Weight gain

I know you all are barely gaining weight and stuff, but OmG! I have gained sooooo much I could freak out. This is the first pregnancy I have cared about my weight, and I wish I did not....I think I am at 10-12 lbs at this point.

I'm down 14 lbs and the doctor wasn't exactly reassuring about it this last visit. I'm sure it'll shoot up soon but it just seems weird with a growing belly.

When I went in on the 22nd I'm up a total of 5 1/2, so I'm up there with you (def not losing like most of the gals). I'm hoping to keep it to around 30 total!

triplespiral: wow, 14 pounds? have you been pretty sick? that seems like alot especially since you aren't big to begin with.

i lost 7 initially, but ive gained back 3, so im down 4 overall.

i did the same thing last pregnancy. i gained 30 pounds, but none of it before 22 weeks. I will catch up soon Smile

I lost in the beginning with the first 2. Didn't gain until after 20 weeks. With the first I gained 25, second 45!!! This time I'm up 2-3 lbs...I'm so scared I'm going to have a repeat of the last time:(

Joy have you stopped running and such? As much as you were running I am sure it's a shock to your system to just stop. So I am sure you will gain weight a bit faster and it will probably slack off here soon as your metabolism adjusts. Smile

Hello Joy, I am here to make you feel better Smile

I am in my 13th week & I have gained 10!!! I know, WTH?!?!?

I am hoping a lot of it is backup (ugh) & water retention/sodium. I started at 126, I have continued running about 2 miles most days. I also try to go to the gym at least once a week & still no love. Sad

I just lost 65lbs & I'm scared I'm going back there. I gained 60 w/ both my other 2. OH NO!

I'm hoping that if I can just go 1 pound a week for the rest of the time I will just be at about 40... I'd be fine w/ that, but I just don't think that's possible. I'm thinking about starting a food diary.

At least I know how to lose the weight again after weaning.

I am down 9 at this point. My midwife is fine with it because I have plenty to spare for baby. I always lose weight in the beginning because I am way more careful with my food while pregnant. Plus, its summer and we are in the pool daily so I am burning extra calories.

I haven't gained any yet. I lost about 12 pounds right before I got pregnant by cutting grains and sugar out of my diet. I have been eating the same (with an occasional cheat) since I got my BFP and I am holding steady around 140. Now that I am feeling better, I am planning to try to get some exercise. I'm thinking about starting some water fitness classes with plenty of walking and stretching exercises.

I was up 1 lb at my last appointment. My next appt is tomorrow but the scale at home says I have stayed about the same. Like Carolyn I didn't really start gaining until the second half of my 2nd tri and I gained 27ish lbs total with Nicholas.

I gained 50 lbs ON TOP OF 15 lbs of fertility meds weight with ds. So I'm so scared I will gain 65 lbs again after I just lost it.

Right now I am about 5-6 lbs up which I'm fine with. If I can stick to a lb or less a week from here on out I think I'll be ok.

This time I'm only up 2-3 lbs. But in previous pgs I was in double digits by this point.

I am up 4-5 lbs depending on the day. Last pregnancy I gained 24, so that is my aim for the entire time. I do need to start eating better, i have fallen off the wagon recently on that.

I'm soo scared to gain alot of weight. I'm not scared to gain baby weight, but the excess is what I struggle with. I gained 65lbs with DS!! and I am so terrified of being that huge again... I'm already not a skinny girl, I really don't want to be feeling "fat" again. :/
