This is my 3rd baby and I'm having a hard time gaining weight this time. I have an IBD that contributes to this as well as one of the meds I'm on (which happens to suppress appetite). I also have several dietary restrictions. Didn't have any trouble with gaining in my other pregnancies because with the first I didn't have the disease yet and with the second I didn't have any symptoms and also wasn't on this current medication.
I eat whenever I'm hungry and whatever I can, no junk food (makes me sick).
I am 5'2" and started out at 92lbs. I'm 22 weeks now and 100 lbs.
Fundal height is only measuring 16cm but I'm fairly positive about my ovulation date.
Baby is moving around lots and I found the heart beat with a (non-doppler) stethoscope+amplifier last week.
My main concern is the risk for underweight mamas and preterm labor. I've got some supplies on hand to start taking preventatively at around 29 weeks as well as some things to help stop preterm labor if it starts.
Just really trying not to worry and wondering what others' experiences have been.
