Weight Gain

I am 27 weeks pregnant. I have only gained about 1 pound in the past month and that scares me. Shouldn't I be gaining more weight. I hardly even show. I was tiny to begin with though.

  • I wouldnt worry, honey. I have a friend who only gained 9 lbs her whole pregnancy and her baby was 7 and very healthy. And you will certainly gain more as the baby grows. Just eat healthy and make sure you are satisfied when you do and you should have nothing to worry about.

  • Just wait for the weight. Most of it is put on in the final trimester.
