Q:

I am 18 weeks and 4 days pregnant and not gaining weight. Is that normal? I eat every 2 hours but still no sign of weight gain.



Eat small and healthy. Weight gain won't happen till end of second and third trimesters. I have gained 3 kgs till now, and bout; to end the second trimester. If your foetal weight is fine, don't stress.

That should not be a problem if baby weight is fine.

Go by what Moms advised. Also sharing a collection of articles u just read. Pregnancy Must-Know

Most of the weight gain happens during the last trimester. I hardly gained weight but my baby was 3.8 kgs. So if everything is fine with the baby don't stress.
