Not as big.... Mrs. J Soto :-) 1 child; Colorado Springs, Colorado 57 posts

I am 17 weeks and 3 days today and everything seemed like it was going great and the belly was filling in and rounding out, now these past two days it seems like my stomach has gone down a bit and I'm worried. I still feel little movements, but at this point I'm not sure if it's gas or the baby. I'm trying not to stress about it but it's worrying me my weight at the start of pregnancy was 163 and at 6 weeks I weighed 155, I currently weigh in at 162 and have been for a week now. Should I be worried? I have an appointment Friday, but I'm so anxious and scared. I tried so long to get here and I'll just die if something is wrong with our baby. :-(

That is actually super normal. Your belly will be big one day and the next not so much. Your at that stage in your pregnancy. Don't worry. Here soon you will have a baby belly that will stay and grow and grow and grow some more. Don't freak out.

Everything sounds perfectly fine. Somedays even when I was 5 months+ I would wake up and my belly be almost flat. The baby could just be in a different position. And your weight gain/loss dosnt have much to do with the baby's growth. You still have a while to go. Don't worry :)

Thank you, I have just been so scared and thinking I'm not eating enough even though I eat as much as I can. I just want baby to be healthy and happy.
