Any plus size mamas gaining weight?

I see so many posts on plus size mamas losing weight while pregnant. I’m feeling so defeated because I’m eating relatively healthy, going to the gym 3-4 times a week for an hour and drinking tons of water but still see the scale climbing.

Pre pregnancy I was 244lbs and 5’11”. I’m 22 weeks pregnant today and just weighed in at 267! Already up 23 pounds and just over halfway through.

I’ve never gained weight so quickly in my life.

This is my second pregnancy. My first didn’t make it past 23 weeks pregnant, and with her I gained a total of about 30 pounds in those short weeks - I lost her in September last year and had no time to lose all the weight before getting pregnant again.

Needless to say, I feel huge. In the past 15 months I’ve gone from 214 to 267 from pregnancies.

My blood pressure is good, no gestational diabetes as of yet, overall I’m totally healthy. But this gain is bumming me out hardcore!
