cant stop crying so scared /:

Okay. Had my normal appt today. Doctor said i have only gained 2 lbs this whole pregnancy. It could mean i myself have lost weight and lily is fine or it could mean lily isnt right. Amd also checked my cervix because of all the pressure bc its so bad i cant get pants on without crying. Im not dilated, but he said i can start anyday so i have to be really careful. Im so scared for my baby. Im trying hard not to stress but its so hard not to

With my first I only put on 10 pounds.  She was 6 lbs 3 oz.  My second I didn't put on any weight and my son was 8 lbs 11 oz.  Don't  worry its all about how many nutrients the baby needs.  Just like the other moms are saying.  :-)   The weight you need to worry about is the weight after the pregnancy.  You are considered postpartum for 6 months after birth while your hormones go back to normal.  This is where I get screwed and pack on the weight.  :-)   I'd rather stay pregnant.  :-)

My mom was so sick during her first pregnancy she ended up losing 20 or 30 lbs and she was already really small. The baby was a healthy 8 lbs, though! Try not to worry too much. Was your baby measuring ok during your anatomy ultrasound? If so, and if your fundal height is normal, you should be fine.

With my first pregnancy I only gained 5 pounds and the baby was healthy... This pregnancy I have gained the same and my baby is doing good according to the measurement... I have lost weight on both of my pregnancies... It's prob because the baby is taking all the nutrients she needs... So I would say not to worry unless the doctor tells you otherwise
