Weight

I'm 18 weeks and 4 days and still haven't gain any weight. Doctor said it was normal... Anyone else go through this ?

Yes---and at my 18th week scan it was determined my baby girl was in the 18th percentile for her size, likely due to me not putting on any lasting weight. Please, start eating heavily but healthy. Your doctor may not be concerned but you should be, your child could possibly be suffering from the lack of nutrition.

Thank you I feel like I've been gaining weight and eat 3 big meals and snacks in between, never had morning sickness this baby been really good, but when I go on the scale for my appotiment not much has changed. I'll have my first ultra sound on my 20 weeks let's hope for some good news!

Eat six small meals a day and several snacks, make sure you drink a ton of water as well, and that you take daily prenatal vitamins, too.

Once you hit your 3rd trimester youll gain all the weight you need i was the same way but once i hit that mark i blew up ive now gained 27 pounds each pregnancy is different though
Milkshakes were a big help for me as well and whole milk :)

I'm almost 19 weeks and just barely am back to what I was from losing 10 pounds in my first trimester. Doctor is pretty worried but eating is really hard when I'm so sick all the time ):

Yes! I get so hungry now!!

If you're eating regularly and healthy,  you should be fine.  I'm 27 weeks and I've only gained 5 pounds altogether.  My doctor says I'm fine and my baby is right where she needs to be.  I'm guessing all the weight will be showing up soon in this last trimester :p
