After the fact, i learned that I gained only 10lbs in actually pregnancy weight...
but overall I gained 65 lbs in water weight due to the pre-e.
Once the swelling started i jumped up about 10lbs pretty quickly and then it was about 10lbs a week adding on until I gave birth at 29 weeks.

1st pregnancy I gained 1 pound at 29 weeks. Thanks to my hyperemesis finally going away. My next appt at 33+1 I had gained a total of 8 pounds. But you could see the swelling and all the other signs of pe. Went to l&d and pumped me full of fluids and told me to keep drinking, mean while my kidneys shut down. At 33+4 I had gained a total of 42 pounds. I was gaining 10+ pounds a day. After I had her I sweated out a bunch until my kidneys came back. I lost most of the weight in the first week or so. My 2nd I was at my prepregancy weight at 23 weeks thanks again to my hyperemesis. This one I kinda skipped pe and went straight into eclampsia. Don't know my weight but hardly swelled. This pregnancy so far I have gained 2 pounds by 22 weeks, 7 total by 24weeks, and 13 total by 26 weeks. I am not eating tons if food, don't feel swollen. So I am confused on how I am gaining so much in the last month. Maybe just catching up from not gaining the first 20 weeks again thanks to hyperemesis.

At 27+2 I had gained 29 pounds. I continued to get sick(er) for the next 3 days before I had my son. I didn't think I had swollen that much, but my husband thought I had some. However, AFTER delivery, I really balooned with the swelling, especially in my feet. It was painful. I don't remember what my weight was at that point, or even if they weighed me. I don't think I was stable enough to stand for a few days, so they may not have. I just remember that when I was discharged, I had lost 20 pounds from my admitting weight. So there may have been more weight that I had gained and lost while I was really sick.

I had gained a lot of weight during my pregnancy. I only made it to 21 weeks but I was 40lbs heavier!

I started out, gaining 6-8lbs one month, then nothing the next. I was working out lightly the first 4 months until the edema set in and it hurt my feet to even walk. I was an avid spinner and worked out 3/4 times a week right before I became pregnant, had so for 2years. I started out at 150lbs in Oct, by March went to 200lbs. So in March I gained about 20lbs in one month, but doc did not like that but told me to restrict my cals. I told him, I don't think you understand, I eat greek yogurt, banana, and cereal bar for breakfast, cheese sandwich and fruit for lunch, a snack after teaching and maybe a veggie burger for dinner with frozen fries. Im not eating bad. I don't touch fast food. Well it could be the water weight, he thought, but still limit your cals. I instead limited my salt, no salt bread, no salt butter, shopped at Trader Joes the whole time, looked at labels, got lowest salt cheese/cereal/everything. Restricted my salt to about 500mg-1000mg a day, very low for anyone. I finally lost 3lbs in April. Kept it off until my miscarriage at 32 weeks this May. Love you baby Soleil, I can't stop thinking of you!

I was 93lbs when i got pregnant and I just got my records back and I almost DOUBLED my weight at the end of my pregnancy. Granted, I was severely underweight, but I don't know how they did now see that as a red flag.

I weigh around 102lbs now which is much better.

That's crazy you were only weighed twice. I got weighed every visit and then at the hospital they weighed me every day to see how much fluid I was retaining. My medical records look ridiculous from the two weeks I was in the hospital.

No one weighed me during my first pregnancy. Go figure THAT one.

I got weighed twice. 12 weeks pg and 6 weeks pp. Second weight was 11 kg down on the first. I totally swelled up right at the end and eventually peed it right out, but I couldn't guess how much. You can see my puffy face in pictures, though, and they were pumping tons of fluids into me and I wasn't peeing anything out for a while. I didn't know you could swell after birth, and I left my rings on. Nearly had to have them cut off.

I didn't gain anything till 13 weeks this time, then I gained 10 from 13-20. That's not PE, that's eating yourself out of house and home. 24 week appointment is next week, and I'm not looking forward to the scale. At least my OB Is not one of the "obese women should gain nothing" promoters.

20 pounds! Up until I got sick, I had only gained 5 or 6 pounds the entire pregnancy. I started my pregnancy fluffy. I was pre-fluffed prior to getting knocked up. But I kept my weight in check. Then when I got sick there was no controlling it. :(
