Do you weigh yourself everyday, once a week or just let your dr do it at your dr appointments? Do you weigh yourself at the same time of day when you weigh, the same day each week?



I weigh myself everyday at the same time and I was just wondering if I'm the only crazy person that weighs everyday. I tend to gain too much weight during pregnancy so I like to check myself daily and make sure I'm not doing that this time.

When I first found out I was pregnant I was just weighing myself once a week on Wednesdays (as that's the day my doctors appointments are made to be on) until one week when my weight jumped 10lbs... >_>
I've since been weighing everyday and I've found that I rubber band quite a bit.
I weigh myself everyday as soon as I get home from work. Basically because I'm in there anyway to pee after the 20 min car-ride. lol

I weigh myself everyday. Plus size and really don't want to gain too much, so I like to keep an eye on how I'm doing.

I don't have a particular schedule. I just get on the scale randomly. Which is usually once every couple weeks. I just got on it this morning and it's been about a week since the last time I weighed myself.

I weigh myself everyday. I have a routine. I do it the same time everyday, after I empty my bladder, before I eat, and while naked. :-) I'm a little OCD.

I weigh myself every few days. I wouldn't bother except I'm breastfeeding, and the doctors are worried about me maybe loosing weight and the baby not doing so well. So as soon as she's weaned I'm not going to bother anymore, and just let the doctors worry about it.

I cannot weigh myself regualerly dont even own a scale becuse I will become excessive and start being stupid again. I will check in every few months at the malls health store just to see normally. while pregnant its only doctors appts those happen to be weeekly right now, but right now im actually trying to gain weight so the frequency doesnt seem to be detrimental yet. once the numbers do start to rise i might have to fight off a few demons agin.

Same here. I thought I was the only crazy person that did this. Glad to know I'm not alone.

I had intended to weigh daily or every other day to make sure I was on track but between nausea/vomiting/exhaustion in first few months, I forgot at all. When I weighed myself shortly before my first OB appt, I was exactly the same weight. Then I weighed myself a few weeks later and lost a lbs. At last OB appt I was down another. If I start gaining more weight, I'll weigh more often. But not for now.

I can't weigh myself at all. I have a disorder that is directly tied to my weight and pregnant or not it would trigger if I did that. My entire family except my mother who self imposes, willingly a form of anorexia, is...to be nice, severely obese, and it absolutely is horrible. My anxiety is high as it is and I can't imagine having to look at the pounds even though I know it's for baby. can't imagine even owning a scale honestly. I don't even look at the doctors and they're well aware of my problem so they don't tell me what my weight is, just how much I've gained which doesn't bother me near as much since I know I was in healthy numbers before.

Not often enough, but when I do, it's first thing in the morning before breakfast. I stepped on the scale a few mornings ago and was pleasantly surprised I'm only up a pound! I'm plus sized too, so need to be careful this time around.
