Hi ladies! I am 50 pounds overweight. I want to be as healthy during my pregnancy! I want to gain as little as possible. How much have you ladies gained? Are you being super careful with food choices? I have no intentions of dieting. But I do intend to eat as little processed foods as possible. Would love to hear your stories about this.

I am still below my pre preg weight at 30 wks. I was down a total of 13 lbs, then I gained back 1, then 3, then I lost 1. So I have gained back 3 lbs total. I have not been dieting. My body is just doing what it needs to I guess.

With my first daughter, I ended up gaining 65 lbs total. I definitely didn't diet.. but alot of that was water weight.

I am going to be super careful. I don't want to be depressed about my weight when I give birth. I want to focus on more important things!

I was overweight before pregnancy...and have found that by following the four basic food groups...while still enjoying treats every once and a while....i have managed to only gain 12 pounds so far....

Good Luck and Congratulations on the BFP!!!
