I'm of average height/weight and didn't gain with my first two until I was almost in the middle of the second trimester - even though I clearly looked pregnant.  This time I've gained a few pounds already (I'm 12w5d) because my milk dried and that natural weightloss (nursing) stopped.  *IMO*, it's normal to not gain until you're further along, but every person is different in this regard.

Great idea for a thread!

 

I'm just starting 15 weeks.  We had our first midwife appt at 12 weeks and heard the heartbeat.  So awesome!!!  :D  Our next appt is next week.  I'll need to talk to our midwife about gestational diabetes, as I just found out my mother has type 2. (I didnt know this at our first appt, I dont have contact with my mother)  I admit, I am concerned, as I did start this pregnancy carrying an extra 15 lbs more than I've ever been.  

 

 

Hdang - I haven't gained any weight either.  I actually lost 5lbs in that first month (lots of vomitting and nausea).  I think b/c that once my appetite came back I've been making much healthier choices in what I eat so even though I've lost, baby is still growing.  :)  

 

I'm still amazed at how far along I already am!  :)

thanks so much, that is so helpful. I was getting worried that I wasn't eating enough, but couldn't believe that was possible, since I am constantly eating!

I started out at 130 and have yet to gain more than a couple of pounds at 15 weeks... yet with a definite belly ;) I think I may have just lost weight elsewhere perhaps. I added a few more yoga classes since finding out I was pregnant and am overall eating better. First baby too... I am trying to reassure myself that it's normal (and baby is only supposed to weigh a few ounces right now anyways!)

I'm 16w2d, had an appointment today, Dr. is guessing boy smile.gif  I hadn't gained at all at my last appt and am now up 4lbs, at least half of which is in my boobs which finally got the memo I was pregnant again wink1.gif

 

My anatomy scan and my next appointment are both on the same day in 4 weeks, so I will get a for-sure sex that day, but from the pictures I think he is probably right and it's another boy!

Gah!  I seriously can't believe we're getting close to the half-way mark already!  That freaks me out!

Saw my MW yesterday. Heard the heartbeat. I managed to loose 6 pounds from the previous appointment (guess a diet of smoothies and bland foods isn't as high in calories as I imagined). I'm looking forward to having my appetite back. My blood pressure is good. DH and I hemmed and hawed over the cystic fibrosis and neural tube defect tests, without making a decision. Cervix length looks good. Seems so far so good.

Had my check up today with the doctor.  Discussed some of the blood work I had done and that I am a carried for Cystic Fibrosis ( I had found this out about five months ago when the infertility docs were doing tests on me, so no real surprise there!)  Then my doctor informs me that he wants my husband and I to go and see a perinatal specialist about two hours away to discuss the possibility of CF.   Sort of annoyed me that he was already pushing for the appointment with the other doctor when my husband has yet to be tested to determine if HE is a carrier as well...

 

So- tomorrow it is my husband's job to call his primary and get them to do a blood test.  It's all sort of annoying.  Can't figure out why my OBGYN cannot give him the blood tests themselves...would make everything so much easier!

 

Until then, we are going to hold off on making the appointment with the specialist.  I have decided if my husband tests negative, we will not go.  I just do not see the point.  Fingers cross that he isn't a carrier!

Hey there! I too am a carrier for CF, my husband is not. I had no idea until I got pregnant with our first baby. When we found out, my husband had his blood checked at his doctors office and my OB also suggested we see a specialist -- we ended up going but it was unnecessary. All of our children have a 50-50 chance of being carriers. My fingers are crossed for you too!

Had an appointment yesterday with a CNM who is not my usual midwife, I didn't like her at all.  I asked to have some blood redrawn and she refused, was very dismissive. At least we heart the heartbeat, beautiful at 140 bpm.  Oh well! I scheduled my ultrasound a month from now. Can't wait to find out if it's a boy or a girl!

Had my 17 week appt today. I've gained 16lbs already. lurk.gifHoly Moly! Most of it was from the first trimester when all I could eat was pepperoni and cheese on crackers for 3 weeks straight. Whoops! No matter how much I gain, I'm skinny again by 4-5 mos postpartum, thank goodness. I'm measuring 18 weeks. My midwife gave us a piece of paper that shows the actual size of the baby and we were all so shocked at how big he is already. I was still thinking "peach" sized still! No wonder I feel huge!
