I had an OB visit on Wednesday, and I have not gained any weight at all. Im 19 and a half weeks pregnant, but I was already overweight to begin with, probably a good 30 pounds if not more. My doctor doesnt seem concerned, but said that at my "age" (im so tired of hearing that) I am at risk for IUGR. (Intra-uterine growth restriction). Has anyone else been told that? He said that after 20 weeks I should start gaining a pound a week, which would be starting next week. Im not overly concerned, because Im really not eating a whole lot, I just dont have much of an appetite, still. I still get nauseous, I dont throw up usually, but foods just dont appeal to me.
Does anyone else know anything about this? Is anyone else not gaining a whole lot of weight? I just want the baby to grow healthy, and as soon as my doc. touched my belly, he said I feel like Im 20 weeks along. I am getting bigger, but just my belly.
Id appreciate knowing if anyone else has had a similar experience.
