My scale is broken....

..... cause there is no way I could have gained 3 lbs in a week! Ugh! Body, we had a talk. No giant gains until I say so. Wink Anyone else gaining weight early? I'm trying to hault this trend with good old fashioned exercise. Biggrin Fatigue is not kind!

I know what you mean! I have been weighing myself for a good week or so to get a "baseline" for the pregnancy. I only gained 26 lbs with DD and didn't gain weight for a while at first. It freaked me out but my MW was like "you don't need to gain weight this early it's fine. You're eating healthy good for you!". I usually fluctuate between 5 and 6 lbs and lately I've been at 7-8 lbs Sad I have been monstrously hungry despite how early it is so I'm trying to just pound back water first and eat as healthy as I can when I do eat.

I've been trying to exercise too as it's good to do and it usually gives me energy. Lately it just makes me more tired though.

I could only hope my scale will break. I am not going to look, the first few weeks were awful between doc visits, I was up! ...between the constipation, me cold turkey quitting smoking and me feeling like I need to eat all the time to help ease the nausea. I really hope I feel better 2nd Tri. The only thing good about not feeling well is I don't miss the smoking at all right now.

This for me too! I do not own one anymore. Sometimes I think they are out to get me.

I've actually lost weight.

I did the same thing with DS#5, I lost about 7 lbs in the beginning and then never gained anything except those 7 lbs. I was so excited. I never lost the 30 lbs I gained with DS#4. I am hoping this is a trend I get to continue this time around. I lost 1 lb since Saturday so FX.

I also run about 3 days a week. It's been a bit harder this last week but I just found out my entry was selected to run in the Nike Women's (Half) Marathon in October. So, I've got some training to do. Yep, I'll be completing my 5th half when I'm about 7 months pregnant! EEK!
