Weight gain..oh my!!
Fri, 11-30-2012 - 2:14pm

Okay..so a little history.. 1st pregnancy, I gained about 50lbs (I was actually small to begin with, and lost pretty much all the weight by 6 weeks pp), 2nd pregnancy, gained about 40lbs... The last 3 pregnancies I have gained between 15-18lbs with each.. Mostly due to nasty m/s during the first trimester, and no appetite in the last trimesters.... 

 This pregnancy I have not really  had much m/s at all and have an appetite constantly..  And I have gained 12 lbs so far!! Which would be okay if I were starting off small to begin with but to tell the truth, I'm about 15lbs from where I really should be!! 

Ugghh.. How am I gonna keep my weight under control... especially when I know I should be eating healthy, but really want so cheese cake and nachos (not together..lol..)

Anyone else having the weight gain blues??

Not so much here, I've lost and haven't put it back on. I lost 65 lbs last year and have been nervous about putting on any weight again. >.<

I actually haven't gained a single pound! And I'm a little worried. I am overweight, so I don't need to gain a whole lot anyway, but nothing so far worries me. I look pregnant, feel pregnant, and can tell my uterus is rising...but the lack of weight gain scares me. I'm definitely talking to my doctor on the 27th at my checkup!
