Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Every woman is different.  Don't take to heart what you read on your week-by-week updates saying that you should have gained X pounds by now.
every woman is different, i am on my 29 weeks and i have not gain anything, the same thing happen during my first child too. the doctor told me am ok and the baby is ok too. don't worry yrs is still better.
I Just started to gain weight when i was about 24 weeks, im now 29 weeks and i have gain like 11pounds.
Everyone is different.  As long as your doctor isn't concerned then you shouldn't be either.  You'll probably start to gain more as your pregnancy progresses and you may just be one of the women blessed with a smaller frame that carries a beautiful, healthy baby while not gaining a lot.  I'm not one of them, so I'm jealous - just kidding!  Eat healthy, take your vitamins and stay hydrated and you & baby should be just fine.  :)
