Weight Gain

Alright April mommies! What's the scale say?? I only ask because with my son (five years ago) I gained a total of 33 pounds and now I'm 22 weeks with a little girl and have gained 12 pounds total. Curious where everyone else stands! :)

Im 23wks in the morning. I actually lost 7lbs at first, and have gained 4lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight. So I was 164, dropped down to 157, and am now 168... after lunch lol

21+1, first time mom, I was 158 pre-pregnancy, and at my appt on Friday I was 168.  So, 10lbs? I was quite surprised because pre-thanksgiving I was only 164... Guess the Turkey & pie decided to linger on my thighs. Lol

I'm a first time mom- I had no morning sickness.  I have gained the lbs lol, but you really cannot even tell I'm pregnant unless I'm naked.  I think the majority of weight gain has been in my breasts lol!! I started at 133 lbs I now weigh 148.  So I've gained 14 lbs I am at 24 weeks today.

I wonder if changing your diet will help.  I haven't eaten very many sweets at all.

The scale is down 15 pounds and I am almost 26 weeks along now.  It was down more, but I am starting to regain.  First trimester was really rough.  I threw up multiple times per day and had to remind myself to eat because even the thought of food made me sick.  Just had a big piece of fudge and glass of milk, so clearly over it ;)  My clothes don't fit right and I am showing big time.  I gained a lot with my two previous pregnancies.  Since I am already round, I hope to deliver no heavier than my pre-pregnancy weight.
