Do I weight enough for this baby to be healthy?

okay maybe my question doesnt make a whole lot of sence. Im a petite person by nature. I eat beyond my reach and I cant seem to gain much gain I'm stepping into my 7th month and i weigh 114 pounds. I started of 110 before getting pregnant then dropped to 105 in one month then went back to 110 my 5th month and now im 114. Im extreamly worried my tummy isnt that big NOONE believes Im 7 months pregnant. My midwife doesnt seem concerned at all so that must be a good sign but I cant help but think that my baby will have difficulties because I just cant seem to gain any weigh. Did anyone else go through this?

  • My friend didn't gain much and hers was fine! If the doctor isn't concerned you are probably fine. Did they do an ultrasound and measure baby yet? If so, they would have said something to you I'm sure.

  • I've kind of done the same thing you did. I was 120 prepregnancy and now that i'm almost 8 months i'm still only 125. I lost 8 pounds in my first trimesters and gained that back. as long as you are eating healthy and staying active there shouldn't be a problem.
