I had my appointment this past week. I'm at 11 lbs of weight gain. I expect much more. I'm already swelling and retaining water..

I think I'm at between 11-15 at this point. It's really strange for me as I only gained 24 total with DD and didn't start gaining anything until around 14ish weeks thanks to ms with her. I don't worry about diet so much as it's just more of a reminder that these LOs will be here in no time!

I WIN!! LOL I have you all beat... I've gained over 20 lbs. I stopped keeping track because it was just too depressing. I go to the doc on Wednesday and I REALLY hope she doesn't say anything about it. I had a very restrictive diet before I was pregnant and I was very lean, but now I've switched to the seafood diet; rather, the SEE FOOD diet because if I see it, I eat it! LOL So I'm gaining weight all over but I'm trying not to be too hard on myself about it. I do much better restricting myself to purely healthy, all-natural, low sugar foods when I'm not pregnant so I'll get back to that in a few months or so. Smile

Noooo...truly I win.......... Lots of reasons why ( including quitting smoking the week I foundout I was pregnant, no thyroid, feeling so sick first trimester when my thyroid was out of whack and the only thing that would help for 5 minutes was to eat, and this baby loves sweets). About 35-40.

I will try my hardest not to get depressed about this and do what I have to do after this baby comes to see us.

I don't know how much I've gained...at least 6 pounds, but I know it's more. I go back to the dr. on Thurs, so I will find out then, but I am afraid I've gained 10 lbs in the past month. :/ My legs are puffy, though, so some of it is water weight...

oh Robin, don't be depressed. Quitting smoking has got to be so hard! Everyone that I know that quit smoking has put on some weight initially so don't be so hard on yourself. You have accomplished a very great thing!!! Besides, I'm closer to the end of that 20+ lbs that I put and I didn't quit smoking, nor did I have any thyroid issues! ((BIG HUG)) hang in there!

Lisa and NYM, single digits still? Seriously? I wish I was more like that while pregnant!! I'd rather have the doctor talk to me about not gaining enough than gaining too much!! Smile

Thanks Jamie! I am keeping it all in perspective and am not being too hard on myself and things have slowed down thank goodness. It is hard to admit the number, hugs to you too!. Thankfully with a little guidance from above I was able to quit cold turkey. Some point it will hit me and I just need to keep a positive attitude try to keep things in check now and lose the weight after the baby is born.

So far I've gained almost 30lbs.

25 pounds of that was in the first trimester when I was still able to work. Odd since I can't seem to eat anything at all. I seriously only eat about 1000 calories a day on a GOOD day. And a lot of that gets thrown right up too. I have NO IDEA how I'm gaining so much! It doesn't seem to make sense. (Don't worry the baby is really healthy and actually measuring a bit ahead of dates; I take a number of vitamins and supplements also... and most of the time I keep them down.)

Most days I eat an apple for breakfast and then I try to eat something for dinner. Usually I just look at it and can't seem to get it down. Sad I used to love food; now it's a chore and I can't even force myself to eat it because as soon as I do I have to go limping to the bathroom. (I have terrible SPD so I can't move very well.)

I lost 11lbs in the first trimester and I've almost gained all of that back now, so technically I still weigh the same as I did when I got my BFP Biggrin but if I hadn't lost the 11lbs in the first place I'd probably be at an 11lb gain.
