It's weird-two days ago I was 2 pounds heavier than I am today. So I haven't gained anything.

I'm down 5 lbs. But now that's it warmer, we've been walking a lot, so I'm sure that's helping.

Seriously, I am not posting that to tease you. I actually remembered you saying it because I loved it. I have been a skinny girl all my life and my first pregnancy I was very concerned about gaining weight, staying fit, and getting back in shape the moment I left the hospital. IT SUCKED!

I think sometimes when you have spent your life being told you are so lucky to be thin, to have a tiny waist, blah blah blah... it is disconcerting to know that may change and also to feel a little out of control of it all. Let go a bit if you can, you eat healthy and exercise and you will gain the appropriate amount of weight for you and your baby.
I thought this same thing

I have gained 3-4 lbs give or take, I guess. I have always been complimented on my figure but don't like being complimented on my physical traits so much. I'm enjoying having a new look and body that is doing its job.. Just like when I was an athlete I liked being complimented on my hard work.

So far I haven't gained anything, at least that's what my grandma's scales are telling me. I weigh myself every Sunday morning just to keep track (because I gained like 65lbs when I was pregnant with Dd), I have my MFP set to maintain but I cheat A LOT so I honestly thought I would have gained some by now.

I keep floating around the same 2lbs. I was pre-pg weight a few days ago, but I don't weight myself daily anymore. I usually lose weight in the first tri, but since my appetite has been healthy this pg and I haven't really had much in the way of nausea, I didn't get that benefit this time.

You might not have gained anything. Your digestive system slows with pregnancy so you might be carrying that extra weight... if you know what I mean

I've lost 20lbs so I'm no help. Sorry. I cried last time they told me I lost weight. I mean, bawled like a baby. I WISH I could gain weight and keep trying so hard to. Good luck maintaining your goal though!

I lost 2lbs up until Friday, I was back to normal, then today I gained 1lb. I was a bad girl with DD and gained 71lbs (un-treated hypothyroid though) so I was surprised when my dr was like you lost 2lbs, your supposed to be gaining. I'm 10 weeks today so I assume a little gain is on the horizon.

I have gained about 6- 8 lbs. It fluctuates and I am almost out of the first trimester. I am therefore not too worried. Not surprized either as I had to eat a ton from 5 - 9 weeks to stave off nausea. After than my appetite has reduced a bit. I just follow my body's lead.
