  • What did you start at? If you started at a normal weight then it's fine

  • Actually YOU have lost weight while your baby has gained the exact amount you lost. After s/he is born you will weigh less. It's not bad unless you were extremely underweight before you got pregnant.

  • That's perfectly fine. I only gained 16 pounds throughout the whole deal. I was back to my pre-pregnancy weight 4 days after delivering my son, and now that he's almost 9 months old, I weigh about 15 pounds less than I did pre-pregnancy. As long as you're eating healthy and your doctor says that the baby seems healthy, you're good to go! congrats on the little one! Do you know yet what you're having?
