Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
It really depends on your body and how you are feeling. If you have morning sickness, you probably won't gain, maybe even lose, in the first 12-16 weeks.
For me, I didn't have morning sickness (headahces and migraines instead!)...I started gaining right away, showing at like 2 months, and ended up gaining 50 pounds! Ick.
I didn't start gaining weight until I was about 25weeks pregnant and I was gaining very slowly but then at 36weeks until 42weeks when I delivered that's when I gained most of my weight. I did a pregnant fitness class and they don't let you do it after 32weeks so maybe that's why I gained it all at the end? I don't know but now, I am down to my pre-pregnancy weight but I have some extra "mommy stuff" in the middle so I am not in the same pre-pregnancy size.
I am in the same boat... I started out a 10 lbs overweight so my OB wants me to gain the minimum amount.
At 20 weeks I had only gained 4 pounds -- yay for me!
Since then, I have gained 4 more pounds. It seems like I am going up a pound every week.
It's hard because I have been having serious cravings lately!! I just got absolutely ravenous at about 22 weeks.
