I think I have gained a total of 30 pounds so far. I can't believe it's almost time! PetiteWonder you are right on target. I always gain the most I think in the 2nd trimester it seems.
I have gained 24 lbs in 37 weeks.... For the last 4 weeks, I have been gaining about 2 lbs per week.. I heard its normal for that to slow down after 37 weeks so I am interested to see what I will weigh next week.
I am up to 164 now and I am at 36.5 weeks so not long now. Having a normal weight gain. It's getting tight in there and I am running out of space, lol
I gained 4 lbs in 2 weeks bringing my total to 27 lbs at 34 weeks.
Almost 36 weeks and gained 4 1/2 pounds total and I'm about to deliver anyday now :)
Gained 4 lbs since my last weigh in 2 weeks ago at the doctors.
Sounds like everyone is pretty much right on target with their weight gain. I am noticing I am getting nauseated and sick more so now with my stomach running out of room, but that is all part of it. Gotta remember to eat more frequently instead of so much at one time.
my weight's gone back done a tad, so i say the weight gain's definitely from water retention! so far for the most part it's been holding steady. i'm still aiming for only 30-35 lb weight gain from this pregnancy when all is said and done, so we'll see. :)
I went up to 120.8 on my scale.. its good to be gaining weight... some might be water retention but even weighing myself in the AM when im empty has gone up so i am happy... Approximate weight gain is around 20 lbs so i am right on target...
Towards the end here I am being affected by the food and the sodium and too by me being on my feet a lot. I can retain a few pounds daily with this which can be frustrating on the scale, so I am just trying to be relaxed about it and not check as much as I was. The baby is growing and moving so that's all that matters :D
I've gained 22 lbs, alot less than my other pregnancies thus far, so I'm happy about that, but just during the last 3 week I gained a little over 6 lbs, really in only 3 weeks. Hope it's just baby. :) Ok probably not, but I'm still happy that my total for me hasn't been that bad. I'm a little bloated again too so I wonder if that has anything to do with this last weigh in. wishful thinking I'm sure.
I ordered my postpartum girdle the other day to help after birth with reshaping me. I agree with the food, ugh if I go off my little rocker it shows on that scale really quick with the swelling. Just eating blander food yesterday, like rice, beans and veggies made it go down 2.5 pounds.
don't feel too bad ladies. i'm 33 weeks and have already gained 26 or 27 pounds. i say it's definitely the food. i've had a lot of food this week that's high in sodium. so i'm blaming it on the water retention. of course, we'll see what the scale says in the next few days. so far, my weight gain's been pretty steady. as long as i don't gain too much from now until the delivery, i think i'll be okay. :)
32 Weeks tomorrow and up 22 lbs = (
I got a new scale today and it says im 118.4 so i am happy =P
I'll be 34 weeks tomorrow and have only gained 3 pounds total. I had a growth scan yesterday due to poor weight gain but baby is PERFECT! He's 4lbs 11oz +/- 6oz, I'm betting on the extra because he feels at least 5lbs to me.
The past few days my scale hiked up, but I had swelling and I think it was because of me eating more sodium and certain foods that I don't normally eat a lot of (meat). Grrr
I caved and got on the scale again. 34 weeks and 22 pounds. UGH
I do my weigh ins at night here after dinner generally..
the doctos office is a bit more sporadic.. but the last 4 weigh ins i have had were between 10am and 1 30pm
Don't worry even though its hard not to. For myself I had been concerned about not gaining weight so much in this trimester because of the "rule of thumb" being a pound a week in the last trimester. But like you said too I could be losing muscle mass and not aware of that. I am more squishy of course even though my weight has not changed and the baby is plumping out my belly and moving which is my #1 reassurance.
If this helps, one thing I always forget is to make sure you weigh yourself at the same time every day. If you do morning weigh ins keep it like that. I always weigh less in the morning and at night weigh a few pounds more.
Went to the doctors today and on her scale I only weighed 116.. That is what I weighed at 30 weeks.. at 31 and 32 weeks at the hospital scale I weighed 117.4..
it is frustrating me... I hit 118 on my scale last night after consistently weighing between 116.8 and 117.6 on my scale for the last week...
Dont get me wrong I like the idea of returning to a very small size after birth.. but the weight gain is oneo f the many reassurances that things are progressing..
I could be losing muscle mass from being on bed rest but hopefully when I go back at 35 weeks (being optimistic as a i determined to not have this baby before then), I had to see an increase.
I definitely am very glad I do not have a high stress job situation right now. I was about 80 hours a week at one point right before we were pregnant and then lost two of my jobs. Granted you have the financial stress to cope with, but if I have to look at it in a positive way, maybe that was supposed to happen so I could carry the pregnancy to term. I've had to "learn" to take it easy. Now don't get me wrong... it seems like now I am putting extra hours in on our house and getting things done as much as I can before the baby gets here. Not long now at all!
I had BH that actually woke me up the other night so my body is preparing :D
It may be helping.. My contractions have gone down quite a bit from the beginning of last week... though I still have some cramping, which is unsettling off and on... It may have helped who knows.. I had a scan on Monday to check for cervical changes over the week I was in the hospital, and there was no change, which is why they let me go home.
Overall its probably better for my pregnancy to be off for now... I work a pretty hectic high stress job (though not every day is bad but there can be alot of crisis situations)... My work also has 50+ stairs that on an average shift I go up and down over 10 times if trying to avoid doing the stairs.. As well its very fast pace and though are very flexible cannot always guarantee solid breaks due to the environment.. I was having alot of leg pain and back pain from the stairs, etc that I am not having anymore so thats a plus...
Bedrest at home is not nearly as bad as it was in the hospital... I am just lucky I do not have other children.. You cannot do this if you have other kids... I really only have to make it about another week and a half like this then I can start doing light things around the house.. So ill probably start washing the baby stuff at that point, organizing the room, etc...
Poor thing, is it helping taking it easy? I just noticed on my tracker that I have been holding the same weight for almost a month. My belly is getting bigger, but surprised the weight isn't changing. Anyone else had this happen?
On Sunday we will be 33 weeks.
