My weight during pregnancy

So as per the weight chart, I'm suppose to have gained at least 12lbs and gain 1 lb every week. Currently Ive gained only 10. I eat everything i want & some but i think i burning more than  i consuming. Should i be concerned that im slightly under weight??

I wouldn't take any notice of the weight chart on this app, or any other for that matter. As long as your midwife/doctor has no concerns then I wouldn't worry :) this app said I was under weight until I was 23 weeks then said I was fine until 30+ where it says I've gained excessive weight when I've only gained 4lbs over what they recommend at 39 weeks! As if a pregnant woman doesn't already feel conscious about her weight! Wishing you a healthy pregnancy and baby x
