    I didn’t start gaining until after my 15th week and then it was about a pound a week.  I even lost a pound one week during my final month!  Gained 23 pounds total.

    I’m 13+3, and I’m down 6lbs from my starting weight of 132. We’ll see how the second trimester goes!

    I remember between my May and June midwife visits, I gained 8 pounds.  That was toward the end of my second trimester (weeks 24 to 29, I believe).  Then in the subsequent two months since June I gained about 10 pounds.

    But it’s different for everyone!

    I am only 25w but I gained about 5 lbs in the first trimester, and have gained about 12 this trimester so far… definitely found I’m growing / gaining much quicker and have spurts of insatiable hunger that lasts for days…!

    Ok I had a weird first trimester and had to eat constantly to not feel sick, so I actually gained I think 8-10 pounds total in my first trimester.  It didn’t help that I had gone on two vacations in that time either.  I’m 19 weeks now and have lost 3 pounds since my last visit.  So we’ll see what happens the rest of the time.

    Second trimester is definitely the winner!  Between each visit(which is 4 weeks) I would gain about 6 pounds.  And now that we are at the end(due in 10 days!) than the weight gain has slowed.  We are on weekly visits and there has been two times that my weight has stayed the same.  I’ve already gained close to 40 pounds, all in the belly, so I know baby is ok.

    @Daisyb:  I’m 32 weeks currently. I didn’t gain any weight in my first trimester and about 9lbs in my 2nd. Once I hit 7 months, I started seriously gaining. I went from being up about 9lbs to now being up probably 25, maybe 30. I haven’t stepped on a scale since I was up 24lbs and really don’t even want to know. I’m hungry all. the. time, so it’s really hard to not gain. I can’t exercise like normal people, either, bc I have chronic knee/wrist problems that keep me from doing most exercises. I really wanted to only gain 25ish pounds total, but now I’m just hoping to keep it under 35, or God forbid, 40! It’s tough!

    I didn’t gain any in the first trimester and I hardly gained any in the third ( maybe 5 pounds? Not much). I gained most of my 23 pounds in the second.

    with my first pregnancy I lost 10lbs in first trimester, gained about 25 in second, and the third one was terrible, I gained about 35lbs in 3rd trimester.

    Yeah. I foolishly thought I can eat whatever I like. I never lost the weight so when I got pregnant again I was obese already.

    My second pregnancy, I lost 15lbs in the first 2 trimesters, then gained about 25lbs in my third. 

    My third pregnancy  I lost 15lbs in the first 2 and then gained about 20lbs in the last trimester.

    Now I am finaly loosing weight and am about 30lbs away form my pre-pregnancies weight.
