20weeks and 1day I have gained 8lbs is that alright? or to much?

I went to the OBGYN today and I have gained 8LBS since I first got pregant. Is that an alright weight gain for as fare along as I am?. My obgyn Doc didnt say anything about it sooo I guess its not bad I havnt been tryen to gain a whole bunch because, of my sugar problems it would only make them worse and I am tryen to diet control that.
I just thought I would see if you all thought 8lbs gain was ok for me being 20weeks and 1day along or to much or not enough.
How much have you gained so fare if you are 20weeks and pregant?.

Thanks Guys Take Care

  • I am 19 wks and I have already gained over 20lbs, so I say you are doing fine! You are half of the way there, and probably told to gain 25-35lbs total so you still have gained less than half.

  • Its different for everyone. My first pregnancy, I gained 60-70 by the time he was born and this time Im 25 wks and only gained 9 so far. 2 just in the last couple days lol but I dont think Ill gain anymore than 20-30 this time around.

  • I'll be 20 weeks on Wednesday. I've only gained 3 pounds so far and my Dr said thats fine as long as I'm gaining and everyones healthy. I'm also really active, that may be why you've only gained 8 pounds too.
