2nd pregnancy- when did you start gaining weight? HamHam 18 kids; India 3485 posts

I know every pregnancy is different, but thought I'd ask anyways.
I'm into my 17th week with my 2nd pregnancy. I had a really stressful job for the first 13 weeks and lost about 8-10 lbs. I haven't lost any more weight, but also haven't gained any.



When did you start gaining weight in your second pregnancy?

it's not on purpose either, i just don't really gain weight, ever. my doctor isn't concerned though, she just said we can fatten up baby on the outside.

Wow! Ok then I won't worry much. I was always under the impression you gain weight and start showing much sooner with the 2nd pregnancy.

Awww, I didn't know you were expecting again! That's awesome, congratulations! As for the actual topic? I only birthed one of these munchkins, so I have nothing to contribute. With my first I didn't gain a thing until 25 weeks, then I blew up overnight it seemed like!
