OK why am I having so much trouble sleeping now?

I'm 8 wks 2days and my last several pregnancies I stayed awake through the night and was a night owl. Now I'm suddenly a morning person. And I've already gained 11 lbs "weird huh" last pregnancies I barely gained 15-20 by the end. This is so weird!!

  • Well all pregnancies are different, and the weight gain depends on how you eat. I gained 25lbs with the 1st 2 kids. and 26lbs w/my 3rd. I only had trouble loosing weight with the 3rd baby, but I was older when I had her than the other 2. I ate a lot of fruit all the time,no junk food, I refused to gain a lot of weight and end up not being able to loose it. Good Luck

  • Well it happens. I gained a lot of weight with both pregnancies. You shouldn't diet, unless your doc is worried. Increase your fluid intake, limit your sodium and see what happens. It also might just slow down in your 2nd or 3rd trimester :)
