I am also 17 weeks and haven't gained anything, i think it is normal from what i can see from the comments below weight gain seems to vary quite dramatically. i lost a couple of pounds at first and have put them back on, now stuck at 55kg (5'2")in a book i read it said lots of women don't gain until week 24, so i am waiting until then. as long as you are eating healthily and your baby is a good size and weight i don't think it matters too much

Sam, to answer your question if your bmi was 30 then you really dont need to gain a lot of weight mine was 31 and i lost 27 lbs the first 5 months and i have gained 10 of it back and im 33 weeks now. your body knows what to do, plus pregnancy is no excuse to over eat or "eat for two" just eat smaller portions more frequently and things will go great!

This is mad, it breaks down weight gain and totals to well over 25 lbs but because i have a bmi of 30 i've been given a target weight gain of 10-18 lbs. so am i supposed to have to lose weight during pregnancy then? my doc says the same thing and it drives me mad!!! how can i only gain 10 lb when i could potentially have a 10 lb baby?!

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.
