Has anyone besides me gained weight? Do you feel like its the hormones? I've always been a daily gym person but there have been days where I just can't go because of the hormone side effects. This month I'm trying to ignore the se's and just GO. And if not to the gym then to the elliptical in my house. Some of my clothes don't fit and I have to put a stop to this! Hoping I'm not alone in this.

Same thing happened to me! I gained weight while TTC. Even my face got chubby! I felt tired and yucky a lot and didn't work out or do all the stuff I usually did. After a few years it really wore on my body. Plus sometimes I just felt cranky or emotional!

In the first trimester of this pregnancy I lost 10lbs!! Now I am 18 weeks pregnant and still have not gained any weight! The baby is growing just fine though and the doctor is not concerned. Plus, I really had some weight I could have lost before even TTC so I shouldn't gain much during my pregnancy anyways.

Ditto! I try to avoid soda and salt and they make things worse! I weigh now what I weighted the day I had dd. I hate it. My weight started climbing in the fall after our last loss and when we started doing testing.

Well that's good to know there's a possibility you will lose weight in the 1st trimester. I keep thinking there's no chance of that.

I'm trying to lose it now, working out twice a day and tracking my food on WW.

Thanks for all the responses - its good to know I'm not alone in this!

I think it definantly comes with the territory. Plus the minute I get on any fertility meds, I swear I feel like that means I can eat whatever I want instead of watching like I usually do. And I think it is such a cruel joke to have to deal with 20 extra pounds and a failed IVF!!!

I definitely gained weight on the meds, too. And I agree that it is part meds, part stress, and part depression.

well, i have only taken femara and did not gain any weight but recently, who knows why, may be trigger shots, may be progeserone, but i went from a size 2, about a year ago, to a 4, and now a 6; and, for me, a 6 is crazy, as i have always been a 0-2; so, i feel like a fat horse too; i mean, i am 5'1 that is me, the horse, hahaha
