My cousin is 7 mnths pregnant.She has gained 13 kgs by now.I am 20 weeks running.I have gained only 4kgs.She has told me that this is a very poor wt gain.My baby is perfctly fine as per reports.Is this gain ok??

If your baby is fine please don't worry at all..it is not necessary that if you gain weight the baby will be healthy..I also gained very less but my baby was 3.8 kgs! Please don't stress..

My baby weighs 385gms approx now as per anomaly.

Hey thats fine dear ...if the baby's growth and development is proper nothing to worry ..tc

Weight gain is has nothing to do with baby health.. when baby is perfectly fine then don't worry...; As long baby development is fine weight gain doesn't matter

On the other hand Gaining excess weight can be a reason for trouble later.
Many woman gain weight only in the last trimester. I dint gain any weight until end of 26th week. So chill. And if your reports say normal then why listen to others and get worried.
I created a loy of stress for myself comparing my baby-kicks,weight etc with others and only realized it later that i must not. Have a nice time.

I am 20 weeks running too.. my total weight gain is just 2 kgs. I guess it depends on metabolism too. In 19 weeks scan my baby weighed 300 grams
