  • I actually lost weight in the beginning. Dont worry about it. As long as your dr says the baby is healthy then stop worrying!

  • First of all: you're probably not showing as much as you think you are, as pregnant women always tend to think they're bigger than they are. Second: it's still early enough for you to bnot be gaining significant amounts of weight. Your doc will tell you if you're not doing well enough, but make sure to address your concerns at your next appointment.

  • If you dont know how far along you are then you need to see a Dr

  • I was the same way! But u should go to the doctor & see if everything is okay with the baby & see how far along u are!

  • I think that is normal. I've been pregnant 3 times and it wasn't until 6 months or so before I started weighing more. I looked bigger before I gained.
