Here's a few questions about weight.

How much weight have you gained so far?
How many weeks are you?

What was your goal?
Have you stayed close, under or over?

Have you watched your weight or just let it be?


I'm trying to keep on eye on my weight gain only b/c my mom went crazy.

I'll answer!

How much weight have you gained so far? Lost 6 lbs (well, lost 14, gained 8)
How many weeks are you? 22+5

What was your goal? About 8-10 lbs by now, 25 by term.
Have you stayed close, under or over? Staying close so far!

Have you watched your weight or just let it be? Watched it all the time with the Wii Fit, just because I was curious I don't really let the numbers change anything though, I just like seeing that I'm growing!

And read the last paragraph of this article - Feeling baby movements in pregnancy - it says some countries don't even weigh pregnant women anymore, because it is no indicator of health. So that should help you relax a bit, I know it helped me!

Oh Cheryl I'm not too worried just don't wanna go crazy! My doctor doesn't seem to mind at all what I do! THANKFULLY!


How much weight have you gained so far? about 2 lbs last I checked
How many weeks are you? 12 weeks

What was your goal? no more than 5 by now, 30 max total
Have you stayed close, under or over? so far so good...

Have you watched your weight or just let it be?
I've monitored it but like Cheryl I still eat what sounds good when i'm hungry. I try not to eat just because I can though.

How much weight have you gained so far? approx. 26 lbs
How many weeks are you? 31 weeks

What was your goal? To gain only 20-25 lbs
Have you stayed close, under or over? Over

Have you watched your weight or just let it be? I tried to watch my weight...I jogged up until the second trimester...I consulted a nutritionist...but I still ended up gaining. We walk every night for about an hour unless the weather is bad, but there isn't much I'm going to be doing about it now. I am looking into my exercise/eating regimen once the baby is born.

edit: I'm 32 weeks now, but was 31 at last measurement.

I gained 25lbs total, but 9lbs by 12 weeks! I only watched my weight at the end because of having gestational diabetes. Otherwise I probably would have gained at least 40

How much weight have you gained so far? 27 lbs
How many weeks are you? 34W

What was your goal? I didn't really have one....but I had the number 25 in my head.
Have you stayed close, under or over? Over, but I shouldn't be by much at the end.

Have you watched your weight or just let it be? For the most part, during the entire 1st trimester and some of the beginning of the 2nd trimester my DH took away my scale , but since getting it back its helped me keep myself in line. I do walk and do weights 4-5Xs per week.

How much weight have you gained so far? 4 by my scale. None by my doctor's scale (I am not sure why the difference).

How many weeks are you? 13 weeks

What was your goal? I have no goal.
Have you stayed close, under or over? Since I have no real goal I would say I am right on track!

Have you watched your weight or just let it be? I have been watching the scale but not because I am concerned about what to I gain. It's more because my doctor seemed a bit concerned that I had not gained anything so I know he will be watching it more closely if I don't gain anything by my next appointment. I am not changing anything I do because of the numbers on the scale - just being prepared.

How much weight have you gained so far? 26 lbs at last appt, but the appt before that was 30 lbs, I seem to gain at one appt, lose at the next, gain at the next, etc!

How many weeks are you? 38 weeks

What was your goal? 25-35 lbs, a healthy pregnancy weight gain was my goal

Have you stayed close, under or over? I've stayed right on target so far.

Have you watched your weight or just let it be? I actually don't own a scale so I've only been getting weighed at the dr's office. I didn't want to get obsessive over it or anything. For the most part I have tried to just be healthy during the pregnancy, eating pretty good, exercising, all that. Honestly I ate pretty darn good through the first two trimesters, but this last one I've been slipping. But then I didn't hardly exercise the first two trimesters and have gotten alot more exercise in in this last one, so in my mind it all evens out! My main goal was to be healthy and I feel like I've done that so I'm okay with it.

How much weight have you gained so far? 34 lbs
How many weeks are you? 30

What was your goal? 30 lbs
Have you stayed close, under or over? Gone a bit over

Have you watched your weight or just let it be? I try to eat smart and fill up on fruits and veggies instead of garbage, And I burn around 900 calories per week on exercise, but I pretty much ignore the number on the scale.

How much weight have you gained so far? 19 lbs.
How many weeks are you? 38

What was your goal? I never had a goal. I was always okay with just letting my body gain whatever it needed to. I "guessed" that i would gain about 30 total though
Have you stayed close, under or over? Under, quite surprisingly

Have you watched your weight or just let it be? I weigh myself once a week to keep track of it but i haven't at all been trying to maintain it in any way. I just try to eat healthy even though it's so darn hard with so many sweet cravings! LOL

I gained 35lb total, Meg was 7lb 6oz, I lost 20lb in the first two weeks after having her! My goal was to not gain more than 30 but I wasn't crazy strict with my diet (though I did work out here and there) so I went a tad over but my doctor wasn't worried. I'm now only 4lb away from my prepregnancy weight (4 mo PP).
