How far along are you and how much weight have you either gained or lost? Did your doctor give you a weight range to go by?

I'm 9 weeks and I've lost 5. Doctor wasn't worried. No gain during 1st tri is normal. My doctor told me to shoot for 15 but I am overweight. 5'5" 187.

I'm 10.5 weeks along and have already gained 10 lbs. Due to my nausea, eating seemed to help that hence the weight gain. Blah. I'm 5'8" and was 145lbs to start.

I'm 5'2" and weigh 167, so I'm about 30 lbs overweight. So far I've not gained anything. My doctor didn't instruct me about weight at all. I gained exactly 30 lbs with my son, so I'd aim to gain less than that this time around, maybe between 20-25 lbs.

9 weeks-ish and I was 5 foot 4, 120 before but I've gotten sick and dropped weight. Doc said I need to gain 25-35 by the end but I'm aiming for 25. My arthritis will be screamin' even at that! lol

I'm 12.5 weeks and still down about 5 lbs from morning sickness. My weight is slowly creeping back up now that I'm feeling better though. Dr. hasn't said anything about weight gain so I would love to stay in the 30 lb range so I have less to get off afterwards!

I have no clue what I've gained right now (pretty sure I haven't lost anything) bc since I'm traveling there are no scales! I guess that could be good or bad but I'm dying to know. We're going to my husband's cousins' house tomorrow to stay so I'm hoping they have a scale (and that it's in pounds and not kg). My doctor told me that the first semester you're only suppose to gain 0 to 2 pounds. With DS I gained a total of 27 pounds and it all came off pretty easily. Unfortunately I gained 5 pounds right before I got pregnant this time so I'm hoping to not gain quite as much.

I am going on 10.5 weeks and I have gained about 8lbs :( I have to eat all the time to keep the nausea away, and I can only stomach CARBS!
