    Question 2nd pregnancy weight gain?

    I am just trying for baby #2 and am wondering did most moms gain more weight with 2nd pregnancy compared to first. I am trying to be at a healthy weight before conception!

    Any advice!? thanks!

    No.
    I was 110 when #1 was conceived - 141 when he was born @ 41+1
    130 when #2 was conceived - 160 when he was born @ 40+5
    140 when #3 was conceived - 161 when she was born @ 39

    With my first I gained 45lbs but I was underweight. With ds 2 I was still carrying around an extra 10lbs and still managed to gain 55lbs even with horrible morning sickness and running around after a toddler. 6+ postpartum and I'm +15lbs to where I was originally.

    Nope, I actually gained about 5 lbs less with DD2. I'm normally a bit underweight when I conceive and end up gaining about 30-35 lbs. Might be more this time! I'm carrying and gaining weight differently this time so I have no idea if I'll weigh more yet or not.

    I gained 25lbs with my first and 27lbs with my 2nd. I craved different things though with each pregnancy and ate a lot of veggies and fruit and yogurt my first pregnancy and more sweets my 2nd pregnancy.

    I didn't gain weight with either pregnancy but I had some extra to begin with so the midwife said that was fine. I lost a few pounds with my second because I had bad morning sickness from start to end.
