Weight gain by 22 weeks


So I had my regular OB appt today, and the Nurse midwife said my weight had spiked from my last visit, 8 pounds. So thats like 2lbs gained a week since my last appt.
I weighed 124 at my first OB apt, and today I was 139. So thats where I am at 22 weeks. I felt ashamed, like Ive gained to much to fast. Thats how she made me feel. :/
Thats 15lbs total since the beginning. Im scared I will keep gaining 2 lbs a week, and she said that would be bad. I just went and got lean cuisines...
I've never in my life had to worry about what I eat. I just eat whatever and never gain, except now.
I haven't changed my eating habits except I've been a lot more lenient on how often I can have a desert. And I have had a craving of iced mochas and have been having one almost every other day for a week and a half. And if I want ice-cream at chikfila, I tell my husband hop in the car, we are going. So I guess I should def chill on those types on things.
Hows your weight doing at around 22 weeks?

I was 130lbs when I fell pregnant and now I'm 154lbs that's a huge 24lbs weight gain but I seriously dunno where else it's gone too apart from my stomach. My arms and thighs etc aren't much bigger (I can still get my skinny jeans on) my boobs size has gone from a B to a DD.

I really wouldn't worry about it I'm probably way over already recommended weight for the whole pregnancy at 22weeks.

I've worried about my weight for years I used to restrict myself to 800 calories a day and since being pregnant I've eaten what I want and as much as I like. Because I know when the baby's here I can lose it all again and will be so busy with the baby it will probably drop off.

As long as your happy and baby is healthy it's ok now tuck into some yummy cake

I was exactly the same in my first ppregnancy. I gained 50 pounds all together. I started with 129 and ended soomewhere in 180. But don't worry, just eat whatever you want, your baby probably needs all this weight.
Now in my second pregnancy it is completely different. Im 14 weeks and lost 10 lb so far. No gain yet.
And I am eating about the same as I did in my first, so I guess it is not really up to you how much you gain. And even if you put on way too much, you will loose it all!

Did you lose it all after? And how soon after if so?

I wouldn't be eating LeanCuisines if I were you. They are full of processed crap especially the 'meat'.

Wow you gained over 4 stone? how? lol
and how did you loose it all?

I wouldnt advise eating what you want, i havnt gained v much but my baby is a good weight so you dont need to gorge and pile on loads of weight for your baby to gain weight!

Eat healthy and a bit of junk food is ok but the baby needs good nutrious food aswell

I am 22 weeks and have gained 13lbs, 3 since my last visit at 20w. I started at 148. My last pregnancy I started at 148 as well but gained 50lbs. I had complications with birth and had emergency c section due to babes large size. This time around Doc is strict about my weight and I am nervous about my 24w appointment. It sucks and we shouldn't feel ashamed or afraid of what our docs say. Just eat when your hungry and try to make the right choice ( instead of munching on chips or snacks eat an apple and a sandwich) or have 1 or 2 cookies instead of 4 or 5.

I am a couple days shy of 22 weeks and have gained 9 pounds. However, because my clinic weighs me in the afternoon after I've been eating and drinking all day, my weight is recorded as being 11 pounds up at my 20wk appt. My MD said my weight gain is okay and not to worry. I was even slightly overweight to begin with; could have stood to lose 10-15 pounds before getting pregnant.
