I was just wondering how much weight you gained when you wehere pregnant and did you loose it all easily? I'm asking that because right now I'm pregnant and I didn't really gain any wieght, I lost some lol. At first I lost some of my overweight and after that I lost some more because I have to watch what I eat because I suffer from pregnancy diabetes. 1 Month ago, my doctor told me that had gained 2 lbs but last time I went ther, I lost 1 lbs lol But the baby is growing healthy and I'm always eating lol I think I have lost all of my overweight (I can see in my face and side that I lost weight) and I've gain some weight for the baby, but I don't see it because of the lost. Did that happen to you also?

With my first pregnancy I had gained a whopping 12 lbs! LOL The reason being is because I was actually loosing weight from a bad cold I caught while I was pregnant and by the hospital's scale it looked like I wasn't gaining any weight at all. By my 5th month I was 132 lbs and by the end of my pregnancy I was at 132 lbs (yep, you read that right). When the doctors first noticed this non weight gain they let it slide, but after the next appointment they worried the baby wasn't growing correctly and the doctor wanted to set up a second ultrasound as well as measured my tummy. Even after the measuring the doctor wasn't satisfied LOL, so she set up it up for me to have the ultrasound. Everything checked out to be fine and my baby was growing normally. He turned out to be 6 lbs 8 oz at birth. I didn't really have any extra weight to lose from this pregnancy as I lost all the extra weight I would have gained while I was sick. With my second baby I gained the average amount, about 27 lbs. Luckily I didn't catch any colds this time around and my second baby came out at 8 lbs 4 oz. It was a little hard to loose the extra weight, but it melted away after a few months. Congratulations on your pregnancy! How far along are you?

I gained about 45-50 lbs when I was prego with Stephanie. I immediately lost 10 lbs right afterwards when I weighed myself a few days later then lost about 7 more after I came home. It's 18 months later and I weigh about 135. I was 126 when I got prego. I'm happy with my weight though I think I am gaining a little cause of the holidays and stress. I think it's normal to lose a few lbs when you are pregnant like at the beginning.

Please replax and don't worry about it. Everything will be alright. My weight was 45 kgs before. Finally my weight was over 60 kgs. I had a very good appetite and I always felt hungry. And finally I tried to eat less because I would gain 0.5 kg just for one banana. I was afraid my weight would increase so much and I would have difficulties to labour my baby. After my baby was born, my weight got lighter so quickly. Perhaps I hardly had good sleep because I had to wake up to see whether my baby was OK. And I feel very nervous and I know I have to be responsible to it. Perhaps due to these reasons, my weight lost and right now I was about 47 kgs.

I'M not really worried about it :) I was just curious about other pregnancy to see if it happen often :) I have to see a nutritionist for my pregnancy diabates and she ask me if I could eat more. I already eat more then what I was eating ebfore. I'M always hungry, but I can't eat things with sugar lol I only eat fruit, vegetable and a lot of meat lol But My doctor told me that the baby was growing normally :)

I was pregnant almost 3 years ago I gained about 14 Kg. But with that weight people said that I didn't look fat coz the only part is getting bigger was my tummy. People even thought that I had twins. After I gave birth I loose 7 Kg. I don't have a maid in my house, so as soon as I got back from the hospital I had to do my daily chorus alone and taking care of the baby all by myself, I did put a lot of contribution for losing weight. When my baby was 3 months old, I already reach my normal weight. I even can say that I didn't really have difficult time to loose my baby weight. As long as the baby is growing healthy I don't think the weight are really a problem, I think it's only about genetic thing. Some women pregnant with huge number of weight gain and some just bring little gain. It can be the same measure with every women. But anyway..congratulation for you as a mother to be.. I hope everything will go well and the baby will born healthy

Im still pregnant and i gained about 35 pounds. My weight gain is starting to slow down though. 2 weeks ago i only gained one pound. And then last week i lost 4.5 pounds. I was completely shocked by both of those. How far along are you? Im almost 37 weeks so i dont have much longer to go. They say when you get further along its normal for you to lose weight. Hopefully the rest of this will come off.

When I was pregnant I gained weight. I become big. But it is not too much. I also watch what I am eating. But after I gave birth my original body is not the same. Of course there are the fats in my tummy and my bust became big. Now, it's more than one year and I am slowly returning to my old body.

Every pregnancy i've had i've mainly gained the weight the baby weighs and no excess weight such as fat or anything. A few weeks after i had my stillborn daughter and my son, i lost all the weight i gained due to being pregnant. I am pregnant now and its the same as before, but oviously i don't know how long it will take me to lose the weight after the baby is born. ~Joeys wife

i gained 30 lbs being pregnant...i didn't even look pregnant really until the last month, and even then people didn't believe the baby was due any day as long as baby seems healthy and you are eating, i wouldn't worry about weight too much...25 lbs to gain over 9 months is totally normal. I am having a hard time getting these pounds off now the baby is here though!! I really miss my old clothes...i am nursing though, so can't go too crazy on diet...
