Just as everyone told me I would, I got bigger faster with her, but I feel like it's evening out now. I also gained a lot faster at the beginning which freaked me out, but that has kind of plateaued too (thankfully)! At 14 weeks I had already gained 11 pounds which seemed like a lot. The dr and nurse said it wasn't, but when I asked how much I had gained with Oliver at that point they looked it up and I had only gained TWO pounds. They said that's normal after first pregnancies to gain faster at the beginning and that as long as I'm eating healthy and staying active it will even out later on. They were right - now at almost 24 weeks I'm still at 15 pounds which is more acceptable for me :).

Only 16 weeks until we get to meet this little girl - we can't wait!!
