Post subject: first tri weight gain
I am at the end of 12 weeks and I have only gained half a pound so far. I just had my 12 week drs appt and he said that was fine but if I don't gain weight from here on out is when he will get worried. I am 5'9" and 142 1/2 lbs, i have an average/slim figure. I eat whenever I am hungry and try to hit all the food groups, I also gave up soda (I used to drink it everyday!) Anyway just wondered if anyone else is worried about the same thing.

my mum was saying to me that if i want to find it easier to shift the baby weight after the birth that i shouldn't gain any weight till im at least around 3 1/2 - 4months. os this right???
i was just going to eat as i usally would, and if i gain weight, at least i'd have the perfect excuse! lol!

i would'nt worry too much. By 22 weeks i had actually lost 21lbs - this was down to severe morning sickness and a healthy change in diet. My midwife assured me the baby was fine and takes what it needs from you first and foremost.
Good luck and i hope you continue to have healthy pregnancies X
