Well right after Easter I was up to 158 or so, mostly just bloat I think. But now I am at 153.4, so technically I have lost weight. Most of that is because I just quit eating junk.

I am hoping to not gain more than 20 pounds, so I am happy with myself right now.

I am 13 wks 2 days and have gained .5 lbs. Which is odd for me, at this point I have usually gained about 8. I have never had food problems like this before.

Whew, you guys are making me feel better. I feel like most of the time these posts are put up and EVERYONE says, "Oh I haven't gained any" and then I think, "sheesh, I've gained 5 lbs already, what's wrong with me??"

Everyone's different and will gain different amounts at different rates, it's just nice to see that there are others that have gained too!

I am 13 weeks, but as of my 12 week appointment last week, I had already gained ten pounds from where I know I was when I conceived. I'm up 3 lbs. from what I weighed at my first prenatal appointment at 8 weeks, but by then I had already put on several pounds in bloat and insatiable cravings.

I am trying not to worry too much about how much weight I put on during this pregnancy. I will continue to remind myself that I WILL get it off after baby is born. No "ifs". No "buts".

I started at 145lbs, was 147 at my first appt, then 144 at my 2nd. Right now, according to my crappy old school scale I'm 150lbs. So I've gained 5lbs, but I wouldn't be surprised if its from being constipated

I've lost 5lb but I'm overweight to begin with and have been so sick! With my ds, I gave birth weighing less than when i got pregnant and gained it all back after he was born so I'm just a little strange.

I am 13 weeks, but at my monthly appointment last Thursday, I'd actually lost 2 lbs. I'm guessing that the loss of body fat/weight is greater, as I have definitely gained in the chest/tummy region. I couldn't believe the scale, but it was the same when I checked at home. Weird...

Some days my weight gain is zero others up to 2lbs. I figure it's just water weight if I am gaining since I'm trying to add salt to my foods (per my Dr's recommendation) to help with my low BP and dizzy spells. My belly is noticeably bigger though and I have had to buy maternity clothes already. With Marina I gained 55lbs and really hope chasing her around prevents that this time! By the time I started the 2nd tri last time I had gained 10lbs (but I was 10lbs lighter) so I figure I'm doing okay.

I am currently down 7 lbs overall, but up 4 from my lowest point. But if my previous two pregnancies are any indication, once I start gaining, I never stop. I gained 55 lbs with DS and 65 lbs with DD. I would love to gain less this time around, but I don't know how much control I really have. All the women on my mom's side of the family gain a lot during pregnancy, regardless of their eating habits. It seems our bodies just want to make sure that our babies are well nourished

I haven't weighed myself since last week and then I was up 7lbs but that is 2lbs down from the week before so I am ok with it...for now.

I would really like to keep it down to a 20lb gain this time so it would be good if I could stay the same for a few weeks.

It gave me 15-25 pounds, with the 'ideal' being 20. That was my goal anyway. Of course it estimated baby to be 7.5 pounds and I highly doubt the baby will be that small. So I think I can safely add another pound or two

I gained 10lbs almost immediately, but I seem to have lost it all now. So no change, really. I haven't weighed myself in a few days though, so I wouldn't be surprised if I'm up a couple of pounds. I feel more solid - not in a water weight way, but an actual belly way. The weight thing that Ceilidh posted says I ought to gain around 30lbs. I can deal with that I guess, but ugh, I just hope I don't have too much trouble losing the extra weight afterward.
