  • just so you know with my son I didn't gain anything umtil after 20 weeks and then i gained a total of 22 pounds. I am now 35 weeks pregnant with our daughter and still haven't gained a pound my doctor was never concerned until we got to this point and still no weight gain at all. I eat and eat but nothing not a pound. I go for my ob appt tuesday so hopefully we can figure out what is goimg on with me.

    As for you it isn't too much of a worry yet good luck and hang in there

  • Have you ever had your thyroid checked? If it's not that then what do you eat? Has the doctor suggested any type of meals for you to eat more of? Not all fat and sugary foods of course. Have you ever tried high calorie protein shakes? I drank those because I was always throwing up and couldn't keep any food down long enough.

  • I didn't gain weight with my 1st child till about 6 months....then I blew With the 2nd I gained right away, with the 3rd it took awhile and with the 4th I hardley gained any weight at all...about 17lbs. Every pregnanct is different and you are still pretty early in this one so don't worry too much at this point.
