Its normal to be slow at gaining weight in thr first few weeks I didnt start gaining alot until 20 weeks. Protein will help though amd also just eat alot dont force yourself if you cant eat but if you feel hungry or just wanna snack than do it. But protein helps alot like protein shakes or bars

Your good where your at. I'm 114 no and I'm 23 weeks and 4 days. I just got out of the military weighing 113. I was 13 weeks when I found out weighing 104. Now I'm back to my normal weight and the baby is her right size even though I gained nothing more. Its normal give it time cause that's what I'm doing.

I'm 37 weeks and I've only gained 10 pounds. As long as baby is growing and you are being monitored, everything should be fine. I didn't start gaining anything until about month 5. And me and baby are just perfect.

Please don't get to wrapped up in trying to gain weight or trying to follow those charts. Everyone is different. You maybe very active which causes ur weight to balance. Just make sure u are eating enough and healthy food choices u will be fine. I personally have been on that end of concern of not gaining weight, but I din't think the docs considered that I was very active.. I went to school worked two jobs and also played and engaged with my 8 year old.
