    Lourdesong, sorry to hear things aren't going to plan, but you still have all to play for! Pregnancy messes with our bodies in so many ways, and some women become so efficient at conserving energy/using it wisely that straight forward calorie counts may not work. So try to be super careful with your logging for a while and you are still gaining over perhaps re-consider your targets.

    I have been lucky and done much better than expected, or than I have in my first three pregnancies. I attribute a good chunk of this to my daily exercise bike sessions. That thing is worth it's weight in gold :)

    Week - weekly change - total change:
    25 w: 1.3 Total: -2.3
    26 w: 0.2 Total: -2.1
    27 w: 1.8 Total: -0.3
    28 w: 1.8 Total: 1.5
    29 w: 0.7 Total: 2.1
    30 w: 0.7 Total: 2.8
    31 w: -0.2 Total: 2.6
    32 w: -0.2 Total: 2.3
    33 w: -0.9 Total: 1.5
    34 w: 0.4 Total: 1.9

    Growth scan yesterday estimated baby is just over 5 lbs now, so I am officially down 3 pounds -and that's without considering extra blood, fluids, amniotic fluid, placenta etc.

    Now all I have to do is back away from the ice creams that have been sneaking in on a regular basis lately.....

    Oh man. I'm at week 11 and have not gained anything yet. I started around 152, lost to 149 and am back at 152 at 11 weeks. I'm so scared to gain a ton like I did with my second. I ate everything in sight and gained 40-45 lbs! It was terrible to get rid of.

    This group has lots of active users but I couldn't find an active group for postpartum weight loss so have set one up.http://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/group/113945-fit-fabulous-postpartum

    Good luck with your pregnancies and hopefully see you in the postpartum group soon! x

    I am currently 25wk 4 days and have gained 12 lbs at this point, i am just now back into a workout routine though and healthier eating. Really hoping to keep the gain below 25lbs. i gained around 40 with my first and never did get it all off before starting this pregnancy. If you have any tips with certain foods or fitness workouts let me know :)

    I'm still not weighting myself at home which has been good for me, I'm not longer obsessing over it. My weight gain has slowed down a lot, which is good. I've gained 20lbs and I'm almost at the end of the second trimester, not amazing but not terrible either. I've been eating at maintenance and exercising daily so I think I might just be someone who gains in pregnancy. Even if I gain a pound a week for the rest of my pregnancy I should still end up around 30-35lbs.

    I'm 20 weeks and up 12 lbs--and dang proud considering how much I had gained by halfway last time around! I do hope to slow my gain a tad though to stay under my final goal of 30 lbs.

    Keep in mind I was overweight when I got pregnant. That definitely plays a factor. I already have some extra chub to go to that baby lol I bet working out throughout your pregnancy will help you drop that weight very easily after you have your little one, so keep your chin up. It's all worth it in the end, I promise! :smile:

    We're all different... Also, your pre-pregnancy weight determines how much you should gain according to my doctor... So try not to worry about it! You're doing great, there is little you can do at this point.

    I'm 29 weeks and also up almost 20 pounds. I'm ok with it, and so is mt doctor. I seem to gain a little less in the end, but we'll see how it goes this time around.

    I don't want to stress about it too much, we can just focus on losing the weight after giving birth :)

    Thanks everyone! I appreciate your support. When I brought it up with my doctor she was not worried at all and said my weight gain was right on track. I'm 29 weeks so there isn't too long to go now anyways!

    My weight is going on a lot more quickly now, I had a small appetite in my first trimester and my metabolism seems to have sped up in pregnancy. I'm more worried about post partum weight gain as last time I gained around 30lbs whist breastfeeding and could only lose it after we stopped!
