not gaining weight

So I am almost 30 weeks and my prepregnancy weight was 177, I am now at 179. I suffered a broken ankle last month and am getting over bronchitis and a stomach virus right now. I am worried that the fact that I am only 2 lbs heavier than when I got pregnant will somehow hurt my baby even though he has looked perfect in ultrasounds. I have tried to bring it up to my ob but no one seems to want to talk about it. Should I be worried?

I was 175 and now 201 at 30 weeks. I've gained a little too much.. But as long as your doc isn't concerned you should be okay.

If your doc isn't concerned and baby is growing I would not worry.

I am 17 weeks and down 28.5 pounds due to other health issues. Down to 156pounds.    My doc isnt too concerned.  I am just going to double my prenatal vitamins since my diet is so limited. If they arent concerned and you are eating good baby is likely doing great!
