Anyone notice this event?  I noticed that my boyfriend has gained weight in the last few months, to the point that he is complaining his pants are getting too tight.  LOL  I have gained a total of 8 lbs (22w2d) and I am pretty sure he has matched my number.  It doesn't bother me, I still think he is a cutie!

Also might be partially to blame....we moved in together and now I am cooking dinner every night.    I think there were nights (before living together)  he didn't really eat meals....just came home ate a snack and fell asleep in front of the TV.  

I haven't said anything to him up until now.  He has always had an extremely high metabolism...so I think it might hurt his feelings if I bring it up.

i'm guessing it's the home-cooked meals way more than the pregnancy.  put food (especially good food!) in front of these starving boys and they'll put weight on pretty quickly if their activity level doesn't change.

you're at the point where you'll start to gain weight more quickly now.  i was putting it on pretty slowly in the beginning.  now i'm 30 weeks and have gained 18lbs!  yikes!  you'll outpace him soon... hopefully!! :)

LOL  Pls don't say that!!!!  I am a chubby girl before getting pregnant...I am hoping that by the time I give birth I will only gain about 20 lbs.  (btw...My sister laughed out loud at that)

I went last night and bought some maternity clothes.  I was relieved to find that I was in the same size (same number anyway) as before I was pregnant.  I feel SO MUCH better wearing maternity pants.
