Week & Weight

I went to my doctors appointment today and I have gained 23 lbs thus far at 30 weeks pregnant. The doctor wants me to slow down because he likes his patients to be on the smaller end of the weight gain spectrum (25 lbs not 35 lbs gained). I am exercising (although, i could probably do more of it), and I am eating healthy! The weight just keeps coming on. It makes me feel bad, but I guess I will try and increase the exercise? I hate to restrict when I'm obviously hungry but I don't want to over gain.

 How far along are you? How much weight have you gained so far?

Re: Week & Weight

  • I've gained 28 lbs at 29 weeks, and my OB has been completely fine with my weight gain. I actually gained 10 lbs from 24-28 weeks (and nothing since), and she didn't even comment. :-) I gained 55-60 lbs with my last two pregnancies, so I'm doing better than that at least. I think it helps that my OB has 4 kids of her own, so she knows that sometimes weight gain isn't completely in our control.

  • Ill be 33 weeks Friday and have gained about 12 pounds.

     

  • I think as long as you're eating healthy (with a few unhealthy treats for mental health, of course! ;) ) then there's no reason to feel guilty at all. I'm 31 weeks and have gained 17lbs. Because I started out obese, my doctors wanted me to only gain 15lbs through my pregnancy. My diet has been restricted from the beginning because I am a diabetic, and I told my doctors flat out when they mentioned the 15 lb goal that I only intended on focusing on one number - my blood sugar. I stay active, I eat healthy, and what weight I gain, I gain and they can kiss my fat ass if they don't like it. ;) FWIW, even though I've gained more weight than they'd like, the baby is doing fantastic. Keeping my diet healthy and my blood sugars tightly controlled, she's not measuring big at all (35% percentile) and every scan, test, and lab has come out with fantastic numbers - even my cholesterol.
  • 33 1/2 weeks & 30 lbs. Neither my OB or peri have said anything about my weight gain. My BPs are good and baby is growing well so I think that they are happy with the way this pregnancy is going & so am I.

    AL always welcome! 

  • At my last appointment, 28 weeks, I was up 25 pounds.  My doctors aren't at all concerned.

  • At 31.5 weeks, I was up 24lbs. I will definitely end up on the larger end of the DR-approved weight gain range! :)

  • As long as you were a healthy weight beforehand, I think 23lbs is great for 30 weeks. You're doctor can have his preference, but if he expects his patients to gain based on a chart... I wouldn't stress out too much over the weight. If you gain the average 1lb/week for the rest of the time, you'll still be within the healthy range.

    I started out overweight and have gained about 12lbs at 30 weeks, but I should gain between 15-25 which means, like you, I'm on track to gain at the higher end of what the doctor would like, but my OB has said nothing about my weight gain.

  • Don't stress about it, every person will gain differently and it all depends on your pre baby body.  I was in shape and muscular before getting PG both times and both times I gain 35lbs no matter what I do.  My Dr's never say a thing and actually say my gain is perfect.

  • 30 Weeks 29lbs. The doctor isn't concerned at all.

  • 31weeks 35 lbs. I got a lecture and was told to slow down. I honestly don't eat bad. I started out at a healthy weight. 123lbs and I'm 5'1. I'm carrying all belly. I don't even know how to slow down the weight gain bc I don't feel like I'm over eating or eating unhealthy.

  • 20 lbs at 33 weeks, maybe a little less because they took my weight after I ate lunch and had my uggs on.

  • 31 weeks and 19 lbs. My OB hasn't said anything, and I started out this pregnancy overweight so I "should" be gaining less but whatever.

    I wouldn't worry about it at all, especially if you're already eating healthy. Some women just gain more weight.

  • I've gained 25lbs in 30 weeks, most of it in the last month, and while I don't LOOK terrible, I feel strange, because I've never had to go on a real weight-loss regimen before. I'm scared of doing too much or too little post-partum, of either hurting myself or failing to lose the weight. Doc hasn't said a word, and hubby keeps saying I'm beautiful (isn't he a sweetie?!), so I'm trying not to stress.

  • At my 32 week i had finally gained 2. ive been the same since week 17. I am still down 7 overall. But I am oberweight and have been on a diabetic diet since learning I was insulin resistant early on in pregnancy so my situation is not normal but doctor is happy with it.

    This annoys me to no end because I'm guessing "he" has never been pregnant lol. If you're eating right and exercising, then just go with it. Your doctor can prefer that you are small, but honestly, your body will do what it wants to do. At this point, if you're not comfortable with it, I would not increase exercise. And I wouldn't restrict if you're hungry.

  • 33w tommorrow,

    up 7 pounds from pre-pregnancy weight as of last week at my official weight in

    (this morning I was still only up 7 at home, but I'm on weekly appts now for GD, so we'll see if it goes up during the day)

    The mw made a note of it when I brought my low gain up, but she hasn't pressed the panic button yet...I was high side of normal BMI before pregnancy too, since that effects how much weight you *should* gain, but I think they are more concerned with eating healthy (which I do on a GD diet) and if belly is measureing normally.

  • I have gained 28lbs at 30 weeks.  I was told to watch my calorie intake.  I have been excercising regularly through my pregnancy and eating pretty normal (with exception to the holidays). 
  • at 33 weeks I was 30lbs..I'm pretty on course for a 1lb on a week so I should end up around 38-40lbs gained at the end.  I was 3 lbs first trimester, 20 lbs the second (yikes!) and so far in the third i've gained 7.  I've exercised regularly and with moderate intensity, my BEST trimester of eating was my second, and I started off at 5'3" 123 lbs. So far no comments from my doctor except a couple times asking about my diet (during 2nd trimester) and when I told him what I ate he shrugged and said I'm gaining what I needed too and some of it's probabley water retention.

  • I am 31 weeks and have gained 6 pounds total. I didn't gain a lot with my first either. I only gained 14 total with dd. I have been sick the entire time though so I think tht has a lot to do with it.

  • At my last appointment I was 16lbs up at 29 weeks.







  • Almost 31 weeks and I'm up 27 lbs. My midwife isn't concerned at all.

  • I'll be 32 weeks tomorrow and have gained 23 pounds. I was gaining at a much faster rate and really had to start watching what i was eating. I gained 6 pounds between my 26 and 28 week appointment. Only 1 pound between week 28 and 30. I really think it varies.

    30 pounds is a very healthy weight gain. Don't start trying to "diet" to appease your doctor's desire for you to only gain 25. Keeping it to 30 is hard enough!
