1 Bump

This may sound stupid

During this pregnancy I have gained a little more than the suggested amount but during the last couple/few weeks I haven't gained any weight. I am delivering on Tuesday of next week and was wondering if it was okay that I haven't gained any in the last couple weeks. I am hoping my baby is still gaining even if I'm not.

  • Many women stop gaining, or even lose a pound or two in the last two weeks. You're fine.

  • It's pretty common for preggo women to even loose a few pounds right before the baby is born. Dont worry about it. If the Dr says your fine then take the Dr's word.

  • Actually the smaller the baby the easier the delivery, so you don't want the baby to gain any more. You will be ok mom, good luck!!!

  • It's a good theory. You should be seeing your Dr. weekly at this point, right? Is s/he concerned? If not, I wouldn't worry about it.

  • Normal. I didn't start gaining until 6 months and I actually lost weight before that. If the Dr is concerned they will let you know. just relax and enjoy your quiet time before the LO arrives. Don't forget to get lots of sleep :D

  • With all 4 of mine I stopped gaining in the last stretch of pregnancy. It's normal :)
