    Congratulations @4legsRbetterthan2 he is beautiful! And well done on pushing out a nearly 10 lb baby without any help! That's amazing! Don't worry about the weight, you'll be retaining a lot of fluid and your uterus needs time to shrink so it'll be off in the next few weeks. Enjoy this time with your new cutie pie x

    @phreekles you are so right. I thought for sure my feet couldn't swell anymore than they did during pregnany, but boy was I in for a surprise. I got brave enough to get on the scale again this morning and was another 3 lbs down, so I am working my way there even if it is a little slower than I would like. Can't wait for the day when my feet dont feel like they are going to pop when I walk around!

    It's surprising how long it takes! During my first pregnancy I went engagement ring shopping shortly after the birth and had to get the ring I wanted resized (bigger as my fingers were so swollen) when I got the ring back a few weeks later it was sliding off my finger! In hindsight I should have waited a while before getting it resized but the nice thing is that I've been able to wear my ring the whole of this pregnancy so far :smile:

    @4legsRbetterthan2 congratulations on your adorable boy!
    Don't worry about the weight loss. Mine stayed for a little bit to as my body freaked out but then started dropping off pretty easily. Just keep drinking lots of water and eating well for now :)

    Ugh, so much weight gain recently. I'm trying to reel it in, but having issues! Need to be better about just healthy eating when hungry. And actually working out - something I haven't done since my foot injury. Ugh.

    I am so glad that I found this. I am 7 weeks, had gained ~8 lbs as of last Friday, and have been pretty stressed about it.

    Morning sickness has been miserable for the past two weeks so I've pretty much given myself a pass to eat anything I want as long as I can keep it down...

    It's really a relief to see such a variety of weight gains from other people and to know that several of you gained this much or more during your pregnancies, had healthy babies, and were able to lose the weight after.

    Age: 29
    2nd Pregnancy
    Start weight: 203.6
    Gain goal: 20-25 lb

    Week 4- Aug 28/17: 206.2 (+2.6/+2.6)
    Week 5- Sept 4/17- 205.8 (-0.4/+2.2)
    Week 6- Sept 11/17- 204.8 (-1.0/+1.2)
    Week 7- Sept 18/17- 207.4 (+2.6/+3.8)
    Week 8- Sept 25/17 - 206.8 (-0.6/+3.2)
    Week 9- Oct 2/17 -208 (+1.2/+4.4)

    This whole month Ive eaten much worse than I typically do due to nausea! I had so many aversions that only junk food and carbs appealed. Luckily this week Ive been much better and able to eat vegetables and some of my more normal meals again, so Im hoping that'll slow the gaining. Last pregnancy with my son I gained 30 lbs, and also started off that pregnancy a lot heavier than I am this time. So my goal this time is to gain 20-25 lbs and to keep active as close to the end as possible.
