Weight gain at 4 weeks!!!


How can I have gained over 5 pounds at only 4 weeks pregnant?! Has this happened to anyone else or am I just doomed? Big frown.

I gained 5 as well, and I have been sick and not hardly eating although I do feel bloated. Need to get a bigger cup size tomorrow so maybe thats it. My rings are still loose though so it can't be water. I was so suprised since with my first I was losing weight in the beggining and rings and shoes were tight in the fifth week from the water!

This is SO pleasant to consider but I have also been constipated so maybe I have a baby cooking on both ends and that is where the five pounds came from.

weight gain this early is mostly from bowels (constipation) and water weight. It will go down. Sometimes weight gain early on happens to women who are quite tiny and dont have a lot of extra weight on the belly. With my first I gained right away, with this one I am close to 13 weeks and haven't gained a thing. Every women and every pregnancy is different. You are NOT doomed for gaining (to original poster)...it will all even out in the end.

I was wondering about that because with my first I was overweight at conception and lost weight until the second trimester (but gained LOTS of water) and this time I am pretty small and have to be careful sometimes to not lose weight so that would make sense...and they do say smaller women need to gain more during pregnancy. It is weird this time around, I can already feel how hard my uterus is getting. My mom thinks that is why I can feel so much ligament pain already but I think she's nuts
