What have YOU gained?

Alright ladies, be perfectly honest...

How much weight have you gained so far?

I'm still down 15 lbs from my pre pregnancy weight. I know there's a baby pushing stuff around in there, but ...it's funny to me that I'm DOWN 15 lbs and can't fit in ANY of my pants LOL.

And no, it's not from exercising or doing anything healthy AT ALL. I just throw up everything I eat. :rolleyes:

Still nothing! I was kind of excited yesterday when it looked like I gained 2lbs. Well today I went right back down. I've lost about 6 lbs. during this pregnancy. Midwife told me to gain 3 before next week's visit. Pshaw, that's not happening. OH...and I hate to type it because I'm sure I'm jinxing it. But I haven't thrown up in a long time. I didn't throw up last week at all. I don't think. Jessica I can't believe you still have M/S. That is just terrible. I feel awful for you.

LOL. Well I say you deserve some kind of award.

I'm still gagging when brushing my teeth. But I somehow manage to keep it down. Has it let up for you at all? Or is it still fairly consistent?

Elizabeth - it's definitely let up a bit. I'm not popping Zofran as soon as I roll out of bed. BUT this past weekend, I threw up the ENTIRE weekend. I dunno, it's weird. Sometimes I am fine all day, sometimes I'm sick all day. But I say it's letting up because I'm not sick EVERY day.

I am behind on my weight gain. I'm guessing because I've been sick. We'll see how I come up at the doc's appt on Friday, but I don't think I've gained more than 2-3 lbs over all so far, maybe 5 at the most.

I'm still down here too. At my appt on Monday he said something about "You lost another 2 lbs" all accusingly, but I don't think that's right; I think I'm holding steady at right around 9-10 lbs down which is where I was at 13 weeks and 17 weeks. I don't know what my deal is...I feel like I eat all of the time, and I have been trying to walk, but only 30ish minutes a day, so I don't think that's it. We'll see what he has to say at my 21 week appt, if there is something else I need to be doing.

Jessica - I agree that it is weird to be down from your regular weight and still be too big for your normal clothes. LOL That's definitely where I am.

Yes! I'm officially in maternity pants! But they are all baggy in the butt. I swear my butt and has completely disappeared. My thighs are noticeably thinner too! But my belly is still growing!

I thought about this last night ... why I'm not gaining much weight. I've not had too much trouble with morning sickness with this one, but I don't think I ever feel hungry. I've pretty much figured out when and how much to eat so I don't feel sick and I stick to that. I never, ever, ever feel hungry, I just eat because if I don't, I'll start feeling crappy or I already feel crappy and I know I need to eat. Is anyone else like that?

Joan, I am that way. I have to at times force myself to eat even when im not hungry. I never really ate much to begin with before baby. If I eat too early in the morning I feel sick to my stomach since im not used to eating breakfast.

Elizabeth I get like that too with my saggy pants. I definitely don't gain any weight anywhere in my body except my stomach when I'm pregnant.
Last week at my appt I was the same weight but I just weighed myself tonight and I'm up about 4 lbs so probably 2-3 lbs since it fluctuates so much.
