Re: Not Gaining Weight

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.
