I am 5th month pregnant and my weight is only 42 kgs and baby bump is also not showing too much

Hey dear, pregnancy weigh fluctuate, dont worry about it! Keep eating healthy

Usually the weight gain is not a concern as lonng as the baby is growing fine. Ans usually some women staft gaining only in the 3rd trimester. Check your bmi,in case you are underweight perhaps you may require better nutrition. My weight started increasing only in the end of 6th month but my doc wasn't worried as my before pergnancy weight was not a concern. 42 seems to me underweight.
I am tagging an expert, she will be able to help better. Don't worry and tkcr. Your gynac will alarm you if anything needs to be done.
