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.

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.

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 05:17:10 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 03:27:39 PM 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 25, 2015 01:39:27 AM 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! :-)

I'm 5'6" and was 150 lbs before pregnancy, now i am 35 weeks and i am 171 lbs. i gained my weight in the second trimester, the first trimester i lost 2kg then about week 18, i gained 3kgs and then just kept gaining till i reached 171, i have weighed the same since 25weeks (yes i gained all that weight in just 7 weeks). now, my body is not gaining anymore, but i eat the same. everybody is different. i am 35 weeks now and like i said, i weigh the same as i did at 25 weeks. i eat mostly cheese, fruit, nuts, and lean meats i can't seem to eat wheat, but i can eat quinoa, and make up for carbs with frozen yogurt, potato or beans. i am happy with my body and i think it will stay 171 lbs (77kgs) till the end since it seems to have stayed the same weight for 10 weeks now, but baby is still growing and belly getting bigger just legs getting a little slimmer and arms too, i am not big on diets, or depriving myself, and i think we need to all do what feels right for us, and eat lots of good food for the baby and for us. if we gain weight, well, we gain. if we don't, and the baby is doing well, then we are just lucky. i thought i would be over 100kgs by now, judging by how i was gaining in the second trimester. but, no, it just stopped, so i guess some of us gain early on, and some gain later than others, and some just gain all the way through, there is no wrong or right way to gain weight, and no wrong or right body while pregnant. it is just about being healthy for you and the baby, and that’s it. i have been lucky. i just crave frozen yogurt or chocolate sometimes, but not too many other cravings. so, to any expecting mum who is worried about weight gain, unless you are eating nothing but crap all the time, then don't worry your body is just doing what it is programmed to do.

I see so many comments on here saying 'they say a 15 to 25lbs weight gain is ideal'. who are 'they' exactly?? this site, like all the others i've looked at, say 25 to 35 lbs is healthy.

Elizabeth Jan 12, 2015 01:08:16 PM ET

How much weight you should gain is based on your prepregnancy bmi. for women who have a healthy bmi of 18.5 to 24.9 before pregnancy, 25-35 lbs is ideal according to the institute of medicine's weight gain guidelines. underweight women (bmi less than 18.5) should gain 28 to 40 lbs, overweight women (bmi between 25 and 29.9) should gain 15-25 lbs, and obese women (bmi > 30) should gain between 11 and 20 lbs. this calculator is based on these guidelines. granted, bmi does not take into account muscle mass. there are many articles on this site that explain how much weight a woman should gain. i hope this helps!

Guest Jan 12, 2015 03:55:45 PM ET

I'm specifically referring to people who are posting their details that show they have healthy bmi, but still say 15 to 25lbs is ideal. it appears there are some very unhealthy attitudes on here, prioritising their self-image over the health of their unborn child.
