With my first I was about to have a panic attack because I'd gained 15 pounds by the 20 week mark and everyone told me that was too much and that I'd end up gaining like 60 pounds overall at that rate! I kept hearing the whole 0-5 in the first trimester and then a pound a week after and it worried me.
Well, when I went in to give birth to my daughter at 39 weeks, I had only gained 25 pounds and I walked out of the hospital 15 pounds lighter from water weight.
This pregnancy seems to be going the same way. I'm 20 weeks and up 12-14 pounds (depending of the day lol) and my doctor (a new doctor) is freaking out. I however and not worried at all.
Anyone else tend to gain more in the beginning and still manage to maintain a decent weight gain overall?

I gained very gradually. Both pregnancies I gained about 25-26 lbs. each time. Then after I gave birth I weighed less than before I got pregnant. Unfortunately I gained it all back again :P LOL!
