Has anyone else had any weight gain? I just weighed myself and saw that I've gained FOUR pounds since last week. I didn't gain any weight with DD until about 14 weeks. In fact, I lost 10 pounds in the first trimester (I was really sick). I've been really hungry, but I didn't think I'd been eating THAT much.

Please tell me I'm not alone...
At this rate I will more than double my weight by the time I give birth!

I've gained a little over 4 lbs since becoming pregnant. I'm 6w 5d today. I'm happy about the weigh gain since I was very much underweight. I don't have morning sickness.....yet, but I don't have much of an appetite. I just force myself to eat so I don't lose any weight.

Tout va s'arranger à la fin. Si elle ne fonctionne pas; ce n'est pas la fin.

I've gained about five since Christmas (I found out I was pregnant on the 27th). Some of it has to do with just coming off of Weight Watchers though. I gained 5 in the first week I knew about it, and I haven't gained since.

Wow, I'm glad I'm not the only one! I've gained approx 5 pounds. I don't mind though; it makes me feel more pregnant.

Married to my perfect match since July 2007 and joyfully expecting our first sometime around September 23rd!:

With my first pregnancy I lost weight in the 1st trimester. I couldn't eat without feeling sick. This time is very different, I am always starving, it's like I am eating for 3! So far I have gained 5 pounds...

I am only 8 weeks and have gained too much already. I feel like my appetite is so different than before preg. I feel hungry so often and my cravings are out of control! All my pants are tight. Before, if I felt like things were a little too tight I could do a little extra exercise for a couple of days and it was gone. Now, not so much. I am exercising more and it's still here! I do think I am eating way too much. I'm just afraid not to when I'm hungry b/c I read something about how if you go 6 hours without eating it can start to harm the embryo/fetus or something. Anybody else hear this?

Me too, me too!! My jeans don't fit either and it's not only because of my belly! BFing my toddler isn't helping either; I have to eat about every 2 hours!
