Please dont stress too much about this if you are eating, you seem to be doing fine IMO
Thanks (to everyone)! I'm not at all underweight, but I keep reading everywhere that healthy weight women should gain 25-35 lbs when pregnant, and that not putting on enough weight raises complication risks. I got so paranoid about it. They say you should gain 8-10 lbs by the 20th week, I've hardly even gained half of that. I wonder if the low-weight complications is more in part to poor eating, or if the pounds actually have something to do with it. I figure eating well is what's most important, but I can't help but get worried over it anyway.

I know this is kind of an uncommon complaint. I understand all the posters worried about gaining too much weight, too! Pregnancy is such a journey.

Smoothies does sound like a good idea! More liquids and dairy are always good. I think I'll start trying that
