I agree with Mylene, at least that's been my experience. With my first I started at 144lbs and ended up gaining well over 60lbs... I was up at least 25lbs by this point and then was gaining several a week and extreme bloating and water retention at the end really added up. With this one I started at 170, I'm up between 10-12lbs (fluctuates every couple of days) so I'm hopeful to keep it around 20-25lbs max since I was already overweight to start with. Average gain is around 30lbs but again that is an average, some women actually LOSE weight when they are pregnant and others gain well over the average... as long as your eating healthy as possible and your doctor hasn't said anything about a rapid gain or loss I'm sure you're just fine for you
