Why hello ladies! I feel like an elephant! Am i gaining to much?? Im 18 years old 4'11" and pre pregnancy 93lbs also very very small boned, everyone looks at me thinking im 12 by the way im built :p Im now 35 weeks pregnant and im 118lbs holy moly! I havent gotten any stretch marks on my belly (yet) but ive gotten some on my thighs and i feel like my face is three times its normal size! I was diagnosed with SVT (super ventucular tachycardia) so i cant do much exercising but im trying to not eat like a total pig! Im also allergic to all fruits, vegetables, and nuts (anything grown) so thats just the icing on the cake! Did anybody elses face gain weight during pregnancy? If so did it slim back down post pregnancy? I cant stand the way my face looks!

Everyone should gain weight during pregnancy. I gained 60 lbs and was also small. 5'3 but small build. I'm back to my normal size. Eat something girl!

Your weight gain is in the normal range. I was 102 before pregnancy, 120-something when I delivered at 38 weeks.

Now, exactly how are you allergic to ALL fruits and vegetables?

Recommended gain is like twenty pounds or so. As long as you're eating enough and eating healthy foods there's nothing to worry about. Also, the stretch marks appear after you give birth from your stomach deflating. Cocoa and Shea butter are good, so is coconut oil for massaging into the areas you're likely to get them in (breasts, stomach, thighs) to prevent and reduce the marks.
