    I am 28 weeks and 1 day and went to the doctors today. I was away in England for 4 weeks during this time and really did a lot of walking and probably worrying too much.

    I am hoping it is the above as I just haven't put any weight on at all despite obviously getting a lot bigger in this time. Could I have lost the weight from somewhere else? The doctor wasn't worried but it is hard not to worry when you should be gaining a pound a week.

    Heard the hearbeat today, that was fine and the tummy measurement was how it should be, 28cm.

    I am worrying for nothing?

    Hi there babsi
    My weight gain was very little and between 24 and 28 weeks, I only gained 1 lb. Sadly it all changed - for some reason, I'm piling on the weight now - diet still the same - don't know where it's all coming from!
    Don't worry - your baby sounds just the right size and heartbeat nice and healthy.
    Emilia xx :D

    Thanks Emilia, that is reassuring to know someone else had the same thing and are fine now. And I actually couldn't find anything much on this searching on google so that in itself is a positive as well.

    I hope everything goes well for you.

    Hi Emilia

    I just wanted to say that I have never gained any weight with any of my pregnancies as a matter of fact I always lost weight including this one and they have all been healthy!!! So I would try not to worry to much!!

    xoxo Ree

    Yip - I don't think we need to worry too much - less to come off after the birth! My one friend here gained 29 kgs. That's about 60lbs........ shockerooney!!!!!!!! :shock:

    I've never gained much weight in any of my pregnancies - bump grows but I lose it everywhere else. So far I've gained 3lbs this time, but with all previous pregnancies I've only gained about 7lbs by the end. I tend to start the pregnancy at size 18 and go home from hospital in size 14, and then put it all on again :( .

    As long as you're feeling healthy and bump is growing as it should be, I wouldn't worry about it.
