2nd Pregnancy weight gain

(19 Posts)
Fonzie Wed 10-Aug-05 13:35:20

Just wondered if anybody has experienced similar to me. With DS1, the midwife was forever on at me about not putting on enough weight. This time however, after just having been to midwife this morning, I've put on 5kg in 6 weeks. Is there an average weight gain or is it the usual everybody's different scenario? It would be good to know as otherwise I think I'll pop before I reach week 20! I am 16 weeks tomorrow.
Any advice/similar experiences would be very reassuring.

Hi fonzie, congrats on your pregnancy.

With my dd I hardly put on any weight at all. I don't think I was even showing untill well past the 6 month stage.

I'm currently 23 weeks pregnant and I was looking at piccies of me 9 months pregnant last night with dd. I am as big now (if not bigger) than I was at full term with her!!!!!

I think the average weight gain is as follows:-

1/2 Ib per week for the first 20 weeks then
1 Ib per week for the second 20 weeks making a total average weight gain of
30 Ibs

I'm 23 weeks at the moment and have gained 14Ibs so I'm a little bit over - I'm really hoping I don't put on another 17Ibs!!!!!

I put on tonnes the first time (managed to loose it after) and tonnes the second time (and, ahem...still have to loose some)

i was all bump with ds1, lost it very quickly but i put on 3 stone with ds2 IT WON'T GO!!!!!!!!!!

3 stone each time (babies were 9lb plus) and lost it both times.

grrr at oliveoil!

With DS I put on 4.5 stone in total.

With this one (nearly 35 weeks) I have put on about 3 stone so far.

And I weighed less before getting pregnant with this one than I did before getting pregnant with DS .

Sorry! My mum was the same but she ballooned when she hit 40 so I have 5 years to be smug.

grrrr at PiccadillyCircus

oliveoil Wed 10-Aug-05 15:52:33

I weigh less now than I did before both pregnancies as well.

<runs off>

handlemecarefully Wed 10-Aug-05 15:52:36

My mum gained weight from 35 onwards...and weirdly, I was 35 when I had ds and now fat seems to be attracted to me like a magnet!

PiccadillyCircus Wed 10-Aug-05 15:52:56

Sorry. But don't know what will happen after this one (hope I have my mum's genes - she is definitely a mini-mum )

handlemecarefully Wed 10-Aug-05 15:53:05

double, triple and quadruple grrr

smoke coming out of ears!

stacijc Wed 10-Aug-05 16:10:26

handlemecarefully Wed 10-Aug-05 16:21:53

pmsl

i know but bigger than i was and history of eating probs so hard going at times

eidsvold Thu 11-Aug-05 22:59:37

in total with no2 I put on 10kg. Baby weighed 4.28 kg.

eidsvold Thu 11-Aug-05 23:01:10

I think everyone is different - I put on hardly any weight with dd1 and she was tiny.... 2.74 kg. Now like Olive I am smaller than I was before I had the two babes.... but still have a lot of weight to lose.
