October club - how much have you gained??
 
I am due Oct 1, and I just hopped on the scale this morning. It looks like so far I have gained 4 pounds. I know this is reasonable, but it seems like the last week was 3 pounds. At 8 1/2 weeks, I was hoping to have only gained about 1 to 2 pounds. Oh well. How is everyone else doing? I am just happy I am not too sick to keep my food down.

Hi Karci,
I have gained 2 lbs so far. My belly is so bloated though. My jeans are too tight, so I keep the top button undone, so I always have to wear a long shirt/sweater. I know the baby is only 1/2 inch long right now, so I'm wonder why I look like I'm 5 months pregnant! I'm not complaining...I just wish I could get some clothes that fit me more comfortable. I'm too bloated for my regular clothes, too small for maternity...How are your clothes fitting?

I am about the same as you. I am really lucky because I lost 15 pounds 2 years ago, and kept it off. I have 4 pairs of dress pants that I had been meaning to get taken in. In my laziness (and cheapness) I never did, and they fit me perfectly now! Whew. My jeans are just out of the question. I have one pair that fit that were big before. A friend gave me a pair of her old maternity jeans that are good, but the girls at work don't know I am preggo, so I am scared they would see the panel on them. We wear jeans on Fridays here. I know what you mean about being in between. What do we do when we are just bloated?? People are probably whispering: I think Karcia has put on a few pounds!

I have only gained 1 pound since I found out I was pregnant, however I had surgery exactly 4 weeks before the day I concieved and had gained 15 pounds after that so maybe some of that is baby - I have no clue. My pants are a little snug but I always blamed that on the fact that I had adominal surgery. As long as baby is healthy I don't mind the extra weight. Good luck and best wishes, Bon

you girls are so cute! cant wait till my belly gets bloated with a munchkin! remember to enjoy it! My co worker is 12 weeks and so flustered with the clothes situation. My other co worker is 8 months and wears sweats everyday for this is her last baby and she refuses to buy new clothes.

Hello All...

I have only gained about 1/2 a pound but it feels like 20! I am soo bloated and gassy. Right now I could give any beer belcher a run for his money! I donít think I have ever burped or tooted before being pg..

I read somewhere that if you drink 4 oz of unsweetened cranberry juice followed by 8 oz of water it will kill the bloat in about 3 days. It must be unsweetened since the sugar will cause you to bloat even more. I am going to try it!!

I've gained 1 1/2 pounds, but my middle is definitely bigger. I have one pair of pants that I've officially put away until after baby. I'm really hoping that I can wear the rest of my clothes for at least another month.

Re: October club - how much have you gained??
 
It is tricky because a lot of my pants don't fit anymore, but I still want to wait 3 weeks to tell people - that will be my 12 week mark. I didn't gain any this week. So, 4 pounds so far. I can't wait until I get a belly! Right now, I am sure my co-workers are all thinking that I am putting on that 15 pounds I lost 2 years ago!
