Hello everyone I am a regular TTC and glad I found this group. I am 5'3 and wear a 13/14. You can see by my ticker I need to lose weight! Anyway I don't want to wait ttc anymore I am 35 too. So if I were to get pregnant this cycle I am wondering how much weight is everyone gaining? I really want to keep it under control as much as possible. I don't want to deliver and weigh a ton. That will be very depressing!

If you're over weight already, the "rule of thumb" is to gain 15 or 15-20lbs. I'm almost 32wks and I've gained 9-10lbs. Lots of women will actually lose in the 1st and into the 2nd trimester, thanks to the joys of morning sickness and weird food aversions

With my daughter I started out a little overweight and I ended up gaining 65lbs.
With this pg, I am 21+ wks and I have lost 13 lbs. Haven't gained a single lb YET.
