  • for some it is normal .. some people gain between 15 and 20 lbs the whole pregnancy some more .. maybe your baby wants to hit you all at once lol

  • I look like I have gained 30 lbs but I have only gained one as well. I am 18 weeks 3 days. I am eating super healthy this pregnancy and the baby is growing great and has a strong heart beat. I think you're just fine. Normal for you is not normal for someone else though. The average person gaines 20-25lbs per pregnancy...but you may only gain 10 and that is okay as long as you're eating healthy:)

  • i didnt gain any weight until 17 weeks, and it was only 3 lbs. im sure ive gained more since then, im 20 weeks now. i was wondering if it was normal too, but the baby looks and sounds healthy so its nothing to worry about.

  • I am 17 weeks as well and I lost 2 lbs since my last I am 2 pounds from where I started from months ago. My doc was not worried, he said some dont gain any and some gain lots.

  • Sounds aweful but I am pregnant with twins (almost 31 weeks) and I have only gained like 20 lbs. No one even will believe me that there are two there. But it is all in my belly!
