Did I gain too much weight too soon during my pregnancy?
I started at 145 pounds before my pregnancy and now I'm at the beginning of 5 months and I weighed in at 154 pounds (which I did eat and drink prior to doctor visit when I got weighed) I'm assuming I weigh 152 or around there.

I gained 45 pound total my pregnancy. I was very petite before getting pregnant. I am back to pre-pregnancy weight. And, my son was only 7lbs 4oz. I think you are doing fine with weight gain.

You have asked this enough. Get over yourself

Sounds okay thus far. Women normally start really packing on the pounds around the last two months.

That's only 9 pounds, you will gain way more than that the last 3 months.

Your weight gain is fine. You aren't gaining anywhere near too much.

That's a question to discuss with your ob/gyn. How much weight is healthy for a woman gain depends on whether the women is under, healthy, or overweight to begin with, as well as the woman's height.
It is considered "normal" or "healthy to gain between 2 and four pounds in the first 3 months and then about a pound per week during the second trimester. That would suggest that a weight gain of 6-8 pounds through month 4 is fine. Since you are already into your 5th month, a gain of 9-10 pounds seems absolutely fine.

Huh? You know you are going to be pooping out a baby that may be 8 or more pounds, right.
On average a woman should gain 2.5# during the first trimester and 1.5# per week for the remainder of the pregnancy. This would mean that 10# gain at this point in your pregnancy would be normal. It seems like you are right about there...
And stop with the "but I did eat and drink"... yes, we all change sizes throughout the day... don't worry about this amount.

What did your doctor say about your weight?
You know. The trained professional?
