They used to tell me that also I had such a small belly. My daughter weight 6 pounds and I had her on her due date she's really small.
I don't thing size & weight matter as long as they are healthy! (;

Thank you I've gained 9 pounds since I've been pregnant but my tummy isn't as big as most people at 7 months.

Have u gained any weight during your pregnancy?

Yes 9 pounds I've lost 10 in my first trimester

I see. Well depending on how much u weighed before that could be a bit under normal range but doesn't mean baby isn't healthy. The last 3 months babies even double their weight in a few weeks alone.

Doctors haven't told me anything they always say baby is healthy but I do honestly feel like I can be bigger but I'm trying my hardest to eat more and more
