Holy weight gain!

I just got back from my dr. apt and have gained 6lbs in the past 2 weeks.  I have been eating really well and was really surprised by this number.  She isn't worried about GD or Pre-E (great blood pressure!), so it's just sudden weight gain.  Has anyone else experienced this?  I'm hoping its just water weight that will come off quickly once the baby is here.

  • yup...I gained 5 lbs b/w my last two appts, I was not happy about it
  • Exactly my experience from my appt yesterday.  I was seeing one of the other OBs in the practice and got a little lecture about it, especially since I'm already up 30lb at 34 weeks. :(  So hoping she comes a little early, or that most of that gain is water retention, which would not surprise me....

  • i'm gaining weight like crazy, and 90% of it has been in the 3rd trimester, and it all seems to be in my abdomen and boobs.  i'm up 30-33 lbs and still have about 8 weeks to go- ack!

  • I totally hear you! I'm also gaining weight fast but it was the same with my first baby and I lost all weight in the first 4 months. No worries! If you are eating healthy and you breastfeed your baby, it will all go away.

    This is me. I already have a trainer picked out for after the doc releases me for physical activity....makes me feel a little less depressed about it.

    yeah, i can't say i'm too worried for myself.  i healthy foods, and try to walk about 20 mins every day (which seems to be getting harder and harder), and i say active with lots of house work. when the time comes to lose the weight, i know i'll be motivated. i had previously lost 30 lbs on my own, so i'm sure i can do it again (and hopefully some extra). like you, i've been planning a little on my post-pregnancy workout, and have some dvd's book-marked for purchase.

  • I gained 4 lbs in 2 weeks. I didn't like hearing that either, but my doctor said it was fine.
