Considering normal weight gain can be between 25 and 35 pounds, you still have at least 10 pounds to go. With only 5 weeks to go, I'm sure you'll be fine.

I wouldn't worry. My friend is currently expecting her 4th and all of her previous ones she's lost up to 60-75 lbs DURING each pregnancy. (same issue- morning sickness). I have gained 30 and I'm 34 weeks. It just depends on your body/height/starting weight/genetic make-up... too many variants. They'll let you know if there are any concerns for your baby.

Hi Revel! I had severe morning sickness for the first 6 months and also lost a lot of weight. I am now 33 weeks and I have only put on 10 pounds. My doctor is fine with this. Before I got pregnant I ate whatever I wanted and I never gained weight. And it's been the same way since I've been pregnant. My doctor said what is normal before I got pregnant is normal while I'm pregnant. So, I wouldn't be worried at all. Your doctor will let you know if there is need for concern.

you shouldn't give a 1st or 2nd thought to weight gain. So what if you only gain less han 20 lbs. That doesn't mean anything. It all depends on your body and has nothing to do with a healthy pregnancy. And since every woman is built differently we all gain different amounts in different places. As long as your not gaining an unecessary obese amount which affects you really....not your pregnancy. The more fat you put on the harder you have to work at getting it off.
