  • Depending on your starting weight, weight gain is completely relative. If very overweight you can actually LOSE during a pregnancy and it be a very healthy pregnancy. If very skinny to start with and you are not gaining at all, that could be a problem. Make sure you are eating healthy! The baby will get what it needs from you!

  • That's good! Every pound you gain is hard to get off. At 8 weeks you don't really need to gain yet. Maybe 1 to 2 pounds.

  • Pretty normal to actually lose weight at that point and not gain it but remember your uterus is growing thus giving you a larger waist line.
