I was doing so good on weight gain the first 3 months. I had actually lost a couple pounds do to MS. Well I no-longer have morning sickness so now I can't stop eating I think I have gained 10 pounds in just my 2nd trimester.

I'm up 2 lbs. So far I haven't gained tons but I know its going to start soon. I'm trying to keep healthier things in my diet so that the weight I do gain isn't all from junk food. But that doesn't totally stop me from eating things I probably shouldn't....ie french fries and the occasional soda!

I went down 3lbs and up 2lbs, so I was technically only 1lb heavier than my first appointment... but I dare say that I've gained more since then. I don't own a scale, so I'll have to wait until 10/5 to see.

I'm up 10 pounds. I'm a bit over where they would like me to be, so I'm trying to be careful. I'm eating healthy and exercising, so there's not much else I can do!

At my 14 week appt I was up 2 lbs. I never keep a scale at home so I don't stress over my weight, I just go by how my clothes are fitting. So I don't know if I've gained anything in the last two weeks but if I have I don't think it's a lot. I feel pretty good right now. I'm eating pretty good and I'm still working out so I don't really know what I could do to keep the weight down.

Oh, also wanted to add I think I've gained all my weight in my bbs. I'm already up two cup sizes!!

Let's see my first trimester I lost 11 pounds...at 15 weeks I weighed 103 and at 20 weeks I weighed 112, so I'm up 9 pounds but still negative over all. I'm losing my appetite again though so we'll see, I've laid off the pasta and burritos that I was eating, I don't even want them anymore. I have to force myself to eat. It all stays down now, but nothing sounds good anymore...

I gained four pounds in the past two weeks, but I had lost two in the first trimester. I'm up two pounds.

I am at 16 weeks and I had my dr appt today I am right at my pre pregnancy weight I lost a little bit in the first trimester and I've gained it back. Dr said not to expect it to keep even anymore but that I've done well in that department just a slow steady increase from now on and no food binges.

I lost 6 pounds in the first trimester and haven't gained any yet. But I started out overweight, so isn't it probably good I haven't gained yet?
