Don't beat yourself up too hard. It will come off Just make the best food choices you can and do whatever exercise you can manage and I truly wouldn't worry too much! Hang in there

I have two weights that I go by. I gained 20lbs with IVF so before IVF I was at 130 when our 2nd back to back cycle worked I was around 150...I did drop down to 145ish for a couple of days but then I was super hungry all the time obviously from it working haha. I am now up to 181. So that's about 31lbs. Doc says thats not bad for twins...but I am gaining a little too much with the rate I'm going.

I'm 5'4" and 130 was a good average weight for me. I would have liked to have been in better shape not so much a lower number though. I hope to get back down to 130 eventually but I will be happy if I can drop below 140.

I gained 15 within the first few weeks so I was freaking out for a while, but I've managed to gain only a pound a week now for quite some time. I've put on 26lbs so far which was the amount I gained during my whole first pregnancy, but I'm okay as long as I don't gain more than 35 total. I'm right on track for that and I feel perfectly healthy. My midwives are really casual about weight gain. They don't even weigh at appointments, they just ask you to do it yourself.

I was up 20 pounds at 27 1/2 weeks. I was overweight to begin with, so I will definitely gain over the 15-25 pounds that is recommended. My doc has not said a word about my weight gain, so I'm not too worried. I have gained more weight that I wanted to, though.

I started at 168lbs(my scale) and I'm 5'10. I am now 180lbs and will be 27 weeks Friday. 6 of my 12lbs I gained in a month.
With dd I started @140-145lbs and delivered at like 180-185lbs.
I think with dd they wanted me to gain 25-35 so I wasn't far off. This time they did not say what thet wanted me gain. I know I would be happy if I didn't go over 200 however I don't watch what I eat and I don't exercise. With dd I ate really healthy and exercised all the time and I still was a house so this time I'm just enjoying being pregnant!

26 weeks and I have gained 25 lbs. my OB and I haven't discussed weight gain. I weighed 130 before getting pregnant and was on the low end of the scale for body fat %. I am well behind where I was at this point with B. I estimate I will end up with approx. 38-40 lb gain

I'm 5'11" and started at 145. At my last appointment last month I was up 7 lbs, but I would guess it is closer to 10 now that I'm 26 weeks. My midwives never gave me a range or have said anything about my gain. I did ask at 18 weeks when I had only gained a pound. It was brushed off since the baby's size and growth was good. I gained around 40 lbs with my first, 26 with my second. We'll see where I end up. I'm not worried since I am still exercising and will get back to exercising at my normal rate around 6 weeks pp. It helps being tall too- my weight spreads out nicely

I started out at 135 and weighed in at 150 at 25 weeks. I refuse to weigh myself anytime other than at the dr when I'm pregnant because it just depresses me. I actually started this pregnancy out heavier than I have any of my others (I'm usually about 120) so I'm quickly approaching the heaviest I ever been and it makes me want to cry even though I know it is perfectly healthy. I weighed around 160 at delivery with both my other kids and I know I will be heavier than that once I hit full term this time.

I started pre pregnancy at 122/123 and im now 146 but i was sick for almost two weeks and just now getting better. In the two weeks i was sick i lost close to four pounds and just now starting to gain it back. Im close to the 25 pounds my doctor said was a good amount to gain and im only at 26 weeks so i dont know how the next couple of months will go. My weight has slowed down so maybe i wont gain much more weight before the end of ny pregnancy.
Thank you .:shortcake:. for my beautiful siggy!!!

I've put on about 15lbs, I'm 5'8 and started off my pregnancy weighing 139lbs, I'm 154 now. I don't wanna go over 165 so can't gain more than 11lbs in the next 12 weeks. So I gotta really watch what I eat! I figure a 25lb weight gain is healthy enough.

Well... I've only gained around 13 lbs and I'm 27 weeks tomorrow. I had lost two pounds when I was weighed at my appointment yesterday and I got fussed at. I don't know... I am eating like crazy and my caloric intake is consistently higher than my calories burned. But... Baby is alright, and I feel good and my stomach is at almost orbital proportions. I still have a few months to make it to 30 lbs, which is what the dr says I should gain with baby boy. Uhh, so much fooood.

Looks like I'm one of the heaviest mommies here...boo. I started out my pregnancy at 205 lbs - I'm 5'8''. So 205 lbs is definitely overweight. Although, I am pretty sturdily built. I've been told by doctors that I must have really dense, heavy bones because my ideal weight is 160 lbs and that's borderline overweight for my height, going by BMI alone. I don't think I look like I weigh over 200 lbs. I way overindulged this summer, and gained about 10 lbs right before I got pregnant, so that certainly didn't help matters.

Right now I'm at 213 lbs, so I've gained about 8 lbs so far. Given the weight I started at, I should probably only gain about 15 lbs. I'll probably go over that though.

I will be 28 wks tomorrow, and I have gained over 30 lbs so far In my previous pg I gained easily over 60 lbs... For my first pg I was 19 and close to underweight, and I thought that was why I gained so much. I was heavier pre-pg this time around, so I thought maybe I wouldn't gain as much?? But I guess that will not be the case. I know my mom and sisters also gained a good bit during pg. I also don't think I eat a terrible diet. I drink mostly just water and I don't have a "perfect" diet, but it is not horrible either. Thankfully, my doctor has not complained to me about it (yet). when my sister was pg and gaining a lot, her doctor really gave her a hard time about it and it stressed her out so bad.

I feel like I am way, way over my mark. I started at 156lbs, and I am 5'7. Ideally, I should have only gained 25 to 35lbs. I'm 29 weeks and I have gained 40! I was 196 at the doctor's today :-( I'm worried that I may gain up to sixty, or more. Is there anything I can do to slow my weight gain a little? I drink a ton of water, and I really don't eat horribly, or any different than I did before I was pregnant. If anything I eat healthier, just more often. More fruit, more salad etc. Or is it just going to happen no matter what? Maybe I'm eating too many Oreos? I just feel gigantic.

I've found going for a walk every day has helped a lot. I eat pretty consistently healthy, but if I don't get a little activity I start packing on the pounds. But everyone's different

I started at 163 and I'm 5'10. At 28 weeks up 10 pounds, hoping to stay under 25 total this preg. I work in maternal/infant research, out of curiosity I ran the average weight gain for all mothers in our state (last 5 years)- it was 30 pounds.

Here's to healthy moms and babies- sounds like everyone is doing great!
