I am just over 17 weeks and I am very happy to say that so far I have lost some weight!
I like this because I gained 15 pounds with my last baby girl! She's only 10 months. I didnt have much time between to lose my baby weight!
So Im praying I dont gain too too much!
It is so much harder to lose the weight the more kids you have :-(
This is my 4th baby!
As for me ive always had a issue with weight even not pregnant. As of my last doctor appointment, july 1, i had lost 2lbs putting my gain at 2lbs. My doctor was ok with that since i was considered obese pre-pregnancy. My scale at home says ive gained 1lb since then and im 19 weeks.
I gained 4 pounds in the first 15 weeks but I now think I lost two of those pounds but won't go to the Dr. for another 3 weeks so I might gain it back by then. I know I am not eating enough on most days. I have been stressed, ugh! I am considered about 10 pounds overweight to begin with so I think I will be okay. I eventually find out when I see the Dr.
I've gained 11 pounds in 18 weeks with this pregnancy. This is about where I was with pregnancy #2. With my first pregnancy I had only gained 2 pounds by this point and my doctors were pretty worried because I was very slender to start with. They told me to each more but I had a lot of trouble because of the nausea. I find that I gain most of my weight in the 2nd half of the pregnancy so try not to be worried - there is still a long way to go! I know for me it is hard to see the numbers go up but it is so worth it and it does come off afterwards with work. I work out regularly when not pregnant and about 2 times a week the past month and that helps because I know my body is healthy. Just remember your baby needs the nutritional support so eat healthy. What to Expect has a good section on how many extra calories we should be consuming per day. Don't stress too much is my thought!
I have gained 33 pounds! I am 27 weeks and 4 days. I did start out underweight and I am having twins, Dr. thinks I should weigh more by now though! I can't eat anymore!
Mommom2 your weight gain sounds good in my opinion. Im 27weeks today and have now gained 12lbs. Since i was over weight to start doctor wants only 15-20lb weight gain.
How is everyone else with weight gain?
