As of 18 weeks I've gained back 2 of the 6 lbs I lost in the first tri. I weigh in tomorrow when I start 19 weeks so I'm probably up more now than that 2. Once I regain what I lost I should put on about 20 more pounds. So a pound a week from here on.
My first pregnancy was 3-5lbs first tri and one lb every week thereafter so I would have had about a 7-10lb gain at this point with my first.
My second was different. I lost 13lbs in the first tri and spent half of my second tri gaining that back. So at this point with #2 I hadn't actually "gained" yet.
How much does your OB/Midwife recommend you gain?

I'm 18 weeks and 3 days and I've gained 11 pounds. With DD I gained 29 pounds and I'm hoping to not gain more than that this time!

I have gained about 7 - 8 pounds so far. I am 16 weeks. No worries about being behind, just make sure you eat healthy and your weight will come as your baby grows. This is my first baby, but I have heard that weight gain is different for every woman. My goal is to gain no more then 33 pounds.

Last I checked about a week ago I had gained about 5.5 pounds. I'm 15 weeks now so I'm sure I've gained another pound or so, especially after Easter dinner

I'm 16.4 weeks and have gained none and I didn't even have morning sickness. I think it's odd but my midwife is pleased so I guess it's okay for now.

I'm 15 weeks and as of this morning, I am down 13 lbs. It mostly came off in January because I started walking again after the holidays. I am definitely eating quite a bit. I gained 50-60 lb with both of my boys, so I am really trying to do better this time.

Ugh, I have gained 11 lbs. It's torment bec I gained less that that with Zakkary. I only gained like 9lbs with him. I did so good the last pregnancy this time things aren't nearly as nice. Perhaps I will make it up in the long run.

Doc said to gain 30 this go round. I have gained 6 according to their scale and 9 according to mine and I have 15.5 weeks. Not too pleased with my scales numbers, but I am not going to worry about it. My body is going to do what it needs to do to produce a healthy baby as long as I am making good choices.

Don't stress...try not to watch the numbers too closely...and just make good choices. As you can see by all the varied responses, NO woman or pregnancy is the same.

I am almost 16 weeks and gained 5, but then lost it. I am back to pre-preg weight now. I'm just hoping that my body knows what it's doing

At 18 weeks, I've gained way more than any of the women posting on here...probably closer to 15 at this point.

I really do think so much of it depends on where we start, weightwise. I'm not sure that comparing ourselves here is the wisest idea, since our bodies were probably all very different to begin with, as well.

I agree with this statement very much! Some may gain very little and others may gain quite a bit, but it really depends on where the pre-preg height and weight & lifestyle started at.
I have only gained 3 lbs, but I am almost 6 ft tall, a runner and don't usually gain very much in all of my pregnancies, so that is probably the reason.
