i'm 38 weeks 4 days tomorrow and at my last appt they said i had gained a total of 11 lbs. i have a feeling that when i have my little baby girl that i'm going to be that much closer to being at my goal weight. :D :D :D i'm at 151 right now i think... my goal weight after baby is 120. :)

Not too shabby is right! At my 28w appointment on Friday, I've put on a total of 21lbs. My doc was concerned with the past 2 appt's w/g, so she said I needed to keep it at 1lb/week. This month, I only put on a lb...not sure what the diffrerence was, but I'll take it! :)

At 34 weeks, I had gained 12lbs. Now, at 35 weeks, I've LOST 6 of those lbs, and so my total weight gain is 6lbs. Baby is weighing 7lbs (per u/s) so hopefully I'll walk out lighter than when we conceived! (and hopefully be able to keep it off!)

At 29 weeks I was at 213, as of yesterday at 31 weeks 3 days I'm back down to 207 for a total weight gain of 8lbs, I only hope this means I'll be smaller after baby comes, I have a growth scan next week to make sure she's growing fine but as of now the Dr isn't worried. I lost almost 50lbs before becoming pregnant it would be great to be able to just jump back in to my weight loss after baby :)

Im 28 weeks today and I have gained 7 pounds so far! I am not overweight but would like to be a little smaller. It would be awesome to actually be smaller post baby. :)
