Just curious as some of us are up to 15 weeks.. At 12 weeks (last week), I hadn't gained anything over my starting weight, but actually gained back the few pounds I'd lost. I'm back where I started. A week later, still no real weight gain..

Well I am gonna be big as hell this time around there is no getting around it; I am a shorty (5'2 )and I started at 159lbs at my first appointment so I say thats my starting point. Last weight in I was 164 so I fully expect to hit 190 this time around....its gonna get ugly. With my last two though I lost about 15lbs right after having baby and a few more the first week due to the water weight. I expect to be about 160 when its all said and done *crosses fingers*

With dd, I started at 155 and stopped at 210.. I refuse to do that this time, even tho I started 25 pounds heavier this time. I am not gaining 55 pounds again and given my weight, my dr hasn't even said a word to me about not gaining any... I'm just trying to be moderate in the quantities I eat and balance out the bad stuff with good stuff. I'm eating more healthy foods now than at any other point in my life.

Well I lost about 12 lbs in the first 3 months, but I'm just about up 2 lbs when I weighed myself today.Slowly getting better at eating and keeping it down, I pray it stays good once I get there.

I started at 139 (5'3") and lost 3lbs. I guess in the last week or so I must have gained back that 3lbs! I was back up to 139 yesterday morning. So technically I haven't gained any yet. But if I'm not careful about what I eat my weight shoots up and down pretty fast. I'm planning to not gain anymore than 25lbs this time around. With Isaac I gained 50lbs and started at 137lbs, with Gabriel I gained 60lbs and started at 145lbs. Losing that weight after the baby is born is so hard! I'm definitely making better choices this time around, so far. Hopefully I can keep it up. Both times I was pregnant with the boys I didn't have a scale, but now I do and I weigh myself almost everyday just so I can keep an eye on it. I also don't want to gain so much because I'd really love to avoid having Pre-E this time.

I've gained 10. When my MS was really bad, I had to eat every hour or so to keep from barfing and the only food I could stand was crap like pop tarts and English muffins. Considering I went grain-free and was eating really healthy foods all summer, my body was totally confused and did NOT know how to process all that junk. I gained 7 lbs almost instantly, but I've gotten a lot better now and it's slowed down. With DD I only gained 25 lbs but I was working in my feet fulltime; now my lifestyle as a SAHM is mostly sedentary. I'm not too worried about it and plan on going back to a grain free diet as soon as I'm not pregnant and starving all the time. I still have a ton of food aversions which is making a lot of veggies sound disgusting, but it gets better every day.

I started at 190 and I'm still there at 12 weeks. I attribute a lot of that to my higher starting weight and the fact that I now have a bread aversion.

My next appt is Monday, so I will find out about this month, but as of last month I had lost weight. I did this, too, with my youngest. Lost most of my first and second trimesters (I have plenty extra to spare), and then gained it all back quickly in the end.

I stand backwards on the scale...No lie. I ask them not to tell me unless there is an issue.

I become obsessive about it, and that's not healthy for anyone involved. As a matter of fact, I didn't know how much weight I gained with my son and daughter, and finally when I went back to the doctors for this baby, I asked, and it was 25 and 32 lbs each. I expect to fall within that range again, although hate that I can't run/exercise like I like to anymore. That might affect it!

I started at 124 and I am now at 128lbs, so about 4-5 lbs.
I was 129 when I weighed myself last week, but I know weight fluctuates a couple lbs depending of water weight, bloating, etc.
I do used to eat like a horse up to week 13, now I am not as hungry as I used to be in the first semester, but back then I craved fruit and veggies, now I am craving junk food ( hot wings, fried rice, SOY sauce, lol) - my blood pressure shot from 108/66 to 122/70 which I am attributing to my bad cravings the past couple weeks gotta watch that soy sauce intake LOL

I've gained 10 lbs exactly. I was up 14 this past Monday and I freaked out. With my first, I only gained 24# total and that was my goal this time around too. So I started eating healthy options Monday and Tuesday plus exercise and scale showed in my favor this am!

I'm just over 14 weeks and have gone from 154 to 163. I worked so hard to lose 25lbs a few years ago and now I'm a blimp again! And I'm high risk so my Dr advised against most exercising. But when I get down I just look at my u/s pics

Well I've lost 10 pounds from my starting weight of 135. At least I am holding steady and not losing anymore. I fully expect to start gaining soon as my nausea is finally beginning to go away.

I gained 2.5 pounds
I started at 110 and now I am 112.5

I think that is about average for the first trimester. I imagine I will gain 10 in the second tri and 10-12 in the third....

I'm up 10 lbs, depending on when I weigh myself. First thing in the morning shows about 7 lbs. I haven't been exercising, but the weather was warmer the last 2 days so I power walked with my son in his stroller. And yesterday, we got caught in the rain so I attempted to run home. I had to stop and walk a few times though. So I got lots of cardio in yesterday!
