Yes, friends, you've read it right. GAIN weight. My sister is 8-months pregnant and her ob told her that she needs to gain more weight before giving birth because she's underweight. Can you give me some CREATIVE tips here on how to gain weight the safe way? thanks in advance. :)

I am not an expert but I would say things like whole milk will fatten her up and it is good for the baby. If I were her, I would ask the doctor what he would suggest. He will probably have a special diet that will be appropriate for her.

That is NOT what I wrote. The myLot comment software zigged when it should have zagged and repeated my previous comment! what I actually typed in was something like this: I was underweight most of my life and none of the advice well-meaning people offered did the slightest bit of good, but finally I found that drinking soy milk got me up to normal weight in a short time. However, it may not be a good idea for a pregnant woman to drink soy milk, so she should check with her doctor first, as there are many differing opinions on this. Good luck! People do laugh and say they wish they had that problem, but for those who are underweight it is often quite difficult to gain.
