Yeah, I've been having 2 week appointments for about a month now.

I've gained 9 lbs so far. I started out at 205 and I'm at 214 now. For my height and weight, I'm right on track. It says that at this point, considering my starting weight, I should be between 213 and 220. So I'm at the low end of that. It says that I should be gaining between .37 & .66 lbs per week for the rest of my pregnancy and that my end weight should be 216-225 lbs. I'm hoping not to go over 220.

When DD was born, I weighed 25 lbs less the day after. That's on the high side, I think most people lose between 12-15 lbs, depending on the size of the baby. I was also in labour for several days without eating or sleeping, so there was probably a little weight loss from that. I'm hoping that this time I lose about the same amount of weight from the birth, and hopefully I'll end up about 10 lbs lighter than my pre-pregnancy weight. A girl can dream, right?
