    Thank you all for your kind words! Will be going away in September once we've saved up some money (weddings are so expensive!) X

    Height: 5'8
    Age: 31, 2nd pregnancy
    Goal to Gain: 11-20
    SW: 200

    Week 8: 201.7 (+1.7)
    Week 9: 202.8 (+1.1/+2.8)
    Week 10: 204.5 (+1.7/+4.5)
    Week 11: 205.1 (+0.6/+5.1)
    Week 12: 205.5 (+0.4/+5.5)
    Week 13: 206.5 (+1/+6.5)
    Week 14: 208.3 (+2.2/+8.3)
    Week 15: 208.3 (+0/+8.3)
    Week 16: 208.1 (-0.2/+8.1)
    Week 17: 210.5 (+2.4/+10.5)

    Not off to the greatest start, have really improved my diet since the first trimester carb-fest, but still put on 2.4lb last week...eeeek! I really upped the exercise last week so hoping I'm retaining a bit of water. Over halfway to my max goal and only 17weeks, has anyone managed to reign it in during the second half of their pregnancy and slow the gain?

    31 yo and 1st pregnancy

    Week 14: 169.6 (-0.8/+1.4)
    Week 15: 169.6 (+0.0/+1.4)
    Week 16: 171.2 (+1.6/+3.2)
    Week 17: 171.0 (-0.2/+3.0)
    Week 18: 171.8 (+0.8/+3.8)

    Yesterday my doctors scale had me at 171.4 with clothes even though my home scale said ~173, so not sure if i need new batteries or they do. I've been very sick so going down this week is not surprising.

    @phreekles congrats!!!
    @artgalchitown I'm so happy for you.

    Height: 5'1.5"
    SW- 118 ( I gained weight from the winter and being sad about the miscarriage).
    Week12: 122
    Week 16: 120 (net gain 2 pounds).
    Week 21: technically I'll be 21 weeks on Saturday 121 (net gain 3 pounds)
    Week 25: 122.8 (net gain 4.8 pounds)
    Week 29: 124.4 (net gain 6.4 pounds).

    I only weigh myself at doctor's office. My doctor told me I'm measuring at 26 weeks and to schedule another ultrasound. She wasn't too concerned. She said I was petite and that everyone gains weight differently.

    @RAxB and @wantoldme Thank you! Yes, feeling super relieved :)

    @1fit_mamma I don't have any advice but will say that my gains have been sporadic rather than steady. Some weeks several lbs and others not much. Seems like this kind of thing can really vary based on the mamma and the baby. You're doing great!

    170 prepregnancy weight, at 185 now: 25 weeks pregnant, 5'4"... I'm looking like I'm due any day but I still have 4 more months! Started walking every other morning for an hour, hopefully that slows my gaining down.

    week 31: 228 (+18)
    week 32: 227 (+17)
    week 33: 228.2 (+18.2)
    week 34: 231 (+21)
    week 35: 232.6 (+22.6)

    Need to get back on track. I have been letting my irritation with work get to my eating habits, which obviously isn't helping with keeping weight gain in check or solving any work issues. Silly emotional eating.

    Had a really tough weekend, I guess the kid had a growth spurt because I was just super uncomfortable and distended feeling. Seems like things may have stretched out and adjusted now because I am feeling better today. Definitely starting to see why the 3rd trimester is tough, and how women end up looking forward to labor if it means unloading this thing.

    @artgalchitown As far as protein goes, I'm pescatarian so I'm accustomed to finding non-meat protein sources! Fish and seafood (within moderation and avoiding mercury), tempeh, eggs, nuts (within reason), lentils, quinoa, peas, and yogurt come to the top of my mind. I'm not a huge fan of tofu, but there's that, too. Good luck!

    Week 29: 195.8 (+4.8, +26.8)

    Good grief. I don't know what's happening. I'm definitely retaining water so maybe that's part of the big gain this week. Also was on vacation over the weekend. I thought I ate pretty healthy but I guess I have room for improvement.

    @marianlyn thanks for the tips!

    I had my ultrasound this week. My baby is in the 43rd percentile and I have very low levels of amniotic fluid.

    @karen_thinmint thanks for your concern. I was worried when I first got pregnant how I was going to handle weight gain since I've always been small. Little did I know how difficult it would be to gain weight and eat. My mom and sister were same way.

    @wantoldme are you drinking enough? Had a girlfriend thatwas dehydrated post vacation and had pretty low amniotic fluid levels when she got back she made sure to rehydrate well and it was fine a week or two later.

    As for the 43rd percentile, thats a little below average, but if smaller babies run in your family not sure I would worry that much.

    Feels like I'm growing a bowling ball this week - baby all of a sudden feels very big and heavy and he keeps getting stuck under my ribs which has been really painful especially while sitting or driving for long periods! Have tried to reign it in this week food wise. I've mostly been keeping to my daily calorie total but not always with best food choices. Determined to do better this week and drink more water!
