I'm underweight... 113lbs and 5'8" tall... I eat all the time and can't gain weight, hope it's okay and the pregnancy will go well.

My ideal weight is 135. I am 5'5. Don't get me wrong I miss being that tiny. Gained thirty four lbs being on depo. I've had 2 kids since then and pregnant with my third. With my first I gained 46 lbs put me at 215. After she was born I dropped down to 199, couldn't get any lower. I tried. With number 2 I started at 199 and gradually gained until 225, then dropped to 202 after having her. I started at 216 this time. I'm 8 weeks now and have dropped down to 211.6. I don't look more than 160. So I'm not going to complain.

I was 138 originally. But ive lost 7 pounds from vomiting and bad morning sickness. My last pregnancy caused me to get a weak heart so i can only walk. My OB isnt worried about my weight cause i eat healthy and walk four to five times a week. I am now 130

Well apparently I'm overweight. My pre-preggo weight was 155 (bmi 25 -- which is borderline overweight/borderline normal... but the way my OB talks, I feel like I'm an unhealthy bum. I've already gained 15 pounds and I'm only 20.5 weeks. According to math on this page we're supposed to do, I should have gained 5 lbs the first trimester (gained about 7) and then one pound a week after that. So I should've gained 13 lbs by now I guess. I don't know. I want to go back to my college weight of 135. I felt so sexy and confident back then. Now, I feel I'll be overweight after the baby :(
