I'm 36+2 and I've gained almost 50 lbs. A lot of weight gain isn't always a bad thing - every pregnancy and every woman is different. Just make sure you're eating healthy throughout your pregnancy and remaining active. I've your body had healed after giving birth you can begin to exercise and wirk the remaining weight off :-)

Breastfeeding helps a lot.  I found that wearing my babies So I could get up and move around, but still have the closeness with them.  If not for wearing them, I would have probably spent way more te.on the couch.  Make sure to get outside (with other moms and kids is best, maybe join a mommy group with other moms who have babies the same age) or to the mall for walking. Walking you can do with a stroller or wearing the baby, and you can do it earlier after delivery than most other forms of exercise.   Good luck...having the support of other moms in the same position is not only good from the perspective of having someone to relate too on weight loss,  but it is important for your overall well being.   Happy mommy= healthier mommy.
