  • I was 40 weeks exactly. I didn't gain much weight either but I'm an average sized person to begin with so that was never a concern.

  • I am only 5'1" tall and I carried my dd to the day before her due date and went into labor naturally. Just eat healthy and let your body take car of the rest. How many wks are you now?

  • I carried until 38 weeks and 4 days, which was still considered full term. I don't consider myself small (I'm 5'11") but some would consider me thin to average. I wouldn't worry too much, it's not good for you or the baby! Just relax in knowing that you are going to be a good mother and take care of yourself.

  • I delivered at 37 weeks. I was enduced. I was 120 pounds at 6 feet before I was pregnant and gained about 40 pounds. I would say if the drs are worried about your size you will have a c-section. I just had a girl friend that had a c-section because she was too tiny to have the baby naturally.
