  • People need to mind their own business. Just say "I'm fine, don't worry about me". It will surely shut them up. LOL!

  • as long as you are healthy and baby is growing at the rate s/he should be, then don't listen to them.

  • As long as your babies size is OK, you should be fine. BUT, Dr.'s say that with all the extra blood & water in your system, plus the baby growing in your belly, that you should have gained about 25 lbs alone & that is not including any fat one might gain. So, when people see you so small....they worry something is wrong with the baby. Or that maybe, you don't eat enough. How tall are you? And do you eat regularly, take vitamins & do you go to the Dr. regularly? If the Dr. says the baby is fine, then just tell them so. Tell them you actually have a normal baby in there regardless how small you look.

  • I didnt really gain any weight with my girls. I started out at 115 and I think I got up to 120-125, maybe, with my first one. But as soon as I had the baby I gained a lot of weight. All my children were just fine. My Doctor was worried about my though since I am anemic. I just had to take Iron pills after I had my children. As long as the baby is gaining weight he/she should be gaining and growing the way they should, everything should be fine.

  • That happened to me, too. I'm naturally petite and so is my mother, so it's genetic, but people tried to get me to eat because they felt like I wasn't eating enough. Well, I was. I gained 26 lbs and that was all I wanted to gain and it's in the healthy range. I would get comments like, "you look good, considering..."
