I am confused on my weight. I have gained 18lbs so far at 25 weeks, but everyone that sees me is like "your due in what Jan? Feb?" I say late Nov/Dec and they are like eat something! Your too little for 6 months. I feel like a cow though already, but I am carrying eveything in front. My hips/boobs/butt/legs/arms are all the same as before pregnancy just have this beach ball belly. So I think it has to do with how we carry as well.
Does anybody know, on average, how much weight you should gain if you want to be your pre-pregnancy weight after all the fluids are gone?
Hmm, I think my mom gained about 20 pounds each pregnancy and it was all gone in 2 weeks after each of us were born, so maybe around there? I gained 30 the first pregnancy and it was gone in 5 weeks but a good 5-10 pounds of that was water weight from edema though.
