I am just a little concerned about my weight gain. I haven't gained any weight in two weeks. Is that normal? I haven't gained much weight at all but my tummy sticks right out and I actually love my mat. pants and shirts because it jets out so much. I am just having so much trouble getting food down. Actually it's starting to get better in terms of what I can eat but the amount I can eat hasn't gotten better. I can never eat a whole meal. I get really hot and sick feeling and I have to stop eating. DH is always trying to get me to get more down but I just can't. Just wondering how much weight everyone else has gained. I understand it is a personal question so if you don't want answer I won't get offended. I can't wait to see my OB on Monday to talk to her about this. I just don't want anything bad to happen to the baby
Oh your always so helpful! I feel much better now. Thanks for sharing that with me about your DD. Whew! I do have some Ensure at work and at home just in case I ever can't eat again then I can still have something.
I'm about ready to pop here and I think I've gained TEN pounds total. Mind you, I'm not a small girl to begin with- but still. Also, for most of my pregnancy I've gained and lost the same 3 lbs. every other appointment. Don't worry about it too much, honey.
I haven't been by here in a while but wanted to respond to your post. I was horribly sick for most of my last pregnancy--I lost almost 10 pounds in one week, had to be put on an IV, prescription meds, the whole nine yards. I ended up gaining 14 pounds during the pregnancy (carried him exactly 40 weeks) and I was so worried he wouldn't be ok. He was born weighing 8 lbs 5 oz! Those little ones know how to take all they need, it just leaves you with very little.
I'm glad you're feeling better. I have the opposite problem that you do. I didn't gain hardly anything in my first trimester and have gained 27 pounds since then! Whoa! Oh well. My mom had the same problem as me in pregnancy. I think she gained about 50 lbs with all three of us. I gained 37 with Tyrael. You just do the best you can. Your baby will take what he/she needs first and leave the leftovers for you.
