So I had my routine ob visit yesterday and to my horror I am up SEVEN pounds....in TWO weeks!! WTH??? I was wearing a big sweater so maybe that had something to do with it... Haha. I guess giving into those cravings for chips and brownies has caught up with me. So I'm rapidly approaching the 30 pound mark and can def feel it. Bring on the healthy stuff now I guess!

The problem with only getting weighed at your appt's is how much your weight can fluctuate on a given day....so don't worry about it too much.

I have appt's 2x a week, and from Thurs. to Monday I had gained three pounds, and the next Thurs. I was down four, figure that one out.

But you are tiny anyway so 30 pounds is no biggie

Thank you, Meganpixel, for my awesome siggy!

So at my 30 week appointment I was suddenly up 5 lbs in 2 weeks. I freaked. I had been sooo hungry and had eaten like crazy those two weeks. After that appt I got depressed and didn't care. So I still ate whatever. I had my 32 week appointment yesterday and gained ZERO lbs since. WHEW! That seems amazing as I had a glazed donut (or two!) almost every morning this week.. and lots of other junk.

The nurse said it all evens out in the end.

yeah I went in to my last appointment and they said I had gained 5 lbs in two weeks.. I was just like, thats not happening.. I realized when I left that I think I had the room with the jipped scale, and weighed myself at my friends house when I got home, I was 2 lbs less than I was at the doctors office, and this was right after eating a big dinner So not all scales are right, even at doctors offices.. and dont forget about swelling and fluid interferring too... I do eat bad though, so if I gain alot of weight, its my own fault.

I go in next Tuesday and Monday night my ds has a project at the youth fair so I'm sure we'll eat junk food for supper. I don't even want to see the scale Salty stuff swells me up immediately.

Yeah, I don't like doctor scales, because they're actually hardly EVER accurate from being used so often. The scales need reset a lot more often than they are (you know how a scale in science class needs rebalanced to 0? Same thing, pretty much), so a doctor's scale will most likely always be a little off from what your scale says at home. I know that my scale always says that I'm at least two pounds lighter than what the doctor's scale says, and since my scale is consistent, I go by it rather than the doctor's. Don't worry about it! It'll come off afterwards.

Awwww...these things happen, and usually at this stage it is a lot of fluid retention.

good luck trying to eat healthy. I know the further along I get, the more I just don't care anymore.

Yeah that's pretty much how I feel. I'd rather eat something salty than something goo for me!
