@mrshersch74:  I think it varies a lot based on your size, but just in case other people remember (I haven’t had kids) their weight gain, I’m bumping this for you :).

@mrshersch74:  I’m almost 2 months and have only gained 2.5 pounds (with no morning sickness), but I don’t know about the next month…hopefully some girls who are further along can chime in–maybe ask the ladies in the October or November babies threads?

I know it varies pretty widely.  At three months I had gained about 3-4 lbs.  I had no morning sickness but no real appetite.

My SIL had horrible morning sickness and I believe lost around 10 lbs.

I believe I lost weight (I gained at first and lost that and more).

I’m underweight to begin with (5’8″, 115), I didn’t put on any weight my first trimester. (No morning sickness either, and I ate like a pig.)

At 22 weeks I’ve gained about 8 pounds so far.

I think I gained around 5 pounds, I had no morning sickness but I had strong food aversions, so I ate what I could eat, some of that was not the healthiest choice.   Everyone’s body reacts so differently to pregnancy, it’s hard to predict what will happen.

In total, between gaining and losing and gaining again, I ended the first trimester at +3 lbs.  I know in my case, I wasn’t as active as normal because my first trimester was during the cold winter months, so it limited my outdoor active time.

I gained about 5 pounds (with some sickness), but my shape noticably changed.  I got married at 17 weeks pregnant, and luckily I had my dress converted to a corset back.  Between my “girls” getting larger and my waist thickening there was no way I would have been able to fit in my dress otherwise- I would have been short about 4-5 inches.  If this is an option for you I would suggest it, that way you can alleviate the worry.  Good luck!

I blew up and was clearly showing by 8 weeks. I am just at the end of my 1st trimester and have gained 7 pounds. I also went up 2 cup sizes.

@mrshersch74:  I’m just over 13 weeks and have gained between 2 and 4 pounds, depending on the day. I was a normal weight pre-pregnancy. I have went up about a cup size and am just starting to sport a tiny belly (mostly toward the end of the day). My jeans and dress pants still fit but the tighter ones do get a bit uncomfortable towards the end of the day. Good luck on your wedding and congrats on your pregnancy!
