Does anyone else hate the point of having that weight go up a notch? I have an appt this week and will surely be over the 150 mark since I'm 150.5 without clothes at home and they weigh you fully dressed. I'm only a 4 lbs away from what I weighed when I delivered DS, but I'm barely 26 weeks!

Ours is a digital scale at the doctor's office but I still hate seeing numbers so close to what they were when I delivered Megan. I feel your pain!

I dread it so much that I only schedule my appointments first thing in the morning so they don't weigh me after eating breakfast PLUS all my clothes! And I take off my shoes everytime lol (not sure if anyone else does..)

Next appointment is monday and not sure I wanna know.. might just close my eyes. I causes me a lot of anxiety!

Yep, I hate seeing it go to that next notch. At this rate I'll be gaining almost as much as I did with DS1 :/ but like the nurse in the OB emergency department said before she gave me my steroid shot yesterday, I'm enjoying the pregnancy! Lol

Yep, it's a love/hate relationship with the scale. Lol I know I'm right where I need to be but I still hate watching the numbers go up. I feel like I have gained a lot in the past two weeks so we'll see. I think I am close to the 130 mark, which feels weird to me. I have about 15 lbs before I hit my delivery weight with London. I think I'll end up slightly heavier by the end this time. Who knows. It is strange for me because although I haven't put on much while pregnant, I put on 10 pounds over the summer to help myself get pregnant. So I started off already feeling heavier than my norm.

I lost 16 lbs(179 to 163)pounds the first trimester so at my last appointment when I was weighed MIL asked the nurse if I gained any weight and finally after 20 weeks I gained 3 lbs!! Yay I'm already 10 lbs heavier then I was when I delivered DS ( 154 lbs) but I weigh less then I did when I delivered DD (172 lbs), I'm hoping I won't go past pre pregnancy, darn it I hate the scale lol

I started at 153 and I was hoping to deliver around 175 but I seem to be creeping close to that already. Last pregnancy I was heavier and started to get scared that I would see the number 200. Yes scales are no fun...lol...unless the number is going in the opposite direction

I've hit 140, but I'm sure by my next appointment I will hit 150.

Getting weighed at the doctor is such a depressing experience! I hate it. I keep trying to remind myself that this is only temporary and it's not forever...

I hate it. It makes me so anxious. I lost a good amount of weight in the first trimester but last month I gained 7 pounds!! I could not believe I'd gained so much in such a short amount of time. I think I'm going to ask my doc/nurse not to tell me my weight unless its of concern. It stresses me out too much!

I was hoping not to hit 160 until my next appt which is still two weeks away, but without clothes I already hit that this morning on my scale at home I am up a total of 17 pounds so far.

The doctor's scales and I are so not friends at the moment. I was already overweight to begin with and unfortunately, I've already hit the 200 mark. If I go over the next tick mark then I'm pretty sure I'll cry.
