  • You are gaining too much weight too quickly if you are pregnant with only one baby, the average is 25 to 30 pounds during the pregnancy. Sorry :)

  • I think that's pretty normal. You're supposed to gain anywhere from 15-35 lbs while you're pregnant and since you're you're almost halfway through that seems about right. I gained 30 lbs while I was pregnant.

    Here's a link from WebMD:

  • In my first pregnancy, I gained 15 pounds in each trimester. As long as your doctor says you're not gaining too much, you should be fine.

  • I've gained about 20 pounds total and I'm just about 19 wks. Each women gains at different rates. I woudn't worry, if you're eating right and excersising you have nothing to be concerned about.
    I was worried at first but, I really didn't gain much through the months, only 3 pounds, which is normal. good luck to you!
