I am 15 weeks and 1 day pregnant. I have already gained 15 pounds. I was 140 pre pregnancy and now 155. I am a little tall (5'5 1/2") My appetite is out of this world. I am always hungry. Lately my craving has been peanut butter and banana healthy milkshakes. It's not like I eat like garbage. I eat healthy. It's just I eat a lot and 2 much healthy can be bad lol. Is this amount of weight gain normal for someone 15 weeks pregnant? I look about 5 or 6 months pregnant. But, I guess each pregnancy is different. My doctor does not seem too alarmed by this. But, I was looking for women's opinions who have been pregnant or are currently pregnant. Or advice from an expert.View Thread
I am 15 1/2 weeks pregnant and I'm having some slight spotting that lasted less then a day. Went to the doctor today and said everything looks fine with my baby but he/she is measuring 2 weeks behind. Is this anything to be concerned about? Does this mean Im gonna have a baby with a low birth rate or a preemie or still birth or miscarriage? Please help me out. I recently just felt the baby kick for the first time. This has to be a sign everything is ok right?View Thread
