Zero weight gain?

I read that in second trimester we are supposed to gain about 1 lbs per week. I’m 16w now and I haven’t gained any weight since finding out we are pregnant at 4w. Is it concerning? Would affect baby development? My BMI is in the normal range pre-pregnancy.

Girl I'm 19 weeks and have lost 7lbs since ive been pregnant. Everyone is different some people gain some people lose, as long as your doc isn't concerned it's nothing to be concerned about. My sister in law never gained with her last pregnancy she just strictly lost weight and she now has a healthy 2 yr old. Evil but healthy

I'll be 18 weeks soon and have lost 20 lbs 😬 I don't know much because I haven't seen my doctor since I was 12 weeks but things looked good last time

Whether Weight gain or loss is concerning is really individual- unless your doctor is worried I wouldn’t stress - my mom lost a ton of weight bc of hg until 3rd trimester when she gained a lot and I was born same size as my bf who’s mom had exactly standard weight gain… I’ve gained 15-20 lbs and I’m only 20 weeks & 88% of that was weeks 7-9 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️but bc I was jsut slightly underweight before the doctors are not worried at all and even laughed at me when I was concerned about risks of such rapid gain
