Not gaining weight...

I am 27weeks pregnant with my third and I haven't gained an ounce, I didn't gain much with my other two but I did gain some by this point. My Dr says everything's ok but I'm just wondering if anyone else is experiancing no weight gain.

yes its completely normal.. have you ever watched the show 'i didn't know i was pregnant'? those women don't gain any weight or bearly any.. if the doctor says your healthy then just relax.. the worst thing you could do is stress about it..

I wish I had that "problem" lol With my other 3 pregnancies I lost weight in the beginning due to morning sickness and then flaboomed near the end. This pregnancy I have been up and down like a yo-yo but the Dr says everything is good. As long as your Dr. isn't worried I wouldn't stress about it. Some don't put on any weight until near the end of their pregnancy. Enjoy it!!

I didn't start to gain weight till I was 29 weeks I was also very sick with morning sickness till then but then started having issues with heartburn. I am now 34 weeks and have only gained about 10 lbs. This is my first baby also, I am due May 24th

I wouldn't worrie about it unless you start to lose weight fast. I have 4 little girls and with every last one of them I have lost weight at first and then slowly gained untill I was back to where I had started. Just eat properly and take your vitamins and if you doc says everything is good than try to relax!

Yes i am experiencing the same thing. I am 30 weeks and i have actually lost weight. I had lost 26 pounds and now have just been starting to stay the same and go up a bit. At this point i have lost 22 pounds. My doctor is not worried and says that it is fine that i am not gaining alot. I am already overweight so it is not gonna kill me to loose a bit. The baby is happy and healthy and that is all that matters, if you doctor is not concerned then i dont think you should be either. Just enjoy the fact that you have not gained any weight and enjoy the rest of you pregnancy. Most women by this point are upset because of the weight gain so at least you dont have to worry there.

I'm the opposite, I have always been heavier than I look I'm 5'6 and I was 152 pounds when I got pregnant but looked more like 130 ish, I'm 31 weeks and weigh 191 pounds LOL! I don't look like I weigh almost 200 pounds and the doctor says I'm fine and that the baby is on the big side. As long as your doctor said the baby is growing it's perfectly fine, especially if this is similar to your previous pregnancy and if you had any extra weight to begin with, baby only weighs 6-8 pounds so it's not like you really need to gain more than 10-15 pounds just that most of us do!
