how much weight have you gained?

post #1 of 29

How much have you gained so far?

I've had terrible m/s so far and still managed to gain weight. It seems like eating is the only thing that satisfies me. I have already gained 5 lbs since finding out I am pregnant. I was a little underweight so I'm not worried yet, but I can't keep going at this pace.

I haven't gained anything this time around, but when I was pregnant back in August, I gained almost 10 lbs by 10 weeks. I had the same situation as you; unless I was stuffing myself, I felt horribly sick. After my miscarriage, I only lost about half of what I had gained. So I'm still technically about 5 lbs heavier than I was "pre-pregnancy", it's just not from this pregnancy...

I am 8w and have gained 3lbs. Like you, if I don't eat constantly, I'm violently sick. This is what always happens w/me and the weight gain slows down a lot for me in the 2nd tri, so it balances out. I have gained between 30-33lbs with my other pregnancies, and I'm guessing that's what'll happen this time, too.

Nada- I'm at 10 weeks and I've lost almost 10 pounds so far due to crazy bad m/s. I'm sort of worried that when I do start to gain, I'm going to put in on really fast. But whatever it takes to be healthy.....

I didn't weigh myself for the first time until about 7 weeks, but I think I had gained a pound or two by then - since then have lost 2. So pretty sure I'm breaking out even so far...soon to change, since the m/s is getting much better and food is my friend again.

i've gained too, about 5 also. i am 10 weeks today. i'm hungry all the time it seems. and it REALLY is hunger, usually if i try and wait it out it only gets worse, so i don't think it's stress eating. i have been craving fats though which could be a comfort thing. i try and follow a TCM diet; low in fat & dairy, low in wheat products, low in sugar. i think i need a little more fat now...i think.....portion wise i am eating more too.... i crave things like egg salad, chicken salad, cheese, yogurt, wheat bread......but i agree if this goes on i'll be huge and very unhappy. i try to curb my appetite but i go back and forth with whether i should......i'm not eating junk food or anything. not sure what to do. i was at a healthy weight prior and happy with it, so this is a plus. i think since this winter has been so cold i haven't gotten outside much for walks and such and this could be a factor. what's a girl to do? in my second tri i am going to start yoga. hopefully it all balances itself out. :

I've lost a couple pounds due to not eating much. I'm also nursing, though. Last time, didn't gain or lose anything in the first tri.

I'm down about 14 now! I'm having sporatic days when I feel like maybe, just MAYBE the ms is letting up a bit and I feel like a eat a relatively normal amount, so maybe soon I'll be on the upswing..... Seems like I was able to keep steady, pretty much, maybe down 4 or 5 lbs, until the last 3 weeks - I guess baby is using more calories bc now I'm really starting to lose - and trying very hard to eat enough not to, but it's DIFFICULT.

I am 9w2d today and lost about 4 pounds. But the notion of food gradually becomes appealing again........ I've gained 22-25 pounds in my previous pregnancies, both times only in the 2nd and 3rd trimester. They say every pregnancy is different, but I cannot really attest to that.

Enough that some of my pants are starting to get a little snug in the rear and my bras are a little tight.

Depends on the time of day...in the mornings I'm about the same weight, in the evenings I'm awfully bloated and am up a few pounds. I've had nausea and aversions, but no actual vomiting (so far) so that's helping. With my previous pregnancies I lost weight and wasn't in the positive until well into my second tri.

I started this pregnancy at a nice healthy weight and in very good physical shape (just ran in a marathon in September!), and although I haven't been able to workout the last couple weeks, I'm anxious for the nausea and exhaustion to pass so I can get in the gym again. My workout buddies miss me!

Good to hear I'm not alone. I'm not eating that unhealthy either. I do crave the weirdest things. Today I've wanted cheese. I had an egg sandwich w/cheese and tomatoes for breakfast (totally unusual choice for me) and a huge plate of mac n cheese for dinner just now (not just mac n cheese btw).

Down about 5 pounds... though maybe only 4 after the piece of cheesecake I just put away rather easily...

I'm sure I've put on a few since my "chubby day" pants are getting tight on my booty and hips. It's not from eating, but more from just lying down for weeks.

I've gained between 5-8 pounds, but it fluctuates so I think it's all water.

I am exactly the same.

First thing in the mornings, I weigh pretty much the same as before, but last thing at night, I'm up around 1.5 kilos (around 3lbs I think)

With my last pregnancy, I gained a lot FAST in the first tri- but the nausea this time has kept my eating at bay. Maybe I'm just also a little more educated about what to eat

Oh yes I am around 11 weeks.
