21 weeks. I'm 16 lbs. Less than prepregnancy weight. :hide. I got reprimanded last dr. visit. (He said at 20 weeks, I should've gained about 10 lbs.)

I've gotta gain 2 lbs. by Thursday(next Dr. Visit). I hate all meats, bread, milk--- just been weird this time. Also, I'm eating healthy and not indulging in powdered donuts or ice cream like I did with the rest of my kiddos. I always pile it on at the end so I'm not too worried since baby's growth is just fine.

Re: The weight gain thread

21 weeks tomorrow and I believe I'm up ~9 lbs. I gained 35 lbs with my son so I'm interested to see what happens this time around!

We all have our struggles! I can't seem to eat enough in one sitting to satisfy me. There just isn't enough room in my stomach right now. So I tend to go for the heartier foods instead of the fruits and veggies. I can manage a small spinach salad and it will hold me if I put cheese, egg, and plenty of dressing on it.

I AM eating a good bit of Ben and Jerry's ice cream. I know that baby needs the fat for brain development and I can't eat much of it at once anyway!

I don't remember exactly when I put it on, but my total weight gain has been the same with all my pregnancies so far. The only difference (about 10 pounds) has been the starting point.

Re: The weight gain thread

I'm feeling hungry today and around 20-22 weeks is when I start piling weight on. Key lime pie sounds delicious. I'm sure the pounds are coming, it's just a matter of time.

I have gained anywhere from 21 pounds to 42 pounds with my pregnancies. The 42 pound gain was from strawberry shortcake (the good kind with REAL whipped cream, aka nothing but FAT).

Melissa-I craved Ben and Jerrys (choc. fudge brownie) with 2 of my babies--good stuff!
