    I just got back from my OB/Prenatal appt. going to be 31 weeks tomorrow. well at my appt on January 10 I had gained 6 lbs in two weeks...back today for another appt and have gained another 7lbs in two weeks. my doctor seems a bit worried and told me to start walking. Told him when I do spend a good amount of time on my feet or walking I start spotting. He told me to walk…. Feeling confused and would also like to know if there are any effect to excessive weight gain? Thanks any help/advice is appreciated!



    Tuesday 18th: This what ended me in labor and delivery
    afternoon started out as irregular unpainful bh no pink discharge/spotting. around 6pm bh became regular and very painful couldnt focus and hurt so bad they made me cry. 4 bm's not my norm at all. racing heart-high bp and couldnt catch my breath. Went into L&D and was told it was probably because I was dehydrated they gave me two VE and said I wasnt dilated but cervix was very soft monitored me for 3 hours and gave me 2L of IV fluids. Discharge instructions are pelvic rest, no caffeine, increase fluid intake, stay off my feet and to call back if I have 6 contractions/hr.

    its not that bad just try to excercise as you clean or when you go to the store park furthwer away and walk more


    what was your size before being pregnant if you don't mind they say the smaller you are you gain more

    try not to worry hun you'll lose it and baby will be healthy

    Hey, gees I wouldnt worry. Your weight gain doesnt seem that bad to me. Im only a little bit behind but gained a lot of mine at the start. I read the other day that soon baby starts to put on half a pound a week (I think?) around how far we are. Other woman on here have gained a lot more than that so I would just look after yourself and that little one of yours as you only have 9 more weeks to go and Im sure the weight will come off after baby is born :)

    I agree - I have not seen anyone on this thread that I think should be worried! I have gained 25 myself so you guys don't worry about those 30's and 40's! My doc has said I'm doing GREAT with weight and she's very happy; I am shocked that any doc would think 30 is too much for 30-ish weeks!! I'm 33 weeks today and have gained exactly 25lbs. I'm expecting to top out around 30 since we still have a few weeks to go. PLEASE don't any of you ladies feel like you are fat!! None of the weights shown sound at all unusual to me!

    I'm 5'2" and started out at 118; today I am 143. I'm all bump so I am not sweating it; we had our 3D ultrasound yesterday and our little butterball is already almost 5.5 pounds. So I know between his weight, plus extra in boobs, placenta, fluid, water retention etc., I'm figuring all but about 5 of my 25 is totally baby related.

    Don't stress ladies!!

    DAMN you look good, Sammy!

    I'd follow your doctor's instructions and walk - but take it easy and stop if you have any issues at all.

    But as for the weight gain? I wouldn't worry too much. I've gained about 29 pounds at almost 32 weeks (it's hard to say because lately it's been fluctuating a lot!). My doctor isn't worried.

    And go easy on yourself hon!

    Thanks ladies for all the encouraging words and advice given its sure make me feel better than I did leaving the doctor's office earlier today. Went on a walk for about 25 minutes...as soon as I walked in the door I started getting shooting pains in my cervix but they stopped shortly after sitting and kicking my feet up for a bit. thanks again, I really appreciate your replies!

    I have gained about 30 pounds at 30 weeks.
    I was 132lbs before pregnancy and I'm 5'9.

    I wouldn't worry about your weight gain, as long as your face isn't starting to look puffy.
    I think you look great!

    About the walking, I wouldn't do it if I were you.
    If it were me, I'd try eating healthy and keep yourself relaxed and don't walk for long periods of time as you said you just did and you got shooting pains in your cervix.
    You'll lose the weight after the baby is born I'm sure and right now baby is more important than you gaining weight (i think).
    So relax, put your feet up and NO you are not fat :hugs:
