16wks-my doctor is not satisfied with my wgt gain, only 4-5 lbs so far...is this normal? I am eating, but I have a high metobolism..

I'm 20 weeks pregnant and had only gained about 3 lbs by 16 weeks. I've suddenly put on a bit in the last couple of weeks, have now gained 7 lbs. I wouldn't worry if you're fit and healthy, although I guess doc knows best.

My doctor told me that weighing pregnant women is completely irrelevant now. He has never weighed me on any visit, only measured my stomach and he says that is the best indication of the growth of the baby, weight has nothing to do with it. I wouldn't worry too much, as long as you know you are eating right and getting enough nutrition.

 

Q - January 14

I thought that you were only suppose to gain about 3-4 lbs. during the first trimester.....So, your weight gain would be right on, right???? Anyway, everywhere I have read states that as long as you gain at least 15 lbs. overall, you should be alright. Just make sure you eat healthy. Good Lu!!ck
