No Weight Gain So Far During Third Trimester

Mellissa - May 30

Hi everyone... I am just short of 33 weeks and since my 28 week apppointment I have not gained any weight. Actually, today I noticed that I have lost a half pound. I keep reading that weight gain during the third trimester is crucial, and that's when you should gain the most. With my daughter I had already put on 35 pounds by now (i'm 5'1 and started out at 98 lbs with her). With this baby I started out at 115 and am now at 134 (19 lb gain). I feel that I am eating enough (seems like I am ALWAYS eating!) and I can tell my son is getting bigger and bigger, I guess I'm just worried because I've read that not gaining enough during the third trimester can lead to preterm labor and low birthweight babies. has anyone else had this problem, and if so do you have any suggestions on how I can put on some more weight without having to eat a bunch of junk food? Thanks a bunch in advance!!!

Hi Melissa, with my last baby and this one I havent gained or I have lost from 28 - 34 weeks, then gained again. With my last I only gained 7kg total and he was 7lb2oz at 38 weeks. This pregnancy I'm 31 weeks and have gained 5-6 kg. Lost 1/2 kg since 28weeks. I wouldnt worry about it. As long as bubs is active and you're eating, there isnt anything else you can do!

thanks for the response 3babies. i guess i'm just paranoid because with my daughter i gained so much weight and just a__sumed the same would happen with this baby. i am ALOT more active now than i was before though, so that might have something to do with it. I have an apppointment tomorrow so i'm sure i'll find out then that everything is fine. :) thanks again!!
