Starting to weigh....
Mon, 09-17-2012 - 5:13pm

Just wondering how much weight you've gained so far in this pregnancy? BTDT Mamas, how does this pregnancy compare with your others thus far in terms of weight gain? What is your doctor telling you?

0-5 pounds

5-10 pounds

10-20 pounds

over 20 pounds

Well, with my first pregnancy I lost 9 lbs in the first trimster from the horrible morning sickness.


This one I have gained about 3 lbs in 10 weeks.

I've already gained 10lbs and I'm totally showing! (I'm 11wks btw). I wasn't this big with my first two pregnancies until around 5 months. I'm freaking out!

I've actually lost a couple lbs due to ms and just not bring able to eat much at a time. I'm not complaining and my ob wasn't concerned yet. I'm sure I'll catch up when I start feeling better. :-)

My scale is all messed up so I don't know how much I've gained.  There can be a 2-3 lb difference from day to day when I weigh at the same time each day.  Who knows.  I thought I had gained about 4 lbs when I went in for my last appt and the doc's scale showed I had gained about 1/2 lb.  Who knows!!  I know I've gained a little though because my pants are a little tight.  I wasn't small to begin with and I'm in the only gain 15 lbs category, so I have to be careful.  I never did lose the weight from my pregnancy with my son and I started this pregnancy 30 lbs heavier...ughhh.

I haven't gained any weight yet and that is on track with my previous pregnancy.  With DD I didn't start gaining weight until about 1/2 through the 2nd trimester.  In total I only put on 18lbs with her.  i used to question the Dr. constantly about my low weight gain and he said that he'd rather see me on the low end of the scale then the high end so he wasn't concerned.

I switched doctors for this pregnancy so we'll see if they have any different advice.  Or perhaps I'll actually gain some weight earlier and it won't be an issue?!?!?!

So far I've lost 1lbs. (but I'm starting out overweight too). With DS#1 I had gained 10lbs. Right away. With DS #2 I think I gained 2lbs. By this point.

I haven't weighed myself in 2 weeks, but my jeans fit just fine still. Last weight in I lost 6 lbs since I had a cold. My last pregnancy I gained 80+ pounds! Ya know, the I'm pregnant so eat whatever I want and just sit on my butt. so I'm being very careful not to go that way again
