How far along are you??
28 weeks tomorrow
how much weight have you gained so far?
I have a OB appointment tomrrow and I have a feeling I have gained a ouind or two in the last two weeks, but as of my last appointment I was still down 3 pounds since getting pregnant.
did the doc give you a max amout of weight to gain?
Nope, it has never been discussed, probably because I have not been gaining weight but the baby is measuring right on target.
do you have a goal?
I would like to gain no more than 15

Hi Ladies,
You guys are doing great! Me - not so much. I was with my family dr. until 20 wks and he was very pleased with how things were going and gave me a target gain between 20-30 lbs. No problem at all. I got switched to the doc thats delivering and he ia weight crazy (even if you are not plus sized) and my weight shot up. I am 38wks and I have gained a shocking 50lbs. I am ok with it and know I will have lots of work to do afterward. I must say I actually look pretty ###### good!! I really can't explain the large weight gain seeing as I have strict orders from my dr to cut out bread, fruit and that it was ok for me to be hungry.
I think I answered all the questions.
Erin

This is the only time I have been able to lose weight without trying. I think it is from stopping drinking beer and starting to drink water! I am now 31w and 1 d and still down 3lbs. The baby weighs about 3 lbs so I consider myself down 6 lbs. (I will take every pound I can get! lol) I keep telling my OB that I am going to have the baby and then pack on 15 pounds! lol

I'm 30 weeks today and am down 20 lbs pre pregnancy weight. If I knew this was what it took to lose weight, I would have done it a long time ago.

I'm at 18 weeks and up 2 lb. None of the docs/nurses have said anything about a weight gain goal or limit. I'm hoping to keep it to 15-20. I'm about 60 lb overweight to start.
