  • if your dr isnt worried then dont worry
    alot of babies are born just fine at 5 -6 lbs .

  • No need to worry. You may not notice it, but as the baby gains weight you may be losing weight, so you balance out. I lost 13 lbs to morning sickness and then only gained 18 lbs. I was worried because I was told you should gain between 25-35 lbs. But my son came out 8 lbs, 6 oz. He was perfectly fine!

  • I was the same way with dd, I lost 15 in early pregnancy, then gained 10 back, but I was overweight to begin with so baby got her weight and I lost some. She was 9lbs 5oz. Almost all of my gain.

  • if ur not gaining alot that just means that she is eating your Fat cells... U will just be one of the lucky ones to come out of pregnancy smaller than when u went in
