I will probably post a lot about weight If you don't like obsessing like myself.. just ignore these
So, who has stayed the same.. lost.. gained weight?
I've fluctuated the last 6 weeks... I've ranged from 150.8-159. I was in the lower 150's early Dec after eating much cleaner the couple weeks before that.. then I fell off the wagon so to speak. lol My weight shot up to the higher pretty quick.. since finding out I was pg it's slipped down some.. 153.6 today.
Just curious.. I hate fluctuating.. drives me nuts, but i don't have a set routine with water and eating or exercise, so it shouldn't surprise me. All I know is I'm starting out much heavier than I want.. so I'm hoping to not get a lecture at the OB's office or gain much if anything this first trimester.

I am way heavier than I wanted to be starting my pg. I am working really hard to eat healthily, drinking only water and exercise. I would love to lose some in the beginning. I lost at the beginning of my other 2 pregnancies without really trying to. My OB is fine with me losing as long as it is from healthy eating. I think I've lost a couple pounds.

I've stayed the same but I'm so early. I'm sure once the bloating hits I'll gain. I lost a lot the first two trimesters with DD but I also started that pregnancy about 40 lbs heavier than I am now. I'm pretty stressed (maybe that word is too strong) to gain weight. I know it's normal and needs to happen but I spent pretty much my whole life a little overweight and after DD for the first time ever I got to a great weight. I just hope I don't gain out of control.
Gee I am a cow compared to you skinny minnies! I have been overweight my entire life. In May 2011 I hit my heaviest weight and decide to change my life. I lost over 70lbs. I have gained some back and had joined WW again (probably the same time I conceived) and started going to the gym more. I have actually lost 6.4lbs since rejoining WW. I heard that I can still do the program but I should do it as a nursing mother that way I get the necessary point to feed 2 people. I plan to continue eating healthy and going to the gym for as long as I can.
I haven't gained anything, but I starting to bloat. I haven't ever had problems with gaining too much in pregnancy. I usually hover between 20-25lbs total weight gain. And I haven't had trouble losing it after giving birth. So I am not to worried about it this time around

I am worried because I'm heavier than I wanted to be to start out. I lost a lot of weight like a year ago and gained a lot of it back...i nearly died when I got on the scale at the doctor but I'm also extremely bloated. I'm not going to stress about it. With the way I've been feeling I'm happy when I feel like eating something...
Gee I am a cow compared to you skinny minnies! I have been overweight my entire life.
That's how I am too! I lost 80lbs last year and was planning on losing the next 60 this year butttt now I know I can't continue doing what I was doing while pg. I do plan on keeping my weight in check and eating healthy while exercising as much as possible between fatigue, work, college and Mommy duties.
Holy tiny girls! I would love to stay about where I did when Prego with my 4th. I gained under 15lbs due to my GD diet in the end but I've gained anywhere from 25-35 with my other 3 and had no trouble losing. I'm wondering if I could do the same now with my 5th?!
