaller women gain weight faster, and can gain more weight, as the body wants to store the fat, build up the nutrient stores. Love that nurse! lol. I gained most of mine in the first 2 months (oddly enough when I could barely keep food down). I have another u/s next week, hopefully we'll see that the baby's gained at least SOME of that - here's to hoping!

Anne, I was told by my doctor just to be carefull and only gain 1 pound a week. So I'm being very carefull on what I eat. I'm staying away from fast foods, soda pop, juice, and doing alot of my own cooking.
