I have no idea if or how much I may have gained. Now just a reminder that it's actually rather common and OK to gain about 5-10 lbs within first tri. (AT least per my clinic). Most of it will be the increased blood volume in your body.
The reason I don't know is because last time I saw a doc (months before I found out) they hadn't checked my weight, just asked me about it. And since I don't ever step on a scale I said maybe 130lbs. When they checked my weight at around 8weeks it said 138lbs. I don't notice any difference in my shape except for my belly. So the pants aren't any tighter around my thighs or anything like that. so I'm thinking I was more than 130lbs and have probably gained around 3-5 lbs lol . Which has to be blood because I hardly eat anything. That's my story and I'm sticking to it LOL

I love your attitude! Hahaha @Beckyf321 we are in the same boat... I'm up 7lbs and I'm 11 weeks today :-) I am happy to have a healthy baby growing inside me - that's what matters
At my 8w appointment I was 138lbs. Yesterday, at 13 weeks I was 143lbs Oh well...
I gained 40lbs with DD but I started off underweight. Now I've started with about 13lbs more, which is average for my 5'6" frame. So hoping I can keep it at 30lbs gain max, but really I won't stress about it either. It's not like I'm going to starve myself. I also don't quite buy into the min and max amounts you should gain. At the end of the day, we are all different so this one size fits all is a bit of a BS.
How tall are you if I may ask? I wish I was 58kgs again and gaining 2 kgs is not that bad especially if you are that petite Eat what you crave. Again, if you gained about 4 lbs it's not all your body mass. It's the blood, fluid etc. .
I think this is something for all us moms to keep in mind:
1.5 lbs Placenta
7.0 lbs Maternal stores of NECESSARY fat, protein and other nutrients
7.5 lbs average baby
2 lbs breast tissue
4 lbs increased fluid volume
4 lbs increased blood volume
2 lbs uterus
2 lbs amniotic fluid
soooooo if at the end of the day we gain more than the average 30lbs it's not THAT big of a deal So what if we store more nutrients :P
There, that made me feel better LOL
