Should I seriously be freaking out right now? I am almost 3 months pregnant. I am still the same weight I was before I got pregnant which is 114. I've read a couple of online baby sites and it says I should have gained at least 5lbs by now and since I am considered underweight, I need to gain between 28-40lbs. That sounds like a lot to me! I was 113lbs when I was 22 and got pregnant with DS. I only gained 23lbs and got up to 136. Should I be worried?

no you shouldn't be worried :wink: Everyone is different. I don't think I had gained a full 5lbs until 20w even...

I actually lost weight at first and only gained 15 my whole pregnancy. I would talk to your midwife and see what she thinks

you work at Chilis, I didn't know that! we go there all the time lmao. maybe try tracking your calories for a few days & see what the number is?? my fav app for that is myfitnesspal.

I am 24 weeks today :P and I still haven't gained a pound yet. My OB isn't worried. The baby will get what the baby needs regardless if you gain or not. You are still early, so you may still gain. Either way, I am sure everything is fine :P



I had to add. I haven't gained anything, but my hubby has gained 15 pounds already! BWAHHAHA!

Couvade syndrome! Maybe he'll feel your labor pains, too! :D

I'm 14 wks pregnant with my 2nd (they always say you show earlier with the 2nd). I still have a flat tummy and haven't gained weight either (I also didn't gain weight or show with my first pregnancy at this point either). So I am sure you are fine. Just make sure you are eating plenty of nutritious food!
