Let's dish. Tell me how many weeks you are and how much you've gained.

Me? 13 weeks, 4 lbs. I feel like it should be more since I have been eating like crazy and I am expecting twins, but.... it'll happen.

Good afternoon Yogafeet!!!
I am 13w4d and have gained 3 lbs. I came into this overweight, so changing my eating and drinking habits was critical.

I'm 14 weeks. I'm back to my starting weight after losing three or four pounds.

I'm 12w4d and haven't gained anything. In fact, I've lost about 5lbs since becoming pregnant, which I'm pretty happy with since I'm overweight to begin with. I didn't have much morning sickness, so it wasn't really that, but probably just an increased metabolism (it's usually super slow). So I'm still very nourished and hydrated, so no problem there

I'm down almost 10 lbs. I have been having terrible sickness. At least once a week, I have a 24 hour stretch of not being able to tolerate anything. Next time it happens (fingers x'd that it doesn't), I'm going in for IV fluids. My reserves are gone. I'm small to begin with. Being dehydrated does me NO favors.

Vent over...

I'm at -5lbs since getting pregnant. I was at -8 but have gained 3 pounds in two days since my m/s has gone away! I'm really going to have to start watching it because the plan is to not gain any with this pregnancy. Edited to add... I'm 12w6d now.

I was about 8 pounds heavy when I got pregnant. Since then I'm only up about 1 pound. So I guess you could count that as 9 total. I'm hoping to gain about 5-7 pounds in the second tri.

I was down about 15-20 lbs, which set me at my pre-pg weight from the LAST round of pregnancy. (Does that make sense?) Now I'm about 15 lbs down still but I'm starting to be able to eat again, which makes me happy.

I think I'm about the same. I haven't weighed myself in awhile but last time I hadn't gained at all and I've been kinda sick so I imagine I'm still about the same.

Your not the only one I've gained 10. I'm getting back on track though. I don't want to gain too much. Tonight was bad though. Me and a friend ordered Chinese. I'm still full LOL.

I"m 13 weeks tomorrow and still at the same weight. But, I'm overweight to begin with so I don't want to gain more than 15 lbs total for the pregnancy.

just under 12 weeks, no weight gain. I'm about 30 pounds over my ideal weight, so I'm hoping to maintain my current weight for as long as possible.

Add me to the small but proud list of gainers!! I'm 15 weeks and up something like 7-9 pounds, depending on the day. Which I feel is appropriate! Lolafanana and DBZ, babies are *supposed* to make you gain weight! I'm looking forward to my pound a week from now on.

Me , him , and the two most beautiful little lovey girls in the world: 3/08 and 1/10. Planning our escape from the treadmill!
