I'm 36 weeks and have put on around 17kgs. I started around 65kgs, I'm now around 82kgs. I haven't really been eating any more or differently than normal, I think it's just what my body does. DD as of last week is roughly 5 pound 10.

This time im nearly 34 weeks and have put on about 6.5kg but it seems to be all that my body needs. Keep eating well and keep up the fluids.

With DD I put on 9kg. Lost 5kg straight after birth (bub was 3.5kg)
with this pregnancy I have put on 7kg so far (36 weeks)
i wouldn't worry too much, you may find the weight comes off really easily. Mine did last time

I had dd at 38 weeks and I had put on 20kg. She was only 2.9kg but it turned out I had a lot of fluid! I had dropped the 20kg by 3 days after her birth which really surprised me! Try not to stress - you don't know how much of your weight gain is fluid :-)

I gained 18kg by 39w (starting weight of 56kg). 13 of that was in the last 10w :-O A LOT was fluid and a 3.8kg baby. My feet were triple the size and had dents when I poked them and had very high BP. I ate really well and exercised, so like pp said I think your body is in control.

With my first I gained 20kg but lost 12kg immediately after the birth and then the last 8kg was gone after about 6 weeks.

I put on 21kgs with my DS, he was my first pregnancy. I went from 58.5kgs to just under 80kgs. I ate ok and continued to exercise right through my pregnancy so was freaking out. DS weighted 3.9kgs.
I think I lost around 7kgs the first week.
Now, 6 months later I am just over 57kgs so it has all gone
I think a lot of the weight was fluid.

It's so weird having no control over how much I gain. Thank you all x hopefully I'll lose it quickly.

I've put on 26 kilos so far and as you can see from my signature, I have 6 weeks to go.
Every body and every pregnancy is different.
I put on 25 which each of the boys but had GD both times.
This time, more weight (having a girl) but no GD which is shocking.
Hoping it's all fluid
