I work for a well-known weight loss company and today had my monthly weigh-in. I've gained 3 lbs in the last month!! Eek! I wasn't surprised at all though-- I've had constant cravings for greasy/carby/cheesy things and have not resisted anything! Normally, I like that type of stuff just fine, but I don't crave it or regularly seek it out. Not this past month!! It's like I get the idea of having pizza in my head and it becomes All. I. Can. Think. About until I have it. Also, I've had such crazy morning sickness that I literally have to eat every hour to keep from feeling really sick. Still.... makes me feel a bit shameful that I'm only 7 weeks into this and I've already gained 3 lbs. Oh Lordy!
Anyone else gaining weight this early??
I'm about 9 weeks along and I've already gained 5 pounds. It's ridiculous I know, but I've had the most insatiable appetite! I can't even help myself!
I've gained roughly 3-4lbs already as well and I'm only 7 weeks. I CAN NOT stop eating! It is crazy the amount of food I NEED. I don't have much m/s this time and am still nursing a ton so I'm sure that contributes to it. Still a little unnerving though.

I will say that it makes me feel better to know I'm not the only one gaining weight already!! I'm sure things will slow down as I work out the kinks of this yucky first trimester and hopefully start eating like a normal person again. Hopefully!!!
I'm actually going to try to lose weight this pregnancy. I'm overweight to begin with and I will be walking more and eating way healthier than when I wasn't preggo. With DS I only gained 15 lbs and this time and hoping to gain 0 or be in the negatives! lol I guess I have to step on a scale first to see what my starting point is, huh?
