By the end of my first trimester i gained 5 lbs. Before i was pregnant i was considered overweight n i had actually made a vow to myself to try n start loosing weight….i even joined a gym. It seemed all the weight was packed in my tummy, i looked like i had a baby bump months before i even got pregnant…needless to say, when i found out i was pregnant, the bloating kicked in and i couldnt suck in my pooch anymore so everyone thought i was way further along than i was. So it has made me a bit selfconscious about how i look and my body. But i secretly always couldnt wait to be pregnant n my tummy is getting less jiggly n more harder so im embracing it more n becoming less selfconscious bout it ๐Ÿ™‚

At the end of my first trimester I had gained about 2 pounds (according to my scale at home).  My doctor’s scale didn’t register a weight gain at my 14 week appointment though and she actually seemed a bit concerned about it.  I’ve since been traveling for a month (for both work and vacation) and am now up about 12 pounds total at 22 weeks.  I was not excited about weighing myself after my trip since I figured I had probably gained quite a bit, but at least I know my doctor won’t be concerned anymore!

I’ll be starting 2nd on tuesday and I’m the same weight as before.  Have had no appetite and the only thing that keeps the nausea away is eating but it’s such a chore… horrible cycle!  I think it’s getting better and am looking forward to the 2 TM!

I’m gonna post to make the weight gainers feel better!  I gained about 10 during the first trimester.  Granted, I was carrying multiples for most of that time, but I gained weight quickly.  It’s kind of leveled off the last few weeks (I’m 16 now).  I was normal weight and not very tall (5’4) beforehand.

I gained about 3-4 pounds in the first tri. I’m only supposd to gain 20 total, and my home scale says I’m up about 5-6 pounds at 17 weeks. I go the doc on Monday, so I hope it stays about there. I’m not really worried about body image now (it’s pretty freeing!) – I try to eat well and exercise as much as I can manage. I’d really like to stay within the 20 pounds though.

At my appt last week I was 15 weeks and had gained 1 lb from my first appt at 6 weeks. I haven’t had any nausea and have continued to eat pretty normally! 

With that said, I expect some lbs to add on this trimester because I am getting  thicker at this point! i think I’ll have a true bump sooner rather than later!

I don’t know why everyone who posts on these threads gained like no weight or LOST weight. I feel like Weddingbee is NOT the norm where that is concerned, and no offense to my lovely fellow August mamas, but it did sorta make me feel like poop that I was the only one gaining lots of weight during my pregnancy. I was underweight when I got pregnant, and I gianed 42! lbs. at 36 weeks! Thank gosh I delivered her early – I’d have been a whale at 40 weeks. Honestly though, I wouldn’t worry about what you’re gaining or not gaining. I lost at least 80% of it in the first month after my baby was born… I think it was mostly water ๐Ÿ™‚
