  • I know a few people who only gained a little and the babies were fine. My sister for example lost a few pounds in the beginning and when she delivered she only weighed 7 1/2 lbs more than when she got pregnant! The baby weighe 9lbs 9oz!!!

  • I was sick a lot of my pregnancy, I had pneumonia 3 times, and only weighed 121 the day my son was born. I often weighed that not pregnant! He was born at 36 weeks and weighed 6 pounds 3 ounces! I never even wore maternity clothes.

    You may gain a lot the last weeks. Thats normal.
