  • 5 ft even, no inches?
    96 , that is not bad
    if that is pre pregnant weight

    how far along are you?
    pre weight and weight how at how many weeks
    (i am assuming just weeks, as if you were months, you will be much bigger)

  • I was 98lbs when I got pregnant with DS and am 5'0. That's not really underweight for your height. As long as you're gaining at least 2 lbs a month then you're good. I was 120lbs when I delivered, but went home from the hospital in my size 0 jeans because it was all water and baby.

  • let your man wait on you,try to feed you
    sounds cute
    as long as he is not obessed, or really worried
    if he is worried too much, he should go to next appt and get the weight chart from nurse and see that as long as you gain weight on nice even pace, all will be fine

  • I'm 5'6 and went into my second trimester weighing 110 lbs. If your Dr. isn't concerned than neither should he.
