I'm 16 weeks and I've only gained 2 pounds.I've been worrying that that's not average.I'm only 5"1 .... so I'm pretty small.Does that seem like it's not enough weight to have gained for 16 weeks??

Josie I am 16 weeks pregnant, 5' 7" and I've actually lost a few pounds. I was and still am quite concerned about this as I didn't think it was normal. I'm just going to wait till the end of Feb though till I go for my 20wk scan and hope that everything is ok. Good luck!

Your weight gain is fine, I actually lost weight when I got pregnant. Most of the time, u gain the most weight in the second and third trimester. I'm at 32 weeks and have gained 14 pounds in all, and my midwife says that just fine. Don't worry about it, and if you have more questions ask your midwife or doctor.

Is this your first baby? If so I'm having my first and if you think that's bad I am 23 wks and still havent gained a lb even. My baby weighs 14oz, dr says babys fine and healthy, but there is still that concern you know? Well I guess we won't have trouble losing it later huh? ha ha good luck and don't worry!!

my mom said that when she had me she didn't show till she was 6 months and she's 5'0. if you're real concerned, ask your doctor, but as far as i'm concerned you seem fine. consider yourself lucky, i'm 8 weeks and can't fit into my d__n pants!
