  • First of all, you are NOT fat! You are pregnant and you have a living being growing inside you. You say you don't eat a lot, but maybe you should try eating 4 or 5 small meals throughout the day to help boost your metabolism. If you're not eating a lot your body is going to store whatever it can. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids-water especially! Good luck.
