Has anyone had difficulties gaining weight during pregnancy?

I am just about 35 weeks pregnant, and I have yet to gain any weight. I am still currently 31 lbs less then I was when I first found out. Given I am not a petite girl, and I imagine some of this weight loss is healthy, however, I am worried the baby might be small or lacking everything it needs at this point if I keep losing. I may just need reassurance, so Im hoping someone else has been in this position before.

  • 24 weeks and have only gained 2 lbs. So, i sorta know. I was worryin' actually last night about that. I have an apt today and im going to discuss it with my midwife. I think if there was developmental problems then your doctors would have said something to you. Some women are diffrent though. The doctors will determine how much weight you need to gain by what size you are before pregnancy. If they feel there is or was something wrong they would of let you know instead of letting you go this far into your pregnancy.

  • I never gained any weight. it looked like I had a basket ball under my shirt. it all depends on your life style. how you eat & exersice.
