i've gained about 19 in 20 weeks, everyone gains different amounts of weight. i eat a lot but i'm small so i was also advised to gain quite a bit of weight. i'm happy, glad to know my baby's healthy. i was a bit concerned at first too though.
I know what you mean! With my son I gained like 18 pounds the whole pregnancy and he was a big boy so lost it all within a week or two... with this one I gained 9 pounds by my 13-14 week appt... I told the nurse I was sure the scales were broken I havent ate any more then before I was pregnant probably less in first trimester because I was either sick or full feeling all the time, so no idea how this happened. Going to try to just watch for the rest of the pregnancy to keep it to a minimum
If you're concerned just focus on eating more vegetables and fewer refined carbs like pastas/breads. Make sure the grains you eat are whole grains. In the end you'll gain what you should as long as you aren't eating the wrong things
dont worry your be surprised how quick it comes off after pregnancy (as long as your active) i dont even look at the scales anymore you cant exactly go on a diet when your pregnant can ya lol and 18lbs dosent sound all that much concidering your almost halfway through the pregnancy x
