Here is an approximate breakdown of your weight gain:
Baby: 7-8 pounds
Placenta: 1-2 pounds
Amniotic fluid: 2 pounds
Uterus: 2 pounds
Maternal breast tissue: 2 pounds
Maternal blood : 4 pounds
Fluids in maternal tissue: 4 pounds
I was at the doctors earlier and I have only gained 12 lbs from pre pregnancy and I am almost 37 weeks. So I wanted to see where all the weight went and this is what I found hope you all find this interesting.
I gained 40lbs when I was pregnant, I was horrified. I had excess amniotic fluid though, and I was super super swollen but other than that it was just because of my hormonal eating and lack of exercise lol.
I gained 70 lbs with each pregnancy... 2 of my babies were 6lbs and under... it went to my ass and thighs... regular measurments my ass is 38inches at 9 months preg it was 45inches I think its 5lbs for every inch?? *not sure* sooo that was 35lbs just in my ass lol
I know when I delivered I instantly dropped 20lbs... that was always nice, till I seen the other 50lbs just *around* lol
