Was the last remark my doctor typed in his notes today. Ugggh... I am up 8 pounds. He said up 1 or down 1 is average at this point. I don't feel like I am gorging or anything. I ate really healthy pre-pregnancy and now I am super laxed, eating pizza and grilled cheese sandwiches but nothing tooooo crazy.. Arggh. Anyone else up there with me???
I haven't been weighed yet but I won't be surprised if I am up that much too. My problem is that because of my diabetes I've been having low blood sugars (common in the first tri for people with diabetes). Then I have to eat, even though often I'm not hungry.
Personally it irritates me when doctors harp on people for weight gain. It is possible to gain 50lbs while eating healthy when you are pregnant...I think the Brewer diet actually expects this of women...the diet is very healthy but it's high cal and high protein. In my case I have bigger issues at hand (managing diabetes) so when they bring it up I'm going to say something this time. Last time I gained probably 50lbs but lost it all without trying in a matter of months...I believe a lot of it was water.
I was at 8lbs up last time I weighed myself, I think it was on the weekend or late last week. I was up 10lbs the week before but I had eaten like a crazy on the weekend. Thank goodness it went away lol Im not eating any differently than I was before I got pregnant so I dunno W-T-F. I gained 60 with my last and I am really not wanting that to happen again
My butt is bigger i think, My undies are fitting oddly and I dont think I can blame that on my belly.
I'm up 9lbs..I gained 2lbs on our vacation last week in Disney World =/ we ate out a lot the 4 days we were there and the 4 days we drove to get there. 2lbs isnt sooo bad though I guess.
Its still better than the 12-15 I gained the last 2 times by 12 weeks!!!
I've been trying really hard this pregnancy to make smart food decisions..and I've still gained so Ive decided this is what my baby and body need at the moment and I can't feel bad about it.
I am up 14 pounds, probably the most here. If I'm hungry though, I'm going to eat, and my weight has leveled off quite a bit over the last 4 weeks. I just had a ravishing hunger that hasn't completely gone away.
Not every woman is going to gain the same at any point in pregnancy, either. Your gain may slow down later when most women would be gaining steadily. Maybe if further into the pregnancy you've gained way more than normal, then it might be worth talking about, but really. I've decided that I'm not worrying about weight during pregnancy, I'm just worrying about growing a healthy baby
I agree with many of these posts. It is hard to worry about weight matters when your blood sugar is dipping constantly and to keep the ickies from coming back, you have to shovel food in your face. I have to eat every 1 1/2 - 2 hrs or I am sick and tired and blah. I did lose 5 lbs in my move to a different state, but had an appt. today and looks like I gained exactly 5 back. But, I think if I hadn't lost them, I'd be up 5 lbs. Everyone is different and a lot of weight has to do with fluids. I'd rather be well hydrated and weigh more.
I am up 10 pounds. I have gained 5 pounds in the past month. Scared for my next appointment. With DS I gained 75 pounds. I really wanted it to be different this pregnancy but this time around if I don't eat every 2-3 hours I get light headed and feel like I'm seriously going to faint. I hate it but it's all for a healthy baby!
That's is ridiculous...you are amazingly fit from looking at your photo and every woman gains differently in the 1st trimester. How is your ob otherwise? If not great maybe time to find a more supportive and realistic doctor? You are doing great!

Wow I did not realize progesterone did that is it a fluid thing?

My OB doesn't mention my weight. I am up 5lbs, 1lb in the past 4 weeks. Although I attribute most of the weight gain to the time of day. The first appt and starting weight was in the morning. The last 2 appts have been in the afternoon.

I have no idea what I weighed when I got pregnant. So as far as I know, I am at 0. *shrugs* I think weight gain only matters if it happens rapidly with high bp and seeing spots and having headaches. AKA pre-e... I don't get why it is such a big deal if you are otherwise healthy. You can exercise later, don't stress yourself out and just try to make healthy choices as much as you can.
