  • yeah thats another thing im worried about. i only gained about five or so pounds. i think i lost some in the beginning due to morning sickness but no one seems to be worried and i feel her move all the time so i guess its okay?

  • I was the same way with my pregnancy. My doctor told me to drink milk shakes, Carnation Instant Breakfast need all the calories you can get.

  • just try to eat fruits and vegetables and healthy food even if it doesnt sound good cuz ur baby needs nutrients more than u fattening up. a lot of times i dont want to eat but u just have to or u could have a low birth weight baby or malnourished.. my doctor never comments on my weight either, u have to bring it up and ask if ur concerned

  • Gotta agree with smoothies :) about a cup of orange juice (squeeze the juice yourself if you don't want the added sugar), a handfull of strawberries, a bananna, 1/4 cup of vanilla yogurt & a handfull of ice, serve in a margarita glass just for the fun of it. This makes good popcicles too. You get all the good fruit without having to eat all of it.
