  • I gained 11 pounds with my first pregnancy and 9 with my second. I didn't get very big, but was all belly. If your doctors aren't concerned, I wouldn't be either. Some people just don't get very big.

  • Everyone shows and gains different . Even with every pregnancy. If your Dr is not concerned then don't worry.

  • I dont gain much with my babies either. I NEVER gain anywhere near the "normal" 25-35 lbs. I'm almost 6 months right now and i've gained like, 4 lbs. I work hard though. I feed and water 6 horses and other random animals, so it's like an hour long cardio/ab workout twice a day, not to mention the two little mean kids i chase around all day. Hard to gain much weight that way! Lol! As long as the baby is growing fine, and i'm still healthy, the doctor couldn't care less how much weight i gain honestly. All he cares is that we're healthy!

  • I never gained more than 22 lbs, and with my 5th I only gained 12 lbs (pre pregnancy weight between 110-120 with each). My babies all came out healthy and happy!

  • If your doctor says everything is fine with the baby then you are fine.

  • It is very normal. With dd, I gained about 10 pounds, I lost weight when I was pregnant with her so I didn't do much gaining. However with this one (I am almost 7 months), I look huge! It sucks so bad, because I thought it would be like dd and I wouldn't hardly look pregnant and have all that weight to carry.
