Weight gain at 22 weeks Chels's Mama 1 child; Surprise, Arizona 400 posts

I was just curious as to how much weight is normal to gain by 22 weeks pregnant...I was 131 prepregnancy and at my appt on tuesday I found out I had gained 18 pounds...and the midwife told me to slow down. Lol so I pretty much feel like a fatty now because of how she acted even though the only place Ive noticed get bigger on my body is my tummy. Ppsshh they were urging me to gain more in the beginning so it feels like its impossible to please them...

that's on the high end, but everyone is different. It's not outside of normal.



Is it because you have gained 18 lbs or because you gained like 10 of that in the last four weeks?

ive only gained 25lbs so far. for the past 3 apts i havent gained any weight either. its like i gained it and stopped gaining weight. even though i eat a ton all the time. im a cow seriously i graze all day so im suprised i havent gained more. there are some people that gain a bunch of weight. as long as your healthy you should be ok.

By 22 weeks, I had not gained any weight. But I had bad morning sickness and had to be medicated. They don't want you to gain more than 35lbs during your pregnancy, I'd say you're doing fine right, you're 1/2 way through.

it depends on your body. my doctor told me its possible for you to gain a pound and week and that should be the max. so 22 weeks and 18lbs isnt bad. i'm 5'and wasnt a very small girl 2 start and im 27 weeks and have only gained 13 pounds. and my doctor gives me a ton of shit for not gaining enough. :roll:

I'm a bigger girl but I haven't gained anything yet...I'm at 18w exactly, and I had lost 6, and gained 3 of that back...In your avi it looks like it's all tummy so I would ignore her giving you crap.

I didn't gain anything by 22 weeks. I started gaining weight around 30 ish weeks. I'm at like 6 lbs.. lol
Just remember, the more you gain while you're pregnant is more you have to lose afterwards.

its sorta because of both i think. Idk maybe my metabolism is slower now because It seems like Im eating the same as when I wasnt pregnant but maybe thats just me...but yeah Ive gained 6 since they last saw me which was 5 weeks ago.

oh man sorry to hear that =( i never threw up or anything weirdly I just had nausea for about 3 weeks in the beginning but i had a really big appetite nevertheless so in my first trimester i gained 5 pounds. But yeah after that my hunger went back to normal and I usually eat healthy anyways so Im not even sure where its all gone to lol. But yeah she said at this rate im probably going to gain about 36 which is okay with me...but not her I guess idk

yeah true. I plan on breastfeeding and i heard it helps with the weight loss a little...hmm...its funny like for some reason its hard to think of my belly to be smaller right now because shes moving in there so much it seems taking up all the space as it is haha. Well hopefully i stop gaining so fast if its going to be hard to lose and if its not necessary for the baby.

Quoting A SURPRISE in May!:? I'd say make sure you are eating well and healthy and not worry about it I'm down 15 lbs. Like I said, ... [snip!] ... over my pp weight, and my second at 3 lbs below my pp weight and they were both around 7 lbs 20 inches, very average children.?

oh yeah, at the ultrasound my baby looked perfect she was measuring a couple days ahead and very healthy thankfully. But ok so dang i seem to be abnormal lol is it a genetic thing at all? My mom gained a lot with me like 11 pounds in her 4th month and 13 in her 5th month and the midwife was kinda a loudmouth about it so she switched to an ob. Who actually permanently injured me. Thats besides the point tho ahhhh im tired. Well ok good to know... =)

I am 21 weeks and have gained the same as you! i was 120 at my first app and at my 20 week app i was 138...lol he didnt say anything to me tho. He said since i was a little under weight to begin with i should be fine. he said 35-40 pds is a good weight gain..so i wouldnt worry about it! you look great! and yes with breast feeding the weight will fall off of you!! so i wouldnt worry at all!!
