  • Not me. I didnt start gaining until around 6 months in all honesty. But I am weird. I was also back in my jeans by my 6 week post pardum visit lol.

  • Not with my first, but with this pregnancy I did. My doctor told me though, that is perfectly normal for 2nd (and later) pregnancy, because your body already knows what to do. She assured me that for most women, the weight gain evens out later on.

  • I gained quite a bit in the first three mos but it tapered off after that and steadily increased. I ate a lot of ice cream in the beginning to help soothe morning sickness/queasiness so that obviously didn't help. lol after that I got on myself to eat better and it payed off.

  • No, I always lost weight until about the 5th month at least.

  • with my first i gained about 6lbs by 8weeks...but i gained 20lbs by 12weeks....so I think it all depends on how much u eat. and the fluid gain u get with the begining of ur pregnancy.

  • for my first and my 5th children i gained a bit early on. the weight gain did taper off. oddly, for my twin pregnancy i did not gain a lot right away!
