For me it is becuase pregnancy changes my body significantly enough that although the baby grows and gains nicely, I lose weight. Therefore I stay almost exactly weight the same throughout the entire pregnancy. (this is my third pregnancy)
I am sure this has something to do with me already being a bit overweight.
My OB's are never worried about it. Some women are like this, and I actually enjoy my body while I am pregnant...partly because of this.
I have a hard time appreciating my body when I am not pregnant
With my DD the day after I gave birth I weighed 15 lbs less than when I got pregnant. Then I got postpartum thyroiditis and gained 20 lbs in 3 weeks! YIKES! (she was 4 lbs 9 oz at 32 weeks)
With DS I was 5 lbs less than prepregnancy. (he was 6 lbs 3 oz full term)
With this prenancy so far I have stayed exactly the same and I expect to do so until the last month when I might gain 5 to 10 lbs.
Every body is different and their bodies react differently to pregnancy.
Personally I don't think my body could handle it if I gained 40 lbs. That would put me up above 200 and I am 5'3"
Does that help?
