It's normal . I weight 174 since the beginning of my pregnancy now I'm 35 weeks and I still weight the same,  My doctor said it's normal as long as you don't lose more than 15 to 20 pounds. But try eating Veggies. Make your plate look colourful and appetizing.

A lot of times when women are on the heavier side, they lose weight during pregnancy.  They don't really eat more because they probably had a fairly high caloric intake prior to pregnancy and yet their body is burning extra calories.  And you're having a low appetite.    So, I'd not worry.  Eat healthy, frequent meals and make calories count.  good luck

Thank you hopefully when I progress through this pregnancy I'll gain a few pounds I've just always gained weight with my pregnancies never lost weight lol  
I definitely ONLY gained weight.  It wasn't fully welcome as it was a bit much but oh well.  LOL
