  • Not any at all? I lost 20 at first then had to gain it back because my doctor said that it wasn';t good so if you haven't gained any weight I don't think that's good ummm talk to you doc on this one.

  • Totally normal! Consider yourself lucky :D Especially if you've had morning sickness. According to my OB I actually lost weight from weeks 13-17. I'm 34 weeks and have only gained about ten pounds total.

  • your fine its normal. you typicaly shouldnt gain more then like 2 maybe 3 pounds your first trimester anyway. im 16weeks and have only put on 2lbs. My doctor isnt worried and i started off weighing only 122. consider yourself lucky and dont worry you will pack on the pounds here shortly.

  • How do you not gain any weight at all? Is the baby growing?

  • I think it's fine not to gain weight at first, maybe not until your second trimester. It doesnt mean anything.... lots of women dont, esp with morning sickness

  • I think the reason that your scale shows no weight gain is the weight is shifting from you to your baby, if you see what I mean. If the baby is growing normally and your doctor isn't concerned it is all good, and be happy, it means less to lose after the baby gets here!

  • Some people dont gain any. If your OB isn't concerned, I wouldnt be. At the beginning, I lost weight everywhere else and it shifted to my belly, but I didn't "gain" any... Dont worry, it will happen :).
