This is my first pregnancy and I don't want to go overboard with the weight gain, yet I'm not really "watching" what I eat.

I have only gained 3 pounds so far. Does most of the weight gain come at the end of the pregnancy? After the 6 month mark?

My sister said she gained 60 pounds with her second pregnancy and told me to watch out for water weight. But I'm not sure when that usually occurs....

for me, and my two boys, most of the weight gain came after week 20..

Everyone will vary hun so its hard to say. I didn't gain anything with either of my girls until 20 weeks. First one I gained 66lbs(but i had toxemia - I lost 40lbs of that with 2 days of having her) and the last one I gained 30lbs - all gone within a month). This baby I was already up 2lbs at my first appointment at 9 weeks but at my 13 week appointment I was down a 1.5lbs. If you "go by the book" it says you should be at 7-10lbs by 20 weeks and you'll put on the majority of your pregnancy weight after 20 weeks. Some of us will gain 50lbs others will gain 20lbs. Try not stress, all you can do is eat healthy its sorta out of your hands.

It really depends on your body and the pregnancy.

I gained 60 pounds with my dd and was right on track until about halfway through the pregnancy. Then the weight just took off like crazy.
