  • I wasn't small by any stretch of the imagination when I got pregant with my son. I gained 7 lbs with him. Six weeks later, I have lost a total of 26 lbs. It worked out pretty good for this ol' girl!

  • I was not small either. I didnt start to gain till I was about 32 weeks. (I think that appointment was the first one where I gained my first pregnancy pound). By the time I had her at 38 week, I had gain a total of 18.5 pounds (8lbs 11oz of that being her). I wouldnt worry if you have not gained anything yet as long as the baby seems to be doing good.

  • Oh this is very normal. In total I gained 35 pounds which is said that the normal weight to gain is between 25-35 pounds. Eat healthy because what ever your eating is what your giving your baby. You may want to get a pyramid of pregnancy, that way you can learn what to eat the most. :)
