Just curious how many weeks you are and what your weight gain has been so far.

I am 16 weeks and have gained 4 pounds. I literally JUST put them on, too. I had NO weight gain at all til 14 weeks.

I'm 16w5d and have gained 8lbs and I'm quite ashamed of myself. It is still considered a healthy amount of weight gain, but I would much rather it be 4lbs. I have no self control when it comes to my eating. It's sad.

Awww! Def not reason to be ashamed at all, mama. We SHOULD be gaining weight right now. lol I should have added that I started a bit heavier than I should have, too. I was about 30lbs over my ideal weight for my height to begin with.

I've gained 5 lbs so far. I was hoping for no weight gain at this point but I'm ok with 5lbs. I'll be 18 weeks on Sat.

Well I'm 16 weeks 3 days and I'm up 10 lbs. I had been gaining really quickly but now it seems to have slowed a little bit.

Well, I was dieting and whatnot before I got pregnant (I had lost just over 30 lbs) and now that I'm not I've gained back about 17 lbs... ~sigh~

I'm trying to get back into eating healthy without actually dieting. :/

I know my awful eating habits have contributed more to my weight gain than the baby. ;-) I've become that pregnant girl that eats everything trying to figure out what exactly it is that I'm craving but nothing seems to hit the spot.

I lost almost 15lbs the first 14 weeks and I've gained back 2lbs. I always gain most of my weight in the last 2 months.

I am at 10 lbs. I gained nothing until week 15 and then BAM! in one week I got it. It's mostly belly/boobs, and I'm still considered normal weight for my height, so I'm okay with it. I'm 5'6 and currently 150, started at 140.

Yes, a pound a week is absolutely NORMAL weight gain no matter how/when you put it on. I was just curious where everyone was at now, is all.

3 pounds. My dr calls anything under 5 pounds holding steady lol I hate her restrictions, but am pleased I'm keeping it down, since i was so overweight to begin with. If I were normal weight to begin with, I wouldn't be thinking at all about it.

16 weeks, 5 days with no weight gain. I lost 12lbs in the first trimester. And even though I started out a little overweight and the dietician assures me losing weight during pregnancy is safe as long as you eat healthy and exercise, it's still making me paranoid that I haven't even gained 1lb back.

I'm almost 17 weeks and I've lost 2lbs. Doc is not concerned though as I'm quite overweight so I'm aiming for 10-15lbs total anyways.

18 weeks today and I'm up like 15. Doc isn't concerned since I was a healthy weight before and she anticipates a slow down. I've just been soo hungry the whole pregnancy!

Im the only girl I know that doesnt touch a scale, pregnant or not. i've stayed at 110lbs - 120lbs for about 16 years so meh. Except for my last pregnancy, gained so much weight AFTER she was born and took all summer to lose it. I'll know next week at my midwife appt. She said with my size weight gain wont be an issue with me, so I dont keep track. The only issue is everything I eat goes to my gut as fat so I definitely LOOK pregnant, about six months along, but it's all squishy fat. It'll probably be like last time, by third trimester it'll "stretch out" over my large uterus and it'll be "gone".
