I am 35 weeks pregnant and have gained 21 pounds. i was only 112 pounds before i was pregnant and i'm 5ft 6in. people say i'm lucky because i don't look pregnant from the back it's all at the front. i didn't feel lucky to start off with. the sickness lasted 4 months and it was all day!

I am at 17 weeks today and i have gained between 2 and 4 pounds. it fluctuates every day..but never goes over 4. i am fairly happy with this, as i gained 46 pounds with my last pregnancy, and it was a total pain to lose!

With my first pregnancy i started out around 130 lbs and ended up 175 by the end of my pregnancy! i gained way too much lol at me for thinking i could eat tons of food and not get fat since a baby was eating some of it! this is my 2nd pregnancy & i started out 160 and now weigh 174 at 28 weeks so i'm doing much better with my weight this pregnancy. i'm 5'6" i'm obsessed about not gaining too much weight this pregnancy especially since i was pregnant again 2 months after giving birth to my first and had no time to lose the weight.

I'm 19, weighed 139.7lb when i got pregnant, am 22 weeks and 3 days pregnant and i currently weigh 139.48lb. i'm only 4' 11", and this calculator says i'm 7lb under my target weight. in my scan at 19 weeks baby was developing well, and is kicking very well. i think what is happening for me is the fat that was on my belly before is now disappearing and baby's weight + the fluid, etc is replacing it. i am eating enough, eat 3 meals a day plus snacks.

Hi everyone, i am 26 weeks and i have gained 25 lbs already! i don't understand how is that possible, because i eat very healthy, of course i have ice-cream from time to time but its not more often than before my pregnancy, when i was 117 lbs (5'7 high). i still work out lightly 3 times a week but looking at these charts just scares me, because i have no idea what else i could do to slow my gain weight. i feel like if i am going to eat even less, baby and i will not get enough nutrition needed per day.

I am 24 weeks and 4 days and am 11 lbs over my target weight. my doctor said to cut out sodas, fake juices and carbs but wth am i supposed to eat?!?! i don't care for sodas and "fake" juices anyways but i love rice and pasta and breads. i have cut back a lot and brought brown rice , whole grain pasta and wheat bread. i also cut back on all that eating i was doing before and i still gain weight! i work full time at a busy doctors office so i literally run around all day and even power walk with my sister when i can. my next follow up is in two weeks so i'm going to try to manage my weight until it catches up with my gestation. so frustrated!!

I never gained more than 20lb in my two previous pregnancies, but baby #1 was 9lbs13oz!! and baby #2 was 8lbs3oz. i`m 5`8" and normal bmi of 22. i don`t retain much fluid. this pregnancy i am almost 20 weeks and still don`t show. i have gained 4lbs, which is the same as my last two at this stage. if you are neither clinically under or over weight to start with, there is no reason to be weighed in pregnancy at all. some people simply need to gain alot, others not so much. eat as healthy as you can, take regular excersize and try not to worry. all of us are different and our bodies are doing a good job of nourishing the baby. the weight comes off with breastfeeding and time. good luck to you all....and have faith that you are the right weight for you and your baby.
