oh man..my LMP is only 7 weeks and my ultrasound has me measured at only 5 and i've already gained 10 pounds! i guess how i was eating/drinking through the holidays before i even knew i was pregnant certainly didn't help...but it seems to be that im eating too much or something. anyone have any ideas? i can normally eat this much and maintain my weight, im a little chubby but not really that overweight. i'm about 157 on my scale at home usually and 5'5" and carry my weight well, but now I weighed myself yesterday and i was 167!!! how do we know how much/little to eat? is it safe to start an excercise program now? also is it safe to try and maintain through this first trimester at least?

Margie- I am going to be 7 weeks monday and I visited my doctor wednesday pa__s, she weighed me and I had gained 10 pounds. I was freaked out. My legs are swollen and tight so I started drinking more water with that I have lost a pound, I guess my body had too much salt and it was causing me to swell and the water helped me to get rid of it. Just eat normally what you would eat before the pregnacy but try to stay away from eating too much junk for cause to much salt is not good.

oh yeah i never thought of the salt thing,that's good advice. same thing is happening here, but i've been eating some junk,it's hard but try to slowly ease away if that's whats happening,it could just be how our bodies are supposed to put on the weight.
