Becky- I am 5'9 and I weight 140.5 pounds. I started at 143 when I first got pregnant almost 10 weeks ago. I don't have any morning sickness and I eat healthy. I have not gained weight, I actually went down to 139 a few weeks after I found out I was pregnant. The baby seems to be growing and healthy. Is my weight fluctuation ok?

During pregnancy, the goal is to have this nice, slow gradual weekly weight gain throughout the 2nd and 3rd trimester. Some weeks it will be a little more, some a little less. This sounds exactly what is happening to you.
The goal for your weekly weight gain is based on your prepregnancy height and weight. I can share more about this if your share your height and weight.

First of all, great job on your weight!!! I wouldn't worry too much, maybe the extra calories actually worked to help you lose? (sometimes i see that happen to me). I have had weeks where I lost weight (usually closeer to the end, but still. If you are worried, just call your doctor.

Hi, I am now in week 17. The first twelve weeks I only gained 0.5kg (1.1 pounds), which I was happy with as I had been exercising and eating right. Week 13 I gained 0.4kg (1 pound) and so on each week. Week sixteen I only gained 200 grams (1/2 pound) and have not gained anything this week despite it having been easter and I was expecting to have gained extra since I ate a lot. Could there be something wrong? I did start pregnancy overweight by about 10kg (22 pounds). I also thought that yesterday I was looking like I had more of a baby bump, so again was expecting to see weight gain. Can anyone shed light? My next scan is in two weeks so I guess I'll know for sure if everything is okay then, but hopefully there is some reassurance from someone before that or I'll worry.
