Really?!!

I'm only 5 weeks and my scale says I have already gained 5 pounds! I havn't even been eating crazy (i promise) is this happening to anyone else? I'm really hoping it is bloat. I don't remember with DS as I wasn't keeping track of anything but I do know in the first trimester I gained 10 pounds. I'm trying to be a lot healthier this time so it doesn't make sense to me.

I would guess it is bloating. I am also trying not to gain a lot this time around.

I am eating non stop and lost 7 pounds. And I never lose weight, it's nearly impossible for me to lose even a pound. So this is reeeaaalllllly weird.

I haven't weighted myself in a few days, but was down about 2 lbs before that.

I'd be very happy to continue to lose through the first trimester, but I doubt it with the holidays here.

I wouldn't worry, I'm sure its just bloat. I felt really, really bloated a few weeks back to the point where I thought I might be having twins becaus there was no way I was showing at barely 6 weeks. Now it has gone down a bit.

I have not weighed in at all. With my other 3 I was either nauseous or vomiting. This time I'm eating a lot, I still feel within my normal range so I'm not worried...for now.

So far so good here too. I'm down 2 pounds. I usually lose 5lbs in the first tri. By 20 weeks I get back to my starting weight and then go up from there!

Oh my goodness, by the end of the day today my work trousers were so tight they were uncomfortable. I haven't been eating much more than normal (even though I went out to eat with coworkers tonight), but it feels like things are expanding... such a weird feeling or maybe it's all in my head?

I am to scared to get on the scale lol. I found yesterday that I am pregnant and now I feel bloat too. My last pregnancy, I was in maternity pants at 6 weeks with bloat, just to be comfortable.
