So, I went to the store yesterday and got home around 8:00pm. I just finished one of the jars of pickles I bought... I'm obsessed!

How much weight have you gained? I had lost 16 lbs at the 16 week point and I still don't think I've gained any back. It's starting to worry me. My appetite is back to normal. I guess it will come soon enough.

Just got back from the Dr. and I have gained a total of 6 lbs so far. I lost a few and then gained them back plus a few. I would no worry about no gaining as of yet don't worry you will and it will seem as if it was overnight As long as you are eating and eating foods that are good for you for the majority the time. Depending on what your BMI was before you got pregnant will decide how much your dr. Wants you to gain it may be as little as 10-15 lbs total. Remember your baby gains a pound a week towards the end in turn you will too. I say look on the bright side the way you are going you are gonna be a skinny minnie once you pop that baby out

I think you are totally fine. I lost about 5 pounds in the beginning and I haven't gained any since then ( I have actually lost another pound in the last 2 weeks). As long as you are eating and eating healthy you should be fine!

I lost about 6 lbs at the beginning but I've only gained 4 of that back. I'm not worried though. I read that if you're heavier, like me, your body works with what it has and then starts adding more on. Because I certainly LOOK like I've gained a ton of weight LOL

Thank you *Kiliki* for the beautiful siggy

I don't normally like pickles, and have never craved them with my other pregnancies, but last night I suddenly could taste them in my mouth and really wanted some. DH just laughed at me. lol

Try Vlasic dill pickle flavored chips! They are my current obsession!

I'm up 8lbs from my starting weight I have not been eating very healthy so I hope I can keep my weight gain steady for the rest of this pregnancy.
