help! first time teen mom please.

Hey ladies. Im a 17 year old pregnant teen. Im 4 months along and this is my first child. Im very petite, only 4'9 & my belly already looks huge, Ive gained 13 pounds in total since I first found out I was pregnant up until now, the fourth month and my doctor said im only suppose to gain 25-35 pounds through out the whole pregnancy. I excercise and only drink water. Am I gaining too much weight too quick ? If so, What would some of you recommend to lose the weight? Please comment

You certainly should not think about losing weight whilst being pregnant! Pregnancy looks different on everyone and on small women it can show more than on bigger women so I wouldn't worry about. Take the prenatal vitamins that are needed during pregnancy, eat right but make sure you are gaining weight as your baby depends on you in order to grow and develop. You could ask your doctor about what you should eat to help your baby develop.

I agree ^^^^^.. your baby needs all the weight they can get. (As long as it's healthy baby weight) and with you being 17 and just a petite person anyway, you'll more than likely not even look like you had a baby afterwards. But most of the weight you can is the baby, and the fluid that your baby floats in, and the natural "mommy weight" every woman gets when they get pregnant. Worry about losing weight after the baby's born. You'll be just fine
