  • Don't you fret mamma. If you haven't gained weight yet, AND your kid is healthy, rejoice!

    I, on the other hand, started out at 140, jumped up to 190, and am only now down to 170 :( I wish I hadn't gained any weight!

  • I know a lot of women that were over weight when they got pregnant and didn't gain any weight or only gained a little. Just make sure you are eating healthy and taking your vitamins so that baby gets the nutrients it needs.

  • if your BMI was high then you might be using what you already had - if your doc doesnt think your baby is measuring too small i wouldnt worry about it - did you pass the Gestational Diabetes test? if you did thats another plus! NBD - you should be fine - and if you are still worried about it make a coment to your dr at next visit.

  • I wouldn't worry too much about it hun. I'm 13w4d and I haven't gained a pound. I stand at 5'9 - 246lbs. Before I got pregnant I was about 248lbs. Then I lost about 10lbs and gained almost all of it back, so I pretty much broke even.

    Now my sister on the other hand.. She's 29w and she's gained about 60lbs and counting. Before she got preggers she was 5-'11 - 155lbs (and on the slim side).
