Anyone still losing/not gaining any weight yet?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I'm 11 weeks pregnant w/ twins and I'm still below my prepregnancy weight. I'm not throwing up anymore, but I am nauseated all.the.time.

I make myself eat every couple of hours, but I cannot eat any meat or large amounts of food because it makes me feel bad for hours afterwards.

I have no appetite.

With my first child, I only gained 7 lbs due to similar issues(nausea never went away), but this time I am determined to eat better and gain more weight!!!

me! im about 13 weeks and still havent gained. im still 4 pounds below my pre-pregnancy weight. with my first, i gained the weight quickly in the beginning and then it slowed down. but i had cravings with that pregnancy. i feel like i have aversions to everything with this one. and when i do eat, it either comes back up half the time or doesnt digest. but with all this said, i feel like im already showing!!

I have not - I am 12 weeks, and lost 2 pounds since I was at the ob at 8 weeks. They are a little concerned because I really don't have any to spare. My weight now is considered underweight for my height, without being pregnant.

I can keep food down, but I have no interest in eating that much. I also cut out all of my old drinks and now drink only water, which I am sure contributed. I eat little amounts all day, I can't eat a lot at a time.

Last time I was pregnant I felt better when I ate, so I had gained 10 pounds by now. The midwife suggested papaya extract to help this time.

Otherwise the baby is growing in measuring big, so everything is okay there.

Yep. I'm fourteen weeks tomorrow and am still below my pre-pregnancy weight. I have hyperthyroidism, so gaining weight is an issue to begin with. I was lower than I like to be when I got pregnant and I've had several health issues since which - in addition to morning sickness - caused me to lose even more weight.

I gained four pounds, but have since lost all of them - plus another. The last time I was weighed (umm . . . a week ago?) I was at 92 pounds. Boo!

I flew into my hometown yesterday and so far I've seen my Mom, my Dad, one of my brothers, and a few others - the first thing they all want to do is touch my belly. There's nothing there, people! Move along.

I'm 10 weeks and I haven't gained any either, in fact have lost about 6 or 7 lbs from pre-PG weight. I was still losing weight from PG #1 though so I'm kind of glad I haven't started gaining this earlier. With DD I gained 50 lbs, ugh, that's a lot when youstarted off 5' 4" and 120 lbs. Its been a struggle to get it off and I was down almost 30 lbs when I found out I was PG again.

I've been eating but trying to not eat soooo much crappy food even though I crave it a lot. I also haven't been able to eat a lot because I get full so fast and then feel horrible for hours on end.

I'm 10 weeks and down 2 lbs. Of course, I have a lot of "extra." Plus, I'm barely eating.

im in the same boat.. only i have one bean in there i havnt gained any weight yet either. With my second son I didnt gain my first official pound until after 15wks and even then I packed on the most during the final trimester. Im with you in feeling yucky all the time. I have some "Extra" weight I could afford to lose but since Im pregnant Ill let it stick around. I did lose a couple pounds during the first 8wks but now im steady. I wouldnt be to concerned unless your purposely not eating to avoid gaining weight.

I get stomach aches because I need to eat and them i feel like im gonna yack after I eat for several hours.. soo annoying!

I'm 12 weeks now and have lost 10 pounds total. I haven't gained any back. I probably won't until I'm closer to 20 weeks which is what happened with DS. I didn't have any to spare, but I'm not too concerned. DS was super healthy so I know it'll turn out ok with this one too.

I've lost about 24 pounds so far (coming up on 11 weeks) due to the misery of my relentless nausea and a panopoly of food aversions and zero appetite. Doctor is not worried because I'm carrying lots of extra weight to begin with. I feel it's the silver lining in the dark cloud of being almost constantly sea sick. But it's weird... the last thing I expected pregnancy to be is a weight-loss aid!

Well, as of two weeks ago, at 11w3d, I hadn't gained anything. I'm tiny to begin with, and I was nauseated for weeks. BUT... I NEVER gained during my first trimester with my other two pregnancies, and I gained 30lb total with each one. I checked today... I gained 3 or 4lb. So I've officially started. It's just how I am. With my other two, around 5 months, I gain 8-10lb in a month's time. Then I'm pretty average. My midwife wasn't worried, and wasn't last time, and my OB wasn't worried first time around.

I'm 13 weeks tomorrow and I haven't gained anything yet. In fact, I think I've lost a couple of pounds due to the lack of beer drinking :P

I also don't have much of an appetite lately, I think due to the combination of the hot weather and the general lack of room in my stomach. I'm not showing yet, but everything feels a little more squished in my abdominal area. After like, ten bites of food I feel stuffed.

I'm 11 weeks today and 10 pounds below my pre-pregnancy weight. I lost 15 pounds between weeks 4 and 8 or so because I had a very serious colitis flare. I had to go on prednisone to control it - something I've never had to do before. I've been on the prednisone for almost a month now and I'm finally getting my appetite back, I'm not sure if it's a side effect of the prednisone or just because I'm pregnant! In the past week or so I've actually put on almost 5 pounds (which is good because I was only 7 or 8 pounds away from being underweight according to BMI).

And the nausea seems to be finally letting up. I didn't have any vomiting, just nausea and serious food aversions. Now I just want to eat everything!

I am 10-11 weeks pregnant and have definitely lost a few pounds due to my annoying morning sickness. And now that insurance has refused to pay for more Zofran until July 21st, we will see what I can stomach!

Calm stomach vibes to anyone with morning sickness. It sucks big time.

I'm at 14.5 weeks, and haven't gained anything either- haven't lost anything, just maintained my weight exactly. Strangely enough, I also didn't have any morning sickness- haven't thrown up once. I figure I must've just had a few pounds to spare, and I'll start gaining pretty soon. The belly is definitely growing, though!

We didn't own a scale prior to me getting knocked up, so I don't really know what my pre-pregnancy weight was. But since we bought the scale two weeks ago, I have been holding steady at the same weight - some days a 1/2 pound above, somedays a 1/2 pound below. I think that might be a pound or two up from pre-pregnancy, just because a lot of my clothes are getting snugger, but not much more than that (my clothes still fit), and that's just a guess.

I lost about 8 pounds from my pre pregnancy weight when I was throwing up nonstop, over the course of 2 to 3 weeks. Gained it all back in the last week now that I'm eating and keeping it. I'm probably at pre pg weight now, at 10 weeks. And I have a very obvious belly bulge.

I was actually REALLY excited at my appointment Tuesday because I found out I've only lost 3 lbs. With DS I didn't start gaining until 20 weeks. I lost at least 15 lbs with him but I had hyperemesis. This time I've only thrown up once so far (KNOCK ON WOOD) and that was Tuesday night. I've been flat-on-the-couch nauseous many days though. I've been on Zofran since 2 days after I found out-last time they wouldn't let me have it until after my first IV, my second came when I was already on it. If I make it through this week and next I *should* start to feel a bit better since 11 and 12 were my worst with DS.

It's good to know I'm not alone. I'm finally starting to eat more so hopefully they scale will go up soon.

I will be 13 weeks on Friday and have been staying right at my pre-pregnancy weight. I am heavier to begin with, so I am not concerned and neither is my dr. I only gained 12 pounds while pregnant with DS and delivered a wonderfully, healthy 8 pound baby.
