HONESTLY, how much weight have you gained?

post #1 of 73
Thread Starter 
Yeah, you have to fess up here. This is one of those, I feel fat days and I need someone to commisserate. Tell me how far along you are too.

My name is Carolyn. I am eating way too much. I am 10.5 weeks and have gained 6 lbs.

Well, I bet I'll make you feel much better I've gained 20-25 lbs. I gained 20 lbs in my first tri with my last pregnancy too (and only 2 lbs the last month - I'm hoping my body does the same thing). I eat fairly well and exercise regularly. I think my body just needs to put on the extra weight - or at least that's how I justify it to myself

At 10w I had gained 1 lb and at 11.5w I had gained 4lb, but at the 11.5w appointment it was in the afternoon and I hadn't had a bowel movement so I am not putting any credence into it. I like to weigh in the morning after I have gone to the bathroom.

I'll be 14 weeks tomorrow...and today I weighed myself I've lost weight. But, that is because we were ALL sick sick sick last night. We were up from 3am to 2:30pm...we are still exhausted. :

14w here, and at the last MD visit, was at -3 pounds. I'm sure I'm starting to go back the other way, since I'm getting the "no waist look"

But good for you for not gaining a lot.

I gained 43 lbs with my son.

I am sorry for the mamas who have lost weight. Secretly I am jealous but I know that must be stressful as well.

I'll be 13 weeks tomorrow and I have gained about 3 lbs. But I don't normally go by weight, I think composition is more important. I also think I have lost muscle so I have probably gained more than the 3 lbs the scale shows - I feel like I've gained about 8. I went to the mall today and basically just felt fat and bloated

I think I've lost 4 pounds, but the scale at the gym and the midwife's scale are completely different. But keep in mind I'm not even close to skinny, and with my last two pregnancies ended up right at 221-222 no matter where I started (no matter how big baby is).

I am 13 1/2 weeks and I have gained about 5lbs. I thought it would have been more since all I have been craving is carbs, carbs, carbs!

Well, I'm 14w 3d and I've gained 9 lbs as of my last OB visit (which was about a week ago). I dunno if that's good or bad but nobody's complained about my weight, so I guess it's fine.

I've gained 8 pounds and I'm 13.5 weeks.

I've been sooo nauseous but I can't actually vomit. Sometimes I wish I could because I think I'd feel better. But eating every hour or two helped to keep the nausea at bay so I've been eating a lot more food than usual - even when I'm not really hungry. I just had to eat something or I'd start getting soo sick. The nausea has gotten a bit better this week and I hope to be done with it entirely in the next week. Course then we have the holidays coming up so I'm sure they will be plenty of goodies around to munch that won't help me!

Oh well. I gained 42 with my first, 49 with my second, and 35 with my third. It all came off with each one, though it came off in 4 months with #1, 6 months with #2 and 9 months with #3 so I imagine it may take my body a year to pull itself together again! So anyway, I'm not worried about it. My doctor isn't either.

I gained 46lb with ds, but had only gained 2 lb until 25weeks.

And it took a year and a half for to end up 4 pounds less than preprego weight. My body holds on to every ounce while bfing.
My dp is looking forward to it. He met me when I was heavier and he likes chubby girls. I was a size 8 before getting pregnant so not really chubby. I think dp would be happy if I was a size 18 to be honest. So I am not worried about the weight gain.

I'm 12.5 weeks and I've ganed aboout 4 lbs. BUT this time last pregnancy I had gained 12 lbs and a total of 45 by my son's birthday. Same prepreg wiight as before (130 lbs) but I had a lot more first trimester nausea. If it's any consolation, I *look* like I'm about 15 weeks preg compared to last time.

I know it isn't a bad thing necessarily to lose weight... but for me it is depressing because I NEVER lost those last 10 lbs with my son. I gained 43 but lost 33 and the last 10 just STUCK. I don't want to gain too much this time around. It's so hard to lose!
post #16 of 73
I'm about 11 weeks.... As of a week ago, I had gained 4lb, but the past week I've been kinda sick (not morning sickness, just sick) and haven't been eating much, and I weighed myself today, and I'm back at my original weight. I think I gained about 5lb in my first trimester with DS, so I'm about on track (or would be, if I hadn't been so crappy feeling)
post #17 of 73
I'm 14+ weeks and have gained 5-6 lbs. FWIW, I was underweight with my first and gained the most (at least 45-50#). With the others, my weight was fine and I still gained at least 35-40#. I gained 30# last time and would like to keep it to that or less this time as I have the same pre-pregnancy weight (138#).
post #18 of 73
I've lost 5 pounds.....but I'm a slow gainer at the beginning and totally make up for it in the home stretch I swear, I'm totally hot for most of my pregnancy and then I'm fat for a year afterward

ETA: oh yeah, I'm 14 weeks
post #19 of 73
at 12 weeks I gained 4 lbs. I had not gained anything until 20 weeks with DD and I too ended up gaining 40 at the end. I was sure I was going to step on the scale and see a 20 lb gain because my belly is huge!
post #20 of 73
I'm 11 weeks. I lost a few pounds early on, and now I think I am up about 3 lbs. I am feeling :about it because I gained 60 with DD and MW was really on my case. I feel like I am on that track again. All I want to eat the last 2 weeks is carbs. Before that I was doing really well. DD had fat shoulders and shoulder dystocia and I do think that it was due to my diet. I am hoping I can keep it under control this time.
