  • How far along are you and how much have you gained

    Just looking big is not an indicator of gaining too much. We all feel like Shamoo by the end. LOL

  • Everyone's body is different. I wouldn't worry about it right now, after pregnancy you can diet and exercise to lose the extra weight. I kept my weight normal my whole pregnancy until the 3rd trimester when I had to be on steriod treatment and the steriods made me gain one to two pounds a week. Don't stress about your weight.

  • LOL. I would not worry about it at all. That is a little above average for weight gain but if you are concerned you can try walking each day and making sure your snacks are good calories like fruit and fresh veggies to help even out your weight gain.

    Otherwise I would not worry too much.

  • You should not have gained that much this early. Eat 5 small meals a days and snack, but make sure everything your eating is healthy, and limit your salt intake.

  • people say crap like that all the time because they don't even think about how it would make the mama feel.
    with summer coming on I recommend swimming for exercise. it really is relaxing and its not too much impact on your body. plus it helps you cool down too :)

  • oh yeah, I forgot, make sure you drink a lot of water and limit your salt... you retain more water when you're pregnant... a lot of that weight can be water weight
