Weight gain so far? - Page 3
Well, my weight gain seems to be under control - somewhere between 8 and 12 pounds. None in the last three weeks, only 2 in the two weeks before that. So I'm going to blame the scary initial weight gain on a combination of quitting smoking, and fatigue + increased appetite + no morning sickness.
I'm a weirdo. I'm 16 weeks, and I've only gained 1 lb. The funny thing is my waist is growing regardless. I can't button my pants anymore. I got a couple belly bands to deal with that. I'm really envious of those of you who are gaining weight. I've always been small (5'2" and 101 lbs.), and gaining weight is really difficult for me. It's made morning sickness scarier because I can't afford to lose weight.
In the past month I have gained exactly nothing which I am not too worried about at the moment. I have no idea what I weighed before the pregnancy since I don't keep a scale and have no need to care about it otherwise but at the midwives, they want me to weigh myself each time so that's how I know this. I'm 14 weeks as of yesterday.
thank you dakipode! that was really reassuring; i was getting a bit nervous.
13+4 today and still the same weight, although i seem to be finally growing a little bit of a belly. it's a sometimes-belly. weird how that doesn't translate to weight gain. also weird considering the amounts of ice cream and cake i've been eating lately. but! i'm just not gonna worry about it till week 20, i guess. or at least not until my midwife expresses some interest in my weight.
lol..i am thinking the exact same thing!
the last time i weighed myself (around 11 weeks) i was 122 (i am usually 114 ish i think: we don't have a scale in the house).
i also gained 50 pounds with my son 11 years ago & feel i am well on my way again...
