I am 15 weeks pregnant today and gained 5 lbs- is that normal?
I'm 17 weeks and gained 5. I think average weight gain is 1-5 lbs the first tri, then a pound a week for the next 25/26 weeks.
Last pregnancy I had gained about 5 by 12 weeks, then barely gained for most of the second tri, and only ended up gaining 22 total. Baby was just under 7lbs.
i have my 20 week check up tomorrow, but so far:
weeks 8-12 lost 6lbs
12-16 gained 3
16-20 gained probably another 3lbs
so i really haven't gained anything yet.
I Love my Dave:I've gained 20 pounds already, anyone else out there like me? Is that normal? I feel huge compared to everyone else on this board.
I've gained 20lbs so far, or maybe more since I haven't weighed myself in a week.
I've gained 20... and haven't thought much about it until I see everyone's elses numbers! I was a little underweight to start, so hopefully that doesn't mean that I'm going to gain a lot of weight I can't lose after. I wasn't really sick with this pregnancy, just SO HUNGRY.
I wouldn't worry unless your doctor is worried. Everyone's body is different.
Superzuber:Oh my gosh, all you ladies who have gained next to nothing or nothing are making me feel bad! That combined with the fact that I've just bust out of most of my pants in the last few days. I started out at 5'7" and 130 lbs, now I'm up to 135 lbs at 13 weeks. We're supposed to gain 25-35 lbs and I'm worried I'll go over because I'm so hungry all the time, wasn't that sick in T1, and all I crave is junk food. Vegetables make my stomach turn.
You sound exactly like me (except I'm 5'3" and muscular). I have gained 10 lbs at almost 19 weeks. I wasn't sick at all during the 1st trimester, but I have been absolutely repulsed by vegetables. I'm usually a very healthy eater, but my only cravings are carbs and sweets. If the vegetables have any butter or flavoring other than salt, I can't stomach them. I'm exercising 4-5 times per week, and trying to eat around 1500-2000 calories a day, which my regular diet is around 1200 per day. I'm gaining about a lb per week, which I think is just fine. I wasn't overweight or underweight when I got pregnant, but I was fit. I wouldn't worry or judge yourself against other people. I'm sure not.

Emma arrived at 35 weeks by surprise on June 3rd, 2013!!
My last pregnancy I was about the same at that point. I ended up gaining 50 total officially, but 25 or so was gone before I even made it home from the hospital. I had a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. I did stress over the weight at the time but wish I hadn't, looking back.
I'm almost 17 weeks and I haven't gained any. I try to weight every week just to keep track and some weeks I'm down a few lbs. I was about 20lbs overweight to begn with so I don't stress about it too much. My belly is getting bigger and I eat all the time so I'm sure I'll start gaining here pretty quick.
like pp have said, everyone's different so don't worry. As long as baby is growing that's all tha matters :-)
