I have been exercising regularly - doing weights and walking and prenatal pilates. I should be able to continue throughout my whole pregnancy. I can only gain 15 pounds, as I'm "obese." I don't see how a size 14 is obese but that is what I am, go figure. I was losing weight, then I got my appetite back and have been eating in spurts and my weight went up, but now it is back to where I started. Generally, being obese, I shouldn't gain anything until the 2nd trimester, so between cravings - I'm trying to eat really clean.
My belly has been sticking out for 2 weeks now and it was all of the sudden. I will find out on Friday if they will do an ultrasound to see if I'm a month farther or have twins. Or, I could just be having a normal 2nd pregnancy as they say your 2nd one shows quicker. The illustration of a blowing up a balloon helps understand this. When a balloon has already been inflated once, it will inflate quicker the 2nd time. That is much like the uterus and mine inflated HUGE with my first lol! I gained 60 pounds with her but I do NOT plan on doing that this time for sure!
Today marks the end of my 6th week, I hope to update in the future and hopefully post if I have the energy.
