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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
Laura Beck, mother to Our most cherished Love - Our son- 8/1/11- 8/4/11
severe swelling and increased blood pressure started between 20-22 weeks. (ignored by medical professionals)
was finally clinically diagnosed with severe pre-e at 27 weeks.
spent 2 weeks in hospital.
He was born at 29 weeks, at exactly 2lbs. classical incision c-section.
He lived for 3 days in the NICU , autopsy said "lung failure" was cause of death.
