I only get weighed at midwife appointments. As of this morning, I've gained a pound. She's not concerned, because the uterus is growing and there's a beating heart in there! My body tells me what I need.. if I ignore hunger for too long I get nauseous, so I have incentive to eat enough!

I am down one pound at 16 weeks. I am 5'6", and my starting weight was 133. With DD I started at a smaller weight and lost 7 pounds during the first trimester. I didn't start gaining until the end of 5 months and I gained 27 lbs total.

I've gained about 9 pounds. Tomorrow I'm considered 14 weeks. So I'm up to 112 (5'5" tall). I find that with each pregnancy, I immediately put on some weight, and then don't gain as quickly for a while after that. All my pregnancies have had healthy weight gain (~30 pounds). I do think that I have gotten a lot bigger this time than with my previous pregnancies at this stage, but I trust that my body knows what it is doing. My jeans actually fit better now! I had bought them when I thought I was back to my regular size after my last baby was born, but I still had a few pounds to go. I wish I could have stayed that size! Oh well, I'm underweight, but healthy as anything!

I am down a couple pounds, but I had some morning sickness which is just starting to fade now. I am not sure how I will ever gain, because I can only eat tiny amounts of food at time (It's like there is less room for food), and I was always a girl with a big appetite. I could have stood to lose a few pounds anyway, so I am not too worried about it.

At 12 weeks tomorrow, it seems like the m/s is over. (Knock wood!) So far, I've gained two pounds, but started 6-9 pounds heavier than previous pregnancies. Still, if I'm slow and steady, I'll be happy...I do feel like I'm eating almost constantly, and if it's only 2 pounds, they are RIGHT IN FRONT. I can't wear non-maternity pants anymore; I can't stand anything binding around my waist!

I am very overweight, and have lost 4 pounds. I plan on not gaining any weight for this pregnancy. We will see how it goes. Here is an article on the research I found that helped me to make this decision.

I'm 13 and a half weeks or so - I've lost a total of 7 lb. I will probably start to gain again (and rapidly) in another 2 weeks or so? LOL. I'm positive this is a girl pregnancy lol. My sons were all the same. My daughters pregnancy was very different from the boys and is identical to this one. I lost weight with dd and then gained.

13 weeks 1 day and up 3-4lbs. I am thrilled. Last time I was up close to 15 by the end of the first trimester, 20 at 20 weeks, and 60 by the end. I am hoping to gain less this time.

i'm envious of some of you gaining only a few pounds.

i was 127 before and after 15 weeks, i've gained 10 lbs. i'm 5'2. i'm really trying to watch what i eat because i can pack on these pounds faster than anything else.

i think what has prevented some of my weight gain is that i've been sick sick the last month or so and was vomiting lotsa things.

with my first, i gained 60 pounds and with my second, i gained 55 pounds. no vomiting with these two. i don't want to gain a lot of weight because it's hard trying to lose them afterwards. oh well...still over 5 months to go.

I'm 5'4" and started at 126lbs. I'm 16 weeks and put on 7.5lbs. It's like I popped out this past week, most of my weight gain has been during the past two weeks and I've officially moved on to the next size up in clothes I bought during the holiday sales.

Loving this 2nd trimester becuase I'm not sick anymore!

I'm 5'2 and started at around 98 lbs. and I am 15w2d and am now 111. I know that sounds quite a bit to gain but I also quit smoking the day I got my BFP and have not been sick at all so I ate a bit more frequently. I gain most have that by the time I was 10 weeks so now that I'm at an ideal body weight for my size hopefully it will continue to be a slow gain as the last 4 weeks have been.

let's see. . .
I started at 103lb and am now 97lb, thanks to breastfeeding my 1yr old through morning sickness.
(I was 112lb before my last pregnancy and gained about 16lb which I then promptly lost + another 9lb)

Gaining weight/eating during pregnancy is not my strong point

I do have a nice little belly showing though - helps that I'm 4'11" and anything shows!

. . . anyway, off to find another snack

10 lbs...starting to get scared that I will gain 50 lbs again with this pregnancy like I did with the last one. I had only taken about 20 of it off before getting pregnant again. I felt like if I waited to loose all the weight, I'd be a Grandmother!

Still 1 lb but I am totally showing. I guess it is the 3rd baby but I am shocked to be showing this early, especially as I am trying to keep it under wraps at work. Hopefully people just think I am packing on some weight!

Well, I just weighed myself this morning after a shower and it looks like I've lost about four lbs.
