Don’t worry, I am sure baby is healthy. I was told with my first that it was going to be a HUGE baby at least 9 pounda, but he was only 7 pounds. I have a friend who was tiny with hers and her baby was 8 pounds and 2 weeks early!


I never put on much weight with DS, maybe 5 – 10 pounds at the most. With this pregnancy I have lost 6 pounds but baby is still ok. 


Just focus on a happy healthy baby and stay away from google and take the your huge/ small thing with a grain of salt.

I had some weird fluctuations between 29-33 weeks.  I was up 21 pounds by 29 weeks and then by 33 weeks was only up 20 (ie, I LOST a pound).  I think it was in part because I was bloated, etc. at 29 weeks and 21 pounds wasn’t my true gain at that point.  My doctor wasn’t at all concerned about it – and also, I had an ultrasound and the baby is measuring just fine – on the smaller side 24th percentile – but DH and I are small people.  THey won’t get concerned unless baby is less than 10th percentile.  Good luck and try not to worry!
