I didn’t gain much between weeks 16-22 but then gained 4 lbs in 2 weeks (now 24 weeks)! It makes sense I guess to gain more at the end of the second tri I guess…you are feeling good, hungry, and baby is really starting to gain weight.
When did you gain the bulk of your weight? When was your biggest jump?

My biggest weight gain point with both pregnancies was between 25 and 35 weeks, which kinda makes sense, considering babies go through some huge growth spurts during those weeks!

With my first I didn’t gain any weight until around 20 weeks… but then I think I gained 10lbs in 2-3 weeks. It was a little abrupt! After that I was back to 1lb/wk or so. Total I gained about 30.
I really feel like as long as you are eating reasonably and getting some exercise (even walking!) your body will gain the right amount of weight it needs to to support your pregnancy and you shouldn’t worry too much.
I’ve gained a little bit faster with this pregnancy – but I was also smaller to start with – so I kinda feel like my body wanted to get to it’s ‘happy weight’ and then things have leveled off. I’m 16 weeks and have gained about 10lbs.

I’m 28 weeks and so far my highest gain was between 18-22 weeks when I gained 9lbs! I blamed the holiday season 🙂
So far I’ve gained a totaly of 27lbs but I’m not worried about it. 😀 I am surprised I’m not in more pain from that amount of weight gain on my small frame though!
