Where is your weight these days? Have you been gaining regularly? Slowly? Has it stalled? Have you lost any weight?

I was fine and not worried, until I came here for Xmas. I am currently at 0 weight gain, I had lost 8lbs in the beginning, gained a few back, about 4, and then lost 4 since getting here 3 weeks ago. I did ave the flu s o I know that is part of it, but still makes me nervous that at almost 1/2 way though my pregnancy I haven't gained anything and I'm still down from my strting weight.

I know baby is growing but I still worry, I am taking my vitamins regularly still and tryi g to drink lots of water to make up for my lack of appetite.

Ohhhhh I went from nothing to like 10lbs. :/ I wouldn't worry if baby is growing OK I typically don't gain so easily and the OB would yell, my MW this time said as long as baby is growing that is just fine.

Honestly I hope to gain only 5 lbs. this whole pregnancy. For me being overweight it would be fine. So far I've gained 4-5 lbs.

I'm still even as well, I am overweight though so the OB doesn't seem concerned. I also hope to not gain much - 10 to 15 pounds. we'll see!

I think I'm at about 13lbs... which I gained almost entirely in the first trimester, a first for me... from having to keep eating or else be sick all day long. I haven't gained anything in a few weeks, even though I've been eating Christmassy goodness.

What does your care provider say about your lack of weight gain. If he/she isn't worried, I wouldn't be either You're doing everything you can!

I've gained about 7 pounds by my scale. Doctor says 10, but I think part of that is just different clothes/shoes. I don't weigh regularly, so I haven't really paid attention to the patterns of my gain.

I'm up 3 lbs. I just asked my ob about it yesterday and he said that they really don't worry as much about maternal weight as they used to, since they are able to track baby's growth with technology now too. I think this pregnancy is going to be smiilar to my last in that I'm not really expecting to gain significantly until close to the 3rd trimester.

I'll be 20 weeks tomorrow and I am still just under my pre-pregnancy weight. I was in a panic 2 appointments back and my OB said not to worry. I told her I'd been trying to remain calm because my belly was still growing and that made me feel like at least my baby is ok - she said that's exactly the right way to think about it. At that appointment she told me to relax on what I'm supposed to eat - just eat what sounds good and will stay down. I still get sick, so I'm still following this advice and our ultrasound on Friday was great. Don't get me wrong, I think if all I could keep down was chocolate cake my doctor would want to strangle me but when we're talking about eating more fruit and not getting enough vegetables, she's not worried.

In my previous pregnancies, I have gained anywhere from 28-48 pounds. Currently I am 22 weeks and have gained close to 10 pounds.

I had gained 6 pounds during the first trimester but in the last month (dealing with my mom) I have lost 4! My OB was not happy about this and put me on rest, not bed rest but I am to keep my feet up and take it easy for the next month or I'll be on strict bed rest.

I have gained about 10 pounds, most of it from the effects of the fertility drugs and going off them. They don't treat my body so nice. Last pregnancy I gained about 50 pounds, so I am just hoping not to gain as much as I did last time!

I am jealous of all of you that have not gained much. I swear I look at food and gain weight.
