I've already gained 5 lbs and I'm only 9 weeks!  I know I am supossed to gain between 3-6 lbsin the first trimester.  What the heck?  Maybe bc this is my second pregnancy or am I just making excuses?

LOL!  My last pregnancy (1st pregnancy I carried full term) I gained 12 lbs in the first trimester!  I ended up gaining a total of 37lbs.  Not bad. I'm doing better so far because I'm not nearly as hungry as I was last time.  I'm 8.5 weeks and I've gained 3.5lbs.  I even started out weighing a little less than I did for my last pregnancy.

I'd say to not worry about weight gain.  If you need to eat, then eat.  Your body will let you know.  Definately don't starve yourself because you're so worried about a "standard" weight gain.  It's different for everyone and every pregnancy.

 The MS is throwing me off. I used to eat perfectly healthy almost and in these couple weeks I ate more fast food than I've ate in my entire life!!! so sad. Ive gained like 1-2 lbs, and I am (sorta) trying to not gain a single one til like 15 weeks. I was working out right before I found I was pregnant, hubby and I were training for our very first 5k run, so I was in great shape. Haven't lifted a muscle since then, unless to change positions on the couch :(
I am going to start working out at 10 weeks. I am 8 today.

I'm right there with you on not lifting a muscle.  I was still in weight loss mode from my son, but as soon as I found out I was pregnant I started spotting. I didn't dare work out.  I'm no longer spotting, but now I feel sick all the time and just want to eat junk.

I'm taking zofran and reglan bc my morning sickness and nausea was so bad.  All I want to do is eat to make myself feel better, hate that!  I've been working out everyday, whether it's walking or riding my bike, but the rest of the day I'm laying around.  I seriously need to get a grip!  LOL!

I have lost 7 lbs since I got pregnant.  I haven't been able to eat at all and I feel terrible.  I can get maybe one food meal in a day.  I am going to ask her next Monday when I go for my 8 wk appointment.  I am sure I will gain it all back.  I don't want to gain more than I did with my son which was 25 lbs

Sorry you feel so terrible.  I'm glad my doctor is letting me take anti nausea pills, I just wasn't functioning at all!  My dh is always out of town and I can't just lay in bed all day.  I gained 28 lbs with my daughter.  I'm hoping that if I continue to eat well and exercise, then I won't gain more than 25 this time around!

thanks.  i really want to walk around my neighborhood so i can get some exercise but i just feel like i am going to throw up at any minute all the time.  i feel like i am not getting my baby what he/she needs.  i have been eating fairly healthy when i do eat so i am hoping i can continue to do that when i feel better.  hoping she will give me something when i go to the doctor.

I kind of  disagree...I had bad MS with both prev and you HAVE to eat or you feel worse. And for me I could not eat veggies because they were hard to digest, UGH! so I ate crap and felt good, weird right. I would not feel bad about gaining...once you feel a bit better you will slow your eating and you will level out, prob in late tri (I even lost in my late 2 with baby 2). so I suggest make your self feel good and don't worry about weight right now... :)
