I haven't gained anything in the past 3 weeks. It was about that time that my constant hunger/nausea went away. I know with ds my body followed a similar pattern, gain about 4-5 pounds the first 10 weeks, then a big stall for about 6-8 weeks and then gaining with leaps and bounds aright after we found out the sex until birth. So far i have gained about 5 lbs total at 13 +6days. Anyone else there? My eating habits have seemed to go back to pre-pregnancy as far as hunger, although i am still reluctant to eat some things still.

Depending on the day, I am still down 2-5 pounds from my pre pg weight. Normally by now I would have gained at least a couple pounds, on track to gain 10 or so by 20 weeks, but I am starting off heavier this time.

As long as the babe seems to be growing well, I'm not going to worry about it.

I do think eating changes can have a lot to do with it, I know I can't eat anything that doesn't sound good and I can't eat one bite past when I am full (that's a good thing for me!).

I gained 13 lbs. in my first trimester, but since (I'm 16 weeks now) haven't gained any. It is a bit strange since my m/s is gone, but I do notice I am eating less. My stomach seems to growing outwards though, so I'm not really worried.

ME! I haven't gained anything in 5 weeks! In fact, I lost a pound after my 12 week apt! The dr. didn't say anything after reviewing my weight and stuff.... so I'm assuming it's all good?

I'm definitely eating healthy and taking in more calories a day, but I have a job where I swear I walk at least 10 miles a day! Yikes.

Glad I'm not alone here!
