Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.
 

I am 25 weeks now and have lost 7 pounds in total. Does this mean I will gain a ton in the coming weeks?

I am on the heavier side but have not gained any weight. Lost weight actually. Our little girl is bigger than she should be for how far along I am. I am never hungry. Will I start stuffing my face once I hit the Third Trimester? I want to make sure she is going to grow right. Could it be the super hot weather we are having this year in IL?

:) I think you are OK.. If your doctor isn't worried, you shouldn't be. I lost a lot of weight the first half of my pregnancy because of being sick.  I was also overweight, so not real worried about it.  I think I have only gained about 20 to 25 pounds or so tops.  I have been gaining about a pound a week or so for the past couple months.  Talk to your doctor, but if they aren't worried, you shouldn't be.
Another good key to not gaining a ton of weight after morning sickness hits and you do regain your desire to eat is eat healthy. Remember that whatever your putting in your mouth thats the type of nutrition your baby is getting too. Not to mention sweets and salty foods aren't good for any upset stomach you may have anyways. Try lots of fruits and veggies to snack on because later on digestion problems will arise and those will help. But don't be concerned if your doctor isn't.
Haven't had any sickness or food aversions at all. Husband thinks belly seems to be getting bigger so we shall see.
You'll just have to wait and see. If you're overweight you don't need to gain much weight, so just watch what you eat. Make sure it's healthy. Listen to your body, eat when you're hungry but don't go crazy.
