Hello all...has anyone experienced lots of weight gain in the first trimester? Im only 7+3 and i weighed myself today and was shocked to see i'd put on 10lbs!!! Im not eating any different from normal. I thought my clothes were feeling rather tight so jumped on the scales.....is it normal to put so much on so soon? Shrug

I didn't to begin with, mine piled on in the 3rd trimester. I actually lost a lot of weight in the 1st because I lost my appetite and had sickness.

you tend to lose weight in the first trimester due to sickness and loss of appetite.

iv lost so far in this pregnancy and i lost a lot with my son too.
if your worried question it with your midwife,it could be water which is nothing but in some cases excessive water can cause problems or signify something.

I'm the same as you. I'm 7+1 and have put on 7lbs so far. I definitely look 'chubby' and feel very bloated. My thighs look positively rippling! My friend suggested water retention also (she had it with both of her children). I didn't have it with my first but was physically sick then yet this time just 'feel sick' but haven't been - as yet anyway! Shocked

I'm off for an early scan tomorrow so will ask then.

I'm disappointed to be looking so big already as I'm off on hols in 3 months and wanted to look pregnant but not fat - ooooo, the vanity of it all Very Happy
