Hi ladies. I wonder if I might butt in?
im not currently pregnant, but I just thought my weight gain with my DS might be worth a thought?
I put on 23.5kg at term, DS was 3.4, and within 2 weeks of his birth I only had 10kg left to lose (ie I lost 13.5kg in 2 weeks). Fluid retention was shocking (but pretty much went within a few days of DSs birth)), and breast feeding helped too.
i guess my point is, not all weight is really weight - it could be fluid...
