Have you all gained much weight yet? My doctor told me I should expect to gain about 40 pounds total...but so far I've only gained 1 pound. I've gone up a whole bra size, and have a bit of a bump, but the rest of me has gotten slightly smaller. I can still fit in all my pre-pregnancy clothes (although the pants are uncomfortably tight around the waist.)

It's weird, because before I was pregnant, if I wasn't dieting I was gaining weight. I have just NEVER been able to maintain my weight. Now I'm eating all I want and I'm not gaining anything.

Now, I'm not TOO worried, because I have ample fat reserves , but I worry that my babies will be small if I can't gain enough weight.

I have only gained 1 pound. My midwife says she wants me to gain 10 more pounds by 20 weeks. That's over a pound a week! I'm not sure how I'll do, but she said it should just start happening due to water weight and if I eat when I'm hungry. I've gained about 3 inches around my middle (or at least, that's the gap I have in front when I try to button my pre-pregnancy work pants). Midwife said she'd like to see me gain 20-25 pounds total for the pregnancy, which seems a bit low for me? She said I'll lose 12 pounds when I have the baby, 12 pounds about a week or so after baby (water weight), and breastfeeding should lose even more for me. If that's correct, it sounds like I'll end up skinnier than I started out as! ha!

I so need to go bra shopping, hating wire ones now.


Dragon - i have gained about 3 kilo so far, 6.6lbs? Think I am going to be massiiiive!!!



Breast feeding is fab for weight loss, I lost all my baby weight with my first in 3 months. It went straight from me back to baby! Doctor said the baby's weight gain in the first 3 months was amazing!

Good Morning, All!

Actually, it feels like a craptastic morning to me, but I'm trying to be positive. (Explanation to come in what is sure to be a lovely ranting post). I've gained 2lbs and I was told 25-30 would be considered perfect for me.

Let's start with Saturday night... Old army buddy with wife and new baby come to town and stay at mutual friend's house. We go over to visit. Go to dinner. I am tired and have had a headache since I woke up. So at 10 after forcing myself to stay for an extra hour to be "social" I leave my DH and his motorcycle with the promise that he will be following me home soon. So I hop in bed and promptly pass out until 12:30. I send a text: "Are you still visiting or do I need to come pull you out of a ditch?" He was visiting and said he would be leaving soon. At around 1 I begin to feel vaguely pukey so I texted him and asked him to come home as I feel like I'm going to throw up and my headache has turned into a migraine. "Okay, soon" is the response I get.
So about 5 minutes later I am (TMI!) puking through my nose and mouth, trying not to aspirate on vomit and crying hysterically. I text him again. No response. Finally 30 minutes later I send: "30 minutes is not soon to a pregnant woman who is puking." Finally at 2am he shows up as I am still hugging the toilet. He forget his housekey in the car so I had to quickly rush to the door and back. I think he finally got it as I continued to throw up water for another 45 minutes. We're good now, but it really ticked me off!

Fast forward (I told you this was going to be long!). Yesterday my MIL calls during nap time to tell us that one of DH's nephew's needs $100 in order to get up to the college that he received a scholarship to and could we please send it. GAH! We are not made of money and are trying to save for the baby. I love his folks, but (and he refuses to bring it up or collect) they owe us around $1200 that is only since we have been married (9/21/10). Because we both have decent jobs they believe we have unlimited cash. I told DH that we would send $25 and nephew could go bum off his 4 other aunts and uncles for the rest.

This morning we have had thunderstorms. This means DH cannot ride the motorcycle to work (we have 1 car) so I must drive him. Seeing as school just started Monday traffic is HORRIBLE! So we get to his work in plenty of time and then he realizes that he has left his keys at home. So instead of arriving to work early (ie 7:45-8) I rolled in around 8:45 and was immediately beset with stupid requests and idiotic phone calls.

Either my tolerance for stupid has completely disappeared or people are just honestly becoming more dumb by the minute. I feel like a basket case. Please tell me I'm not completely loosing my mind and all by myself...

Love the bump helena!!

Kellen---I'm sorry things are so frustrating right now. I would have been super upset at my DH if he did that to me and I needed him home.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one who is getting bouts of nausea and vomiting still. Most of the time, I feel good, but sometimes it just hits me!

Kellen- I would have been super pissed, too, if I were in your shoes! And I would tie the keys to DH's shoelaces lol.

The whole week I was in NY visiting, I didn't feel sick at all. As soon as I got home, it started right back up again. What the heck? Is it all psychological? Something I'm eating/not eating? Argh! I hate feeling nauseated, and I was so happy it was going away.

I had a terrible dream last night that I decided to terminate my pregnancy, and then felt horribly guilty and totally regretted it...but it turned out that it didn't work and I was not only still pregnant, but I had triplets! I was so relieved when I woke up.

Thanks for the support everyone! I am glad that I'm not the only one who has random bouts of nausea. And I'm really not all that frustrated most of the time, but when it hit it hits hard!

And, Helena, that is an adorable bump. Tomorrow (14w) I am going to have DH take another bump picture. We did one at 8 weeks. Now we will be able to compare. We also have a midwife appt tomorrow so we'll see how much I've really gained... DH has gained 10lbs.

Listeria Threat!


Just read this article and wanted to share... In case anyone was tempted to eat fruit from McDonald's.

Ooh i shall be avoiding that - thanks for the link! Luckily mcD makes me feel sick now, since I wanted nothing more than McDs for the first 2 months!

Kellen, sorry you are having such a crap time. It's so awful when all the naff things come at once. And why do men not get in at the time they say?? I think they must be genetically programmed to be late. Otherwise, if they were super clever they would add a couple of hours to their planned return time, say they will be in at 2am when realistically they will be in at midnight, so we think they have been early and they would get extra gold stars!?

Oh no I am the only one gaining big weight here....*helena sulks off to eat more*

Off camping tomorrow for 3 nights. Really looking forward to it apart from the needing to pee all night. Will take a potty!
