I am 15 w 4 d, and I think I've gained about 8 pounds so far. But I have a full-time, on-my-feet-and-moving-8 hours a day job. I am sure once the doctors put me on restriction, I will pack on the pounds, and fast!

I haven't gained anything yet.I actually lost a few pounds at last months appointment,i imagine things will be different at next weeks appointment though because i'am really getting huge!

I honestly wouldn't worry about the weight,as long as you and the babies are healthy that's all that matters.

Lost 15lb my first trimester then gained 40lbs(mostly from 14-28wks) - so I guess than means 55lbs. I wouldn't worry about gaining a lot in the first/second trimester - its hard to gain in the 3rd trimester - I hardly gained anything in the last couple of weeks - no room to eat and be able to breathe. As long as your diet is healthy - I think 30lbs is just fine

My doc wanted me to gain 25 pounds in 20 weeks if I could, and I gained 24. I'm now 34 weeks, and I've gained about 50 pounds total. The gaining has pretty much stopped, because I don't eat much anymore -- if I do gain weight, I know it is completely due to water retention. I was fit to begin with and my doc has never really stressed about the amount I've been gaining.

I think I only gained about 10 in the first 20 weeks and then managed to pack on another 10 in the following few weeks. I'm up 25 right now and have been the last few weeks. The babies seem healthy, so no one is bugging me about the weight right now. I'm eating a lot most days, just in small amounts at a time.

I gained 33. I was actually shooting for 40-45 per my OB. But I don't think I gained any in the last 3 weeks or so. Do you think any of it was fluid retention? Or did you eat right before your appt?

Shawna, just be careful what you're eating (coughmoviepopcorncough) you should be eating healthy stuff if you're not able to eat too much. I ONLY say this because of all the weight you just lost.

I have no idea what my final count was, but I think it was somewhere around 30lbs.
