im 32 weeks and throughout most of my pregnancy i havent been able to eat alot. i eat like one meal a day and snack sometimes. i have a gall bladder problem so i cant even have much fattening food...all bland things like grilled chicken and such. i gained one pound a month until my fifth or sixth months where ive continued to gain just 2 pounds a month. 10 total so far. will my baby be small?

  • theres no way of telling. it may be smaller, but that isnt necessarily a bad thing. its not like your unhealthy and starving yourself. youre only supposed to gain 15-25 pounds anyway. as long as your doctor has said that the baby is growing fine then youll be all good! my sister inlaw was the same way as you, she only gained 12 pounds her pregnancy and she still had an 8 lbs baby, so ya never know

  • Not necessarily. I have a friend who gained 9lbs her whole pregnancy and had a 7.5 lb baby.
