I'm 37weeks today, and I've been gaining 1-2 pounds per week. Last week I was at 30 pounds total gain, which although I wasn't happy about, I felt okay about it because my midwife said I should plan to gain 25-35 pounds total by the end of the pregnancy. I only get on the scale on Saturday mornings when I get up, so that it's the same day, same time each week and thus more likely to offer an accurate idea of my weight gain. This morning I get on and I gained FIVE pounds this past week! Should I be as freaked out as I am? Is that considered "rapid" weight gain? And should I call my midwife? I don't want to be "that" person who calls, especially on a holiday weekend.
Thanks in advance!
