2nd Trimester

Weight gain at 20 weeks

I'm 20 weeks today with my 2nd and have gained almost 14 pounds already! I started at 108. In the beginning I was very nauseous and could only eat saltines , plain bagels, plain potatoes up until about 12-14 weeks. Now that has subsided and I don't feel like my diet is terrible. I mean, there is room for improvement as always, but I'm able to eat fruits and veggies again. but I'm freaking out about how much i have gained already. I still exercise 4-5 times a week 30-40 min and have a 2 year old I chase around all day.  Advice? Thoughts?

    Unless your doctor is concerned, what you are doing is fine. Baby will get the nutrients they need.

  • If you start your pregnancy at a healthy weight you should gain 25-30 lbs. A 14 lb weight gain halfway through your pregnancy sounds like exactly where you should be.
