I am now 19wks 1 day pregnant, 5'1 and weight 112,,but pre-2nd pregnancy(current one) I was 108-110,,then went down to 105-107,,,after first trimester I went up to 108, 2 weeks ago I was 110 and today I was 112 but weighed with a puffy jacket on. I know I am pregnant and need to gain weight but I am scared to start gaining too fast this 2nd half of pregnancy and to get the stretchies I didn't get after my first daughter who is now one. Please don't bash I am perfectly aware I am pregnant but my self esteem is suffering since I am scared to gain to fast now ....BTW I was 102 before getting pregnant 1st time,,,was 131 day I got induced. So I did go down before getting pregnant but neVer lost the 6additional lbs,,,so I am getting scared now I will end up even bigger. Is my weight gain normal up to know I doo't want to gain too much too quick.
Hey don't worry about it with multiple children you can either gain or loose weight. Not every pregnancy is the same. I haven't gained as much with this baby as my first but I am still bigger. Boys a re bigger than girls and multiple children have a tendency to be bigger too! Yikes right? But look gain healthy weight and walk as much as you can. I have only gained 18 lbs total this whole pregnancy but my boy is measuring 2 weeks larger than that of someone with my weight gain and where I am at weekly. Holy crap right!!! Just be prepared because I had it set in my mind that this is easy cause I've done it before WRONG! It is completely different and the same in some ways but don't put too much expectations in certain things like weight gain. That baby will gain as much as they want weather or not you want them too GOOD LUCK!
Lol we could switch places?! with my first boy i gained 13 lbs.. lost him at 5 1/2 months.. lost some of the weight.. got pregnant weighing 126 lbs.. gained 26 lbs total.. lost ALL the weight & got down to 116 lbs.. then DH passed away, i moved home..had a child to take care of..almost lost the house i was trying to get...gained 12 lbs from the stress... went out for drinks two freaking nights with a old HS buddy & bam... pregnant... to say the least it was unexpected & at the time not at all wanted.. BUT, here i am.. i've gained 5 lbs this pregnancy, plus the 12 from stress.. im at 135 lbs.. =/ i am the same height as you & super self conscience.. but i know that i can lose the weight & so i'm not really worried. try not to stress, at 112 lbs you're still VERY tiny... i miss those days!!
I was terrified what a second pregnancy would do to my body, although my first I gained 32lbs and didn't get a single stretch mark and lost 10 extra pounds after I had my daughter so I started out in better shape this pregnancy and that was with diet and working out. I had more muscle this time around plus I've been eating a lot better with this pregnancy I am 38 weeks now and I am a lot smaller than I was with my first and I still haven't gotten stretch marks. I gained most of my weight n my second trimester with both pregnancies. And it's slowed now that I'm in the third. Just make sure to drink lots of water and eat healthy and walking does help a lot too, I walk a lot at my work. Each pregnancy is definitely different an deveryone says you get bigger with each child but I think it really depends on the person.
