hard for me to tell what's going on with the weight. i have a 6mo and gained 50lbs during that pregnancy. at my visit monday i was 116lbs, which is about 6lbs over my normal weight, but for all i know i hadn't lost those last few pounds before i got preggo.

i would love it if i didn't gain 50lbs this time.

I'm sure I'm gaining weight, but I think I gained quite a bit over Xmas, too, so I don't know what's baby related and what's cookie related.

I feel like I'm gaining already, but I don't have a scale in my house so I don't know. I gained 67 pounds with 1st baby. I started out a little underweight and gained normally for the most part. The last couple of months I had higher blood pressure and swelled up with a lot of water. I lost most of the weight almost immediately after birth - 30 pounds in ten days. And all but five pounds were left by 6 months PP. And the last five were gone by 9 months PP, all without ever doing any special exercize or dieting.

Tis the season, for hot apple cider!

I'm about 9 weeks or so and haven't gained anything. In fact I've lost about 7 pounds, which I only knew because I was working so hard the first couple weeks and didn't realize I was pregnant and I felt like I had lost weight, so I steped on the scale. But it's okay for me to not have gained anything so far. I gained 65 pounds with my first, lost a little over 50 of it in 8 months then slowly put back on 20 more pounds over the next two years. So starting out at 20-25 lbs overweight, I think I'm okay not to have gained yet. I'm hoping to keep the weight gain around 30 lbs with this pregnancy, not 65.

I am 11 weeks and I have gained 2-3 pounds. I am also much "poochier" and sticking out much faster than I was with my last.

I have no idea if I'm gaining weight or not, I'd guess no, since I didn't manage to gain any weight with my first two pregnancies, I did manage to gain back most of my lost weight by the end of the pregnancies though.

I never really got out of my fat jeans from my last pregnancy... but I don't think I've really changed much weight-wise. I usually start showing though about two or three minutes after the test is positive LOL

I have no clue. We don't have a scale in the house although now I am curious. Although it wouldn't do me any good. I have no idea what my weight has been for the last 6 months or so. I'd guess yes, a few pounds. My pants already are starting to get tight and bug me.
