weight gain?

So I was losing weight up until a month or so ago. I'm 27&4 today. Pre pregnancy weight was 154. Beginning of May I weighed 158. I was at the regular doctors today for my cold which turned out to be a sinus/ear infection. I was weighed and I am 166.. Am i gaining to much and to fast?

I don't get the whole weight gain thing. Still confuses and pisses me off. I just posted about this earlier today. I'm 18wks an have gained 11lbs which on paper is "excessive" even though I started out at 116. My doctor says 25-30 lbs is ideal. So I guess that's all that matters and not necessarily when you gain?? Sorry I'm not much help. Lol,  I say don't worry about it. Everyone I know personally have gained about 50 at time I'd delivery. I'd say your fine :) I'm off to eat a chocolate, chocolate chipmuffin and a glass if milk because I'm just o depressed over it!!!!

No you're not you have to remember that you're 27 weeks pregnant with a baby the baby is growing a lot more at this point and you could also be retaining water that happened to me with my first

With my first I gained most of my
weight in the first few months. I just looked fat for awhile till my bump started showing. Lol. For the last few months I barely gained anything. Overall I gained a total of 30 pounds. This time around I've been much more sick so I haven't gained as much right of the bat. Guess every pregnancy is different.
