I have only gained 8 pounds this whole pregnancy. Is that a bad thing?
I was wondering the same thing, I'm in my second trimester and I haven't gained any. I think it is different for every person.
I did not gain my weight until the third trimester, closer towards my sons due date. But my doctor said that each person is different. I have friends that lost weight, that gained a lot of weight, or pretty much after giving birth returned to their normal weight.
Different for everyone, I gained 9 lbs throughout my whole pregnancy. You gain most of your weight at the very end. Keep your appointments, your doc will weigh you every time and let you know if you should be gaining more.
If your doctor doesn't seem concerned then it is probably fine. Average weight gain is just that, an average. You may fall on the low side but your baby is still getting plenty of nutrients from you.
