I'm 19 weeks and this is my first pregnancy. Besides bad sciatica, I have been having a very easy pregnancy. But for some reason, I haven't been gaining very much weight. I'm very small to begin with 5'1" and before pregnancy I was about 115 pounds. Now at 19 weeks, I'm weighing in at 119-120 pounds.
My belly has been growing and I definitely look pregnant. It's just not showing on the scale.
I eat really good food including lots of good fats (avocados, oils, coconut), protein (including meat and dairy), lots of greens and fruit. I've been butter crazy since becoming pregnant and have been eating probably too much cheese.
I eat lots of balanced small meals throughout the day. I also drink plenty of water.
My midwife said that she isn't too concerned yet and wants me to continue to focus on eating healthy food as opposed to eating to gain weight.
Maybe there's nothing to worry about, but because my two previous pregnancies ended in miscarriage, I have tended towards worrying this pregnancy.
Has anyone else had trouble gaining weight? Anyone have any ideas for me?
