no. Just try to eat regularly and get enough water. Weight gain isn't the end all be all.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Nothing to be worried about at all. Some women gain weight straight away, others not til later on and some even lose weight with all the throwing up from morning sickness. I'm 28 weeks along in my 3rd pregnancy and I've only put on 5 kgs (don't know what that is in pounds) so either I've lost weight on myself or my baby is going to be on the small side, either way I'm not worried as she is very active and healthy. Keep a healthy diet (lots of water, fruit, vegs, iron, calcium, etc) and I'm sure your little one will be fine but talk to your Dr. about your concerns if you are still worried. Good luck!
