    How much weight have you gained??

    I am moving up on 23 pounds at almost 27 weeks. YIKES!!! I was not tiny to begin with. It is rediculous. I have got to get a grip on the crap that i eat! How much have you all gained?

    I've gained 5-6 lbs, but I was overweight to begin with. I don't normally gain that much when I'm pg, it's while I'm breastfeeding that I gain! I gained the most with my first, but that was when I was actually skinny! I typically end up weighing less then when I started. But...then I start breastfeeding!

    I'm only gained about 5lbs. But, I am very overweight so I really should only gain 15 or so. I actually don't have much of an
    appetite. Nothing sounds good and food sometimes even makes me gag. It's weird because I didn't have much morning sickness. I also have a ton of heartburn and that puts me off to eating too.

    I've gained 13 lbs to date (24w 5d) and I'm also overweight too. I wouldn't worry about it until you dr is. All you can do is watch what you eat and what you snack on. I make sure I always have fruits and veggie with me at work to snack on but I really can't say much because I'm having MacDonalds for lunch today.

    Okay...again I feel like the loser here
    I'm 26 weeks today and I've put on 29 lbs...maybe 30 by now as it's adding up quickly these days.
    I have a sweet tooth at night so I bought weight watchers desserts the other day but I don't think you're supposed to eat both of them
    I was about normal for my height when I started and my OB hasn't said anything yet. I did lose everything after my last pg so I'm trying to keep that in mind when I start to freak out.
    My next u/s is in 2 weeks so I'm hoping there's a 20 lb baby in there

    Casey, I am right up there with you. I think it was 30 pounds at my last OB visit 2 weeks ago, so who knows what it is now. I had finally reached my ideal weight (dropped 45 pounds to get there) when I got pg, so I am pretty bummed out. I had hope that what I weighed now would be what I weighed at the end of this pg! But, I also have a horrible sweet tooth that I keep giving in to. I'm just ready for this pg to be over with so that I can go back on my diet and get all this weight off!

    I am with you ladies~ Missy, Casey and Jennifer. I am 27 weeks and have gained about 25 pounds. I average about a pound a week.

    I have a wicked sweet tooth as you all know!!! But I feel fine and I am not going to worry until my Dr. does. I know I will be back on Weight Watchers when the baby's born and exercising up a storm again.

    I'll be 27 weeks on Saturday and have gained 6 pounds. I was very sick for the first 4 months and lost five pounds. So it took me a while to get to my starting weight. I'm carrying exactly how I did with my daughter. I still get ill and have to eat frequent small meals/bites due to extreme heartburn. I wish I could simply enjoy a full meal but I know if I indulge I will pay the price later with intolerable heartburn.

    I'm at about 23 pounds at 28 weeks. It's a little much, but ya know what.....what the heck! This is my last pregnancy and the last time I will ever look in the mirror and think i look good no matter how HUGE I am. I have decided to bask in the glory of my flabdom! (well at least for this week)!
