    Yikes! Starting to gain a little more than I want. I’m back to tracking again, so hopefully I can slow it down. I’ve been SO hungry lately.

    Your weight gain is completely reasonable, don't stress too much about it. Weeks 18-26 are supposed to be more rapid weight gain weeks, if you look at the research. Weight gain usually isn't completely linear with periods of more rapid weight gain and periods of slower weight gain. If you are hungry, don't feel like you have to deprive yourself, just chose healthy, filling options.

    I am 19.5 weeks and have gained 20 pounds already. The last 8 pounds seems to have come on in less than a week. Starting to feel a little discouraged, since my plan was to gain only 25 pounds the entire pregnancy. I am 5'6, 31 yo, and pre-pregnancy weight was 150, which is right at the top mark of a healthy BMI range for me. Previously, over the past year I have lost 35 pounds, and now I have regained much of that in less than 20 weeks, which seems crazy. My belly is starting to show, but it's not that large, so I am fairly certain that the weight I had gained so far has gone directly to my legs and butt and other unwanted places. During the first trimester, I gained 10 pounds, as eating was the only way to relieve nausea. Also previously I had a very clean diet, with plenty of vegetables and little fat, and now I have definitely been eating more fat and I have a strong aversion to some of my favourite vegetables.

    Does anyone have any advice? I know I have to slow down on the weight gain at this point, but I'm also worried that not eating enough might harm the baby.

    If the last 8 pounds have come on in the last week or so, I’d contact your doctor. It could be indicative of swelling/fluid retention. A 3-4+ pound increase in one week is grounds for at least investigation!

    I had a really hard time gaining weight my first pregnancy, this pregnancy that hasn't been an issue. I'm measuring right on track rather than consistently measuring small which I'm quite happy about.

    Hi!

    I am currently 28 weeks pregnant with my second child. I have re-joined MFP as I need to keep track of my calories!! I’ve been over indulging and using pregnancy as an excuse and have gained 2 stone (28lb) so far. I’ve set my calories to 2200 a day and hope this will help me pick better choices and stop me from eating rubbish snacks.

    I already feel like things are going so slow! I want to hear the heartbeat so bad... even though it'll be 6 weeks till I can at the earliest. I got the same group of midwives as my last pregnancy so I'm happy about that!
