This is my second pregnancy I'm 38 weeks and haven't gained any weight I actually lost around 5 lb this pregnancy and my first pregnancy I didn't gain any weight as well and my baby was very healthy. My Obgyn says that this baby is at the right size as well so the baby is gaining the necessary weight and I'm losing weight I guess. I've been pretty nauseous but for the most part I've been keeping most of my food down but I don't have much of an appetite most days.

I am 21 and almost 14 weeks pregnant. I was diagnosed with Hyperemesis gravidarum and have lost 20 pounds due to not being able to keep any foods or liquids down. My doc has tried every medication safe to take and even a couple with some low risks but nothing seems to help. I've even tried in home remedy's off the internet or suggested by my doc or anyone who has had bad morning sickness. I have now also started getting really bad dizzy spells even when sitting down, and terrible heartburn that is so bad I can't even drink water. Any suggestions?

I'm in a similar situation -24 weeks pregnant with a huge bump but, i'm still 6kg less than pre-pregnancy. still being hospitalized every couple of weeks. zofran (ondansetron) has been a life saver for me. i take 8mg dissolvable wafers every 8 hours. it only works 50% of the time but, that's better than nothing! other medications have been no use to me as i vomit the pills back up but the iv drugs are the best. i truly hope you get some relief soon.

I am on 25th week of my pregnancy. I don't have Morning sickness, body swelling etc problem. But I have gained only 3 kg since the beginning. Is it normal? At 20th week my baby's weight was 327 gm (+-47 gm). I am worrying. Please advise.

I'm 25 weeks and 5 days pregnant. I'm having my first baby,a boy. My start weight was 138 lbs but, now I'm down to 130. I'm starting to get worried because I'm actually loosing weight and I was pretty small to start with. My doctor has me on supplements but, still no weight gain. Should I be worried? The doctor said my baby is growing fine but, I was anemic before I got pregnant and he said I'm at a high risk for malnutrition. What can I do to gain weight? Nothing I've tried so far is working.

Ask your obgyn to refer you to a nutritionist. i'd absolutely do that if i were you. on a side note, in order to gain weight: if you exercise frequently, cut back on that a little to preserve calories. also, try your best to eat more high calorie healthy foods- etc: nuts, avocado, peas, whole grains, lean meats. i hope you and baby continue to do well.
