    How much has everyone gained at this point?

    I'm 20 weeks along and gained 3.5 lbs. I'm happy with it, since with each of my other pregnancies I had gained 14-15 at this point. But I also started those pregnancies about 30 lbs lighter!

    10 weeks 12lbs but I'm sure some was due to going on a 2 week cruise before I knew I was pregnant

    Trying very hard to keep it around this mark, it's so disheartening that my clothes feel tighter

    20 weeks tomorrow and as of this morning I'm up 8 lbs. I gained 40 lbs in each of my other 2 pregnancies so I'm really hoping to keep it lower this time. I started at a healthy BMI, but losing the weight with 3 kids at home will be challenging!

    35 weeks today and have gained 27 lbs and am at 191 now. I did drop down to 161 at my lowest (in the 1st trimester). I am pleased, I look at myself and feel healthy and beautiful! I have maintained a very steady workout plan and have continued to enter all food and exercise into MFP so that I stay in the habit. :-) I am sure all you Mama's are looking awesome and doing great!

    I wish I had kept up with MFP when I found out I was pregnant. Huge wake up call when at my 27 week appointment I had gained a total of 30 pounds!! I cut out all unhealthy carbs and have gotten back to my fruits and veggies and lean protein. 10 days later and my swelling has gone down and my back is no longer killing me every day! My doctor said to just maintain my weight and don't beat myself up over a dish of ice cream or my upcoming trip to Disney in 2 weeks :-)

    I'm 22 weeks and have gained 13 pounds. More than I would like (especially since little man only weighs about one pound), but still within a healthy range. I've been eating a lot of crap lately, so I am going to make more of an effort to eat better quality foods and decrease the sugars. It's difficult when all I crave is chocolate!

    If you are over a certain weight, you can lose safely. I am only 6 weeks, so I haven't gained anything yet. I am hoping to come out of my first trimester with no weight gain, and then gain 1/2 pound/week during 2nd tri and a pound a week during 3rd tri. I am about 25 pounds overweight, so it's ok if I don't gain a huge amount.

    I am 21 weeks and have gained 10 pounds. I haven't been exercising though - I really need to just get up and do it! I just haven't wanted to in the evenings after work.

    I'm 27 weeks and I have gained about 25 lbs. I just started tracking what I eat and exercising a month ago. Hopefully I won't gain any more unnecessary weight :/

    I am 13 weeks and have already gained 9 lbs :( I don't know how it was possible to gain so much when I have hardly ate and throw everything up :( BUT I have only been able to stomache carbs and wasn't logging in. SO now I am working out again and eating way better. Hopefully I won't gain anything this trimester, or least very little!

    I am in the same boat. I am 18 weeks and have gained 12 lbs, but put on about 10 before I got pregnant. I just got back to logging and finally have the energy to exercise again, so I hope I don't gain anymore unnecessary weight!! Especially since it's going to be a long hot summer for me :embarassed:

    I am 33 weeks pregnant and have put on 1.5 stone. I have been healthy eating but no excercise due to feeling knackered/bad back all the time.
    I have not looged any food diary during my pregnancy. Does anyone know what you should change your perameters to, eg, gain 2 pound etc, as i have also not altered that on my profile as well.

    No matter what I do (count calories, exercises, etc...) I gain on average a pound a week. :( I'm at about 36 pounds at 35 weeks. At least I haven't gained anything in the past 2 weeks. I'm already 6 pounds over what I wanted to gain with this pregnancy though, which completely bums me out. Everyone keeps telling me it's all in my belly and that I still look tiny. I don't see it. :(
