22 weeks along and no weight gain???

I am 22 weeks and I haven't gained any weight. I lost 3 pounds in the first trimester and gained them back, so I am at my pre-pregnancy weight. My doc doesn't say anything about not gaining. Is this normal with my first one? I am worried that the baby isn't growing properly. I don't know what to do. I don't have morning sickness anymore and I eat whenever I am hungry, what could be wrong with me?

probably nothing. I had no morning sickness and still didn't gain. I was worried too. I've just gained a little (3 lbs) at 19 weeks, and the doc said just to keep eating. He also said that some women, especially thinner women like me don't gain much until 24 weeks or so. Are you taking your vitamins? As long as your doctor hasn't said anything yet, I wouldn't be worried.

Well technically honey then you gained 3 lbs. If you lost them and regained them then that is gaining so congratulations you have gained 3 lbs!! That is just fine too. I have only gained 1lb and I am 16 weeks 2 days. I started to really gain with baby #1 right at about 20-24 weeks. Like 5 lbs too!
