I know I shouldn't, but I'm starting to worry over my weight gain. I'm only 7 weeks, but I've already gained 3 lbs. If this had been my first pregnancy I don't think I'd be quite as worried over it. But this is so different from last time. Last time I lost weight in the first trimester (very mild m/s), and didn't gain a pound until week 15. Also, last time I started out at a good weight for me. This time I'm starting out 5 lbs heavier. I'm not overweight, but I'm starting out on the upper end of my healthy weight range, and I'm gaining so much quicker than last time - doing pretty much nothing different from last time, so far as I can tell.
Yes, it's too early to be concerned, but I just wonder why it's so different from last time. So what do you think? Is it normal for second pregnancies to have completely different weight gain patterns? Also, if I gain a bunch of weight in the first tri, will I gain less than last time in the second and third? Maybe?
It's very disheartening to be seeing numbers I didn't see until over halfway through my last pregnancy so early this time.
