19 lbs @ 26 weeks. I gained 10 in 6 weeks, and my dr's nurse made a comment about it. But I figure as long as I don't continue to gain like that I should be good.
I Love my Dave: 30 pounds
boodapug77:My doctor was concerned because I gained 11 pounds in a month! Anyone else gain this much in a month? Getting my diabetes test done next week but I am hoping its not that and I just went a little crazy with food. Getting it under control now...
I had a 10 lb gain in 4 weeks. Doctor wasn't concerned as it's not a pattern and said I might have just popped. She said to just be aware of it and we'll see where we stand at next appointment. You can be sure I've been watching my snacking A LOT more lately!!! LOL
PrimRoseMama:Everyone is different. Unless your doctor expresses concern then don't obsess. Focus on nutrition and not the numbers on the scale.
Absolutely what Prim said. I'm actually still negative from being so sick. Your Dr will tell you if they think you're gaining too little or too much. Otherwise, just eat healthy and don't worry about it. I actually have no idea how much I gained with DD#1 and people think it's the oddest thing.
I Love my Dave: 30 pounds 40 for shame
Minus 16 lbs. 19 weeks.
Just started getting the 'pre side eye' this morning from the doctor. They're happy with the way things are right now (I had weight to lose) but I'm thinking if I go back in 4 weeks and I've lost more (23 weeks) that I'm going to get some sort of lecture or prelecture.
Doctor made it a point of confirming this morning that I'm not trying to lose weight - that its just happening on its own to which I replied yes. I really just am craving healthy stuff a lot of the time (and french fries with ketchup :P). And she's ok with that and said that its not unusual but I get the feeling that next time I'm going to get some sort of "we'd like to see you gain something by your next appointment" if in 4 weeks I'm still losing weight.
So I picked up a slurpee on the way into work to celebrate :P
If you're gonna be dumb, you better be tough.

Am I the only person who has no idea? I don't know what I've gained because I have no idea what I weigh (I honestly don't even look at my appointments).
Maybe it's because this is my third but I just don't care. I'm going to gain what I'm going to gain and it's going to come off when I have the baby. Beyond that, I don't think much about it.
I just got back from my 16 week appt and I am up 15 lbs :)
This is my usual m.o.
I always gain way more than others in the 1st tri. I usually gain between 35-40 in the end. I always have been able to lose it all within 6 mo without even working out. Just by breastfeeding and watching portions and such... And running after my other kids, I guess....
Don't worry about it. I mean, I would keep an eye on myself - obviously you would prefer to avoid another 11lb in one-mo gain if possible.. But our bodies largely do what they need to do IMO. You get to make the choices of what goes in, but you can't control the hunger and the hunger deserves to be responded to.

I have lost 15 because of morning sickness, I am at twenty weeks. My doctor is concerned because I was not eating at night and often not being able to keep my lunch down. I had weight to lose before I became pregnant, but I am also eating healthier than ever so even though she is concerned I know I am not filling my body and my boy's with crap. I have also dropped a pant size but my belly is still growing every time she measures.
Focus yourself on nutrition, because everyone is different. I just started zofran last week and it is helping but I am still getting sick. Guess we shall see what I gain from here!
I am 14 weeks with twins and up 7 lbs.
With my last baby, I only gained 1-2 lb a month, but on my 5th month and my 9th month, I gained 8 lbs each. So I ended up with 28 lbs overall, but with 2 months with large jumps. As long as you don't continue to gain 11 lbs a month, you will be fine. Some months are just pop months.
