    :cry:
    So I'd only put on about 2 lbs at 10wks...then another 2 by 13wks...and I weighed myself this morning and I've put on another 4lbs!!! I feel like I'm really eating a lot better a few snacks here and there, but nothing worse than normal. I know it's just weight and I'm making a baby, but man it's so hard to deal with. I put on 50lbs last time and I was really hoping I wouldn't this time. My sister who's a size 0 put on about 45lbs in both pregnancies so I'm thinking maybe we just get big. She hardly eats anything.
    Rambling...just sad right now. :cry:
    Wish I didn't have to get so big!

    wow Id be jumping for joy if Id only put on 4lb thats hardly anything. Most of us girls in curvy ladies had put on 10-14lb by 13 weeks!

    I gained 8lbs by 10 weeks! And that was eating much less due to m/s. Now I have put on another 3-4lbs and I'm eating well - nothing outrageous and still exercise. Sometimes there's not much you can do - I figure my body is taking over and doing what is best for bubs! We can always lose it after LO! :hugs:

    You've got 2 in there so hunny pack on the pounds!! Your babies need to get big and healthy as most twins are born a couple weeks early. As for everyone else, those pounds will fall off!!! Most of it is probably extra blood volume and water weight. I hadn't gained anything up to 12 weeks. I went back to my 16 week app't and I gained 8 lbs in one month!! Then i went to my 20 week (actually 19 +4) and I actually lost a pound. I think water fluctuates in your body so much it's hard to tell what kind of weight you're putting on. Don't feel bad ladies we will lose it when babies are born.

    Eventually...but it certainly didn't fly off with me! I lost 30lbs within a week or so (only 6lbs 1oz of baby! lol). And the other 20lbs took awhile...:shrug: oh well. I guess with 2 kids I won't have much time to eat! haha...so hopefully will lose a bit quicker this time!
