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.

ask the doc i cant give you the exact weight nor can anyone els but i weighed 105 pounds when i got preggo and weighed 118 at 28 weeks but because every women and pregnancy is different you could way more or less then me
that varies with every woman. none of us can tell you what an appropriate weight gain should be for you. we don't know your medical history. that's something that you need to discuss with your doctor. i gained 60 lbs when i was pregnant with my daughter, but it all just fell off after i had her. immediately after giving birth, my stomach went back to normal-flat as a board.
I gained 50 with my first but all with in the last 2 1/2 months.  This one I am only 26 weeks and I have already gained 15.  I wouldn't worry about it too much.  Your Dr. should tell you if he is concerned.  Plus there is nothing you can do about it anyways so enjoy the second scoop until you give birth!
