Mine has, too! He and I are both up around fifteen pounds. I say 'around' because I honestly haven't weighed myself in a few weeks since we've been out of town camping, canoeing, and hiking in the mountains. My work pants are about to go into retirement. Suddenly I have a butt AND a belly when I normally don't have either and I sincerely need to go up a size. I have a feeling a lot of growth is in store in the next few weeks... Seventeen weeks today and I'm finally starting to really 'show'.
Weight gain - Page 3
I gained 65 lbs. with my first. I wasn't concerned about it, since I felt that I did it safely for the most part (considering I craved grilled cheese sandwiches, root beer floats, and had frozen yogurt regularly in my third trimester haha). I had an 8 lbs. 15 oz baby and was 10 lbs under my start weight at his first birthday.
This time around, I felt like I needed to switch to maternity clothes sooner on, which made me nervous, but apparently I've only gained about 3 lbs as of 17w. I feel pretty icky all of the time - not actually nauseous, but ill - and nothing is appetizing. I literally do not want to eat, ever. At my last appointment, my healthcare provider suggested milkshakes, Snickers bars and peanut M&Ms... O.o
I'm not concerned overall. I'm a big believer that your body provides for your LO (while pregnant and while BFing). I'm working really hard to eat as well as I can, but I refuse to stress over it.
