You read my mind! I was thinking about this last night, and going to post and ask.
I started out the pregnancy around 117, but with a healthy couple inches of fat ontop of my belly.
I was super sick from weeks 6-12, so I didn't eat as much as I thought I normally would have, but what I did eat was mostly carb filled and and calorie laden (think french fries, potato chips, toast, etc).
Since feeling better I've returned to my normal eating habits, and just eating basically whatever I wanted. Today for instance I had a few ginger cookies, cranberry juice, 3/4 of a bagel with peanut butter, several handfuls of fresh fruit (kiwi, pineapple, raspberries, strawberries), and a few pieces of smoked salmon. Then I drank a bottle of water, and shortly after headed for lunch (oh yes, this was before lunch) where I had fried rice, peas, one dainty sandwich, and some weird wild rice and chicken 'balls' things. Since getting home I've had a "mini nestle crunch pop" (ice cream), and a turkey, lettuce and cheese sandwich.
Now... I've eaten some more exciting things today than I normally do, but it's typical for me to snack all day long, and grab whatever I feel like eating.
And I'm 15 weeks, and I've only gained... maybe 4lbs. I'm so confused. My belly looks huge-- so much bigger than 4lbs.
What is going on with my body!?
