I know that weight gain is normal and natural. I know I am being irrational here. I just don't want to be a beached miserable whale for the last 3 mo like list time. I have really tried to be more active as well, of course with a toddler it is hard not to be. We have been spending a lot of time out and about walking and such.
So, how is everyone else doing?

Definitely need to exercise more--but with the insomnia and fatigue it's been quite impossible to get motivated! Right now I'm giving myself permission to let things happen or not and I'm not getting stressed out over it (or trying not to anyway).
I've lost 10 pounds so far and I'm 7 weeks along. I'm eating healthy foods, drinking lots of water and of course morning sickness helps a lot!
I'm trying really hard to eat good things to make up for the smaller amounts of food I'm eating. I hope all goes well. I don't want to starve my little one!
ANyone else have this problem?
I agree though, I try to just eat healthy foods and hope for the best.

I do feel like I'm getting squishier, though, so maybe I'm just losing my muscle tone. Freaking A. That took so long ;-).
It flucuates all the time.
I'm still getting purty soft in the belly and behind, though! I've barely run at all and that probably explains the soft tush, but I don't mind a bit.
I gained about 25-30 lbs with Ayla and Mason, so I anticipate about the same with Baby Bean #3.

I needed to lose some weight anyway. I just hope i dont lose 30 or 40 like i did with my last 2 pregnancies.
Morning sickness sucks!

Also, I think it's worth it because I really wasn't functioning before and now I can actually live a somewhat normal life.
This pregnancy I started at 225. So far, my weight seems to flux. I am 7 wks. I pick up 2-3 lbs one week and lose it the next. It feels like I eat every 90 minutes all day long, but they are very tiny meals.
last time i was throwing up, this time that started at about 3 weeks but was mostly over by 5 weeks or so but i've been plagued with constant nausea and excessive salivation (which makes me more nauseated). if i pop a handful of nuts i generally feel better within 15 minutes or so, for about an hour. then i have the next handful. right now i'm on a raw cashew kick.
