I think I've gained maybe 3 lbs--I'll be 13 weeks tomorrow. I have a dr. appt today, so we'll see for sure.

Edited: Well, I've only gained back the 1 lb I lost from week 5-9. So I'm still 135, my starting weight. I feel much larger, though!

Lost 6 lbs at 12 weeks. Typical for me.

I'm 5'10" I needed to add that so no one thought I was big lol I wear a size 6-8

I started at 151 and I think I'm at 153. last pregnancy I only gained about 21 lbs I hope to do the same this time around. Oh and I'm 14w4d lol

I'm in my 14th week and my weight keeps fluctuating big time... I had gained 4 lbs, then lost it all from morning sickness I guess... Currently I am only 1 lb up from pre-pregnancy weight.

no idea. No scale, not going to the mw until almost the end of the month.

Weighed 111 at beginning of pregnancy, went down to 102 because of morning sickness, and now weight 105.

Barely gained 15 lbs with DD for the same reason, but she was fine and is now a healthy 8 y.o.!

Well I had morning, more like afternoon, sickness up until 9 weeks though I didn't throw up or eat very much I maintained my weight. I am now nearly 13 weeks and I am down a pound from prior to pregnancy. Based on calculators for weight vs gain during pregnancy they tell me I should only "let" myself gain 22 lbs. As I typically do I will eat what I want when I want within reason. Thankfully most of the things I want to eat are good for me and the baby.

Where did you find a calculator for that? On the internet?

we don't own a scale either so it's hard for me to say. my first appt. was last week at 9 weeks and i was 141 on their scale. i was happy with that since my mom's scale said 145 a couple weeks before i got pregnant.. i think theirs is always a couple pounds off though. i also have lots of nausea - therefore haven't been eating that much.

hoping i only gain around 30 lbs. like i did with my last (already starting out 5 lbs. heavier though)!

I think I've lost about 3-4 pounds. With DD, I lost 9 pounds in the first tri. Which is wierd, msince I'm well within the "normal" range for BMI and all athat stuff. But I def. have a baby belly starting!

We don't own a scale, either. Actually, I'm having a homebirth with a MW so one of my questions for her next appt. here at my house is if she wants me to get one.

I weigh myself at the gym, and in the first trimester I lost about 7 lbs. I know I have gained in the middle since then but luckily not everywhere else. I haven't weighed in over a month--maybe I should do that

Last time I gained 60+ lbs. and had a really healthy complication-free pregnancy, so I kind of believe in just letting your body do what it wants to do. I am nursing this time around, and running after a toddler, whereas I had a sedentary desk job before, and I have had more morning sickness this time so it makes sense I'm not gaining as much. But I hope to gain a healthy 25 at least, if not more. I loved my sturdy 9 lb. newborn! He was such a tank!!

Alright, you're all making me feel bad! I've gained nearly 12 pounds (only 1/2 pound in th last thre weeks.) I think most of it is water weight because I'm swelling a ton. I had to remove my wedding rings about 6 weeks ago. It's very atypical for me to gain weight in the first trimester. I lost a couple pounds in the first tri with the first two. I've been eating very healthy so I'm not concerned about it.

I usually gain 25 to 30 pounds the whole pregnancy. I sure hope that's not different this time!

Huh. Annanicole, did I misinterpret your comment? It sounded like you were adding your height lest anyone think you were "big" at 150. Well, I'm shorter than you and I wasn't big at 150 and I'm not going to feel bad about posting my weight and weight gain here. I'm 234 at 11 weeks and haven't gained any weight.

There is a link in one of the bottom paragraphs on weight here http://www.i-am-pregnant.com/Pregnancy/calendar/week/10 Gives you your BMI and "clinical expected" weight gain per month throughout pregnancy based on your input. I laugh at the 22 lbs it "allows" me given my weight/height. If I do that on a HEALTHY diet fine but I'm not gonna worry if I gain 30. I don't WANT to be fatter than I already am. Breastfeeding will take care of some of it later.

On another note the website DOES give really good explanations of week by week progression of a pregnancy. www.i-am-pregnant.com

Yeah... my midwife wants me to only gain 20 lbs for my weight and height, but I told her I'm not going to stress out about it. I eat relativley healthy... lost 20 lbs before I got pregnant due to lifestyle changes. But I don't know anyone who only gained 20 lbs! Yes, I'm overweight... but not drastically so in my opinion. *shrugs*

The calculator thing that CozMama provided a link to says I should look to only gain 24 lbs... wow they gave me 4 more than my midwife! lol

ooo! But I'm way under the weight they predicted I'd be in month 4! Maybe I'll swing this without trying. lol

I had gained some lbs. but then lost it. Right back where I started going by home scale. I see my MW tomorrow, & see what her scale says.

I've lost 11 lbs. I started out 216 and am 205 now. With my daughter, I lost 13 lbs the WHOLE pregnancy, so I have no idea if this is a prelude to weight gain or if I'm going to lose a lot more... I'm not worried, because my OB said that it looked like that's just what my body does, since I eat more when I'm pregnant, my metabolism goes faster. But it does make me feel cruddy, because I feel like I keep looking fatter instead of more pregnant and I can't even blame being pregnant for how big I am (which is still 50 lbs less than the beginning of my last pregnancy, where I was 255).

Since I'm 'obese' I'm supposed to gain 0-15 lbs, so I guess it's good I lose instead of gaining. But I need to recheck my BMI, I think it's gone down another point or two.

I didn't mean to be insulting it was more for me. I think everyone has their own level of weight comfort. I know I would much prefer to be 135 to consider myself thin again, and my sister who's over 200 feels dropping to 180 would make her thin. As it was a comment for me, not to pass judgement on others weight and size.
