I started out pre-pregnancy 5'7" 126 lbs. have been horribly nauseous the whole time, and the month of december dropped down to 104 lbs. finally, my doctor put me on zofran, which helps a bit, but only for a short time after i take it, then nauseous again. i'm in week 19 and around 111 lbs now. so i have gained weight, kind of... bad? good? thoughts? anyone else have this experience?

I'm on my third pregnancy and have lost weight with all 3. about 20 lbs with each. my doctor told me as long as the baby is at a healthy weight, baby is growing on schedule, everything is fine.

I am 26 weeks and have already gained 33 pounds as of a couple days ago. i weighed 110 at 5'2" before i was pregnant. i now weigh 143. is this too much? i'm scared i won't be able to lose it all. why am i gaining so much weight?

It could, more than likely, be water retention. there can be a lot of it. i've lost 10- 15 lbs in the first week after delivering both my kids.

I am 5'1 and gained 45 lbs with my son, but luckily lost it all but the time he was one and now i'm pregnant with baby #2. my baby was almost 9 lbs and healthy.

I am 10 weeks pregnant. i started with 156 pounds and now i am 160. is that normal weight gain?

Kenzie Mar 3, 2018 08:16:29 AM ET

Not typically. but at 10 weeks, you are 3 weeks away from #2 trimester, and they say 2-4 lbs is normal range. but, to me it sounds like you are putting it on a little faster than recommended.

There isn't a normal. it depends on your body's needs. my first pregnancy i gained 10lbs, my first tri but i was 18 and had a six pack . my body needed some storage. lol this pregnancy, i started at 155 (10lbs more than my first as i am now 25 years old) and i actually got really sick and lost all the way down to weighing 142lbs. finally, just now at 21 weeks started to gain a couple pounds but, still under my pre prego weight. long story longer, 4 even pounds in the first tri sounds perfectly fine to me. believe me, it gets extremely low or high and still those baby's are fine. also, at the end of the day if your doc isn't worried and you have done a good job at choosing your obgyn, i would trust them and stop worrying. the stress is bad for baby more than any weight gain.

I am 30 weeks and i'm down 25 scale pounds from when i found out i was pregnant. i have been eating clean and exercising but, my baby is perfect size. if you have fat to lose, it is very possible to lose fat while gaining baby. as long as i am taking in enough calories, i am happy to be getting smaller everywhere but my belly.

I'm 21 weeks and have only gained 2 lbs. i needed to lose weight before i got pregnant and was trying to. i weigh 174 now. but, i walk every day and stay active. 20 weeks, baby weighed 11 ounces. i'm just trying to watch what i eat so i don't gain a ton. as long as i'm being healthy.

I am 118 and i started at 115. i am 21 weeks. i just don't want the baby to be underweight. last week he was measuring ahead but, a couple days less ahead than before. i am jealous of everyone that has gained.

I'm 5'0. i started out at 125 lbs. i'm 24 weeks pregnant, and i've gained 28 pounds? i weigh 153 now. how is that even possible if i've been eating pretty fine? like only a little better than i was pregnant pregnancy.

Guest Nov 10, 2017 02:19:16 PM ET

Don't feel bad! everyone's body is different! my first pregnancy i gained 85 pounds! crazy! and i'm 21 weeks and i've gained 10 pounds so far . don't let it get to you . just look at what you're drinking versus eating .. i noticed that the sweet tea i was drinking had a lot of carbs and calories !
