Default weight gain - worried

I haven't gained any weight yet and I'm 13.5 weeks. Now I'm not a skinny minny at all but I thought I you were to put on some weight. I have my scan and hospital app next tues and I'm worrying of what I will see. Stupid I know. Everyone says I should put on some weight and now I'm scared.

I'm not asking for people's weight but have you or haven't you put on weight and if yes how many lbs roughly?

Do you think I should be worried?

I only gained 1 lb until I was 14 weeks or so-- then i gained 4 more before 16 weeks
 


your scale could be off-- or you could just be waiting to gain it
 
as long as you eat healthy when you are hungry I wouldnt worry!

I haven't gained any weight yet and I am 18 weeks and 2 days... I have been trying to keep my weightgain to a minimum because I started at a higher weight, people have told me that I am probably losing fat, and baby is gaining, so I will probably be at lower then my starting weight when I am no longer pregnant, as it hs happened to some of them...anyway, baby looks great on the ultrasound so I am not concerned about the lack of weight gain... I am sure there is no reason for you to be either...

I would be a little overweight to begin with and any research I've done said any person starting off overweight should probably only gain 1-2lbs in the first tri. I lose a lb or 2 then gain it back, i've just not gone over my starting weight. My mind is playing tricks so close to my scan I guess. at 8 weeks the heartbeat was strong and everything looked perfect so I'll try to relax. I'm only getting an appetite this week, had previously just ate for the sake of the baby.

Thanks girls.
