My dr is ok with it so far. I just need to stay about 4lbs. A month here on out. I am super frustrated at how easy it is coming on, but on a good note I did only gain 4 for the last appt. I am 25 weeks now and the baby is measuring two weeks ahead now so I am very anxious to get the glucose test on the 26th. Dr said he isn't worried but I am baffled as to why this pregnancy is so different with weight. I am a big worrier so forgive my nutty posts. Lol
Seconding Allison on this one. For a woman of average bmi, it's recommended that you gain around 5lbs the first trimester and about a pound a week during the second and third trimesters. I'm not overweight, but I do have a significant risk for preeclampsia again, and at my last appointment my MFM was a little concerned that I hadn't gained more than 10 pounds at 22 weeks (yay, "morning" sickness). I gained 30 pounds with my last baby, and everyone was pretty pleased with that amount. What has your doctor said? A lot of it really depends on your size prior to pregnancy.
Every pregnancy is different. I am 24 weeks and with this pregnancy I have only gained about 5 lbs and had gained more with my daughter. With my daughter- the end of the 2nd trimester is when I gained almost all of my weight. My doctor is not concerned as baby is growing well and I am eating healthy. The one I think I would be concerned about is too much weight gain in short time- because it could be caused by edema/swelling connected to PR. What has your doc said about it?
I am curious as to how much weight have ppl gained by 24 weeks. I am at 24 lbs. It is strange for me because I only gained 16 total with my last one and this one seems to be so different. I am thankful because the preg is going much better but man I am a lot older now and freaked it is too much too fast.
