I didn’t gain any weight when I went off BCP.

I gained 3 lbs by the time I was 10 weeks pregnant, but only 4 lbs by 17 weeks.

I don’t remember what I gained when I went off BC.

During the first couple of weeks of pregnancy though my weight fluctuated a lot.  Some days showed four pounds gained, some showed none, it just depended on the day and my bloating/appetite.

Now at a little over 10 weeks I’ve gained two to three pounds.

I gained nothing from coming off of birth control, ad lost 5 pound in my first trimester.

I gained 10 pounds or so in first trimester, but that is a bit unusual.  When I was 4 days late, I doubt I had gained anything yet.  I gained because i felt so much nausea but felt better if I ate. (Good news is that I didn’t keep gaining in 2nd trimester so much so I’m evening out into the ‘normal’ zone). 

I suspect maybe other lifestyle changes made you gain, or maybe goign off the pill moreso than the being in early pregnancy.  Some people gain or lose going off the pill.

@cherrycoke: Thanks!  I think the weight fluctuations were from different levels of bloating every day.  I was also much hungrier earlier in pregnancy but around seven weeks I started to have less and less of an appetite.

I don’t think I gained anything when I went off BC, but I did get super bloated for a while with PMS.  The scale stayed fairly consistent but I felt as though my belly looked about 10 lbs heavier!  The bloating sorted itself out after a month or two and then I would only get bloating for a week or so before AF.

Now, at nearly 14 weeks pregnant, I still haven’t gained any weight.  Every now and then the scale will go up by 2 lbs but it drops back down the next day or so.

I put on between 10-15 pounds after I went off BC. I’m 6.5 weeks pregnant now, and haven’t yet put on any weight (I’ve actually lost 3 lbs because food is way not appealing).

I gained 12 lbs in about 3 weeks after coming off of birth control. I even started a thread on here because it was really upsetting. Come to find out, there are a bunch a ladies who throw on the lbs after getting off. The weight gain slowed and then stopped once I got pregnant 3 months later. At 22 weeks, I’ve gained just under 5 lbs, but am still up the 12 lbs from the BC. I prefer to be around 125 (not pregnant), but I’m at 142 now.
