At 17 weeks I didn't even look pregnant and had barely gained any weight. I was freaking out and starting adding an extra meal each day until my doctor told me to stop forcing myself to eat extra food.
I am now 21 weeks pregnant and have only gained at the low end of normal (about 1 pound per week starting around week 18) and many people tell me they can't believe I am so small for being about 5 months pregnant. However, after much concern and extra visits to my doctor my baby is measuring exactly in the normal range for growth.

Its tottaly normal, I didn't really start gaining my weight until after 24 weeks and now I'm 34 weeks and I'm starting to gain the weight I'm suppose to. You may just not gain it until the end like I did.

Don't worry about it! For 1, worrying will just create stress and anxiety that you don't need. If you doctor says you're healthy, trust your doctor. For 2, with my first child, I didn't show at all until over 5 months, and even by then I just looked a little chubby. I have a picture of me at 7 months and I didn't look pregnant at all! But my little boy came out at 7 lbs and is now a perfectly happy 3 year old. Even at nine months pregnant, I was ALL belly. Nothing grew but my belly. In the end, its actually better for you, because all your weight is your baby. I lost every bit of my baby weight within a month of his birth by simply eating healthy. As long as your doctor says your baby is growing healty, count it up as a miracle! Good luck
