weight gain in 3rd trimester

Aug 28, 2012 - 2 comments

My weight has been pretty good through this whole pregnancy. I'm a little nervous about the end though. I hear crazy stories about women putting on 30 plus pounds the last trimester. I'm trying to keep it as steady as possible. I jump all over the place all the time because of water retention I believe. I wonder how I can pevent too much water retention? i can feel Brooke more when I'm not bloated which i love. I'm just going to keep walking/  moving daily and try to drink my water. Oh and ry to stay away from mexican food. That stuff is rediculous in the sodium dept.

If you've been pretty steady through the first two trimesters, there is really no reason to fear a 30lb gain in the third.  Just keep doing what you're doing.  There isn't much to fight off the bloat though.  However, summer will be over soon, so hopefully you won't have to deal with the water retention for too long.  Personally, I feel like my feet could explode at any moment!  Just drink plenty of fluids and stay active and you'll do just fine!  Good luck!! :)
