no weight gain 2nd trimester

Hi, I'm 21 wks and haven't gained weight at all only like 4 or 5 lbs. Is that ok? Or should I have more weight gain?

As long as you're not intentionally avoiding food or dieting, it's fine. Most of your weight gain will come in the last trimester.

I'm 18 weeks and still 10lbs down but I'm eating the same as I ever have. It's nothing to worry about unless your purposefully losing weight or not eating or having severe sickness and not getting the right nutrients. I know my weight loss was due to morning sickness.

Ok thanks you two. I Had Bad Morning Sickness Thats Probably Where My Weight Gain is, Down The Toilet lol. I was just making sure I didn't have nothing to worry about.

You're fine. That's normal. You still have plenty of time. I'm 24 weeks and I've gained 12 lbs so consider yourself lucky
