13 Weeks Today

First off, thanks all for your encouraging comments on my last post. I am 85% not as freaked out as a was. I'm trying to chalk the whole thing up to a learning experience and just put it out of my mind and I'm *almost* there, not quite. I'm still really mad at myself about The Turkey Sandwich Incident.

I love being pregnant. LOVE. IT. Despite my bouts of worry, I am the happiest I've been in my entire life. Right now.

I love this kid so much already.

In other news, I can't seem to put on any weight. I haven't gained an ounce during my pregnancy so far, and in fact, I think I've even lost weight. It's getting a bit discouraging because it's the one time in my life I actually want to see the numbers on the scale go up! Plus, I am eating like it's going out of style. I probably have at least 6 meals a day. Granted, it's all healthy stuff.

This kid must be really speeding up my metabolism. I don't know how much more food I can fit into the day!

All the books say I should have gained 5 pounds so far. Has anyone else heard of this happening?

Yesterday, D said I should just start eating whole sticks of butter. I laughed at the time, but maybe he's onto something?

Ok, I finally stopped laughing long enough to leave a comment. I can *just picture* you eating a whole stick of butter. HAHAHAHAHAHA. Don't worry about the weight thing...I've had several friends that didn't gain an ounce until they were almost at the halfway point! But sure enough...once they started gaining, they not only caught up but even put on a few extra pounds!

Congrats on 13 weeks! YAHOO!

I didn't gain ( in fact i lost 15 lbs from the 2 line pee stick til about 12 weeks) then i put 6 but on between 14-20 weeks.

So go you! You are doing a fantastic job of eating the right things. Don't you even worry about that

I have 2 friends who weighed LESS at the birth of their children than they weighed at the start of the pregnancy. So yeah.. it happens a lot. :)

Plenty of women don't gain weight,and a lot of fat women lose weight.

You're perfectly normal in this regard, too.

Yes, don't sweat the weight thing. I bet it you were losing rapidly, you'd have something to worry about. Otherwise take the numbers and run! You know that little scrappy-poo is healthy and that is all that really matters.

Butter!! LOL

I wouldn't worry about not gaining weight. To be honest, I'm a bit jealous. If I could not be gaining weight quite so fast it would be good. But alas, our bodies never do exactly what we want them to do, right?

Congrats on 13 weeks! :)

Hi! Congrats on your 13w milestone. Don't worry about the weight gain thing. I was pretty thin when my FET cycle worked (5'8" and 126 lbs) and SO SICK during the first trimester (twins) that I didn't start to gain weight until the very end of it. Now I am 19 weeks and I have gained 23 lbs. Don't worry, it will catch up with you! Just keep doing what you are doing. You are right, your metabolism is crazy right now. My peri wants me to gain 45 lbs and I thought that was going to be impossible, now here I am getting huge. So, it will happen! Good luck.
