So I have the opposite problem of most people, I just can't seem to gain weight. I run a daycare with six children, so I spend 9 to 10 hours a day chasing after six kids in my home, and since the daycare is out of our home, the house has to be spotless at all times, so I spend a few hours after cleaning everything back up. I've had morning sickness my whole pregnancy, and just started to not throw up my food (although nothing still sounds good, but at least its not just coming right back up anymore). I've been trying to force myself to eat more, but just nothing sounds good. My mother keeps telling me I'm going to get sick because the babies going to start taking too much from me, but I've been forcing myself to eat more, and trying not to worry about calories, fat, etc. just eat whatever actually sounds like it will stay down, but I just can't seem to gain weight. Is it really that bad for me and the baby to not be able to gain weight? I asked my doctor and she told me to try to eat more, because its better if I can gain some, but she wasn't too concerned unless I started losing weight. I've been taking half a prenatal (a whole one still comes right back up, but I can manage a half without getting sick usually). I just worry I'm chipping me and the baby by not being able to gain.
