Im 32 wks and saw the doc today. Everything was great as far as baby heartbeat - 150, urine test - normal, blood pressure- normal, tummy measurement was 32, no swelling....... BUT holy cow my weight sky rocked the last two weeks. I gained 8 lbs in 2 wks. He wasn't concerned at all for the fact everything else looked good. I was curious if anyone had a jump in weight like this?

Don't worrie that happened to my cousin, the doctor said it was just a growth spurt.

hey. I'm in my 28th week. I had a big jump in weight as well. 5 kg in one month. so my doctor is worried that I may intollerant to sugars.. gestational diabetes.. I'll be going in for some tests tomorrow. they have me drink some sugary water, then take my blood every hour for a couple hours. hadnt even noticed the weight.. oh. and the baby is also large.. it isnt fat. it is just a big baby.. my weight gain may have contributed to the big baby.. I have to stop that! otherwise he wont be able to squeeze out!!

Hi Katie...I am 32 weeks and I go to the Dr. every week now due to preterm labor. Last week at my checkup I had put on 4 lbs in one week!!! I have gained 23 total so I didn't think it was that big a deal but he said he just didn't want it to be something that happened every week. Also I only gained 1/2 lbs the first few months and some not at all so it all evens out.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!! At my 32 week appt I gained 9 lbs in 2 weeks! I almost hit the floor. I was doing sooooo well, holding steady at a 30 lb weight gain for 2 months and then BOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy to hear that I am not the only one. I am tryiong to cut out all the sugar in my diet, but man it is hard. I WANT KRISPY CREAM!!!!!!

I just went to the doc's on tuesday, and I had gained 6 pounds in 10 days.... thats crazy. If I keep that up, I will be obese. I have 11 weeks left to go.

I went to the Dr this week and didnt ask I'm afraid to. at 24 weeks I had gained 18 pounds Im now 28 weeks and scared how this last trimester will be so I'm glad to hear the rest of you are doing the same.

At my doctors appt last week I had gained 8lbs in two weeks. I was at 147lb this morning i weighed 149 already. I ago again feb 24 and will be 36wks and probably at least 151lbs. I guess that happens in the last couple of weeks. So today at 34 almost 35wks I've gained a total of 39lbs-my doctor hasnt said anything but if he did I wouldnt care if I'm hungry I'll eat!!

Yes that just happened to me. I gained 6lbs in 2 weeks. The Dr. said to me its normal because the baby is the one who gained the weight, not us.

I'm 32 weeks now, and at my 30 wk appointment I had only gained 1 lb in a week, but the 2 weeks before that I gained 7 lbs, and the 3 weeks before that I gained another 7 lbs. I think sometimes we go through these growth spurts when the baby is getting a lot bigger. My dr. didn't seem concerned, she just said let's not have that happen every single appointment, and it hasn't since then.

I meant 1 lb in 2 weeks, not a week...

I'm 37 weeks and put on 4 1/2 lbs in 1 week. I wanted to cry! The nurse tried to tell me it was for a good cause....not very comforting I'm afraid. I'm hoping this doesn't happen every week until the very end, I've been doing so good until now!


Katie part2 of weight gain - February 17

thank you all for posting...ahhh I feel much better to know it's not just me...lol....but I thought I'd let all u know also that I had an US yesterday and she is 9 days ahead of what the expected LMP due date is, 4/13/06 where yesterdays US due date puts her at 4/4/06. I've been told and I'm aware that US can be off w/weight etc...but her measurements head, femur, foot, stomach, I could see her breathing in the US along w/some hair on her head too. She could just end up being a big baby and I go to 4/13/06 which would put her at or over 9 lbs...god help me!! She weighed 4lbs 12oz so I dunno...Im excited and shes healthy. The last 8 lbs I gained honestly I think it went all to her especially now after the US it confirms it. So all u girls that have had weight gain all the sudden, it's just our little ones growing!! Enjoy it while u can!! And maybe the fudgesicles and rice kripie treats didn't help..but shhhhhhhh!! :-) Take care and congrats to all u!!
