I'm 15 and i don't know if i'm pregnant or not. i've been getting my period like normal and all pregnancy tests have come back negative but i feel like i am pregnant.. if i am, i'd be around 14 weeks and i've put on 2 kg. what do i do ?

Guest Jul 11, 2017 05:58:31 PM ET

If you think you are 14 weeks along, you should be getting a positive home test by now. you need to make an appointment with your doctor or talk to your parents. don't go through this alone.

This is not a concern for me before i was pregnant. my boobs are huge (7lbs) now more bigger and my booty is nothing but muscle .... muscle weighs more than fat and this is saying i'm overweight. geez!

I was 132 lbs pre pregnancy and i am 170 lbs now, hitting my 40th week. i hope this is all baby weight because i've never gained weight so quickly until now´┐Ż.

Some people's bodies are more primal than others. your body knows that you need an extra cushion to keep your baby safe and healthy. it's nothing to worry about. you have to remember not only is your baby growing but so are all the organs and fluid in your body. congratulations on your pregnancy! enjoy this time and don't worry about the weight gain. i'm sure you'll have no problem with losing it after your beautiful baby is born.

When i first got pregnant i was on a very strict diet, the thinnest i had ever been, i looked awesome. i've always had to watch what i eat since i was 16 because i put weight on so easily and to lose it is a nightmare. normally when i come off the strict diet i have to follow a maintenance plan to make sure that i keep this weight off. after i found out i was pregnant i did not come off the diet the way i normally am supposed to and i ended up gaining 20 pounds my first trimester! my doctor advised me to go on atkins , which is safe for pregnancy. i lost about 6 pounds initially and i haven't gained weight until recently. i am now 27 weeks and have gained a total of 21 pounds which is about on track where i'm supposed to be. i was working out a few days a week but then i ended up spraining my ankle (mild sprain), and now that i'm ready to go back to the gym my sciatic nerve is really acting up and painful. eventually i'll get back to it . everybody's body is different and i think it knows what it needs to do in order for you to grow a healthy baby. i would just go with what your doctor advises you. you seem like you're a healthy person to begin with and you work out regularly so that's great! if your doctor doesn't tell you to keep your weight gain down or to change something i think you'll be fine. mine actually told me that i need to slow my weight gain down ( or maybe my husband told him to say that lol).

Hey ladies...in regards to you athletic mamas, don't worry! i run and am a competitive cyclist and i too gained 10 pounds in the first 16-18 weeks, then it really slowed down. i am gaining very slow in 2nd trimester and it all evens out. i think for us active ladies our bodies put on necessary fat and water retention in the beginning and then it slows down. it evens out. just keep trying your best to stay active and feel good. :-)

I am late to reply, but 10 lbs at 16 weeks is not too much, don't worry. with my previous 2 pregnancies, i had gained 20 pounds at 16 weeks. i'm on my 3rd now, and have gained 10 pounds at 9 weeks, just like clockwork. it is frustrating because i run/jog every day, 4 to 9 miles per day, until the day i deliver. possibly my dramatic weight gain is because my running pace has slowed a lot(pre-pregnancy i run 6:30 to 7:00 minute miles, but now i'm at a 9:00 minute/mile), but i'm still burning 500-1000 calories with each workout. so for me, it seems there is very little i can do to prevent the weight gain.

I'm 5'6" and 161lbs at 37 weeks pregnant. i started off at 126 lbs. this is baby number two. my first just turned a year old in early march. should i be concerned that i am "6 lbs overweight" for what i should be at 37 weeks pregnant?

I am 3 and a half months pregnant and i've gained 1561/2 pounds. i am scared because i don't know where all this weight is coming from or what it means to gain so much :((

Mommaof3 Aug 9, 2017 05:34:50 AM ET

Hun, i gained 110 pounds. i went from 170 to 280. once i had my baby i weighed 165. lost weight my first month breastfeeding, went to 206. my dad has a lot of female family and he told me that the body knows what it's doing for the baby. he's witnessed a lot of pregnancies lol. so as long as you're exercising and eating right and the dr says you're ok it will be ok. i freaked and cried a lot but looking back i'm glad because i had enough padding so laying in the labor bed wasn't so bad.

Just in case there's any bigger girls out there. i started at 277lbs and i'm now 20 weeks and have lost 11lbs. most of this loss happened between week 7 and week 13 where i lost 13lbs mostly due to being off all food. no sickness just constant nausea. i have had no cravings but since week 13 i have put back on 2lbs. none of this is planned i've just tried to make sure i drink a lot of water and eat 3 normal varied meals. except for one occasion where i ate a share pack of popcorn for dinner by myself. not my proudest moment but mmm popcorn haha.
