No Weight Gain

Michelle - March 10

I am in my 18th week and when weighed yesterday, the Dr said I did not gain any weight? (under 2 pounds anyway). Is anyone else in my position. I feel like I eat vast amounts of food, but just cannot pack it on? Any advice?

I know exactly how you feel. I can't seem to either. I am really scared about this pregnancy because I had my son at 7 mons, went into labor for my daughter at 6 mons and they said it will be an ongoing pattern unless I gain at least 20lbs. I love my children very much but I dont want another preemie. I eat like a hog, always have. I saw a dietrian who put me on special diets and that didn't help. One thing they did suggest was to drink carnation intant breakfast every morning. Try that, It didn't work for me but hopefully it may for you. If you find anything that works please let me know! Good luck.
