I'll be 15 weeks tomorrow and I've gained 11 pounds so far- and just about all of it in my belly. I gained 9 pounds in the first 11 weeks and just 2 pounds in the last 4 weeks. As a woman, it is always a little hard to see the numbers go up (especially to see such a jump early in my pregnancy- I can easily get into a panic mode of "oh no, if I gain all this weight now, when I'm "barely pregnant," what am I going to do when the baby is the size of a melon and truly growing?!?!"). However, there is no such thing as being barely pregnant- the baby is going through massive growth spurts on its own schedule, and no two pregnancies will have the same pattern of weight gain and growth. My midwives have really been stressing and encouraging this healthy weight gain. My diet is really good, and though I wasn't underweight before, I was slender, and my body needs this. It is a little scary at times though, but I trust that my body is gaining weight exactly as it should, and my baby is growing exactly as it should!
