Aww, you have a cute bump! About the weight gain thing... I have heard that if you start out weighing less then you are more likely to gain more weight than someone who is heavier. Maybe there is someone else in this forum that has had a baby and started out weighing as much as you that could give you some feedback about their experience. When you see the doctor you could also ask him/her about it.
Anyways, I'm not really sure if I belong in here yet or not but I wanted to leave you some feedback. When I was pregnant with my first I weighed about 115 lbs to begin with, and I gained a lot of weight fast. The doctor said that I was pretty normal because I was so small, and so young. (I was 16 when I got pregnant) I ended up gaining about 55 lbs through my entire pregnancy, but lost most of it fast and was back in my prepregnany clothes by th time I returned to work (six weeks.)
So congrats!! You are going to have a great baby belly!!
When I got pregnant with Kayla, I was 97 pounds to start. I gained a total of 44 pounds, but lost it all pretty easily before getting pregnant this time. I can't remember how fast I gained it, but I believe it was at a pretty steady pace. I think I have gained about 5 pounds so far with this pregnancy. As long as you're eating healthy I wouldn't worry too much about it, but I would schedule a doctor's appointment as soon as you can just to get their opinion.
