I am 20 weeks and 3 days pregnant and super anxious to meet my baby boy.



I have yet to feel him move but they say he is totally healthy from what they can tell, and I feel like i've been pregnant for sooooo long. also i've not gained a single pound...are any of those things normal???

ok, thanks. i was a bit concerned but my ob has not said anything about it. I get hip pains often as well not sure what thats about or why but it will get bad enough to where it will wake me up at night or i wont be able to move because of the pain.

Thats exactly how far along I am. I lost 7 lbs from the puking between week 9 and 16. I also had occasional puking after that from acid reflux but now it has stopped completely for the time being. I just recently started gaining weight. I can feel my lil girl though. Yesterday and the day before I have felt her more than I ever have.

Were u sick in the beginning of your pregnancy? or do u have a more full body shape? those 2 issues can cause you to stay the same weight or loose weight . As long as the docs are saying baby is fine , u shouldnt need to be concerned. I am due the same week as you and am going to get my sonogram results today :) i have gained almost 20lbs already :(

I would say that when it becomes a concern to your doctor, they will mention it. I have a check up today and im curious to see what they weigh me in as today. I havent been gripped at yet over it, but you have to take into consideration of how long your puking stage was cause that will make a difference and stop weight gain or atleast it made it hard for me to gain.

u should definately start putting on the weight now....the baby will still have/ make room to grow but that will require the baby taking nutrients from you that u need to have a healthy pregnancy, labor, & delivery. How tall are u?

U are definately on the small side....128 is small for someone that is 5'4 that isnt 5mo pregnant. R u taking in enough calories? If you desire to breast feed that may be a problem if you arent nutritionally stable at time of delivery (your milk may not come in, if you arent eating enough calories to support milk production.) I know some women just dont have an appetite when pregnant ....but considering the weight of the baby, fluid, placenta, extra breast tissue, ect...if u are maintaining the same weight ,u are actually loosing weight yourself and the baby is taking it.

I had a flat stomach until 23wks with my first and was around 50kilos (not sure what that is in pounds) and 5,7. Some people just carry small, Im coming up to 23 wks with number 4 and it was only last week that I was noticeably pregnant. Dont stress, you'll get that bump lol.

all the the recommended foods are a nutritional guideline for an ''average'' weight pregnant women....when u are under weight u need to add healty more high calorie/fat to your meals (full fat dairy options, use olive oil for cooking instead of cooking spray, eat a handfull of nuts between meals, or add protien shakes to your diet )

don't stress you will soon feel those flutters that turn into "omg his going to break my rids lol "
And I promise you will soon notice the "preggers pounds " hehehe
just eat healthy plenty of fluids your doc will mention it if his not happy with your weight gain .
