  • I lost throughout my whole pregnancy and ended up only going a total of 13 lbs. So your baby is fine! and it won't take long to lose the weight you do gain :)

  • If your doc says it okay then it probably is. I only gained 15 pounds through the entire pregnancy and most of it was in the last month or so. I was 130 starting out and 145 when I had my daughter. She was smaller but completely healthy.

  • I have never gained more than 10 lbs during my three pregnancies.
    I have always lost about 10 lbs in the beginning then regained the 10 and added a few more than 6lbs.
    My babies were big healthy boys the smallest was 8.1lbs.
    I had some extra weight before becoming pregnant, so my dr wasn't worried. My belly always measured correctly for each appointment.
    If you were 5'1 and 100lbs then it would be important that you were gaining weight.
    And really if your doc says not to worry..try not to worry.
