Total Weight Gain

I am about to be 17 weeks and I have gained 2 pounds total I feel like I should have gained more right?

My friend who is at 21 weeks has gained 12 total.

Should I be gaining more? Whats everyone else's total weight gain?

I know not normally a question you ask "Oh Carrie you look so nice today how much weight have you gained?"

    At my last appt which was at 22 weeks I was up 12 lbs. I think you're fine.. I wouldn't worry unless your dr is concerned.

    Just had my appt this morning.  I am -11lbs (lost).  I was yelled at and put on a watch list.  Baby is doing perfect though, I measured right on schedule.......I am 5'6" and was 220 at my BFP, so they aren't too concerned with me.  and obviously, I am not dieting, otherwise I would have never have weighted 220 in the first place.

    I wouldn't worry if your doc isn't concerned. I haven't gained much either...I am almost at the 4lb marker!

    At 11 weeks I was up 6 on my scale and 2 at the Dr.'s office.  Needless to say I like their scale better.  Smile  I haven't gained any since then.

    Don't worry, you have time to gain all the weight you want (and by that I mean 'be careful what you wish for' Wink). I had barely gained 1 or 2 pounds by 17 weeks. I delivered at 40w6d, with a total of 32lbs gain.

    at 20 wks I was -2 lbs (123 lbs). My doc said as long as I continue to gain and not start losing again then he wasnt worried.  I lost 10 lbs in the 1st tri from m/s while on meds. I didnt start gaining until about 15 wks.

    if your drs not worried then I wouldnt be. I had to drink some ensure type drinks for extra calories for a few wks.

    I'm 17 wks as well. And I'm still down 4lbs from pre-preggers weight. Had my dr appointment yesterday and she wants me to have gained weight by the time I see her. I've been eating everytime I'm hungry and have never had trouble gaining weight before, so I don't know where its going. So don't worry, you will probably start gaining soon.

    At 14 weeks I had only gained 2 pounds and now at 22 I am up 14... after week 15 it just started coming on fast.  My doctor said it was pretty common

    I am up 12 as of Saturday....which is right on track, but my darn doc. scale is about 2-3pounds higher but i blame it on the fact that I go there after work when I have eaten all day and am wearing clothes. Last month when I was there it said I was up like 10 but my scale said 8lbs. But when I got home from the appt my scale also said like 9.5 at that point in the day....

    So needless to say I like my weight when I can get on the scale in the morning before eating and after peeing!!!

    At 16 weeks I only had gained 3lbs, but then by my 19 week appt. I had gained another 4 making a total of 7. I was ok with that because baby has been doing a lot of growing recently and I have the bump to prove it. Just give it more time because your body will be growing a lot more over the next weeks/months. If your doctor is worried he/she will let you know.

    I've only gained 1 pound, I had gained 3, but lost 2 after 2 weeks. Maybe your body is just different! I wouldnt worry too much, unless the doc says too!

    I hadn't gained weight until this appointment at almost 24 weeks - I am up to 12 pounds. Dr's office said that gaining 1-2 pounds a week is normal.

    I didn't gain anything until my 18 week appt at which point I was up 5lbs.  As of today I am up 7.  I would agree with pp - be careful what you wish for.  Overall, if your dr is ok with your weight than I wouldn't worry and try not to compare yourselves to others because everyone is different.  My baby is consistently measuring big for his age and is growing well, so that along with the fact that my dr is happy with my progress makes me ecstatic.

    I have no idea as I don't weigh myself at home and I don't pay attention at the doctor's office. I figure, if it is a problem, they will let me know so why add another stressor to my life?

    I'm almost 19 weeks and haven't gained anything. The doctor doesn't seem concerned.
