Anyone else having ths problem?

So I'm 21+6 and it seems like everyday I am putting on weight. So far honestly I have gained almost 25 pounds and I feel like I am getting bigger by the minute. I am also having thyroid issues and I feel like my metabolism is not functioning whatsoever. I couldn't even get into my stretchy cargo pants today and I feel like a blob! I know some of you lovely ladies are having the opposite problem with morning sickness & so on, but is food just sticking on anybody else?

It is to me. I'm not eating anymore than i usually do and last time i weighed i had gained 8 lbs. that was at 11 weeks 0_o. I go to the dr next week at 15 weeks and I'm terrified to get on the scales! Seems like I've gained a lb a day!

Make sure you r exercising 30 mins a day. They don't call it labor for no reason. You have to be ready for that day. If you can't so a 30 minute walk hours of labor will be almost impossible.

@mckee I love walking.. could come up with a million excuses not too, but at the end of the day, it is very refreshing. I took a walk today, slow,  but I definately miss working up a sweat & getting the endorphin high I used to get when I could really get going..

Walking is my best friend right now. Every morning after the kids get on the bus me and my two rottweilers hit the streets. They need the exercise I need it for balancing my brain.

I have stacked on around the 30 pound mark and I'm 31+2 now. But at my last appt last week with my doctor, my weight gain seems to have slowed down a bit. He said thats normal. There isn't much we can do. All our bodies react different to pregnancy. Just try not to stress about it too much :))
