Since our DDC seems to be a very hungry bunch I was wondering how everyone is doing with weight gain.

I think I'm gaining too much - but it's hard to tell. I'm anywhere 5-7 pounds heavier already, but I honestly think a lot of it has to be constipation-related!

Last time I checked I was up 8 lbs. That was at 9 weeks. Scared to step on the scale now.

I had been up about 6ish, but now I've dropped 4 below what I weighed in at my first appointment - I think about a 9, 10 lb loss in around 5 weeks. I'd actually put on a little weight before pregnancy, so I'm not worried too much about the loss as long as it doesn't continue and the baby is getting all the nutrients it needs.

I know now is not the time to worry about weight gain, but I was dieting when I found out I was pregnant. Since I was already heavier than I would like to be I am hoping to keep the weight gain to a minimum. Plus at my age, 40 when baby arrives I know it will be harder to loose the weight than when I was in my twenties.

I'm up 3-4 pounds. Feels like more though, I think. I can tell in my body shape that I have gained weight, and have lost muscle tone. I really need to get back to the gym.

Holding steady and not really trying either way. I have a midwife appointment next week and I have never met her. I am wondering if she is going to be a stickler about weight gain. My last midwife was amazing. She would have you weigh yourself and then just ask what it was. I didn't feel like I had someone standing over the scale judging me if I had not gained the right amount since my last appointment.

Uh, 12ish or so. By 14 weeks with my first pg I gained 20#.
I have had no morning sickness and my loss of appetite only lasted a couple days. For me, it is what it is. I'm not dieting, but I'm not eating everything in sight.
