Where are you at now? (You don't have to post exact numbers if it makes you uncomfortable!) 131
How much have you gained so far? 17 lbs
How do you feel about it? UGH, but I want a healthy baby.
Assuming the "normal" (ha!) 1lb per week gain from this point on, how much total gain will you have? 28 lbs total putting me at 142 lbs.

I'm at 168lbs right now, which puts my total gain at 17lbs. I'm not super thrilled about it since it all came on so quickly, but I seem to be plateauing again right now. Assuming "normal" gain from this point on (11w6d left), I will be 180lbs by the time I deliver, which is a 29lb gain from my pre-pregnancy weight. That seems pretty reasonable.
As of yesterday, I'm at a 14-lb gain. So my total weight right now is 122. If I gain a pound/week, I'll end up at 135, which is a total gain of 27 lbs. I know in my head that this is perfect.
However, twice now I've had dreams of the beautiful, thin body that I used to have (3 years ago). In the dreams, I look down at my belly and it is so flat and lovely, and I feel so content, until I realize... WHERE'S THE BABY?! I panic for a moment, and then go back to admiring my abs.
So I know that in my heart, I'm struggling with the gain!
Where are you at now? I just weighed myself after drinking some water (doh!) and I am 163.8, i started between 155 and 159 How much have you gained so far? 5- 8 pounds How do you feel about it? not bad at all! Assuming the "normal" (ha!) 1lb per week gain from this point on, how much total gain will you have? with 13 more weeks left I would gain a total of 18 to 21 pounds if I make it to 40 weeks. That isn't to bad!

As of right now, I have gained 23 pounds total. I know that is on the high side, but I have been eating pretty healthy and staying active, so I don't think it is terrible. I will prob end up gaining 35 or so lbs total, depending on when she gets here and what happens on Thanksgiving
