Any other plus size mommas have trouble gaining weight for pregnancy?
I'm not supposed to gain more than 20lbs anyway because of my pre-pregnancy size, but so far all I've done is lose weight. That would be a great thing if I weren't pregnant! I'm 17 weeks and I have lost about 25lbs. I lost over six pounds between my last visit (three weeks ago) and my visit this week. I'm eating and I'm not having morning sickness anymore but my allergies have been terrible and I can't eat much at one time. Plus I have a toddler that likes to steal my snacks.
I lost weight during my first trimester with my son but I had started gaining by the the second trimester. This time I'm into my first trimester and still going down. My doctor isn't worried yet but he said I should be either gaining or at the least maintaining by now. So far baby is measuring fine but I'm fatigued all the time. I don't think I'm getting any of the nutrients here!
