I went in for my monthly checkup and was shocked to see I gained 8 lbs(!!!!) from my previous checkup 4 weeks ago. Has anyone else seen this spike? I'm 25weeks 4 days now.

Dont feel bad, I have gained 10 lbs every 4 weeks for the ;ast 12 weeks. (Does that make sense?) So every time I have gone to the doctor I leave feeling like a big cow. I am eating more now that I am pregnant because before I was pregnant I would skip meals so I am guessing thats why but I dont like it and I have gained 45 lbs already and I am only 23 weeks this coming Monday.....

Hey Nita! That happened to me last month - I gained 8 lbs in 4 weeks as well. My doctor wasn't concerned at all and said I am right where I am supposed to be. I am 22 weeks. A friend of mine who is pregnant said she had a couple of months like that during the second trimester and now things have slowed down for her (only 2lbs at last months appointment). I know what you mean though - it is kind of scary!!! I am only 5'1 (weighed 114lbs pre pregnancy) - I am about 130 now already. I look like a little b___ter ball and I have 4 months to go!! Yikes!

Hey, I'm 25 weeks tomorrow and have gained 11 pounds so far. It's ok to gain 8 pounds in four weeks, your pregnant! My last appt. I gained 6 pounds in four weeks. As long as your doctor is alright with it and your not over weight, everything is ok. Good luck with everything!

I agree with Brittany, as long as your dr. is okay with it your fine.. I am 28wks and I have gained about 15 lbs so far. With my first child I had gained 32 lbs at 28 wks!

Hey i am 26 weeks and 5 days and i gained 7 lbs from my last appt... my next one is the 30th of this month! I started out at 109 lbs.. so if u were small when u started out then you need to gain more... thats what the doctor told me... he said my weight is undersontrol.. so dint worry!

I am 25 weeks and 4 days and have gained about 21 lbs so far. I am going to the dr. today, so I'll see if he thinks my weight gain is normal. I gained alot quickly there for a while but have slowed down a bit now, so I think everything is ok. Plus, it is all in my belly...I'm not gaining all over.

hey we all have our months mine was from 16 weeks to 21 weeks i gain like 8 pounds then. But dont think of it as I have gained that much weight think of it as wow the baby has had a growth spurt this month. just like after the baby is born different babies grow at different times.

I gained a total of 19 lbs by 25 weeks, 12 of which I gained in the last 5 weeks! I was shocked, because I did not feel like I gained that much. My doc looked at me reproachingly and noted that I gained 12 lbs since the last appointment. Have to say that I have been eating irresponsibly lately, so that probably is what caused this enormously quick gain. I even got a bit of stretch marks on my b___sts. I have switched to healthier, more resprictive diet, less fat, more fresh veggies and fruit, and no late night pigging out.... Will see what happens by my next appointment.

in the month of october and november (i was 6 and 7 months) I gained 10 pounds each month. My doctor says "what the hell are you doing to gain 20 lbs in 2 months" and i said "eating EVERY bag is discounted halloween candy that i can get my hands on" needless to say after that i had to do a food diary for every check up...!!

Emily - March 29

I am 27 weeks and I have gained a total of 15lbs. Kinda scary since I didn't gain any my first. I lost 60lbs wehn I gave birth. This time I am gaining. My doc isn't worreid as it has been steady and isn't too much. Just hope it all comes back off so easily as last time....
