whos expecting her to be 8 pounds??



i gained 65-70 pounds, and my kids were 4 pounds and 5 pounds... i was almost 9 pounds at birth, that has nothing to do with how big the baby will be...
i walked into the induction weighing 190 had the baby and was 170. same day... that wasnt considered *FAT*

I Agree with what your saying! Obviously everybody is different and have limitations but any kind of activity and small healthy changes help. your lucky for the awesome pregnancy. I have Pubic Symphasis and it hurts certain movements I do. I go to chiropractor and Physical therapist for that and just change the movements to ones that I can handle but oh what it would feel like to feel great all the time :)

During U/S, the tech usually gives you and estimated weight. Ours and all the other parents' we know do anyway. And some people say "If Mom and Dad were big, their baby will be big." ya know, the typical baby myth fun. lol Anyway, my point was she's looked healthy through out the pregnancy. I don't know what's considered fat about going from 190 to 170 either...?

Yes, they give you an estimate, but they are known for being inaccurate...in fact, I've seen more that were way off than close. With my oldest, they were telling me she was going to be at least 9 pounds, but she was actually 5, almost 6 pounds.

I thought my daughter was going to be like 8-9lbs by the way my weight gain was going. She was 6lbs 11ozs.



I was 180lbs pre-pregnancy, lost 10lbs to 170lbs, and got up to 210 when I gave birth. I gained ALL baby.
I just worked until the last day (my water broke at 230am) at 39 weeks 5 days.



This was 39weeks-ish599496_4707673171936_221259604_n.jpg

That's awesome that you worked up until the last day! I got a job after I got pregnant and I'm so glad I did. It's kept me feeling energized and motivated, ya know? (P.S. That pic. for sure looks like all baby. 200 lbs, really? Where is it?? lol!)

ultrasounds can be off by alot,



I've had 3 babies, 1 had an ultrasound twice a month because he was being monitored and they gave an estimate of his weight just for *fun* not for me to manage my whole pregnancy around,
I've been told to gain 20-25 lbs through out pregnancy...



With all my deliveries, i dropped 15 pounds of water, placenta, and the baby was between 4 and 5 lbs... that's 20ish lbs right there...



I gained more obviously, but if i was worried about a 14 lb weight gain like op, and already at the end of the pregnancy, i would rather be encouraged to enjoy the rest of the pregnancy, and its ok that she gained that weight, then to be told she should have started at the beginning, and whatever other jiber jabber u said...:roll:

Okay one, my point was in all of her U/S my baby looks healthy. Her 20 week exam, great, so if something is abnormal at birth (God forbid) it will be a surprise. The OP asked for tips so I told her it's not too late and in any future pregnancies she may want to start in the beginning. She ASKED for tips, not for people to tell her to gain on and it's all good! Like I said, I told her it's not too late to start walking and it could also help her to enjoy her pregnancy even more. Man, maybe working out also kept my crazy pregnant lady hormones in check. You should try it because something's sure got your panties in a bunch. (jibber jabber? Seriously, why so angry?)

I dont think she was meaning it offensively. She said starting in the beginning would have been best but then proceeded to give her some advice for her situation now. I do agree with the ultrasound weight thing. It has always been off when I or anybody I know or see on here has one estimating the weight.

If you're eating right I wouldn't worry about the weight gain.



Do 30 minute walks, stretch, pregnancy yoga, etc. Stay active and if you gain, then you gain.

14 lbs lol thats nothing. Ive gained 25 lbs and im not done yet. Mi matter what u do you start gaining 1/2 to 1lb a week. Youll have time to lose it all n diet after u have the baby.
