Re: Gained 8 lbs in < 10 weeks!!!

I gained 8 lbs in one month with this pregnancy, and I did with my 1st pregnancy too. I think it must be how my body deals with the growth spurts of pregnancy. I gained the 8 lbs somewhere in the 18-20 something weeks.

I am 36 weeks and have only gained 22 lbs, so I think I am right on. I believe that we should listen to our bodies and eat when we are hungry and everything will be just fine. I did that with my first son, and he was 7 lbs 7 oz and 2 weeks early~

With my first son, I gained a total of 30 lbs, and was back down to pre-pregnancy weight within about 4 months with breastfeeding, eating when I was hungry, and running for 15 minutes every other day.
