I've had terrible m/s so far and still managed to gain weight. It seems like eating is the only thing that satisfies me. I have already gained 5 lbs since finding out I am pregnant. I was a little underweight so I'm not worried yet, but I can't keep going at this pace.

It's a crazy life!
I started this pregnancy at a nice healthy weight and in very good physical shape (just ran in a marathon in September!), and although I haven't been able to workout the last couple weeks, I'm anxious for the nausea and exhaustion to pass so I can get in the gym again. My workout buddies miss me!
Good to hear I'm not alone. I'm not eating that unhealthy either. I do crave the weirdest things. Today I've wanted cheese. I had an egg sandwich w/cheese and tomatoes for breakfast (totally unusual choice for me) and a huge plate of mac n cheese for dinner just now (not just mac n cheese btw).

Depends on the time of day...in the mornings I'm about the same weight, in the evenings I'm awfully bloated and am up a few pounds. I've had nausea and aversions, but no actual vomiting (so far) so that's helping.
First thing in the mornings, I weigh pretty much the same as before, but last thing at night, I'm up around 1.5 kilos (around 3lbs I think)
With my last pregnancy, I gained a lot FAST in the first tri- but the nausea this time has kept my eating at bay. Maybe I'm just also a little more educated about what to eat
Oh yes I am around 11 weeks.

My MW has suggested that I gain no more than 15-20lbs since I also have the extra 40. Anyway, I had gained 20lbs with my ds by 12 weeks (I was using food to control my m/s). Yikes!!
i still feel huge though. my pants are getting a bit snug.

I'm not worried about it. I lost weight throughout most of my first twin pregnancy, due to the disaster relief work I was doing. I was a good 35lbs overweight when I got pregnant, then, after the babies were born, I was only about 10lbs overweight. I hate to think how much worse I would've felt if I'd had 25 extra pounds of fat to carry around during those last weeks (being 38wks with twins just isn't fun).
I'll be 10 weeks tomorrow.

Nothing at all. Not an ounce. After yesterday I'm probably down a few pounds. But my pants are tight. My regular jeans are muffin topping big time, and with the morning sickness I don't like wearing them.
I'll be 10 weeks tomorrow.
but with the third- omg, your body doesn't forget!! I am almost to the end of my 'big jeans' then it's on to soft waist pants.
I have gained about 5 lbs, I think.
