I am down ten which I attribute to terrible morning noon and night sickness and my being very overweight to begin with. My doctor doesn't want me gaining much since I am so big to begin with. I didn't gain much with my son but he was just one and all I wanted with him were strawberries haha. I've only recently been able to keep food down and I have to eat every hour or two to do that. Plus I've had a lot of bathroom problems so I've had to up my water and fiber. We shall see

Well I had lost about 7 lbs since the beginning of my pregnancy thanks to MS, I started out at around 139 (I'm 5'8") and got down to 132 but gained 3 lbs back and I'm 135 now so haven't gained any weight at all, the Dr isn't concerned since its so early so I won't complain.. Lol I'm trying not to gain more than 20lbs. I finally got my appetite back 2 weeks ago so I'm sure i'll start gaining weight soon.

I have lost 2 lbs, but I'm healthy and the doc said I can continue to slowly lose weight in a healthy manner. he said weights for the arms only and cardio so long as i keep my heart rate under 140.

I started this pregnancy at 116. Haven't gained anything yet but I know that's about to change. Started at the same weight with DS and gained about 35lbs so I figure it will probably be about the same this time.

Started at 144 (I'm 5'11") and as of last week was 146. But that was when I was still running twice a week. That's been put on hold with my SCH. I am not looking forward to gaining too much. I gained 40 lbs with my first, and I looked and felt awful. It took a year to lose. I gained 28 with my second and felt great. It took 9 months to lose without exercise. I really wanted to stay active but I'm not sure that will work out anymore

With my last baby, I had gained 40lbs when I had her at 31wks. I had lost all that, plus 5lbs but then lost another 5lbs with the ms. Since being on meds, I've been gaining it back so I've gained 6lbs but only up 1lb. I expect to really pack it on when the ms goes away.

I've lost 3 lbs thanks to my extreme nausea. Since that is getting better everyday, I expect that to change soon.

Oh gosh, my weight fluctuates throughout the day. I've gained between 5 and 9 pounds. But, I have finally found the energy to start going back to the gym, so hopefully I won't gain any more fat weight and keep it to just baby weight.

As far as gaining weight from being pregnant I have gained about 5lbs. BUT....I feel much bigger because in June/July I was at 133ish. Each IVF cycle adds about 10-15 lbs of hormone and sometimes fluid weight. After the first I was at 142ish and then I never lost that because I went right into the second cycle and I ended that cycle at 151lb. So technically I was 151 when I got pregnant and I am 156 now. Heaviest I've ever been and it is currently very depressing because I know most of this weight is from just *trying* to get pregnant not actually being pregnant.

So far I'm about the same (maybe gained a pound) but I swear I've gained like five inches of bloated gut.

I'm 14.5 weeks and I've gained 12 pounds to date. Mostly in my stomach and boobs, I have never had but a super flat stomach and now it is thick! Not showy but like padded now. Sooo weird. I am crazy excited for the big belly.

I've gained about 4lbs, started at 121 and now 125. It kinda freaked me out a bit because with DD I didn't gain anything until 17 wks and then it was only 1 lb. I was much sicker with her and didn't eat much for the 1st 3 mos. This time I feel pretty good (and I'm so thankful) but I've been eating like a cow since the beginging. With DD I gained 25lbs and plan to try to stay around that again. I've been excersising 5 days a week since the begining also and still gained...yikes.

I'm overweight to begin with, so it's not a huge concern if I don't gain much weight at all during this pregnancy. So far I'm down 1 pound from my pre-pregnancy weight, even though I've definitely gotten bigger. Baby seems to be displacing fat. I'm currently at 205 lbs. I'm 5'9'' - I look overweight, but not obese by any means. I'm very curvy and very muscular, so I carry my weight pretty well. I could still stand to lose 40 lbs though.

With my first pregnancy I started out at 217 lbs, and ended at 210! The day after my daughter was born I weighed 190 or so. My midwife wasn't concerned since she knew I was eating healthy and I had a very healthy pregnancy and an 8 lb baby. So I just try not to worry about the weight too much.

Nothing yet. Surprising considering how my belly has grown.

None, but I haven't lost either so that's better than last time (I lost way too much weight in the 1st tri with M!) I mostly have my appetite back and have my DD weaned at last, so I hope I start gaining soon! I am a skinny minny to begin with and I worry more about underweight than overweight.

I'm down about 2 lbs but my belly is big with baby! DH is worried I'm not eating enough for the twins but I eat when I'm hungry and stop when I'm full. I'm not worried I will gain plenty through this pregnancy.
