I'm 26 weeks in two days and as of my last weigh in (Sunday) I am up 9-10 pounds I think. I'm quite surprised that I've managed to put anything on honestly with all the time my face spends in the bucket :/ but I can't tell if it's good or bad. I was at a nice and healthy weight to begin with but my midwife isn't fussed about my weight gain so far so I'm happy! Baby is already two pounds so I don't feel too bad
I am 27 weeks (I think? I can't remember ANYTHING this pregnancy!) and I am up 4 pounds from my pre pregnancy weight, but up 12 pounds total because I was so sick in the beginning and lost some weight before I started gaining.
Megan, mom of:
DD ~ September 2005
DS ~ October 2007
At week 26 I was up almost 25lbs and then lost a couple of pounds by week 28. I'm almost at 30 weeks and its about the same as last weigh-in, so 22-23lbs total. Weight went on fast in first two trimesters because I was thin to start with, but is slowing now. Baby is measuring about a week ahead as of last US and according to fundal height. I'm pretty active, eat well and still working with a trainer 2x a week so hopefully it's "healthy" weight. I'm ok with putting on 1bs a week for the next 10 weeks as that would put me up about 30-35lbs for the while pregnancy, which for my height (5'9") my Dr. said is fine. I was freaking about it for a while but now I'm just trying to enjoy this crazy, totally uncomfortable, unpredictable ride!
I have gained about 25 lbs so far! I started around 130 and now weigh 155.
I wish I could be one who only gained 25 lbs total, but I always gain around 35-40 lbs so I'm right on track.
I'm prepared to look 6 months pregnant at my 6 week PP appointment. I always do. It takes me a while to get un-pregnant looking but after my guts go back to their places I should be able to lose the baby weight with a little effort.
Mom to Titus (12), Isaiah (10), Noelle (8), Joel (6), Hannah (4), Elijah (1), and baby due Nov 4!
Thanks for the link! I put in my info and I am right on track. Me and my "obese" self

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy
Feels like someone hit me with a bowling ball repeatedly in my crotch.
This. I'm glad it's not just me.
I'm 27 weeks and still down a pound or two from pre-pregnancy. It varies a bit, but I feel good about it. I had a lot of extra before I got pregnant (like, 30 pounds), so I'm hoping to keep the gain to a minimum. That said, I'm not really eating very well. I haven't had an awful sweet tooth, but if it's a carb, it's my best friend.
