Having a 5 year old, and a 9 months. old I started at 115lbs this go around not getting the last 5 off from the last pregnancy. I'm roughly 8 wks already 120 and I look 4 months pregnant! my goodness. anyone else in fear they are getting too big too fast and are going to have trouble getting back to a flat stomach after baby? this will definitely be my last going at this rate.
Re: 3rd baby and I'm already a whale...anyone else?
OP, if you're really worried about your weight gain, talk to your doctor. 5 pounds during first tri is not uncommon, and since this is your 3 (and it is relatively soon after your 2nd), your stomach muscles already know what to do and have started loosening up earlier than before, which makes you look pregnant. It's very common for women to show earlier in subsequent pregnancies, especially if they are close together.

You're not alone in feeling like you've gained too much at the beginning. Especially when there's so much advice out there on how much to gain and at what rate.
