2nd Trimester

how much weight have you gained?

(i want to start by saying, if you have lost weight, keep it to yourself. i'm sorry if you're sick or whatever, but i'm cranky and fat and i don't want to hear it.)


as of my appointment today i have gained 9 pounds total. (i say it's really 7.5, because i weighed myself at home without jeans and shoes, but whatever)

my doc said that it was fine, that i was on track and should gain 30 to 35 total, but god, i feel like a flippin' whale.

what about you? what have you gained? what do you want/plan to gain total? second-time moms, gaining faster or slower this time?

Re: how much weight have you gained?

  • eh, by 14 weeks I had already gained 20 lbs.  I'm now up 28 lbs. You are fine!  I would say that is right in line with what the doc expects for you.

  • I'm up 3 lbs. so far which is probably pretty similar to last time.  It doesn't really matter what you want and you can't really plan to gain a certain amount.  Your body is going to do what it needs to do.  I gained 35 lbs. the first time so I assume I'll probably gain 30-35 with this one.  All the weight came off gradually without much work so I'm not that concerned about it.

  • Just weighed myself today...up 10 pounds.

  • I just go by my at home scale too :)

    I've gained around 8 pounds so far, I had a normal BMI before pregnancy so was told to aim for anywhere from 25 to 35 pounds. I'm only 5'3" so ideally would like to stay on the lower end!

  • I'm up 2 lbs, but with the way I've been eating I'll be up several more by my next appt.  The last 2 days I have been eating like crazy!!!!!

    I think I'm gaining at about the same speed I did with DS. I gained WAY more towards the end. I was up 32lbs total with him. I'm hoping to not gain quite that much this time, but I'm sure I will...oh well.

  • Oh GOD, I kept reading "3 lbs" and I'm thinking, "What am I doing wrong?!"  But then I looked at your tickers and saw that most of you are at the beginning of the second trimester. WHEW.  I was worried!

  • I have gained 17 pounds so far. I found out I was pregnant right after my wedding, so I was at my tiniest.  Probably too little (115, 5'7).  I feel huge, but the doctor has not said anything about it.  I think you are right on track as well. :)

  • two lbs Here, my doc said my goal is 25-35 (starting out at 128 5'5)and if I was trying for the lower end to have gained about 3 by my next visit which is in a week.  But I think some people go through spurts where they gain a bunch and some gain steadily everyone is different, If I feel fat or bloated I eat more healthy and cut out salt, it makes me feel better.

  • 4 pounds so far...but I'm 5 2" about 175 pre pregnancy. So, I really am paranoid about gaining too much. Since I'm a big girl I was told "ideal" weight gain for me is only 15-20 pounds. Since I had no m/s, i didn't get to lose weight from puking my guts out. I think I have the nicest fetus ever. I was very tired for 6 weeks, and now my skin is broken out. But it that is the worst thing that happens to me, I'll concider myself lucky. Fat or not.
  • So far I've gained 3-4.

    With my first pregnancy I gained about 35-40 pounds.

    I would love to gain 30 total, but as long as I don't go over the poundage from last time (because I now know I can come back from it) I'll be happy.

  • Oh yeah, I refuse to pay attention to my weight like that, but I'm sure it's around 15 pounds by now.  My booty is larger than life now. -_-

  • As of my last appointment (15 weeks), I had only gained a total of 3 pounds. At my appointment today (at 19w5d), I had gained a total of 10 pounds. I gained 7 pounds in 5 weeks!! I was not thrilled. My OB said that she's not worried about it and that as long as I don't gain 7 pounds between all of my appointments, I should be fine. She said that she wants me to gain about 25-35 pounds total.

    the nurse who weighs me always says, "up [however many] pounds since last time." she says it in a mock-cheerful way.

    i want to say, "just don't tell me, and i'll keep my eyes closed when i weigh, okay?"

     at my 2 month appointment i had only gained 2, so i gained 6 or 7 in the last month.

  • Hey, that's what I tell mine.  I say, "I seriously don't care to know," and then I turn my head.  Heck, if my doctor had a problem, I'm sure he'd say something, right? lol

  • I haven't looked at my weight since my 14-week appointment. I definitely started packing it on earlier this pregnancy, but I was definitely more hungry my first trimester with this pregnancy.  Its just not worth obsessing over and I know I will.  I'm eating a pretty balanced diet and trying to take it easy so I don't get pre-e again.  Besides, the weight is only temporary.

  • you want to feel better- done. I gained 27lbs and I'm 20 weeks.
  • I have gained 3 pounds so far. Well at least I was up 3 pounds two weeks ago. I feel like I am probably going to be up another 3 or 4 pounds at my 18 week appointment. This is my 1st baby and I am hoping to gain no more than 25 pounds. We will see!

  • zero so far.  25 weeks.

    However, I started out at a size 12/14 and 185 pounds when I got pregnant. 

  • At 15 weeks, I had gained 4 pounds.

    From 21-26 weeks, where I am currently, I have not gained a single pound.

    But from 15-21 weeks, I gained 13 pounds. 

    So 17 total.  Got a little nervous about my fast gain last month, but now I am a little nervous that I am not gaining.  It physically hurts me to eat too much food.  I am eating such small portions.  I am not sick at all, but it feels like my stomach may explode and it hurts to move when I eat too much.

  • none. which is amazing, considering the amount of crap I've shoved in my mouth over the past 5 weeks. I'm definitely bigger, though.
  • i was 185 before i was prego then went down to 160 and now ive only gained 2 pounds.....i look the BEST ive EVER looked in my life....altho i wish i had a baby bump im sure it will come soon!!!! IT BETTER!!!!!! lol
  • This is my second child. I'll be 5 months this friday and I've gained (since the last check up) 10 lbs total.  I figured I would have gained more but theres been a huge difference in this pregnancy. Alot of grease makes me sick to my stomach. Love spicy foods but they give me heartburn. Not to mention I've had a 3.5 yr old DD to run around. But I feel alot bigger than I am. to me I look like I've gained 30 lbs. But my doctor said that the best for me is to try and keep my weight gain around 20 lbs

  • I've only gained two so far.  I'm very thankful and hope I don't pack it on too much in the coming weeks!

  • I'm up 18. Whatever....I spent my last pregnancy stressing about weight to the point of purposely scheduling my appointments in the morning and only eating watermelon until after my appointment. Not worth it. It doesn't matter as long as you are healthy and the baby is healthy. Plus it melts off fast after, especially if you breastfeed.

    Good luck ladies! You are all beautiful!
