I'm 17 weeks pregnant and 104 pounds I've only gained 2 pounds is this normal?

I'm 17 weeks pregnant and 104 pounds I've only gained 2 pounds is this normal?

Yes: Weight gain early in pregnancy is not and should not be the issue so many people want to make it into. As long as you are eating regularly, taking in good quality food in reasonable quantities and taking a multivitamin (prenatal), I would not worry about weight gain. On the other hand, if you are not eating for whatever reason, that needs to change. If it's nausea, seek your obgyn's help. ...Read more

Call your doctor to discuss your symptoms in detail. They may recommend an evaluation at the hospital or possibly call in medications they help you get sleep and help you hold down fluids. Fyi.
