  • Yes, don't worry. Although, it's funny that I said that, because now that you're a mom, you will become a world class worrier. There's some saying I have heard before about a mother's worry (and guilt) can't remember it, but it is all about mother worries and guilt and how we always have it. And it is sooooo true. She sounds really healthy. Smile for that. You deserve it :)

  • Pretty much all different weight gains are normal. Yours might be a chunky monkey for a few months! lol My second daughter had a huge weight gain the first month and tapered off from there. My first daughter was SKINNY and is still skinny but growing on her own little curve. Both are perfectly healthy and normal. Everything evens out eventually.
