Weight

Am I the only one gaining weight already? I don't know if I'm just swelling or what but I've gained 5 lbs. in the last 2 weeks (but I look like I've gained 20 lbs.!)! I'm afraid I'm already off to a bad start. I gained 60 lbs. with DD and 40 lbs. with DS. Problem now is that I'm only 20 lbs. away from my delivery weights with both. I cannot afford to gain much this time around. I don't feel like I'm eating terrible either. *sigh*

Maybe just bloat or water weight? I know in my other pregnancies mine would fluctuate so much. I would go several weeks and gain nothing, then gain 5 pounds one week, then several more weeks of nothing, etc.

It is hard not to stress over the weight but try to make sure you focus on eating good healthy foods in the right portions. As long as you are eating well your body is going to do what it needs to so that you can have a healthy pregnancy.

Now that I said that I too am freaking out because I have gained over 15 pounds already!!! With my last two pregnancies I only gained 20 pounds each time. So you aren't alone!

I agree with everyone else. Just focus on eating right and getting some exercise and everything will be fine. I usually do great the first 20 weeks and gain like crazy the last 20. We'll see if I can improve by taking my own advice!

Thanks for the feedback. The funny thing is that I'm craving fruits and veggies like crazy, and I'm eating them, too. It has to be water weight because I can't imagine anything I've eaten to cause me to gain already. Maybe drinking more water would help flush some of the water weight out? Drinking more water can only be a good thing in our case, right? I hope. Smile
