I'm 20 weeks, and at my last checkup (just over 18 weeks), I'd gained 1 pound. However, I'm morbidly obese to start with, and have never
gained more than 5 pounds in my first trimester. Since I put off getting a doctor for quite a while, their numbers aren't completely accurate. I think
I'm actually down about 4 pounds from pre-pregnancy weight.
I also quit eating sunflower seeds. Up until just a few months ago, I went through probably about 2-3 pounds of roasted, salted sunflower seeds per week
. I kept them at the PC and snacked on them while I posted. While they're not completely worthless in a nutritional sense, they're not great enough to justify that kind of intake...lots and lots of calories - and the mess was appalling.
I did have a point there.
I can now eat a lot more food during meals and snacks, without actually increasing my caloric intake by very much, yk? So, my situation is a bit weird.
