Pregnancy weight gain

Hello hello. I'm a ftm expecting my baby girl around January 2nd. I'm currently 33 weeks + 6 days . At my appointment a few days ago my doctor told me I've only gained 19 pounds so far. I've noticed that my belly is literally all baby. Is it possible to determine whether the baby will be relatively small or a bit bigger based on my weight gain ?

My due date is januray 2nd too☺. Id say your all baby. And baby still has time to get fatter lol.I've not gained any weight in d pregnancy at all I've lost weight. but I was a little over weight to begin with. And scan says my baby in around 5 pound mark now.but you can't really tell from d size of d belly. Coz there fluid and stuff in there. can't wait till baby gets here. Not long now xx

I am a type 1 diabetic and I have talked to my Dr about c sections and vaginally deliveries and she says our goal for me is to do it vaginally unless complications make it so I cant. but my sister in law had a c section because she had some birthing complications she wasn't a diabetic but she did it like a champ and all went well. the baby's dad even got to be in the room with her still. and my cousin is pregnant with her 4th baby and she said she prefers c sections cuz she feels like they are easier on her. my doctor said it is longer recovery time but nothing to worry about.

I don't think your weight gain contributes too much

With my daughter I lost weight, carried all on my stomach my midwife measured my stomach at 37weeks and said said I should expect an 11lb baby

Congratulations!!! My mom in her first pregnancy only gained 18 lbs all together. All baby and I weighed 6 lbs 4 oz. (with me) and now I'm pregnant with my first. Seem to be the same way. I haven't gained much and I'm super small for 6 months. But not to worry! Every body is different and you can still have a happy and healthy baby while not gaining much weight! Just means less to lose after baby and less stretch marks ❤️
