I am 5’8 and was 125 pre-pregnancy. I have already gained 24
pounds at 27.5 weeks. My OB told me to expect to gain anywhere from 30-40 pounds
total. I stopped working out for about a month in my first trimester because every time I did I
got sick, but I work out 6 days a week now (which I did pre-pregnancy).
Honestly ALL of my weight is in my belly and chest. My arms, legs, and back
look exactly like they did pre-pregnancy and I feel great. My vitals are also
good and I am not having issues with swelling (yet). So…I guess it is what it
is. I think everyone is different and there are a lot of factors. I have gained
a lot compared to you ladies, but I feel great and my OB keeps referring to me
as healthy and thin.
