Interesting! We aren’t  TTC yet, but that’s some good info to have. (I’m scared of the dreaded saggy tummy too.)

@ms.melli:  That is amazing! Thanks for sharing. 

I’m only a few weeks along, so no weight gain yet – but I was actually always kind of wondering where all that weight goes.

Try not to stress too much about the weight gain or the pouch afterwards, it’s all part of the amazing process of “producing” a healthy little baby! Allow yourself time to go back to your normal self after the birth, don’t expect miracles right after delivery.  I was reading somewhere that it roughly takes your body as long to “recover” from the pregnancy and go back to normal as it did adjusting to the pregnancy itself – in other words 9 months.

@ms.melli:  Whoa!  Thanks for sharing!  (the extra 4 pounds of blood totally grosses me out…)  I’m 18w4d and gained about 10 pounds so far.  Even those 10 pounds makes me feel gross. Lol
