MamaRainebeau I've been so worried about gaining weight with the twins (I lost 10-12 to begin with and had to put it back on) that I was actually excited to see I had gained 5lbs this week. Its actually the first 5 of the 24 I am supposed to pack on by week 24... off to get a snack!

mleh99 At my last appointment I was up 10 lbs, I think that was at 14 weeks. I'm hoping to do better with weight gain this time around. I gained 59 lbs with the first, and didn't quite lose it all before I got pregnant again. With the second one, I gained 65 lbs on top of the extra weight I didn't lose. This time around I started out at 125 lbs, so wish me luck...

rad At 17 weeks I haven't gain any. I'm the same as at 6 weeks. But I also still have some weight on from my last pg.

FoxintheSnow I just had a mw appt and lose 4 more lbs! This pregnancy turned out to be a good diet lol. The baby is defintiely growing though!

Dayduh I have gained 9 lbs and I am 20 wks and 1 day. I gained about 7 right away and then its been pretty steady. This is my 1st pregnancy so I really didn't know what to expect; its not too bad, I will take it!
10-14-2007 12:41 AM
lilkat I'm up 3.5 lbs from four weeks ago, for an overall gain of 2.5 lbs from pre-pg! But I only stopped puking daily about a week ago, so I'd better watch myself Lack of nausea fortunately also equates to getting back to the gym, so maybe I won't blow up like a balloon

jerawo I have no idea! I'll know for sure on Tuesday.

I was looking at belly pictures from my last pregnancy, and I looked a lot more pregnant that time than I do now. I'm still hoping to gain far less than the 50+ lbs I gained with DS.

alisaparrent I was begining to think I've gained too much weight! Thank goodness for the last page or so.......I'm at 20 weeks and have gained 12-14 pounds. I actually haven't gained any weight since my 18 week visit, which is odd~ But, so far I'm loving it. I gained 55 lbs with my son!!! Not that it was horrific, but I'd love to just gain 35 with this one. We'll see~ Halfway there, and so far so good~ Considering I have big babies (9.2lbs), I'm sure this one is destined to be big too~

Yes, gestational diabetes...sorry.

doulanichole I do not own a scale, but do weigh myself once a week on my chiro's scale. It looks like i have gained 1- 2 lbs so far and am 18w, 1d. Pretty much the norm for me. In a month or so I will pack on like 4-6 lbs all at once. Don't be fooled though, I definitely look pg - probably much moreso than I actually am.

damselfly41 2 pounds at 15w2d.

nugglemama I was so happy. I stepped on the scale yesterday and it looks as if I am finally putting on weight. 3 pounds gain.YAY. 19 weeks today.

mama2q I'm 18 weeks and have gained 10lbs which I'm happy about since the first time around I gained 15-20 by now.
10-12-2007 02:01 PM
AGierald im 17 weeks, and still -3.5 pounds. My last appointment i had gained 1/2 a pound since the appointment the weeks before.

I dont get it though... please no flames, but i only crave like egg mcmuffins, and i eat them for breakfast FIVE days a week. I dont eat any different than i did before pregnancy, and my dh who is about 2x the size of me loves to tell people that i eat more than him, and i still cant gain! I started at 184, and now im 180.5 but i guess it could be worse, right?
10-12-2007 01:58 PM
uccellina I'm 15w4d, and I've gained 7lbs, though I definitely look 5-6 months pg. I'm trying very hard to gain more, because I want these babies to be fat and healthy when they're born.
10-12-2007 01:34 PM
crazydiamond I'm 17w3d and haven't really gained any weight. I also am not really showing, either.

I'm not worried because this same thing happened with #1. . .didn't gain any weight until after 20w. Still only gained 22lbs total, which is adequate for my overweight self.
10-12-2007 10:36 AM
CherryBomb 19w2d and I've gained about 15 pounds.
10-12-2007 09:27 AM
zaner'smama I haven't weighed myself for a week or so, but I think I'm up about 10 pounds.
I hadn't gained anything until my last appointment, and then I had a 9 pound jump! I guess I shouldn't be surprised because it was the same way with my son, but it's still a bit disconcerting to see that much in a month!
I'm just hoping not to gain nearly 60 pounds again....
10-11-2007 03:46 PM
Romana I've gained between 0 and 1 lb total. I lost four pounds, and regained them, plus up to one more. I'd like to keep my total gain reasonably low, since I was a little overweight before getting pregnant. I'd be fine with anything up to 25 lb gain, though.

I'm 18w4d today. Also showing pretty darn big . . . everyone can tell I'm pregnant now.

My3WinterBabies I'm 19 wks and up 9 lbs
10-11-2007 01:29 AM
JustJamie I'm still about 10 pounds under my pre-pg weight; I also am not really showing at all, though my pants are tight.
10-11-2007 01:26 AM
vanauken I just hit 17 weeks today (I think), and I'm up about ten pounds. Not great, not awful. Less than last time I think, which is good. I've lost all my pregnancy weight both times previously, but it'd be lovely not to have quite so MUCH to lose, y'know? So I'm hoping I can keep up with this nice, reasonable weight gain this time around.
10-11-2007 12:43 AM
patchynurse I am 17 weeks and up 3 lbs
10-10-2007 10:11 PM
salt_phoenix 20 pounds! :
halfway there!
10-10-2007 09:56 PM
Trinitty I look really pregnant. I have a feeling that I will look like I swallowed a beach ball.
10-10-2007 09:53 PM
delaneymom I'm 18w3d, and have gained 3 pounds. I'm really happy with that since I had quite a bit of extra to begin with.
10-10-2007 09:30 PM
DBZ At 18 weeks I have gained 15lbs so far But I guess that isn't too bad for being nearly halfway thru this pg.
10-10-2007 09:18 PM
Funnie I am 16w1d and have gained 6.5lbs. I seem to be gaining a lot slower. With our first I gained 38 total and ous second 33 plus I think about 5 lbs of water because of the pre-e.
