Small baby

[deleted account] ( 4 moms have responded )

Hey, I don't know if it's just me, but I'm around 25 weeks and I'm just now starting to get a little bit of a belly. I mean, people can't even tell I'm pregnant. I was at a Bridal Shower and everyone just thought I gained a few pounds. That's another thing, I'm not gaining weight like everyone says I should. Ever since I've been pregnant, I've LOST weight. I mean, I've put some of it back on, but not a whole lot. The doctors all seem to say I'm fine, the ultra-sounds are fine, everything seems to be fine. Am I worrying over nothing? I just feel so...I don't know. Not like other pregnant women? And another thing, she doesn't move like people say she should be. There are sometimes where she goes days at a time and I don't feel her. Am I the only one like this or does anyone have advice? I'm super lost. (By the way, this is my first)

i only gained 20lbs throughout my entire pregnancy. You could not tell i was pregnant until i was about 7 1/2 months. and my daughter was perfectly healthy. so i wouldn't worry to much about the low weight gain. ecspeically if the drs say everything is ok

I didn't gain a lot of weight at first and then when I was like 6 months pregnant I started gaining weight. I ended up gaining a total of like 70 lbs. When I was like 20 weeks pregnant I saw a girl I used to go to school with and she actually said wow you are getting fat. I said thanks bitch I am pregnant. I am sure you will be fine and the baby will too. If you don't gain a lot of weight the less weight you will have to loose after the baby is born. and if there was something wrong then the doctor would tell you.

AWE. Well i'm a new mom of a 30weeker - and honestly you dont always have to gain a massive amount of weight ; your body bends and fourms in different ways - How much did you weigh pre-pregnancy? If your ultrasounds and doctors are happy at where your at then relax ; as long as your eating regularily and drinking often - dont worry! Stress isn't any good for your body or your baby!!

From experience I didnt gain hardly any weight until about 24weeks .. between 24-30weeks i gained about 15-17bs!!
