Early weight gain! :(
I am currently 8 wks and 4 days pregnant and am already up five pounds. From what I have read this isn't totally abnormal, but with my other two kids I had barely gained anything at this point! Granted, I did enjoy a little too much food last week at a baseball game and I've been trying to fight constant hunger/nausea by eating. But man! Five pounds? I've just started getting back into an exercise routine on my elliptical for 30 min a day and I'm also going to start drinking a lot more water to see if that helps hunger along with water weight. I guess I'm just discouraged because I feel like I'm in my second trimester where the weight starts to come on a little more ... but I'm only 8 weeks. (I only gained 32 and 28 with my other two babies.) I'm thinking I have just been eating too much, so I know if that's the case I can change it ... I am still so discouraged though. Any ideas or similar experiences??
