Weight gain thus far?

Ones everyone doing with weight gain? I'm up 2 pounds in 8 weeks which kind worries me. I like to not gain any weight in the first trimester..... I keep it more controlled that way.

Nothing yet but I am only 6 weeks in. And honestly I would not worry about 2 lbs. I go up and down 2 lbs everyday. (depending on when I weigh myself)

Re: Weight gain thus far?

I've always gained 1lb a week in the first tri, 2lbs a week in the 2nd, and back to 1lb a week through the 3rd. Every pregnancy. No matter my diet or activity level!

Going by that? I'm assuming I've gained 7-8lbs so far. I haven't weighed myself... because I don't really want to know. I battled eating disorders through my teen years and I don't like falling into those mind-sets again.

Lost a few lbs then gained it back +1lb. So im up 1lb total and im 9w today. Much better than baby #2 where I gained 10lb by my 12w appt! :/

I cannot gain over 25lb this time. I started 5lb over weight. So I think thats reasonable.

Please, don't beat yourself up over gaining weight, mamas - we are pregnant, we are supposed to gain weight. Some bodies gain more while pregnant, some gain less. But as long as you're healthy overall, don't worry about the #s.

I don't think I have really gained any weight. every morning my weight is different. and I am so bloated and constipated that I am sure that is the problem.

Re: Weight gain thus far?

Does starting the pregnancy 20 lbs ahead count? Can I blame it on the baby?
