C'mon ladies... fess up! What have you gained? We're all either in the 2nd trimester or just shy of it.

Me? I've gained about 5lbs but I was overweight to begin with. I'm trying to keep what weight I will gain under control since I already had some extra pounds to begin with. I started at 176 and I am now 181. I am 5'7", btw...

A tired mommy to DD (7/09) and loving wife to DH (08/06)

I have actually lost weight, which is not too surprising since the three months leading up to conception I was unemployed and spending way too much time sitting on the couch brooding about it. I actually found out I was pregnant and started my new job within two days of each other.

However, my husband keeps looking at my popped-out belly and saying "are you SURE you've lost weight?"

I don't know what my weight was at the beginning, but I'm pretty sure I've lost at least 20 pounds. Not that I couldn't afford to lose them, but I could do without the N/V.

I've gained about 3 lbs. (I haven't weighed myself in the last few days though.) However, it seems like much more since I can only fit into two pairs of pants I wore before getting pregnant. I'm on the thinner side of average to begin with.

My OB is super cool about weight gain. He told me he's not concerned about weight gain in general. However, if it seems like I'm gaining an excessive amount (like 70 pounds), he will try to find a nice way to tell me to try to slow down.

I think I've gained about 2, I am petite and only gained 20lbs with my last pregnancy (but I puked, a LOT) so I am curious to see how much I gain this time!

I'm sure I've gained too much already... darn christmas cookies! My appetite was out of control the first 10 weeks. It seems to have gone back to normal over the past few weeks, so hopefully I can control my weigh a little better.

I think I've gained 10 lbs? I'm not exactly sure of my starting weight, but that's my best guess.

Probably 2-3 lbs. I usually put on at least 5-7 by now, so I'm VERY happy!

I have gained 1-2 lbs. I was 137 lb to start with and now I am 139 or 138 depending onthe day.

I lost weight in the first trimester with DD because I was so sick. With DS i think I didn't start gaining until the second trimester but then I packed it on.

I gained 22 lbs with DD and 47 lbs with DS.

I've gained 5 pounds in the last 8 weeks (I'm at 14w 4 d). I was underweight from an enthusiastic nurser, so it's good. I'm up to what I weighed before having my ds.

I think I am up about 7 pounds. I am pretty sure my eating habits over the holidays are to blame. I am wearing my "fat jeans" but no maternity clothes yet.

I'd say about 10...I gaining that pretty quick...haven't really gained since. I swear I had m/s from 4-8wks only with DS1...and I'm 15wks and STILL feeling icky this time--but, at least it helps with weight gain! I've already planned with my brother to do a triathlon in July 2010, so I'm trying to exercise and stay in shape now, so training will be easier.

I'm about the same wt. Still have bad nausea and some vomiting (on meds, so the vomiting is better). I usually don't gain more than 13-18 lbs while pregnant b/c of the bad n/v.

Overall I've lost 3. I gained about 2 then got really sick and lost 5 and despite not feeling ill anymore and eating like a hobbit (you know, breakfast, second breakfast, elevenses, luncheon, afternoon tea, dinner, supper....) I haven't put any weight back on from when I was sick. I am small to begin with and really don't have any weight I can afford to lose.

I'm 16 weeks tomorrow. I started at 177 (still had some weight from last pregnancy) and I've gained two pounds so far. My MW isn't terribly pleased. I'm not really eating enough but I'm still really nauseous so I'm just doing the best I can.

I weighed myself last week and I was up 4 lbs, which was way better than the 10 lbs I'd felt like I'd gained! I lost 30 lbs over the summer so my goal is to keep my weight gain within that range. I'm still a good 30 lbs over my ideal weight so it's not like I need to gain a whole lot.

I'm 13w5d and I'm actually down 7 pounds. My stomach is way popped out, though, so I have no clue where I lost it from! lol I don't mind the weight loss...I'm 5'5" and started at 152 and I'm now at 145. Besides, I know I'll start packing on the pounds any day now!

I've gained b/w 8-10 lbs, depending on the time of day. I have been eating healthy, but I have totally dropped exercising for the last 13 weeks. I have been so, so tired, lightheaded and dizzy. I have been feeling slightly better for about the last week, so I think I'll start heading to the Y 3 or 4 times a week again.

I gain an exorbitant amount of weight when I'm pregnant (65 with dd1 and 80 with dd2!). But it's easy to return to pre-pregnancy weight if I eat properly and stay active throughout and after.

I had gained over 8 pounds when I stopped my obsession with weighing myself each morning. I gained way too much last time around, and I don't want that repeated. Since my m/s has finally disappeared, I'm finding it much easier to eat healthy, and so I'm not so concerned with how much I gain because it's not from too much unhealthy foods. My clothes are tight, but only around the tummy where I expect - as long as my tush and thighs fit into my pants I know I'm gaining in the right areas.

As of my appointment at the beginning of the month, I had gained 4lbs. The problem is that I lost weight over the previous four weeks and I am starting this pregnancy slightly underweight. My midwife just wants to make sure that I keep an eye on my protein intake and hopefully we will see a gain by the next appointment.

I started at 147 and at my appointment a couple days ago I was 149.4! So I think I'm doing alright! I told my DH that I'd only gained 2lbs and he looked at me in shock and asked where all the food has been going!:

I am probably the least close to my second trimester here (i'm technically due AUg 2) so that makes me mid week 11. I'm 5' 2'' and weighed 119 pre-pregnancy

I have gained 0-3 lbs depending on time of day and what i ate that day. I usually weigh myself in the AM before meals, naked, after pee and poo. Then I have always gained less than 2 and sometimes none.

I am REALLY watching it. I gained 80 with my last baby, alot was fluid in my last month and I want to make sure I take that into consideration. I am hoping for about 30-35 lbs total

I'm 16 weeks and down 12-15 lbs depending on the day. I had a lot of extra fluff though, and my midwife is really happy. No nausea either.
