I lost about 16 pounds in the run up to my wedding earlier this year so am hoping that my clothes from that time have a bit of lee-way in them because I hate shopping and the idea of buying a whole new wardrobe is depressing me!
LOL I gained 10lbs before I got pregnant, so my clothes were on the verge of being too tight or already too tight to start out with! I've only gained 1.5 or 2lbs since I got pregnant though (healthier eating than before) but my belly is already getting bigger. Short with no muscle tone, that's my secret

Wahooo! Sass you posted! Def bumpage... no bloat whatsoever you gorgeous slim chick!! And the room is lovely from what I could see... I would like to add my photo was taken in our hotel room the day after the wedding... my bedroom would never be so messy! HAHHA

Wow Miss that is hardly any weight gain! I think I put on 6lbs in first tri!

Gen... so agree.. buying maternity clothes is a PITA! All our shops apart from the local H&M are online only and as I am only 5ft 1 jeans and trousers are a problem so I like to try them on.

I'm 5'0". I bought motherhood pants in petite from Gordmans (a shop that sells motherhood low-end stuff) and they were perfect. I tried on motherhood pants at destination maternity in petite, and they were longer than regular! So annoying. I have a pair of non-petite pants in the "to hem" pile right now, along with my jeans.

Hi ladies, can I join? I'm pregnant with my first and I'm due May 9th. Had my NT scan last week and everything's just fine. Too bad we couldn't get to know the gender of the baby I'll have to wait for my 20th week scan for that.

Today is my first day in 2nd trimester and I'm so happy and relieved!

I've got you all beat! I put in 12 lbs in the first tri and will weigh myself tomorrow to see how much more has added on in the last week. Grr! I swear I'm eating at least 80% super healthy. What gives?!
Shopping for maternity clothes is hard! We have a huge Macy's nearby and the maternity section is so small and it's all thats in the whole mall! 1 motherhood maternity an hour north and the rest is online. Oh and one pea in the pod but their stuff is just too expensive! I'm also 5'3", so it does make it so hard not to try anything on.
Welcome welcome Mirchi!

Lol I ate like a horse for much of the first tri (and couldn't even stand veggies half the time -- I didn't really eat well!), and lost 4 lbs between my 8+4 appointment and my 11+4 appointment! I never had ms to the point of throwing up. I did throw up twice on 10+4 but it was just in the morning, and I was able to keep things down throughout the day, just took it easy. Surely that wouldn't explain 4 lbs! I wore the same clothes/shoes.

My home scale seems to be creeping back up a little to my pre-pregnancy weight but I haven't really changed my eating and I'm actually drinking a lot less of my calories (was drinking tons of juice & chocolate milk before!). I'll be interested to see at my 16 wk (15+4) appointment how much it's changed again!

Sass... like Never and as you know... I have eaten like a horse and most of it has been crap... (remember the Maccy D craving? Still have it!). I just cannot seem to face much healthy stuff...off my list is strawberries, chicken, cous cous, apples... all good stuff... on the bright side I have got into blueberries... not enough to counteract the crap I eat however lol.

I have a MW appt next week... the truth will out there in terms of my porkiness! Hahha

Welcome Mirch!

Girls, I completely agree! I've been craving fast food burgers and fries, but also fruits and veggies. It's all about balance, right?? I gained 6 lbs from my 9 week to my 12 week appt.

Mirchi - Welcome! I added you to the front page

Ugh! I'm jealous of ya'lls food cravings! I'm still struggling to eat and eat a decent amount at one time! We did fertility treatments to get our little one! I was looking back at my weight from the u/s at O time and I was 155lbs, our first OB appt I was 152, at 12 weeks I was 148 and b/c I went in today for some really sharp pains, I weighed in at 146! Going in the wrong direction! I just hope I'm hungry by Thanksgiving!!!

Oh and the pains were round ligament stretching...hurts like a booger too! Oh well, I just have to go at my pace from now on!
