I am 14 weeks and have only gained a pound...is that normal?

With my first child, I gained as soon as I saw that the test was positive...I didn't get sick either, but with this one I was puking my guts out...sorry for being graphic...but i was still able to maintain the weight.

  • From what I understand, it is completely normal for your weight to stay the same in the first trimester - especially when you are sick. Unfortunately for me, I am 13 weeks and have already gained about 5 lbs even though I was really sick for a while. I think as long as you are eating good, healthy foods at regular intervals your baby will be fine. Good luck with your new LO!!

  • With all of mine I was at a net weight loss at 14 weeks and I still ended up with an appropriate weight gain by the time the babies were born.

  • i am 33 weeks and have gain a whopping 7 lbs LOL as long as your baby is growing youll be just fine and most women dont gain any or very little in the first trimester ...just wait it'll come or your baby will eat some of your body fat which is always a gtreat mothers day present LOL
