Hi ladies, I’m 12 weeks pregnant with my second and am looking for some commiseration / moral support. In my first pregnancy, I didn’t gain any weight during my first trimester and felt more or less pretty good throughout. This time has been different. I’ve been super nauseous and eating a higher quantity and less healthy foods as a result (I’m usually a very healthy eater). It has been hard to stop, which is unlike me. I’ve gained like 8-9 lbs!!! (Also was just in my first vacation since the pandemic started for two weeks which didn’t help). I’m of more or less average height and build - like 5’7, 140-145 lbs. So I wasn’t coming into this underweight or anything.
Feeling really hard on myself, thus the post. Just wondering simply if anyone else is or has been in the same boat. If you’ve been there in another pregnancy, is there hope of it leveling off once I have less morning sickness and more energy in the second tri?! How did you approach? Thanks in advance!
