15 Weeks And No Weight Gain

Confused - February 3

I had my first doctor’s appointment yesterday and I'm 15 weeks. I weighed 125 pre pregnancy and I still weigh 125 now, although I have a bump and I can't even wear all my same clothes because everything’s getting too tight. I asked the doctor how it could be that I hadn't gained anything and still I'm starting to show and she just said that all our bodies a different. I don't understand this at all because most of my friends were guessing that I had gained about 10 lbs. Has anything similar to this happened to anyone else?

No worries mate !!! I AM 14 1/2 weeks. I've only gained 5 lbs, in just one week! Right now your baby weighs pretty much nothing, including the sca it's in. Usually when women start gaining weight it isn't baby weight. A baby only weighs on average 6-8 lbs when born. The placenta and water doesn't weigh much either. So all this weight they tell you to gain is pure FAT !!! Im like you, Im not really showing ( well i dont know how big your bump is ) but my bump isn't really a bump. I think it just depends on how ga__sy and bloated I am that day but my pants are getting tight. I know many women who only gained 10 -15 lbs total during pregnancy. That is fine ! My mom only gained 11lbs with me. I weighed 6 lb 13 oz so the other 5 was healthy weight. There are girls on this forum who like you, haven't gained weight but have a bump. Sometimes it really is just the bloating or your uterus stretching.

I don't remember how much I gained during my first trimester, but I didn't gain hardly any weight through most of my pregnancy... only 20-25 lbs total and I had a healthy 6 lb baby girl. My mom only gained 16 with her first pregnancy, my sister who weighed 6.2 lbs. The doctors weren't worried about either of us. Everyone is different. Your doctor doesn't seem too worried so you shouldn't be either. Just make sure you're eating good healthy foods and drinking lots of water and you'll be fine! It's actually better if you don't gain an excessive amount of weight because only so much of that is the baby... the rest is you. I'm glad I took care of myself during my pregnancy because my daughter is REALLY healthy and I weigh less now than I did when I first got pregnant! I had my body back (minus the abs of course.. they were mush, but mainly flat) a-friggin-month after I had my girl.
