I'm 32 weeks, and i have only gained 7.5 lbs. i started overweight (20 lbs overweight). i honestly thought i would gain a lot since i can eat like a truck driver, but i have not had much of an appetite, and i find myself forcing myself to eat because i know the baby needs it. the baby was measured 2 weeks ago and he is average. i worry though that he will stop growing normally since my appetite hasn't improved. the following weeks are crucial for him since he should be gaining more weight and fat. what can i do?

I am 25 weeks pregnant. before pregnancy, i started off at 116 pounds. i am now 144. my doctor made me feel even worse, but i don't know what i can do because it's not like i over eat. this is my second boy and it's stressful hearing those numbers.

I've gained 15 lbs already and i'm only 18 weeks and 5 days pregnant, i have been eating a normal balanced diet, although more carbs. i've been exercising and hardly eat any sweet treats. it's so depressing because i feel like a blob, and just look fat rather than pregnant. i've always battled with my weight, and know i'm gonna find it so hard trying to shift it after my baby arrives.

I started weighing at 100 lbs. i am 25 weeks along, and now i weigh 160. my obgyn isn't too happy. i just don't know what to do. any help? is weighing too much bad for the baby?

Guest Oct 17, 2014 11:03:56 AM ET

It depends if you gain weight out of bad eating habits. eat healthy and diet after the birth.

I don't see an obstetrician, and i am 16 weeks pregnant. so far, i have gained between 9-10 pounds. i eat exactly the way i did pre-pregnancy, which is organic whole foods with no processed, refined foods, and no sugar, caffeine, etc. i still train four times a week with weight training and intervals on my bike. my point is if i listened to the numbers, they would tell me i have gained far too much at the 16 week mark. everyone is different. if your ob is stressing you out every time you go see him/her, maybe it's time for a new doctor. stress would be far more damaging to your body and baby. everyone is different just like every baby is different and will develop at different rates, and put on weight at different rates. try to relax and take care of yourself.

I'm 33, 5'5", and 21 weeks pregnant. i only gained 6 lbs. is that normal?

Guest Oct 16, 2014 10:33:44 AM ET

I am 34, 5'5", and at 23 weeks have gained 8 lbs. my doctor says that's absolutely fine. just be aware of where you are getting your calories from and make them good ones.
