My mother is the most petite woman I know at 5′ and 78lbs. She has never been over 100lbs in her life. She had my older sister and I au natural and my younger sister was birthed by emergency cesarean because she had the cord under her arm. The heaviest she ever got was 115-120 and now she is still 80lbs. Don’t worry what others say! 

Do your best to keep yourself healthy and in good baby making shape (no smoking, exercise a little, eating right etc)

andielle:  Same height here. Motherhood maternity and Macy’s for pants. (Macy’s carries motherhood maternity but they seem to have a bigger selection). Gap and Kohls also sell petit. Pink Blush Maternity is my favorite for shirts. Although, xsmall and smalls fit in the beginning for me, I am getting toward the end and the no longer fit. (-this is happening for all brands). I have gained the exact recommended amount of weight.

5’4 and was 130lbs. I looked 6m pregnant the day I delivered a 6lb 12oz baby according to most people who saw me.  My DR said you can usuall expect baby to be a rounds mom size if nothing weird happens and she was right as I was 6lb 11oz. I don’t think you have anything to worry about.

5’2.75 and 105lbs. I just gave birth to a 7lb 10oz baby, and didn’t need a c-section. I gained ~26 lbs. My GP kept telling me I would need one, but my OBGYN told me (and was right) that you can’t judge based on how petite you are. 

I wore my pre-pregnancy jeans throughout my pregnancy (I couldn’t stand the stretchy material on my belly). The only maternity jeans I could find that fit were from Macy’s. 

I just sized up in shirts and dresses if I needed anything new. Luckily the in style clothes where I live are flowy loose tops, so most of my wardrobe worked with my up until close to the end of my third trimester.

I am 5′ and about 95lbs pre pregnancy.  I am pretty tiny and still managed to have 2 healthy pregnancies.  My daughter was 7lbs 10oz and my son was 8lbs 1oz.  I was pretty big towards to ened of my pregnancies and showed pretty quickly but none of that matters once you are holding your little one in your arms!
