I gained 25 pounds total with my daughter and gained it very slowly for the most part.

That's a bummer. I am with pp, your overall weight gain has been controlled and I have heard that many women will go through a growth spurt and gain a bunch in 1 month and then level out, your dr should have looked over those

I had months were I gained a lot. I don't remember off the top of my head the amounts. But I just delivered a baby last week...I gained 40 pounds the entire pregnancy.

On my 1st & 2nd child I did the normal 25 pound weight gain (but I started showing and wearing maternity clothes in my 2nd month). I was extremely skinny to begin with and only weighed 95 pounds. With my 3rd child, I started around 135 pounds, so I was still fairly thin, but I gained 68 pounds with him.

I didn't have any complications during any of my pregnancies (like swelling, diabetic, etc). I just gained a lot. I didn't really eat differently either.

My daughter is 6 months pregnant and started out at 104 pounds and is just now showing at 6 months...she has already gained 26 pounds.

I don't know what it is with some of these doctors and weight gain! I have a very tall skinny friend who has just been severely ticked off by her doctor about a big gain in month 7 of her pregnancy. The poor thing had gained little weight until then and is definately going to have a long baby, so I ask myself when she was going to be allowed to gain the weight! My doctor just notes my weight gain and appears to leave interpreting it to me.

From what I have read, the size of the baby is nearly exclusively determined by the mother's genes. What happens later is another matter... In my first pregnancy I put little weight on until my fifth month, then it shot up (and I began to look pregnant at 6 months) and continued to increase until the end of the 8th month, then plateaued until the end (I put on
