Hey, I started off 116, I now weigh 145. I'm 28 weeks and I'm super nervous because I took a one hour glucose test and it was high. I have to take a 3 hr test next week . Am I obese. Is my baby going to be huge . I'm trying to keep calm but, I'm on edge.

So, I work out EVERYDAY and I did before i got pregnant. However, I lost like 3 lbs before pregnancy and then gained 7 pounds by week 12. I am now on week 15 and have woke up to what seems like a huge stomach overnight. I try not to over eat. For breakfast it's boiled egg and oat bran measured. Lunch is salad, or crackers and cheese and an apple, with 2 tbsp of peanut butter. Dinner is again, salad and crackers. I lift every morning, lower and upper, and walk very fast 3.5 miles. I feel like I'm gaining rapidly and just wanna cry. Any suggestions? Baby #3.

I'm almost 31 weeks, pre-pregnancy I was 5' and 314. I have had such major issues keeping anything down, even now, dropped down to 286. The doctors didn't like that at all. I've gained back about 10 lbs with a few med changes but there's no way I can get up to where they want me. But I'm trying. Anyone having issues keeping food down that has tricks I can try?

I just got to week 36 (it felt like an eternity) and I've gained 40 lbs so far :/ Baby is big, over 7 pounds already... with my first child I gained 70 lbs and lost it all within a year... I crave nothing but sweets, it's been tough but, I'm not concerned. It's important to enjoy and mix your choices. Make sure you eat veggies, fruits, fish, meats, and then give into your craving... :)

I was 120 pounds before I was pregnant. When I was 12 weeks pregnant I weighed 128, then at 20 weeks pregnant I was 133.8 and now I'm 155 pounds at 23 weeks pregnant. Both doctors said me and the baby are good and safe and healthy.

Those doctors are crazy. you should not be gaining 20 lbs in 3 weeks. your weight of 155 is fine for 23 weeks, but it's the fact that you gained so much ch so quickly that is concerning.

I'm 5'7 now 180 pounds! I've gained right at 30 pounds and I'm starting week 33. I've continued to work out, but my diet has pretty much been out of control lol. All this baby wants is cake! I am trying to be conscious of my food choices but its tough!

This could be a good time to learn how to sneak veggies into your cakes. (good practice for if you have a picky eater. lol) zucchini cake, yum. carrot cake. banana bread. there are cake recipes that have tomatoes in them. beats are a great way to add red to a cake without food coloring. apple sauce can be used in place of oil. there can be some fun ways to sneak in extra nutrients. eat cake, sneak in extra nutrients. lol

I started out pre-pregnancy 5'7" 126 lbs. Have been horribly nauseous the whole time, and the month of December dropped down to 104 lbs. FINALLY, my doctor put me on Zofran, which helps a bit, but only for a short time after I take it, then nauseous again. I'm in week 19 and around 111 lbs now. So I have gained weight, kind of... bad? Good? Thoughts? Anyone else have this experience?

I'm on my third pregnancy and have lost weight with all 3. about 20 lbs with each. my doctor told me as long as the baby is at a healthy weight, baby is growing on schedule, everything is fine.

I am 26 weeks and have already gained 33 pounds as of a couple days ago. I weighed 110 at 5'2" before I was pregnant. I now weigh 143. Is this too much? I'm scared I won't be able to lose it all. Why am I gaining so much weight?

S Feb 14, 2018 08:26:21 AM ET

It could, more than likely, be water retention. there can be a lot of it. i've lost 10- 15 lbs in the first week after delivering both my kids.

Guest Jun 27, 2018 11:11:57 PM ET

I am 5'1 and gained 45 lbs with my son, but luckily lost it all but the time he was one and now i'm pregnant with baby #2. my baby was almost 9 lbs and healthy.

I am 10 weeks pregnant. I started with 156 pounds and now I am 160. Is that normal weight gain?

Kenzie Mar 3, 2018 01:16:29 PM ET

Not typically. but at 10 weeks, you are 3 weeks away from #2 trimester, and they say 2-4 lbs is normal range. but, to me it sounds like you are putting it on a little faster than recommended.

Missy Mar 19, 2018 05:52:17 PM ET

There isn't a normal. it depends on your body's needs. my first pregnancy i gained 10lbs, my first tri but i was 18 and had a six pack . my body needed some storage. lol this pregnancy, i started at 155 (10lbs more than my first as i am now 25 years old) and i actually got really sick and lost all the way down to weighing 142lbs. finally, just now at 21 weeks started to gain a couple pounds but, still under my pre prego weight. long story longer, 4 even pounds in the first tri sounds perfectly fine to me. believe me, it gets extremely low or high and still those baby's are fine. also, at the end of the day if your doc isn't worried and you have done a good job at choosing your obgyn, i would trust them and stop worrying. the stress is bad for baby more than any weight gain.
