3rd Trimester

hit 200lbs...ugh.

Well, I'm officially depressed. This morning, the scale said 200. I started out at 167 so at almost 31 weeks I'm up 33lbs. I'm depressed. And tomorrow I have to see my OB - and he is SUPER strict about how much you gain. My midwife last appt wasn't concerned at all. Now I'm going to stress all day until my appt tomorrow. Ugh.

    25 to 35 lbs is what they want you to gain. I wouldn't stress. I gained 33 lbs with DS and nothing was ever said. I've gained 25 lbs so far and I'm 32 weeks tomorrow. I'm not stressing!

  • 33 lbs sound totally normal.  Don't let the numbers depress you - it's not like you're obese and unhealthy - you're growing a person.

  • Thanks girls. It's so hard! I used to have an eating disorder in college, so weight has always been a struggle. I eat healthy, and chase our 3 year old DD all day (plus work) so I'm not just laying around...ugh. Glad I'm not alone!!

  • I'm with you sister! I started at 160ish and am up to over 200 lbs (I refuse to get on the scale at home, and refuse to look at the scale at the OB).

    Fortunately for me, my OB isn't strict unless it's somethign obscene.  They don't want to

  • Oh, I am sooo nervous for my appt this week. At my last appt I was 198, so I KNOW I'll be over 200 now. Ugh, it's very frustrating. With DS I started out 2 lbs heavier and was 198 when I delivered. Now I'm over 200 and still have 4 more weeks to go O_O

  • Your weight gain seems in the normal range to me.  I gained 52lbs with my DD, this go around, I'm up 21lbs so far.  Don't stress, I know easier said than done, but YOU ARE GROWING A HUMAN!  Relax.  If your OB yells at you, just smile a

  • I know how you feel. I have always been somewhat overweight but NEVER 200 pounds. I am now like 206 and I remember being so depressed when I saw 200 on the scale. And when I went to my wic appointment she showed me on a chart how high I was above the weig

  • Ugh I feel you. I hit 200 a few weeks ago but haven't gone over yet. So on the scale they have the one weight thing on 150 and the small one alllll the way over to the edge. What I'm dreading is when they move the big weight thing to the 200 notch... Hopi

  • I am right with you girlfriend!!!  I was about the same starting weight as you (a little heavier).  I was over 200 lbs at my 30 week appt and then at my 32 week appt I had gained 4 lbs in 2 weeks!  Dr said she wasn't concerned at all.

  • I hit 210 with my last pregnancy and I had started out at 158. I was really depressed. After I had him, before leaving the hospital I had lost 30 lbs right off. It's surprising how much is water weight.

  • I know it probably shouldn't, but the subject line really bothers me; I started at 206lb and I didn't think I was "ugh".  I know intellectually that 200 probably seems scary because it's a "landmark" number with zeroes, but it still hurts that so

  • I started at over 200. How's that for depressing? ;)
  • I gained 60 pounds and near the end I stopped caring. One week after my son was born I was down 40 pounds. My highest weight was 238 and now I am below 200. It will come off again.

  • I feel ya, I started at 170 and am at 205!!! Yikes! But honestly don't stress, you body will gain what it needs... There is no "correct" number.

  • I hit 200 a few weeks ago. Woohoo LOL. I got above 200 with DD1 as well but was back in the 160s within 6 weeks. Fingers crossed for a repeat.
