How's your weight gain?

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 
I am now 13+2 weeks, and I have only gained maybe 2-3 pounds. If I were large, that wouldn't worry me, but I'm very thin to begin with. My pre-pregnancy weight was 133lbs. at 5'8". I'm still nursing my son (25 months), but only twice a day, and I'm almost completely dried up anyway.

Thing is, I'm eating from sun-up till sun-down, and not exactly fat-free. I also checked my fundal height yesterday and it's 11cm which is okay for 13 weeks.

Any thoughts? I'm going to see my MW on Monday, but I'd like some input anyway.

I haven't gained any weight since being pregnant but that's fine with me cause I started out kind of more than I wanted (I'm 5'9" and 158 pounds). My normal weight is about 148 but right before getting pregnant I'd just gotten back from a vacation (in Germany actually where you live!) and hadn't had time to lose all the 10 pounds I'd gained the 3 weeks time I was there. Sooo I'm not too concerned about not having gained any weight yet because I'm only 10 weeks.

I will be 11 weeks tomorrow and Ive actually lost about 8 lbs.. Im not worried though because I didnt gain much with my daughter (and I think this is a girl) and because Im still nursing 24/7.. I am going to try to start increasing my intake of healthy foods to see if I can gain a little. With dd, I lost weight the entire 1st trimester, and half of the 2nd trimester.. and then ended up with 9 lb gained the entire pregnancy

I am 5'5", 116, and 12.5 weeks and have not gained anything, which is weird because my clothes are starting to feel snug and I definitely have a belly. My MW told me this was all completely normal. I looked at my journal from when I was pg with DD and I didn't show a gain until week 14 and that was just 2 lbs, so I am not worried. It will come!

yes my belly's definitely changed as well. I guess all my weight is just redistributing itself?

here's my belly weeks 6-10

maybe it's cause you've already had kids before? I heard your uterus has a "memory" and you look pregnant a lot quicker with consecutive ones!

aww your belly is so cute its starting to grow.

Yeah, thats what I figured is because this is the 4th child lol.. but man I cant wear my clothes anymore.. and I just HATE maternity pants lmao.. so Ive been wearing my regular clothes unbuttoned with a maternity shirt on top.. I did buy a Bella Band but didnt like it.. It made my feel really HOT and it was kinda tight and itchy because of the heat (I live in FL)

My weight fluctuates. I had gained 2 lbs. at my 10 1/2 week MW appointment. Then a week later I weighed at the gym and I was my pre-pregnancy weight. I was weightlifting 4 days a week before becoming pregnant and I'm still doing some, but not as much and lighter weights. So even if I weigh the same, things are changing...because I've probably lost muscle and turned it into either fat or baby or boobs I'm 12 1/2 weeks now and haven't weighed recently, but I feel like I've gained 1 or 2 lbs at most. We'll see what happens after today's barbeque!!!

exactly. I'm not nearly as physically active as before either so I'm sure I've lost some muscle

I know what you mean about always thinking about food. :-p I feel like a bloodhound because i can smell it whenever someone has food out at work.

I am 10 weeks and a few days, and so far I haven't gained anything. At this point with my son I'd already gained 5 lbs, but I have more extra weight hanging around this time. I'm really suprised that I haven't gained though, with my enormous appetite and my pants being tight around the waist. I don't remember being this hungry this early with ds either. I am hungry when I wake up to pee at night! It is ridiculous.

11 weeks and 5 days here and so far have only gained 1 pound I am 5 8'' and was 155 when I found out I was pregnant now 156 ...I usually gain about 35 -40 pounds with my pregnancies....

I'm 14wks tomorrow and so far have lost 10lbs (on my scale). I'm not worried though because I did have it to loose. I am 5'6" and was 155 when I got pregnant. I was trying to shed some pounds before I knew I was prego and lost about 3 lbs and then I had no appetite and was really queezy all the time. Yesterday was my low of 145lbs. However, my appetite is back and I'm just trying to eat healthfully and avoid refined sugars for the most part. Also, I am not hungry after dinner which is new for me and I think that makes a huge difference in weight gain (although I'm sure around week 20 I'll be up for a bowl of cereal at midnight! ).

I gained 55lbs with dd and was over 200lbs at delivery and it was really a lot of weight for me to carry (um, she was 7lbs ). I would love to deliver around 170lbs this time, but the next 26 weeks will decide that!

Now, off to have dinner!

My boys and I just moved and I dont have a scale , but I dont feel like I have gained any weight.
I have my first mw appt tomarrow so we shall see.
I usually loose 10-15lbs the first trimester and then gain it back plus 10 or so lbs. I still feel really icky.

Hey Sara,

I wouldn't worry at all about it. I checked my records from pregnancy #1 the other day, and I didn't gain a thing until I was over 14 weeks pregnant. I ended up with about a 35 pound weight gain total.

It seems like in the early months the babies are really working on getting all of the systems in place, and then later on they really start to pack on the weight. I think we're starting to reach that point soon (you and I have about the same DD, if I'm looking at things correctly).

I FEEL like I've gained a ton of weight already, but I checked the other day and I've gained one pound at most.

Try not to worry----I'm sure your body is doing everything just right!
