2. Are you concerned about weight gain or don't really mind it?
I think it is wonderful since I gained 50 lbs with all of my past pregnancies

3. What's your plan to get back in shape afer baby?
Probably just walking more. I have the option to walk a lot at work.

4. What's one thing you are enjoying about your body right now (other than the growing baby!)?
Not having to shave as much, lol. My hair growth has seriously slowed down

Oh I was 185 before pregnancy and I was 196 at my appt last friday. I almost forgot the numbers, lol.

1. How much have you gained? started at 155 and at my last appointment I was 173

2. Are you concerned about weight gain or don't really mind it? Concerned, not really because of the pregnancy, but when I me my DH 4 years ago, I was a fit 120. I had to go on an anti-depressant after my twins and it really packed the weight on me and I have never been able to loose it.
3. What's your plan to get back in shape after baby? Body by Vi (my DH is a member), and I want to bike or run again
4. What's one thing you are enjoying about your body right now (other than the growing baby!)? Maddie is the only thing, I am officially huge, I waddle everywhere, dont enjoy DTD , and can't sleep comfortably.

1. How much have you gained? I started out at 120, down to 110 and up to 114. So either still -6 or +4 depending how you look at it.
2. Are you concerned about weight gain or don't really mind it? nope. I'm more worried about making sure I DO gain.
3. What's your plan to get back in shape after baby? Since we will probably be living in an apartment at that point I plan on hitting up their gym as much as possible and doing some Jillian's during the day. I'm making DH promise to help me with it.
4. What's one thing you are enjoying about your body right now (other than the growing baby!)? Not having a flabby tummy and my boobs are pretty awesome too. Even if they don't fit in my bras anymore.

1. How much have you gained? 18 pounds - Started at 154, now weigh 172.

2. Are you concerned about weight gain or don't really mind it? A little concerned, as I have always struggled with weight issues/body image.

3. What's your plan to get back in shape after baby? We'll take baby to gym with us and I'll do a lot of walking around the track, and then I'll make hubby take a turn doing the walking while I hit the weights for a while!

4. What's one thing you are enjoying about your body right now (other than the growing baby!)? Umm...nothing. Most of my body sucks.

1. How much have you gained? I started at about 130, and am about 150 now

2. Are you concerned about weight gain or don't really mind it? Not really concerned, just learning how to navigate with the extra girth! DH is concerned I'm going to blow out the seams to all the clothes I'm borrowing from him

3. What's your plan to get back in shape after baby? Breastfeed, walk around town a lot, smaller portions, maybe. I will probably buy a band to suck it in for a little while. Re-register for the gym.

4. What's one thing you are enjoying about your body right now (other than the growing baby!)? I like the big ol' bump! It's kind of neat, very weird looking. I like my bigger boobs, and my nice hair and nails.

Started out 155, about 175 now.

2. Are you concerned about weight gain or don't really mind it? No, annoyed though. I'm a hungry pig these days.

3. What's your plan to get back in shape after baby? 30 Day Shred and a jogging stroller will be my buddies.

4. What's one thing you are enjoying about your body right now (other than the growing baby!)? Eek. My nails are nice, I guess.

1. How much have you gained? 6.6lbs
2. Are you concerned about weight gain or don't really mind it?Not at all this time around
3. What's your plan to get back in shape after baby?I have a gym membership...and I plan on using it. lol I'd also like to get back into rock climbing and running

1. How much have you gained? Only 6lbs. I was 145 pre-pregnancy and I'm up to 151.

2. Are you concerned about weight gain or don't really mind it? Not really concerned, my Dr. told me he wanted me to 10lbs by 27 weeks. I'm thinking that might happen because I've been eating like a hog (it seems)


3. What's your plan to get back in shape after baby? When I pumped and breastfed my daughter I lost 55lbs in 6 weeks. I'm not kidding, nor did I want to loose it that fast or plan that. I'm not banking on the same results but I'll start there. I started doing 5k's 6 months after my daughter was born, so probably just walking religiously again will be my starting point.


4. What's one thing you are enjoying about your body right now (other than the growing baby!)? My belly is a ball and my boobs are out of control and my face is soo clear, so I would have to say my face (acne free) is what I like about my body right now but DH likes my enlarged chest area.

1. I started at 148 and am now 156, so 8 lbs. (although I lost 8 in 1st trimester, so you could say 16)
2. No, everyone keeps telling me how great I look, it's hard to feel bad about that.
3. No real plan, BF and walking
4. I'm really proud of my body right now! I'm sore as heck, but I feel like a cute pregnant lady most of the time.

Started out at 101 now I am 118

1. How much have you gained? 17 pounds
2. Are you concerned about weight gain or don't really mind it? Well at 5'4'' I am pretty underweight when not pregnant so my logical brain says that the weight gain is healthy and needed BUT i will be honest and say I still struggle with it emotionally
3. What's your plan to get back in shape after baby? I will eat mostly healthy and do crossfit 5 days a week. I'm not someone who loses right away. It took me a year (until I stopped breastfeeding) to lose all the weight with Sawyer.
4. What's one thing you are enjoying about your body right now (other than the growing baby!)? I like my bump.

1. How much have you gained? I started at 120 and am at 142, mean scale! I gained 5 lbs over vacation last week.

2. Are you concerned about weight gain or don't really mind it? I don't really mind it, there's nothing really I can do about it right now!

3. What's your plan to get back in shape after baby? Bfing. I'm hoping it works as well this time as it did last time! In my first pg I started out at 135 and I know I got to atleast 170... after bfing, I ended up down at 115 at my lowest point. Walking too!

4. What's one thing you are enjoying about your body right now (other than the growing baby!)? Not having to shave my legs so much and I like the bump most of the time!

4. What's one thing you are enjoying about your body right now (other than the growing baby!)? I have boobs again! I was a solid C before I got pregnant and had DD. After I weaned her they shrank to a B.

1. How much have you gained? I've gained 12 pounds (not saying what I was or am now!).
2. Are you concerned about weight gain or don't really mind it? I'm not worried about gaining weight at the moment because I am pregnant. Unfortunately I had already put on 25 pounds the year and a half prior to getting pregnant from not being able to exercise with the out of control asthma.
3. What's your plan to get back in shape after baby? At the moment there isn't a plan. My asthma has gotten so bad there wont be a plan unless my doctors can help me find out whats going on and how to get it under control. If that happens, then I imagine I could lose the weight by getting back into my activities of hiking, backpacking, etc. We use to be pretty active, well DH still is, but I would like to go back to joining him.
4. What's one thing you are enjoying about your body right now (other than the growing baby!)? I love the baby bump!! And it's amazing feeling baby girl kicking around more and more every day. Other than that not liking the uncontrollable farting and pee leaks, gas, acid reflex, burping, waddling, pregnancy-induced-dementia (AKA prego brain). So not very graceful or lady-like right now .

1. How much have you gained? Started at 127, now at about 146, although it fluctuates quite a bit
2. Are you concerned about weight gain or don't really mind it? - not loving it, but it's bothering me less than I thought it would - I've always been self-consious about my stomach, but now, I am embracing it. No need to hide a healthy bump!
3. What's your plan to get back in shape after baby? - continue being active
4. What's one thing you are enjoying about your body right now (other than the growing baby!)? - hmmm. not coming up with anything, I guess that most of my weight gain is staying in my midsection

1. I started at 127, lost about 5 pounds, and am now up to 139, so +12 pounds
2. I'm on track for gaining the right amount of weight, but I started my first pregnancy around 115 and I'm already heavier now than when I gave birth to my daughter. I actually now outweigh my husband I'm more concerned about getting back in shape afterwards.
3. None. I have had a lot of trouble finding time to exercise with one little kid, so I'm not sure how I will find time with two.
4. Boobs.
