6 weeks, 10 pounds extra

I am 23 years old. I am 6 weeks with my 4th child. I have already gained 10lbs, my eating habits and diet have not changed since finding out. with my earlier pregnancies I never put on this much weight this quick. I'm a little concerned, I don't know what I should do. what could be causing me to gain so.much weight so quickly!

I also put on 10 lbs by the time i was 8 weeks or so. I lost weight soon after though. It could just be bloating and water weight.

That's what I try to tell myself but I've never been one to put on weight or be able to keep it on. its just major me think that this is going to be another big baby or multiples. my first two daughters were 6lbs 6oz, & 6lbs 12oz. my last child was 8lbs 3oz. so yea I'm thinking maybe big baby. but I know of 4 sets of twins in my family and maybe its that. My next appointment isn't until the end of the.month
