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??

I am 15 weeks and still haven't caught up to the weight gain that I lost during severe morning sickness in my first trimester. The doctor doesn't seem too concerned, but I obviously am. I am still 3lbs under the weight I started at. I'm 5'6 130lbs right now. I can't seem to put on any weight at all, no matter what I eat. I also don't have the appet_te I think most pregnant women do. I know some women would love to be in this position, not gaining much or any weight for that matter, but I'm concerned about my baby's health. Any suggestions on putting on some pounds?

I am 16 weeks too and only gained 2 pounds, the doctor said that the baby is healthy and all looks fine. I wouldnt worry.. as long as you dont "diet" as such, and drink your vitamins, you will be fine. :-)

I am almost 17 weeks, 5'7" and I really don't think I've gained any weight. In fact last time I weighed myself I'd lost 2kg. I was worried that if I hadn't gained any weight my baby wouldn't be growing properly. I'm sure this isn't the case but I can't help getting paranoid and keep thinking I should ask for a scan to make sure everything's ok.
