Gahhh, the newsletter I got from American Pregnancy Association said by 14 weeks, the average weight gain should be 5 lbs, so I felt okay because that's exactly what I have gained so far. But this chart shows me right at the highest part of the high range for 14 weeks. Soooo confusing!

brie lol yes, gaining 'only' 60 this time around should make me extatic, shouldn't it haha :smileyvery-happy: Technically I won't be able to bitch about it, since it will be an improvement from the first one. Somehow though it still terrifies me.

chellygotabelly come on, it's not your fault that I turn into a fat blob with no self control when I'm pregnant haha.

And no, the weight DIDN"T come of when the baby came out - it did 2 years later :smileywink:

Aw, don't let it get you depressed. I'm sorry, I didn't want to post this to upset anyone. Just worry about taking good care of yourself, the weight will come off when the baby comes out.

Please. You're a little peanut. You wear a size 0, right? I sure don't think you should maybe gain that much, just for health issues and all that, but this is the only time you legit can put on some extra pounds. Shoot for only 60 this time, maybe. ;) You're older and wiser this time, which I think makes a big difference. First ones are always more about learning how it goes.

Cheer up, buttercup. You'll be ok. :)

This depresses me even further... I am aware I should gain 25-35, I was also aware of that with my first pregnancy. I ended up gaining 70 lbs. Ugh. It seemed like there was nothing I could do to stop it - I kept gaining until the last day. Disgusting.

Yeah, white potatoes are surprisingly healthy. When they aren't turned into french fries anyways, lol.

Wow -- 15lbs just seems soooo low. I suppose it could be done, but not sure I'd want to try.

Mine says 25-35. I hope I can keep it in that range. But I'm sitting here right now eating a raw potato (I'm making potroast and the potatoes were calling to me, LOL). One of my calorie counters says it's worth almost 300 calories! I had no idea. But, apparently it's got 7g of protein, too, a ton of vitamin C, some iron and dietary fiber. So, I can think of worse ways to blow 300 calories, but honestly, I'll have to go easy on potatoes with dinner tonight. :)

It said I should gain between 25-35lbs, and I gained 25 last time. And I actually weighed myself this morning and I'm one pound under my pre-pregnancy weight, which really doesn't surprised me.
