Has anyone else gained a lot of weight already? - Page 2

post #21 of 26
Thread Starter 
I had my first prenatal appointment yesterday and the doctor said not to worry about the weight I've gained so far since I started out on the lower end of "normal" BMI. She just said to continue to exercise and eat healthy foods and keep an eye on it over the next 4 weeks until my next appointment.

We tried to listen for a heartbeat but couldn't find it yet but I'm scheduled for an ultrasound soon so that's pretty exciting.

in my first 2 pregnancies I gained a total of 20 pounds. The second two pregnancies I gained a total of 30 pounds. (One of them I lost 8 pounds before I gained anything)

This time I'm just over 6 weeks and have already gained 5 pounds. My 12yo swears it's twins, dd4 says we're having 2 babies, my friend "cursed" me, and twins seem to be rampant around here. Small town type area and I have 3 friends who have twins.

How long until I get to have an ultrasound to confirm the number of babies I'm carrying?

Is it twins or am I just going to gain a lot of weight this time?

I was just about to start this very thread. I've gained 10 pounds already and I'm only 8 weeks! It's hard because I constantly have to eat so that I'm not nauseated. I haven't been exercising like I should because I've felt like crap and have been so tired. I'm pretty optimistic that my weight loss will even out as the weeks go by. Here's to hoping anyway!

It looks like I've gained around 4 lbs at 7 weeks. This is after coming off of a long weight loss so a large part is probably my body adjusting.

I'm having a hard time with the no sweets though and this morning I had a second breakfast of scrambled egg, biscuit & gravy, and sausage. I'm with the others in that the only thing to really help my nausea is eating.

With my first pregnancy I gained 12 lbs in the first trimester. I started out very fit but then puffed out right away. I was still eating well but I think the big dip in my activity level is what contributed the most.

This time I'm already up 4 lbs at 8 weeks. I'm not going to sweat it though, it will all come off after the baby is born (I hope).

I have been eating healthier than I did before I was pregnant (I haven't had any nausea yet) so I'm not sure why but I used to drink a lot of coffee so perhaps I ate less even if it wasn't as healthy.

I'm 35 and this is my first pregnancy so I'm not sure what to expect but 10 lbs at 7.5 weeks seems excessive!
Im somewhere around the 9-10 week area and im not too sure how much wieght ive agained but i do know that i didnt start showing til about 5 months with my last 2 and this time i dont know what happen im huge!!! like you i am 5'1'' but i weighted like 135 before i got pregnant and i havent weighted myself in like 3 weeks but i really dont want to either....
