what is happening with everyone's weight? if you don't mind my asking that is... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"><br><br>
just wondering because i am still not gaining and i am coming up on my 12th week. though, not eating for 6 weeks might have something to do with it.<br><br>
anyway i thought i would throw this out there..<br><br>
i am usually about 130 give or take, but have been holding steady at 126-7 for a while...

I've lost about 3 lbs since 6 weeks. (I'm 11 weeks now.) With DS, I lost about 10 lbs in the first tri. I think if you've got the bad nausea/vomiting going on, it's not so unusual to not gain until that passes.

I've gained 1.5 lbs so far. At my last MW appointment I had gained 2.5 lbs, but today I was only 1.5 lbs above my pre-preg weight. I'm blaming m/s! With DS I had already gained about 8-10 lbs at this point <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">

I have lost 3 - 5 pounds so far. I haven't had an appetite lately and feel full after eating small amounts. Fortunately, I haven't had any m/s yet.

At 6 wks 3 days I was up 0.5 pound from my lowest weight (after weight loss) this August.<br><br>
I hadn't weighed in at all between August and October.<br><br>
I'm not very nauseaus, but I'm also not experiencing The Hunger yet, which I know will come in the next trimester. That's when I started to gain my 40+ pounds with DS!<br><br>

I haven't gained anything yet either! By this time in my last pregnancy I had already gained at least 5lbs or more!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

With dd I lost 13 pounds in the first trimester but wound up 60 pounds over my pre-baby weight (my diet and exercise levels remained pretty constant...it was wacky).<br><br>
This time my weight is staying more or less normal. I'm generally 138 +/-3 pounds and I'm still in that range (though more in the + than in the - these days!). but none-the-less my pants aren't fitting the way they should and there are a few things I'll be packing away shortly.

No change at all yet at 11.5 weeks. Well, the weight continues to move around on my body (goodbye waistline) but no change by the numbers yet.

my scale is realllllly bad but my estimate is that i've gained about 4 lbs right in the first few weeks and held steady since then. i'm sure it was mostly boob weight. i've been surprised i haven't started the mega weight gain because i think i just gained steadily the first time. i was 146 at my midwife visit last week. my scale at home varied 136 to 140 prepreg and now is pretty steadily 142-144.<br><br>
i think i've gained just from laying on the couch so much and being so sedentary while sick. exercise has been shot.

I haven't gained any weight as of yet but believe me, I tend to pack it on reeeaaaaaaaaaaal good in the last 4 weeks!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> Ms does me in the first few months so I make up for it in the end...

Hmm...I've gained ten pounds so far, and I'm coming up on 11 weeks. In my past two pregnancies, I've gained almost 16 lbs in the first trimester so I'm down some this time around!<br><br>
My m/s hasn't been too bad...even when I'm feeling crappy I'm still ravenous.

I lost ten pounds and now in the last two weeks, I've gained back 3, or else I was wearing a lot of clothes when I got weighed at the midwife. I'm 11 weeks now.

I've gained several pounds already. I'm starving most of the time, and I find that if I eat I don't feel sick often. So, I eat! I try to stick to mostly healthy things, but I am still consuming more than I did before. I'm grateful that it's bulky sweater and cardigan time since I would never be able to conceal the changes in my body in a tank top! We're just waiting a few more weeks to tell, but I can definitely see some significant changes just in where my weight is and my shape!

I'll be the fatty in this thread, I don't care. I gain a ton of weight when I'm pregnant.<br><br>
I've gained four pounds.<br><br>
That's okay with me, by this point the first time around I'd gained 10. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I'm not sure exactly how much, but I'm up a few pounds too. The only way to deal with the constant nausea is to eat all day long so that's what I've been doing. I started out pretty small so it's probably for the best that I gain a bit during the first trimester.

I've gained around 5/7 lbs, and am in my 10th week. I gained just around 50 lbs with my first, so I'm expecting this time will be about the same.<br><br>
I believe as long as we make healthy food choices, and eat when we're hungry, our bodies generally dictate what we need to nourish our babes.<br><br>
I don't worry about it, and don't weigh myself.
