So I have gained 10 pounds since the beginning of this pg.
I feel so huge right now....
I'm not there yet with this pregnancy, but with my son I lost a ton of weight until I was about 17 weeks. I'd probably only regained 2 lbs by 20 weeks, so I was still below my starting weight.
Have you talked with your doctor or midwife about the weight gain?
I went to the doctor last Tuesday and I had only gained 7 pounds. My doctor said that was excellent!
FWIW, most of the people who answer these threads are on the lower end of the spectrum.
I am almost 19 weeks and have gained 10 lbs.
try this link. I think you'll find your weight gain is perfectly normal.
I'm still down 13lbs as of yesterday. I was only suppose to gain 10lbs this pregnancy anyways.
At 20 weeks exactly today, I am minus2.5 lbs.
I was about the same at this point in my pg w/ DD, and ended up gaining 45 at 40 weeks w/ her!
I've always heard that if you do a max of 5lbs in the first trimester and 1 lbs each week after, you should be fine and take it off easily. Based on that rule, you are doing great!
With my first I ended up following that pretty closely and lost it all in 4 months without much effort. I'm 19 weeks now with my second and have gained 8 lbs.
At my 20w appt I had gained a total of 5 lbs, but when I went in a 24w I had gained another 8 lbs for a total of 13. My Dr. was not very happy with the jump in weight, but I admit I was not being as good as I should've been that month.
I'm back on track now and in the last 2 weeks I think I've lost a lb or two. (I'm overweight to begin with so they are monitoring my weight a little closer than someone of normal weight).
Everyone is different and our bodies react differently. At 20w was when I really started to look pregnant instead of just chunky. It is an adjustment when your body starts to change. I'm almost 26w now and I've gotten over the feeling huge and think my bump is cute again. :-)
Im not as far along as most of the ladies posting on this thread.
at 16 weeks I've gained 3 lbs.... from what I have read this is about when I should start gaining a little more.
So far 3lbs but I started overweight and they don't want me to gain more the 20.
