I lost 8lbs the first trimester (go ms!) and have gained 3 since then...for a total overall of -5? (I am 19weeks, will be 20 on monday)
I was about 20lbs overweight to begin with so its not a big deal for me. I guess I was just shocked because I have eaten crapola food for the past few weeks and I was sure I gained a ton!
So how are you all doing? I am intrested to see the differences. My last pregnancy I gained most of mine the last 20weeks so I am sure the weight gain will start to pick up now!

Anyway, I lost 2 pounds in the first trimester due to morning sickness.
Now at 19 weeks, I'm up 14 pounds!! Yikes!! So I'm 158 total.
I still need to eat frequently otherwise I get very nauseous. So now I'm focusing on healthy snacks to try to keep the weight in check.

I was at 97 sometime before we conceived, and last time I weighed (before I got sick this week ) was at 109. So I'm guessing I've gained 9-12 lbs, and I think that's pretty good.
I just feel weird saying I'm 109 and almost half-way through my pregnancy. It sounds scary to people, but I feel healthy.
I eat like a madwoman, I want to be chubby and have a big chubby baby. So I eat past full almost every time. I have a really fast metabolism working against me (thanks, Mom ), so I'm trying to gain weight in spite of that.
But at the same time, I was only 125 at full term with dd (but not vegetarian then). So if I get to 125 eating healthy food, then I'll feel pretty good about that.
I gained 5 lbs of that over the last week and a half, so I'm just feeling a little like a fat kid right now. Baby seems to have decided get his/her growth spurt on.
I gained 60 pounds with dd and will not be repeating that again!! I 'ate for two' with her....so not necessary! I am now eating healthy well balanced meals to my hunger and am aiming to gain about 30 pounds this time around.
So far with this one I've already gained almost 20lbs I eat really well and swim everyday, so I know that this is just how my body works when pregnant.
oh yeah, I'm 19 weeks
With my last pregnancy, i gained 25 lbs by my due date, then about 15 lbs in the few weeks i went overdue
