Not gaining any weight..
Hello.. I am now currently 20w3days pregnant with my first baby! It's a BOY!! I had a rough time the first 8 weeks i was pregnant and lost alot of weight. I went from 190 to 152 pounds all in two months. I was very sick and was put in the hospital for a week to rehydrate me and the baby. Since then I have only gained one pound, I am now 153 pounds. I am very worried that i haven't been gaining the right amount of weight to keep my little boy healthy. The morning sickness has gone away but now im rarely hungry, and I never crave anything. My belly hasn't grown much although my belly button does seem to be looking differently. I am feeling my baby move alott at night when im laying down or anytime im sitting, which for me is a good sign..i'm just very worried.. Are there any foods that any of you know of that yal have liked during pregnancy that i might be able to try??

Thanks,

It's not necessarily cause for concern. With my boys I gained very little.  I lost in the beginning and only gained back about 15-16 lbs each....most in the last trimester.  As long as your doctor is not concerned then you shouldn't be either.  It's not always about weight gain.  I have actually come out of a couple of my pregnancies smaller than when i started them.  As long as baby is healthy that is the most important thing.

Unless your baby isn't growing properly, like your uterus expanding more, or noticeable in ultrasounds, i wouldn't be concerned.

I am pregnant with my first and I have seriously gained 80 pounds. Consider yourself lucky!

a Friend of mine only gained 14 lbs in her hole pregnancy and she was normal weight and they say you should gain 25-30 if your normal weight and her baby is healthy.

im 22 weeks and i was underweight and i have gained 12 lbs almost what she gained i her entire pregnancy.

As long as your baby is growing properly i dont think thats a problem

Im the same as you, losing weight rather than putting on. In the first 3-4 months I couldnt eat because of sickness  - which wore off when I was around 15 weeks. Im still not very hungry and rarely crave anything. Also I only feel my bean moving when Im sitting or lying down in bed at night - very strong sometimes!! I think its completely normal. My midwife and the sonographer haven't shown any concern in this and scan shows that beans fine.

Hope you feel some comfort in knowing that your not in this alone! Take care of yourself and your bump! x
