I feel like I am way, way over my mark. I started at 156lbs, and I am 5'7. Ideally, I should have only gained 25 to 35lbs. I'm 29 weeks and I have gained 40! I was 196 at the doctor's today :-( I'm worried that I may gain up to sixty, or more. Is there anything I can do to slow my weight gain a little? I drink a ton of water, and I really don't eat horribly, or any different than I did before I was pregnant. If anything I eat healthier, just more often. More fruit, more salad etc. Or is it just going to happen no matter what? Maybe I'm eating too many Oreos? I just feel gigantic.
I've found going for a walk every day has helped a lot. I eat pretty consistently healthy, but if I don't get a little activity I start packing on the pounds. But everyone's different
I started at 163 and I'm 5'10. At 28 weeks up 10 pounds, hoping to stay under 25 total this preg. I work in maternal/infant research, out of curiosity I ran the average weight gain for all mothers in our state (last 5 years)- it was 30 pounds.
Here's to healthy moms and babies- sounds like everyone is doing great!
