I'm curious to know if women tend to gain less with their second(third, fourth...) pregnancies than the first. I know that factors such as illness and genetics play a roll in this but I couldn't find a similar poll or study. I want to know what I'm in for this time around :)
Did you gain more, less, or about the same amount of weight during subsequent pregnancies?
hello well for my first i gained about 30lbs, second 30lbs, third bby about 50 or 60 lbs, n my forth baby I only gained about 20lbs(she was four lbs) and all my pregnancies after delivery I end up on size 1 or 3. with this pregnancy I have gained about 6lbs n im 13wks 5days... I guess it just depends on how nig the baby is...
with my first pregnancy i was at 150lb before pregnancy then by the time labor came i was at 210lb so i have gained about 60lb with that one and i had a boy, with my second with my daughter i was at 160lb and i went up to 198lb and i gained about 38lb with her, then with this pregnancy another lil girl right now im at 30lb that iv gained but my before pregnancy weight was 165 and im 33w0d pregnant and still have about 7 more weeks or a few weeks less.
I gained loads of weight first time, mostly because I worked full time in an office so was sitting down all day, would go home, eat and sleep. Second time and this time I have had kids to deal with, so sitting down all the time isnt an option!
Very interesting!!! Thanks for all of the responses. It looks like the trend is to gain less with subsequent pregnancies or about the same. A lot less women gain more based on this informal poll and the comments.
stacey10...it is interesting you said your Winter babies you gain more. I just read an article about how Summer babies tend to cause more weight gain because of water retention. I eat heavier foods in the Winter. My son was a winter baby and this one will be too (God willing). I gained 25 with him. Not bad at all.
Thanks again for the comments. Keep adding them if you have more to say.
