I had the dreaded 9 months of morning sickness with my first and only gained 14 pounds the whole time, my son, not a day of morning sickness and I gained 60 pounds. This one I've had what I'm guessing to be average morning sickness(sick every few days til about 9 weeks now just been sick twice in the last 4 weeks) and I'm losing weight. I'm only 13W 1D so I have plenty of time to gain a few pounds. I'm not worried since I'm overweight.

I am hoping not pregnant yet, waiting to see if clomid worked...but will be starting my pregnancy whenever it happens around 220 pounds...I hate the thought of that....I will not get to look pregnant until lateer in my pregnancy since I have extra weight...and I won't look attractive anymore according to what I think.....are there any other ladies that are carrying extra weight pre pregnancy? I know I won't diet while pregnant but i don't want to gain a bunch of weight either thru out....it all depends on how many babies there are in there .....

I'm 32 weeks, and am now almost back up to my pre-pregnancy weight of 183, I have lost 14 pounds through out my pregnancy and now have almost gained it back (I'm 181 now). I'm really hoping to keep weight gain minimal, but as long as baby and I are healthy I don't really care. I didn't diet or anything, just ate right and exercised more, plus I had morning sickness till like 18 weeks.

My seems about right on. I gained 30 with my daughter. Lost it all thankfully, says I should gain 25-35. I can do that!! Hoping only 25 this time but as long as we're both healthy, I'm happy!

I gained 12 pounds with my daughter, I'm hoping to gain 20 pounds this time around. I lost 20 pounds right after delivery and became sick. This time hopefully I can gain 20 and keep some of it! I had horrible morning sickness with my daughter, hoping not to have it as bad this time around. I'm only 5 weeks 4 days.
