Weight Gain?

So I'm currently 21 weeks and recently just started gaining weight (would say just these last 2 weeks) I started around 142 and this week I feel as if the scale won't stop going up! I'm 148 in the morning before a meal and by the end of the night I could be 149-150. Just got back from eating out and the scale read 151 Is it just me or is it hard for anyone else to see the numbers go up?

Re: Weight Gain?

With my first it was the hardest. This time around it is what it is and it will come off. I just try and remember how much baby weighs, extra blood, fluid, and placenta. It all adds up and will drop rapidly after birth.

Re: Weight Gain?

Not for me. I'm really petite and due to multiple food allergies I don't gain weight easily. So sometimes it's nice to see myself gaining weight .

But that's not to say I don't sometimes worry about gaining too much weight or anything. However after pregnancy you loose some of the weight so fast since a lot of it is just fluids.

I've got a head start on you... I've already gained 16 lbs at 24wks.

Re: Weight Gain?

I've got you all beat....so far anyway. I am at 16 weeks (give or take, there is some debate), and have already gained 12 pds. I freaked a little at my last appt., to have gained so much so early. My OB looked up my records from my son 4 years ago, and I am on the exact same weight gain schedule. I had gained 11 pounds by the same appt. last time. I guess it is what it is! I try to remember that our bodies will do what they need to do sometimes and there is no better reason to gain weight in the world than making a baby!

It is hard. And this is with still be under pre-pregnancy weight. Not by much but around .5 - 2 pounds.

Re: Weight Gain?

Maybe I should stop stepping on the scale everyday and let nature take its course... like that's going to happen

Re: Weight Gain?

Yeah, I don't think that I would be getting on the scale every day. The only time I hear what my weight is at, is at my appointments. I would drive myself crazy constantly checking. Although, if you are having a hard time with it, it might be easier to just see smaller gains more often instead of larger gains less often? I dunno. I just wouldn't worry about it too much. There really isn't a whole lot that you can do besides eat right and exercise.

Re: Weight Gain?

hahaha...when i went to my last appt...the nurse looked at my record after we got in the room and said while laughing..."you've had a 10 lb.s jump since your last appt" I was in shock...so far I had only gained a few pounds here and there...but that was a huge jump in 5 1/2 weeks...I told her next time to lie to me! she had to take my bp twice after telling me that!!

in general I don't worry about...we don't even own a scale at home...I know that my body is doing what it needs to make a healthy baby...that being said I also know that I can lose whatever i gain after baby comes...

Re: Weight Gain?

I have the opposite problem-I'm still in the negative for weight gain My MW has assured me that I'm doing fine and the little one is measuring ahead so he's healthy but that's just not coming through on the scale. I lost in the beginning due to being sick and I still haven't gained it all back and won't until after week 30 like I did with DD.
