  • I think the average is anywhere from 25-25 lb gain.

    I didn't feel my son kick until 24 weeks.

  • you know gain as much as your body wants...those are all averages above
    my mom was 95lbs when she got pregnant with me and 170 at the'll have the chance to lose whatever you gain after so dont try and stay between ranges

  • i was 135 before and got up to 174 by the my baby is 5 mos. old and im about 140...almost back to my prepregnancy weight. one thing ill say though is that walking almost everyday when baby was about 3 mos. helped A LOT

  • i gained right at 23 lbs with my dd and i was 118 prepreggers.
    with this one i was 130 before now i am 20 wks and still only 136 lbs.. but mainly due to the fact that i am all baby and i am still suffering from morning sickness..
    But will DD i felt her at 19 wks and this one i felt at 15 weeks.

  • So far on this pregnancy I have gained 27 pounds. I was 128 when I got pregnant but I'm supposed to weigh 140 so I'm only 15 lbs heavier than I should be lol. Anyways when gaining weight I would say whatever. Its easier for some to lose the weight than others. As for feeling the baby it depends I guess. This being my fourth I felt the baby at like 13 weeks. With my first it was around 20 something weeks.
