i thinkk it all depends on where you start off at! i was technically underweight when i got pregnant and i have gained 8lbs and im 19wks5days..... but with my first child i had already gained prob 20lbs by 5mo... i think it just depends, your doc will prob want you to gain between 25-35lbs and you still have another 20wks to do so! i would worry to much!

I'm getting close to 19 wks and I've lost 7 lbs, and I've never gotten sick, so thats not it. I look Very preggo (like 6 mon at least) I'm not worried though.

With my first I didn't gain a pound until I was 24 weeks. Then I gained 20. ALL of it was baby.

This time around I am 17 weeks and about 1lb lighter than I started at. I usually eat healthier when pregnant which helps, but this time around between heart burn and nausea I just don't have an appetite for much.

I lost 8 lbs. in the beginning and then by the time my daughter was born, which was Saturday I had gained 11 pounds from my starting weight, I gained 19 pounds all together. Well I just weighed myself and I am 3 pounds less than I started my pregnancy and I am REALLY swollen still from the c-section, so hopefully I will weigh even less soon! I ate right and still lost in the beginning and didn't gain much I didn't think. Well my daughter weighed 9 lbs. and was 21 inches long, so needless to say she was healthy. Don't worry about it. As long as you are eating right then your baby and you will be just fine.

I lost, then gained, then lost, and then stayed around my pre pregnancy weight for a bit, and now have gained a couple pounds again. As long as you are able to eat a healthy amount, and feel okay OB told me it was pretty normal - but he didn't want me to loose too much.

you have nothing to worry about, if you are eating correctly the fact that you gain or lose weight has nothing to do, every pregnancy and every woman is different, some of us gain weight like I did and others lose weight, my cousin actually she lost weight around 8 or 10 pounds until the 5th month after that she started to gain weight and by the end of the pregnancy she gained 15 pounds and the baby was a healthy 7 pounds baby. so take it easy, just eat what we must and everything will be fine.

im 18 weeks soon to be 19 weeks and i have been under so far. This one has been strange for me, i have a son who is 4 and when i was prego with him i was eating like a horse..lol not really but seems like it! But with this one I have no appetite, seems like it goes away more and more everyday! I have told it should pick up but it hasn't yet, should i worry? There are days I have to force myself to eat! The vitamins make me constipated, i just don't get this pregnancy at all! I just don't know if i should worry or not! Any ideas of what i can do?
