Weight Gain

How normal is it to not gain weight in the first trimester? I am just about to go into my second trimester (13 weeks along) and my nurse is unhappy with me because at my last appointment, I had lost five pounds. She said they are mostly concerned because I am already slightly underweight for my build and all.. and i had to explain that I have been very, very sick up until this point, which resulted in me being unable to eat. Since then, I have been feeling SO much better, and I've been eating just about everything in sight, but still haven't gained too much weight. I know you usually don't start packing on the pounds immediately, but I'm starting to get concerned too! Any advice?

Re: Weight Gain

as long as you are eating good now i really would not worry about it. i lost like 10pds in my first trimester due to m/s but have started gaining weight now.
when you go back maybe you will have gained some weight and your nurse will feel better.
take care,

I didn't lose weight inmy first tri but I didn't gain any for like 4 months because I felt soooo sick now I am 28 weeks and I have gained 10 pounds. It will come and catch up later, just eat good.

Re: Weight Gain

It is normal because some people are just so sick that they wont gain any weight. I've actually been like this throughout my pregnancy. I gain a couple pds than lose more than I've gained. I've been lucky to hold at like 195 (I wasn't small when I got pregnant) but honestly I've only gained like maybe 3-5 pds throughout the entire thing but my son is growing perfectly fine.

Re: Weight Gain

Im 36 weeks, and I didn't really gain any weight until I was about 5 or more months along. My doctor never seemed concerned since I was small to start with. It's all catching up with me now. I've gained about 22 pounds. I think you are just fine.

Re: Weight Gain

I am 13 weeks and I just put on 1 pound so far due to m/s as well, I am very small and the dr was concerned as well. Seeing as I put on a pound I am going in the right direction. I am eating much better now but still not a huge appetite. Dr wants me on the higher end of the weight gain I am not sure just ho I will manage that but it is possible.
