Re: weight gain

I started off weighing 115
I now weigh (37 weeks) 138

I read that at the end of your pregnancy you should stop gaining weight, but I'm still VERY hungry and still gaining. Oh well!

Does anyone know when my appetite is supposed to stop?

I actually thought that the end of pregnancy is when you gain the most weight? Something like... the last month the babys weight doubles. Not sure how accurate this is.. Im going to do some research now. I too would like to know about this.

Re: weight gain

Oh you girls are so lucky.

Starting weight: 138
Current weight: 180ish
31 weeks

I gained just over 60 lbs with ds but lost 35 within 2 weeks. I figure that was all water. I'm crossing my fingers that this time is the same since I eat very healthy and still keep packing on the pounds

Re: weight gain

Almac-You do gain a lot of weight in the last trimester, but then it slows down or stops the last couple of weeks....or so I've read.

So total so far : 14lbs ( not so bad lol )

Re: weight gain

Starting weight: 140
Weight now: 165 ( at 38 weeks )

Total (2 weeks to go) : 25 lbs*

p.s- I gained 10 of these lbs in the last 1 1/2 months, so, I believe that there was substantial growth during these last weeks! My appetite has increased in the last few weeks quite a bit. I have been craving a lot of Organic milk and orange juice, which must be needed by my baby.

I have recently dropped too! I was measuring 37 cm : now: 32 cm!!!

Time is becoming really near now : 2 weeks until due date, but my 16 month old boy was born at 38 weeks, so we will see.

One more note: I gained 30 lbs with my son and all the weight came off within 3 months with running for 15 min of a treadmill everyother day
2 weeks after I delivered (when I stopped bledding) and also with breastfeeding! I actually needed more calories and was more hungry when I was breastfeeding.

Re: weight gain

Starting Weight: 118 lbs. (5'8")
Current Weight: 153 lbs.
36 wks.

I weighed exactly 160lbs. when I delivered ds and dd, so I'm interested to see if I go over this time. After each birth I lost the weight within a few wks, but I think it is due to a combination of breastfeeding after delivery and working out during pregnancy. I didn't start back working out after the births of ds and dd until they were probably a year old or so. I'm not sure if I'll work out till the end of this pregnancy because I am just worn out lately, but I know it makes labor easier and recovery quicker so I'm going to try.

Re: weight gain

Starting Weight: 115 lbs. (5'3")
Current Weight: 115 lbs.
6 - 7 wks. Too early to tell

ok, this is going to be long. I found this as a rule of thumb to eat healthy during pregnancy. Also, doesn't mean that you are eating healthy you won't gain weight, watch out for quantity (calory intake). With this baby, I have made a lot of changes in my diet. I'm even buying all my meats organic.

***********************************
Low Carbohydrates and Pregnancy

You’re probably as confused and tired as I am with all the carbohydrate craziness…the books, the grocery store foods, the restaurant menus, the ads, and the water-cooler conversations. This is called: “Please KISS Me” plan on carbohydrate control (Please Keep It So Simple for Me).

It contains only 3 simple rules:

RULE 1: Increase the following in your diet:
1. Fruits (2-4 servings daily)
2. Vegetables (3-5 servings daily)
3. Whole-Grain Products: bread, muffins, bagels, rolls, pasta, noodles, crackers, cereal, brown rice (6-11 servings daily)
4. Dried beans, peas, legumes (1-2 servings daily)
5. Low-fat and no-fat dairy products (3 servings daily)

RULE 2: Limit the following in your diet to 0-2 servings daily:
1. Fruit Juice
2. Refined Processed White Flour Products: bread, muffins, bagels, rolls, pasta, noodles, crackers, cereal
3. White Rice
4. French Fries
5. Fried Vegetables

RULE 3: Eliminate the following from your diet or eat only on occasion:
1. Cookies
2. Cakes
3. Pies
4. Cookies
5. Candies
6. Sugary Desserts
7. Doughnuts and Pastries
8. Chips, Cola and Carbonated Beverages
9. Sugar, Honey, Syrup, Jam, Jelly, Molasses

That’s it! A simple, effective carbohydrate-controlling system to use during your pregnancy. You’ll reap the countless benefits of complex carbohydrates and fiber. Yet, you will be able to monitor and control excessive weight gain and experience appetite control. The result will be a safe, healthy diet to follow during pregnancy.
