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.

I am pregnant and not gain any weight

2 answers
I am 20 weeks pregant and not gain any weight at all. I have even lost 2 pounds recently. Is this normal?

I hope so, because I've been having the same problem. No bump, no weight gain, nothing. Mind you, I am a few weeks behind you, I'm 17 weeks, but I thought I'd have been massive by now. I guess it just depends on you yourself as to how fast the bump and/or weight gain happens. Hope I helped x
Everyone's different. I am 25 weeks and have actually LOST 3 pounds. With my first daughter, I had already gained 15 pounds by now....I know it's scary though! My little girl weighs 2 pounds and I lost 3?? So strange, but she is measuring perfect, kicks constantly and I figure it's less weight for me to gain in the end. Just wait until the last few 38 weeks I gained 7 pounds in ONE WEEK! Talk about crazy!! :)
