    Hi everyone, I'm wondering when you guys all started gaining weight more noticeably. I did not suffer from morning sickness but occasionally have aversions to eating. I have been walking instead of running, and I think I've been eating the same.

    My pre-pregnancy BMI was in the upper limits of healthy, and I haven't really gained any weight yet. (It's been fluctuating between half a pound less and two pounds more.)

    I started at 114 lbs pre-pregnancy. At 8 weeks I was 110 lbs. By 13 weeks I had gotten back up plus a pound to 115 lbs. After that I started gaining normally plus some. I was 125 lbs at 19 weeks.

    If you haven't started gaining weight yet, I wouldn't worry, you have a lot of time to go and when it starts there seems to be no stopping! :wacko:

    Just keep eating normally, you aren't supposed to eat anything extra other than an extra Apple or equivalent a day anyway.

    As of my last appointment 2 weeks ago I was still the same weight as my first appointment. I think it's still the same now.

    I have yet to gain a pound. I was concerned about that but my dr said it was no big deal as baby was measuring fine and I am eating enough nutrients and protein. Also said I had a better chance of losing the weight more quickly as most of the weight gained now is pure baby and fluids vs fat on me :). I should gain about a pound a week or so from here on out and my appetite is finally picking up.

    I lost about 7 lb during week 6 - 19. But in the last two weeks have put four pounds back on again. Its really vain of me to find that depressing given that I am still below pre-pregnancy weight, and I have to keep reminding myself that this is the only time in my life when expected weight gain is a good thing! Perhaps I had better start laying off the junk food now that my weight loss during pregnancy era seems to be well and truly behind me.

    I lost between 7 and 10 lbs during the first 10 weeks and then leveled out to 6lbs below my pre-pregnancy weight. Still holding steady now...

    I've started to gain weight this past week, so 15/16 weeks. I hope it's water weight, but I've put on 5 pounds this past week.

    I'm still at pre-pregnancy weight. Some days I gain a pound or two then it's gone the next day :shrug: Going to the dr. on Wednesday but I'm sure she'll say it's okay for now. It's nice to still be able to wear all my normal clothes but I am hoping I'll get a bump soon (one people can see)!

    I gained 7lbs very quickly during weeks 5-11, but thankfully now I've plateaued and I haven't gained anything in the last two weeks. I know some of it was fat but I think a good portion was breast tissue and retained water.

    To be honest, I'm a bit jealous of all the women who don't gain or even lose weight during the first trimester. But I guess since my prepregnancy BMI was just above underweight that wasn't in the cards for me :shrug:

    I gained 2 pounds in the first 9 weeks and then by week 14 had gained 8 more.. :/ I had evened out by gaining a total of ten more pounds by the time I was 23 weeks and then at my 26 week appointment I had SOMEHOW gained 13 pounds!! ( I think it was partially water weight because I weighed myself two days ago and was exactly the same over a week later)

    I've lost almost 10 pounds since getting pregnant. I don't feel like it though because I'm still hanging on to bloat :wacko:

    At almost 15 weeks still losing!

    That's good to know from your dr about losing the weight easier if you gain it later on & it makes lots of sense too! I've not gained anything yet, i was the same last time I was pg - didn't put any weight on till around this time if not a couple of weeks later. And I did lose that weight quite quickly, I thought it was down to BFing but could be a mix of the two :flower:
