  • Dont worry about it. I am 5ft 4in and was 125 when I got pregnant. I was 142 when I delivered and 120 when I left the hospital.

  • You'll gain your most amount in the last month. Don't freak if you gain 5 pounds or more the last month and don't diet!! Your baby weight will just fall off you with your natural metabolism after the baby is born.

  • I actually had the same thing happen too me.. I was 115 and 5"3 and didnt gain hardly anything for a while.. I was worried that I wasnt big enough or he wasnt, until i hit my 7th ish almost 8ish month and thats when the pounds started coming lol.. I'm 35 weeks pregnant now and i weigh 147! lol, I dont know what happened, but somehow I got bigger.. You can always ask your doc. how much weight is normal too gain for you but, as long as baby is okay, you're weight gain is okay. Just eat healthy and drink a plenty of water :)

  • Funny I am almost exactly the same as you except 5 4 and 3 lbs less and I am 28 weeks. People don't believe me when I tell them how far along I am. The doc said it was fine and I did the same with my first son. If you look at my pics of this one and my last I was super small too so don't worry about it.

  • when i was preg i was all belly didnt have much weight gain and still had a thin figure EXCEPT my belly...
    around 35-37 weeks i BLEW UP... so you may gain more around that time... you may not. as long as your baby is healthy that all that matters. im sureyour dr will say something if it isnt healthy
