    Default Am I the only one? Spin off

    Just a spin off another post.

    I gained 33kg with my first and 30kg with my second. I have successfully lost all the gained weight both times without much effort.
    This time round I think I will gain the same amount. I am 7 weeks and already 5kg heavier.

    Anyone else gained that much during pregnancy?

    Well I gained 25kg (starting weight of 50kg) so put on 50% of my body weight. I had that constant nausea that meant I had to eat all the time. Lost it over 9m by walking.
    No stretch marks or loose skin.

    I gained 27 kgs with my first but only lost 10 before I got pregnant again 18 months later. I gained 8 kgs with ds2 but didn't get a chance to lose any more than 3 kgs because I got pregnant again when he was only 3 months old. I'm 25 weeks and haven't gained anything yet thankfully since I'm overweight anyway! I should add that my morning sickness was the worst this time around so I believe that definitely has something to do with the lack of gain.

    Yes I am constantly feeling sick as well and feel the need to much in something. Also the funny taste in my mouth doesn't help.

    I put on almost 30 kilos first pregnancy, only about 10 of that was baby related. I'm 27 + 3 and have already put on 14 kilos this time, so I'm going to be far more strict with what I eat from now on as I was still almost 10 kilos of my pre-kids weight before falling preggers again. I breastfed for 17 months and barely lost any in that time, hoping it won't be quite so bad this time around!

    Not the only one OP, I put on about 25kg while pregnant, and was back to pre preg weight after 3 months, with little to no effort whatsoever. Apart from bigger BF boobs & a couple of little stretch marks on my thighs, it's like I was never even pregnant. I expect it might be different after a second one though!

    I put on 20kgs for both my pregnancies. About 10kgs of that was baby. Without trying/noticing, I started dropping it straight away. (I was breast feeding) I am smaller (everywhere) than I was pre preg. But with a lot sagger boobs.
    I ate normal through pregnancy, No cravings. Nothing. I was really Active 2nd time with a toddler. So I guess no real excess to loose made it easier.
    Healthy pregnancies and babies. All I really wanted.

    a friend if mine is 19 weeks and says she hasn't gained 1kg...I'd be worried lol but I didn't say anything we are all different.

    I've put on about 2kg and i'm 22w - first bub. I really shouldn't be putting on much though given i started so overweight to begin with.
