That's me. I can't keep weight on while I'm nursing. Now I'm nursing and pregnant with severe m/s. It's fun, not.

Actually, I'm feeling much better this week. I'm not going to jinx myself and say that 13w is a magic # or anything, but I haven't been sick in 4 days now and yesterday I actually felt human. It's a record!

Okay, I'm worried I've gained more than anyone.

I'm only 14wks and I've already gained 13Lbs! That's almost a pound a week!

This is my 4th preg and I usually gain around 30Lbs total and that mostly coming during the last trimester so I am a little worried. I've had a lot of m/s but that obviously did not affect my eating. I have stopped working out though. I really need to pick that up now that my all day m/s is gone.

My midwife was not concerned. She said it is better to gain than lose so I guess I will not stress.

Oh, and I considered myself average weight pre-preg. I'm 5'4" and weighed 128lbs. Now I'm 141lbs. Yikes!:

I haven't weighed myself in a long time, not since becoming pregnant anyway. I don't even own a scale and have no plans to buy one. I know that my postpartum weight was lower than my pre-conception weight, so nursing took all my pregnancy weight off and then a bit. But I've never really been overweight, I;ve been average weight, average height all my life. I didn't gain that much last time around, and only started gaining sometime in the second trimester. I actually lost 1 kilogram sometime late in the third trimester that had my OB baffled. I was like, meh one kilo here one kilo there, probably something to do with the scale in his office more than my actual weight. I felt great, belly looked normal, baby was o.k. so whatever.

I'm only 11 weeks, but I'm not showing and I don't feel or look as if I've gained a pound (or a kilo--I'm in Europe).

I went to the OB today and I am up 11 lbs. I am 14 weeks with twins. They acted like I had overgained, but did not discourage me from eating. This is making me feel awful! I just hate when people act like I'm fat or a pig or something.
One thing I can't stand is that for twins there is all sorts of different information out there about how much weight is a good amount of weight to gain.

humph.

Well, I've lost 3 more in the last two days. Don't understand how. I'm getting 2000 calories by IV every night and I'm still heaving and losing weight.
Man, I cannot wait to start eating and catch up with you all!

I lost 5 lbs, and have regained 2 or 3 (or 0, depending on how twitchy the scale is feeling, apparently ). I'd love to only gain 10 or 15 lbs during this pregnancy, but I'd feel comfortable with a 25 lb weight gain.

I was starting to freak out a little bit. I am 12 weeks and have gained 10 pounds. I also have a huge round belly already. I know with my last pg I was barely showing at this point, in fact we were only starting to tell people and I didn't look pg at all. This time I look very obviously pg already.

DS keeps saying he is having a brother and a sister. Maybe he knows something I don't! I am not planning to have an ultrasound until 20 weeks so we have a long wait to find out for sure!

It sure looks like there is more than one in there!

I am 13 weeks along now, and I don't know how much I have gained. I don't feel that I need to know, I don't have a scale at home. The most importantr thing is that i feel that I am eating healthy and balanced diet (well, most of the time anyway )

Happy mama to DD 04 and 08 April 2011

Both of my kids keep saying that They are "fake" twins (one adopted and one biological, four months apart). So I think they want another set in the family. But we have already seen one healthy heartbeat, so I think we are in the clear.

14 weeks today, and still no gain (still down a couple of pounds pre-pg). I'm actually pretty happy about that because I'm overweight to begin with. If this pg is anything like my last one, I'll start gaining around 20w or so.

I'm beginning to get anxious about this. I am 12wks with TWINS, and despite having a big ol' pregnant belly, I have put on about 1.5lbs. That's it. I'm eating like crazy, trying to balance healthy food with high-calorie (lots of milk and cheese, peanut butter, pasta and meat along with my regular veggies and fruit). I know I need to gain more weight for these babies to be healthy, and I'm going to ask my OB about it when I see him Wednesday.

Argh!:

15 weeks today, and I am at -.5 lbs. But the nausea has only recently eased up, so now I've started eating like a horse! I'm sure to gain in the 2nd trimester...

Would you guys believe nearly 20 lbs? Yeah, me either.

I got this big belly, but I dunno where the rest of it is.

I'm 15 weeks today and back to -8.8 lbs. That was courtesy of a stomach flu so I'm sure I'll gain some of it back quickly
