I'm almost 17 weeks with my 3rd baby. I have not felt the baby move and I haven't gained a pound. Worried is that normal? With my previous pregnancies I had gained about 5lbs by now.

 If you have an anterior placenta (in front) then you would not feel baby move as early as you did with your others. Just one idea. I had an anterior placenta with my dd and did not feel her until 20 weeks.

Some women dont feel the baby move until 20 weeks. Also I know not all women gain weight either, especially if you are over weight to begin with (not saying you are). I know with my ds I gained 8 lbs total and my dd I was -2lbs. If you are concerned call your OB. Otherwise this may be "normal."

Lol I'm not overweight. I was 103 before kids, 120 after my first and 160 after my 2nd but lost some now I'm 130. I was told with my 2nd pregnancy that I had a sideways uterus idk if that would make a difference.

Normal. Some people even lose weight the first few months.

If you have a tilted uterus again that could be why you haven't felt anything yet. My friend had one and she didnt feel kicks til 20 something weeks :( also like you I was tiny pre preg, my first I weighed like 114 going in, only gained 12 lbs total... Then weighed 108 after.. gained weight when my son was 5 months, then went into this pregnancy weighing almost 124 (oops) and I am 31 weeks pregnant and weigh 126 !

Try not to worry so much !
