I'm 32 weeks today and i have only gained 3 - 5ish lbs depending on what day it is. has anyone else had this problem? i like to consider myself overweight because i carry my weight well im a muscular 5'1'' (172 pre preg. 177 now)but my ibm shows obese. has any one else that is around my size had a problem gaining weight? do you(anyone) think i should worry?

Seems like everyone is having problems around 25 weeks. i'm also 8 pounds over than what i'm suppose to be. hopefully my next check up will be good and my doctor won't yell at me.

Dannielle, so you weigh a pound less then you did before you got pregnant. i'd say yes you should be worried. you are not supposed to lose weight while you're pregnant. you should've gained a good 15 lbs by now!

Erica, i wouldn't say your overweight that's a perfect weight for your size it's just what some national american thing says and healthy is what you feel. if you were on a normal weight you'd look too skinny and unhealthy most likely.

Restricting your weight gain during pregnancy is not a good idea. saying, "i'm only going to gain 15 pounds with this pregnancy" is quite dangerous because you're going to be obsessing over counting calories or eating low-fat, low-calorie foods. the best approach is to eat healthy and stay active. if you gain 40 lbs, so be it. i gained over 50 lbs with my first pregnancy and lost it within a year. if you stay strong and active through your pregnancy, it will not be so difficult to lose the weight. if you become inactive, then the challenge will be to rebuild that muscle mass before you can effectively start to lose the weight and get back into shape.

Breastfeeding does make the pounds melt off, thats with a healthy diet. don't overeat, or eat extra fat calories if your breast feeding, listen to your body and eat organic healthy. also, be aware of how birth control pills affect hormones and wieght after giving birth...i suggest no hormones, and get checked after 3 months to ensure you are are at normal prolactin levels for breastfeeding and eating healthy foods that provide the hormones your body needs. also implement an excercise routine with your baby as a wieght...good play time and mommy baby bonding...1 hour daily.

I am 27 weeks along with my third child. at the beginning of my pregnancy i weighed 122 lbs i am currently at 121 lbs. i feel huge but my scale disagrees and am starting to get concerned. i gained around 35 lbs with both my other pregnancies and delivered at only 34 weeks both were 5 lbs at birth. should i be worried????

I am underweight. i was very depressed from a miscarriage and weighed 11 pounds less then i should have, but only 6 pounds under my normal weight. the doctor is counting me as a start off of my normal weight instead of my depressed weight. at first i gained nothing, but now i am 29 weeks and have managed a gain of 19 pounds from my normal weight! i need to gain 9 more pounds to stay on target. every woman is different and i would suggest talking to your doctor about your concerns!

I gained 40 pounds with my last pregnancy and was never able to lose more than 15 of it. it has been awful, trying to lose this weight for the last 2 years and failing over and over again, going from an always-slender person to an overweight one. now i am pregnant again and i will not gain more than 15 pounds. i really urge other pregnant women to be careful about their weight gain because once you put it on, it is very difficult to lose again (and yes, i breastfed for over a year and it is a myth that breastfeeding makes the pounds melt off!!)
