I haven't weighed myself for a week or so, but I think I'm up about 10 pounds.
I hadn't gained anything until my last appointment, and then I had a 9 pound jump! I guess I shouldn't be surprised because it was the same way with my son, but it's still a bit disconcerting to see that much in a month!
I'm just hoping not to gain nearly 60 pounds again....

I'm 17w3d and haven't really gained any weight. I also am not really showing, either.

I'm not worried because this same thing happened with #1. . .didn't gain any weight until after 20w. Still only gained 22lbs total, which is adequate for my overweight self.

I'm 15w4d, and I've gained 7lbs, though I definitely look 5-6 months pg. I'm trying very hard to gain more, because I want these babies to be fat and healthy when they're born.

im 17 weeks, and still -3.5 pounds. My last appointment i had gained 1/2 a pound since the appointment the weeks before.

I dont get it though... please no flames, but i only crave like egg mcmuffins, and i eat them for breakfast FIVE days a week. I dont eat any different than i did before pregnancy, and my dh who is about 2x the size of me loves to tell people that i eat more than him, and i still cant gain! I started at 184, and now im 180.5 but i guess it could be worse, right?

I'm 18 weeks and have gained 10lbs which I'm happy about since the first time around I gained 15-20 by now.

I started at 174 and gained 12 pounds (up to 186) between weeks 4 and 11, but then I started the gd diet and am actually down to 182 right now and haven't really gained anything the last couple weeks, so I guess 8 pounds net so far. I'm 16w2d right now.

What is the gd diet?

I do not own a scale, but do weigh myself once a week on my chiro's scale. It looks like i have gained 1- 2 lbs so far and am 18w, 1d. Pretty much the norm for me. In a month or so I will pack on like 4-6 lbs all at once. Don't be fooled though, I definitely look pg - probably much moreso than I actually am.

Oh, and I think the gd diet is "gestational diabetes."

I was begining to think I've gained too much weight! Thank goodness for the last page or so.......I'm at 20 weeks and have gained 12-14 pounds. I actually haven't gained any weight since my 18 week visit, which is odd~ But, so far I'm loving it. I gained 55 lbs with my son!!! Not that it was horrific, but I'd love to just gain 35 with this one. We'll see~ Halfway there, and so far so good~ Considering I have big babies (9.2lbs), I'm sure this one is destined to be big too~

I have no idea! I'll know for sure on Tuesday.

I was looking at belly pictures from my last pregnancy, and I looked a lot more pregnant that time than I do now. I'm still hoping to gain far less than the 50+ lbs I gained with DS.

I'm up 3.5 lbs from four weeks ago, for an overall gain of 2.5 lbs from pre-pg! But I only stopped puking daily about a week ago, so I'd better watch myself Lack of nausea fortunately also equates to getting back to the gym, so maybe I won't blow up like a balloon

I have gained 9 lbs and I am 20 wks and 1 day. I gained about 7 right away and then its been pretty steady. This is my 1st pregnancy so I really didn't know what to expect; its not too bad, I will take it!

At 17 weeks I haven't gain any. I'm the same as at 6 weeks. But I also still have some weight on from my last pg.

At my last appointment I was up 10 lbs, I think that was at 14 weeks. I'm hoping to do better with weight gain this time around. I gained 59 lbs with the first, and didn't quite lose it all before I got pregnant again. With the second one, I gained 65 lbs on top of the extra weight I didn't lose. This time around I started out at 125 lbs, so wish me luck...

I've been so worried about gaining weight with the twins (I lost 10-12 to begin with and had to put it back on) that I was actually excited to see I had gained 5lbs this week. Its actually the first 5 of the 24 I am supposed to pack on by week 24... off to get a snack!
