Hey. i'm 20 years old, and pregnant with my first child. i am 5ft, 3 months pregnant, and 148 lbs. i started out weighing at 135 lbs and then went to 142 lbs. am i gaining weight too fast? am i too big to be 3 months pregnant? please help me.

Leah Feb 3, 2015 08:21:44 PM ET

Did you put your numbers into the pregnancy weight calculator? i put your numbers in and it suggested you are gaining weight a little too fast. it said to aim to gain 0.85 to 1.1 pounds each week. i know it's not healthy to try and lose weight at this point, so don't worry too much if you are a little over.

Your second question is pretty concerning as it seems you may not be making regular ob appointments (at your 10-12 week appointment, your ob would have verified how far along you are based on your last missed period/ultrasound). taking prenatals and attending regular ob appointments is vital to a healthy pregnancy. for your first question, some people do gain weight a bit faster, you do need to watch what you're eating so you do not gain more than your overall recommended weight. gaining too much weight can cause concern for gestational diabetes and also will increase your likelihood of stretch marks (though still largely determined by genetics, rapid weight gain contributes). also, if you have not been to an ob, you could also be carrying multiples which have their own set of risks. bottom line: please direct your health concerns to your doctor and not just an internet forum.

I don't know how far along i am. i just know that i might be 3 or 4 weeks. i am 5'1", and my normal weight has always been 137 lbs. is that already overweight to start pregnancy? i am very scared of getting really fat. it's my first baby, and getting fat has me scared.

Guest Feb 3, 2015 08:17:22 PM ET

Don't think of it as "getting fat," think of it as making sure you're feeding and growing your baby. your baby will need you to gain weight in order to be healthy. your doctor can tell you what is considered a healthy weight at each stage of your pregnancy. god bless you and your growing baby!

It's considered overweight because of your height. you should weigh between 95 and 115lbs.

I'm 20 weeks. i started at 130 lbs and 5'8". i'm now 162.3. i'm scared that i'm fat. tonight is the first time i felt very attractive and ugly. i'm going to be huge i'm afraid. and yes, all i see are skinny pregos all over. i wear a medium in maternity. i use to be an extra small.

Guest Feb 5, 2015 01:55:42 PM ET

Omg, don't be scared!!!! you will gain what you will gain. it's all going to come off once the baby comes and you are back to looking after your body. i am 5 feet 2 inches, 19 weeks come monday and i am currently 183 lbs lol!! this is my second baby. with my first i got up to a whopping 230lbs. i am a girl that has always been around 130-140lbs. people are going to tell you so many things, but at the end of the day it's all about how you feel and getting a heathly baby! worrying about your weight is no good for you or your baby! just enjoy your pregnancy and do what i did and join weight watchers once you've have the baby!! :)

I'm 24 weeks, and i already gained 20 pounds. my doctor told me that i'm overweight. i have been stressing out so much about it because i don't want to be big after. what should i do?

Guest Feb 9, 2015 12:17:10 AM ET

Don't worry too much about it. as long as you haven't gained more pounds than you are weeks. some of us go through growth spurt periods, and then don't gain much for a few weeks. if you are eating healthy and doing some light exercise you will be just fine! good luck.

When i found out that i was pregnant, i weighed 157 lbs, and now i am at 30 weeks and weigh 142 lbs. is this normal? what's going on?

Guest Feb 9, 2015 10:27:39 AM ET

If you suffered from morning sickeness, you could have lost weight from that. you also need 300 extra calories a day during pregnancy. it's possible that you're eating healthier and maybe not consuming enough calories. if you started out overweight, you could just be slimming down. as long as you are eating healthy and consuming enough calories and your ob says everything is fine, i wouldn't worry!

I am 21 weeks with my first baby, and i only weigh 118 lbs. when i found out i was pregnant, i weighed 111 lbs. i don't even look pregnant. what can i do to gain more weight?

heitzkara Jan 24, 2015 08:39:27 PM ET

You really don't show with your first until about now (20 weeks). your generally gaining 2-4 lbs in weeks 0-12, then 1 lbs each week there after (7 weeks = 7lbs + 2-4 lbs = 9-11 lbs). it sounds like your only a few pounds under, so kick up the protein and make sure to make calories worth it, a.k.a nutrient rich. talk to your doctor, but i am sure your fine! :-)
