  • everyone gains differently not everyone shows early some dont show till 8months or even at all! just because you havent gained weight doesnt mean the baby isnt gaining so unless your doctor tells you other wise everything should be just fine!

  • When I was pregnant with my oldest, I hardly gained any weight until the last 2 months. At 5 months I was still a size 7 & had only gained 5lbs. With my youngest, I started showing & gaining weight by 3 months. It's different for each pregnancy. As your Dr about it if you're really concerned.

  • i'm 28 weeks and i've gained 20 pounds

    you're definitely on the low end of the weight gain spectrum, unless you were overweight to begin with then you're fine.

    if your doctor hasn't said anything i'm sure you're fine, you're super lucky even.

  • I'm 26 weeks and I've gained a total of 11 lbs, this is my second baby. With my daughter I started to show at 7 months and once I hit 8 months I really blew up. As long as your doctor says you're measuring fine it should be alright.

  • I agree with everyone, unless your doctor says something there's nothing to worry about. I'm 28 weeks and you can defanitly tell I'm there but I haven't gained any weight yet, at least at my last appointment I was still at my prepregnancy weight.
