I also gained very little. Actually in the beginning I lost despite the fact I had no morning sickness. At my 16 week appointment I only gained 1lb. The doctor was not concerned because Im a bigger girl. He said bigger moms are supposed to gain less weight and even lose in my case. So long as your healthy its all good.

I'm 17 weeks and I've lost 11 lbs. My doctor was pretty upset about it at my last appt. I'm hoping to gave a gain at the next. I'm not showing much at this point. I gained 14 lbs with my first pregnancy and my Dr (different Dr ) was fine with that.

I don't know what ur weight was prior to becoming prego but that could def play a roll. Now my starting weight was 114 so I would think if my little self lost weight they would be concerned but noooooo I'm 127 now and feel like a stuffed baked potatoe lol. If I keep this up I will almost be near the 150s.. sorry had to vent lol but I'm sure ur fine.

I agree with Jayla. The smaller you are, the more you tend to gain because your body needs it during pg.

I started out this pg overweight, so I'm not surprised not to have a big gain.

I am 17 1/2 weeks and haven't gained any weight. I actually lost 4 pounds at the beginning even though I didn't have morning sickness. I think everyone is just different and my doctor isn't concerned at all. I'm an average/smaller sized person too. I know with my DS I didn't gain hardly anything at the beginning then bam all the sudden around 26 weeks literally gained like ten pounds in a week. So I wouldn't be too concerned. I also don't look very pregnant and just had my regular jeans on a few days ago.

I am due 12-7 with my third and have not gained yet but definitely started showing in the past couple weeks. I gained 35 with my first and 15 with my second. My body has some extra pounds to start with now so I am totally content (and dr has not said a word).

I'm 20 weeks and I've gained 4 pounds so far. My doctor isn't worried because 1) I was considered overweight to begin with, 2) I always make up for it later, 3) Once I go on bed rest ( which might be very soon) I usually start gaining a lot from inactivity.

I'm definitely showing though. I love the fact that you can tell I'm pregnant. At 16 weeks people were still looking at me wondering if I was pregnant or just getting fat. You'll pop soon enough.
