With my first baby I didn’t gain till around my 20-22 week. Way into the second trimester. I actually lost weight in the first due to morning sickness. I gained about 10lbs in my second trimester and about 15 in my 3rd. The third is when you get huge. So enjoy this now!!!!!! =)

P.S. I also didn’t carry my first baby to term so you can expect to gain anywhere from 25-35 lbs between your second and third trimesters depending on your beginning weight.

I lost about 5 pounds my first trimester and then went back to my pre-pregnancy weight during my second trimester(120). By the time I was 23 weeks I had only gained about 5 more pounds. Once I hit about 27 weeks i started packin on the pounds! I hear this is normal for most people. I gained 21 pounds by the time i delivered. Enjoy no weight gain while you can 🙂

@JessicaL: Wow only 21 pounds?! That’s amazing! My mom gained 41 with my brother and 57 with me (but was able to lose all of it each time). It’s so interesting how it is different for everyone, isn’t it?

@crayfish: yea! low weight gain runs in our family 🙂 atleast that’s what we think lol I think alot of it depends on your age when your prego… I was 20 so i still had a high metabolism.

I’m about 14 weeks and the scale at the Dr’s office yesterday showed me at a loss of 18lbs. As long as the baby is fine I’m content with not worrying about gaining the wait- I’m sure it’ll come fast and furrious eventually.

I am week 22 and I have lost almost 20 lbs since pre-preggo. I am losign about a pound a week because i have lost so much appetite. And I have been put on a special diet because they discovered I had a gallstone so mostly leafy greens and chicken for me!

I’m 19 weeks tomorrow and I’ve gained 5 pounds so far. I think it’s normal to lose a few pounds in the first trimester if you have morning sickness or a decrease in appetite. I lost a few pounds early on, but bounced back toward the end of the first trimester.

Well everyone is different. But I gained 10 lbs by 12 weeks! My eating habits hadn’t changed, but I carried alot of watr weight, and it just kept on moving up from there. You’re different than everyone else, so you shouldn’t ever compare pregnancy, or babies to anyone else.

I gained 4lbs in the first trimester and now at 19weeks I’ve gained an additional 10.5lbs. SO I’m a whopping 112.5lbs. LOL.

I started to gain weight noticably around week 12 and it’s been pretty steady so far and I’m 32 weeks now.  I started to “show” pretty quickly bc I think I was a little underweight at the start.  (Pre-pregnancy I was 107 lbs, 5’3″…seems like sooo long ago!)

I didn’t gain until well into my second trimester.  I gained 34 lbs total, but 11 lbs of that was water weight during my bedrest.  (I was a bloated tick!)  I lost that 11 lbs in the first week after I delivered.  I have about 6 lbs to go until my pre-wedding weight (which is lower than my normal weight)… but I’m shooting for my prewedding weight!
