Even though I am up 4 lbs now, I always gain so much more in the second half! I just went back to see where I was at last time at this point and i was -12 lbs! I lost about 14-15 at the beginning last time. So that means I gained about 30 lbs in the second half last time. Since I am already overweight, this is so frustrating to think about! . Plus it was pretty much impossible to lose after my daughter!

I haven't stepped on the scale since my last Dr. appt. I was up 15lb then and it's hard for me to see even though i *know* it's for a good and necessary reason! I just normally keep a close eye on my weight so it's difficult for me to see those numbers going up, up, up without a thing i can do about it!

Yep. I am around 20 pounds up which worries me since I have a ways to go. But. Just gotta keep eating as good as I can and exercising and then get back at it after baby is born. I hear ya though. I was stressing about that yesterday.

I'd try to only eat healthy and possibly look into a diabetic diet. Its very good for both you and the baby even if you aren't diabetic.

4lbs isn't that bad, and I've seen your belly pics, your not THAT overweight and I don't remember you even being overweight at all so it must be just a little. Just try to keep eating healthy, maybe this time your going for a more steady weight gain, so it's all going to even out. I am terrified of gaining weight, in still down 8lbs, I may have gained .5lb since last week and that is scary since ok really overweight. I said I was going to do the diabetic diet but I haven't :-X and I had cut soda but now I'm drinking it for headaches so that's not good, I hate drinking my calories and I am trying to stay away from fast food, I still have it once a week but I try to choose healthier options, like a salad instead of fries or chicken instead of hamburger. And I haven't had a lot of sweets. Are you eating sweets? Maybe try to limit that, not cut completely bexuse every prego needs some sweets every now and then or even several small meals a day. I really think that has helped me. I eat small throughout the day, I can't even finish a hamburger in one setting.

I need to stay away from ice cream! I am worried about vacation....3 days and then another 6 days of eating out. I hate veggies and fruit though.
