hey, Im due April 23. I havent gained a pound either. I have actually lost 23, the doc hasnt said anything about it so im not concerned I have talked to other people and they say its normal some people loose weight and then gain some of it back when the baby is born. kinda the opposite of whats suppose to happen. Good luck

I'm due in late March and I've actually lost close to 15 pounds. It's normal. My midwife says I'll start gaining here soon and she's not concerned at all. It doesn't affect the baby's growth-- my fundal height (uterine) is above average and my belly is definitely growing. You will probably feel the baby kick around 18 weeks. I felt mine right around then, and some people feel it earlier. I really really started feeling it right before I hit 20 weeks. Since you've already had a baby it'll come sooner for you.

I am 27wks and still down 10lbs from pre-pg...I am still barfing. Baby is measuring great actually a little bit ahead....my doc said after 20wks you should plateau and stop losing...not that you have to gain but you need to stop losing...I am going to the doc wed...we'll see if I gained...I feel HUGE....Don't stress take the cues from your doc...if they worry YOU worry...everyone is different.

due april 27th here. in my 16th week as well and lost about 5 lbs since. it makes sense to me though...i was never a small person, but i have watched everything i have eaten since doc told me i was preggers. all i eat is healthy stuff....chicken, lots of veggies and fruits. water water water, only a little chocolate once and a while. you may be loosing fat and gaining the good stuff :o) doesnt that make sense? it does to me......i would think you dont have to gain a ton of weight just to be healthy. as long as you are eating enough, and eating well i would think you are ok :o)

Has everyone been really sick with morning sickness? I can't believe no ones gained weight. I've gained 8 pd and Im 16 weeks...I eat really healthy and Im scared Im gonna be some fat a** prego girl. I only weighed 114pd/ 5"4 before pregnancy but I never had any morning sickness at all! Should I be worried? My doctor is so breezy I could have gained 20 pd by now and he would have said its normal. Ugh!
