During my first prenatal appt. The Dr. Said that I should gain about 25 to 35 lbs. I just turned 27 weeks yesterday and my last appt. Was on the 24th of last month and I had already gained 27 lbs. I guess my question is...Have many of you that have had children gained more then what was recommended and still lost it all?

A friend of mine gained 60 pounds during her pregnancy and managed to lose it all within like 4 - 5 months.

As long as your eating healthy and you feel good dont worry about anything else. You can work it off after the baby is here. I am 34 weeks and I have gained 28 lbs already, but have been diagnosed with toxemia, so I carry a lot of extra water, so anything is possible, but keep your head up girl. Saying that you should only gain 25-35 isnt right because everybody;s bodies are different. Im sure you look great. Good luck with your pregnancy :)
