with my dd, I gained a crazy amount of weight - most of it (weirdly) from about 28 weeks on but seriously I was freaking my doctor out cause it was like 3-4lbs/week and even though I swear I wasn't eating different or anything. A lot turned out to be fluid retention, but we didn't really know that until after baby was born and in the 10 days after I lost a ton of weight quickly. This pregnancy has been totally different weight gain wise (still doing exact same thing as I did with DD eating wise) and as of last apt I was only up 10lbs total.

I truly believe that sometimes weight gain is completely out of your control - if you're eating reasonably well, trying to walk a bit or light exercise, you've done what you can and try not to stress the amount you're gaining...if you BP is fine & baby is growing at normal rate, then this weight gain is perfectly healthy and what (apparently) your body needs during pregnancy (((HUGS)))
