So what has been your weight gain in the first trimester with multiples?

So far I gained 3 lbs and lost it. I am small to start out with so it has been on my mind as to how much I should gain.

I am probably not a good one to compare to, because I was very big to start with. I actually lost about 7 or so lbs in the first few months and have slowly gained it back. I wasn't actually above my pre-pregnancy weight until about a week ago. I am now about 4 lbs up.

0 didn't gain any weight until I was 23 weeks

Figured I would add that I gained 40-45 pounds total. Not exactly sure as I didn't get weighed my last two weeks.

I'm not a big person and lost 10 lbs in the first trimester. I'd only gained a few by 20 weeks. I gained 35 by the end of my pregnancy at 36w5d.

I am 120lbs (maybe a lb or 2 less before I found out), and I got weighed today and I have gained 4lbs (all in my boobs it seems). I am just over 13 weeks. 3 weeks ago I was 120lbs lol.

I have gained about a pound a week since finding out I was pregnant. So I have gained about 20 pounds in 20 weeks.

I didn't gain much in first trimester b/c I was sicker than a dog! But, by the end of my pregnancy I was up 55ish pounds for triplets. Don't worry, if the weight doesn't come on in the beginning b/c you are sick or whatever. You'll make up for it towards the second and third.
