  • I'm at 17 weeks, and I've gained five to seven (it fluctuates). You're only supposed to gain 25-35 lbs if you started out at a healthy weight, which you did. So I'd say you're probably doing okay.

  • You are fine. Just eat healthy and it will happen as it is supposed to. You are still early.

  • Well, I'm 26 and I know i should have gained at least 15. So i think you're fine.. I've only gained 7 pounds.. but my dr isn't happy about it.
    Healthy weight before pregnancy:
    â– 3-5 pounds during the first trimester
    â– Approximately 1-2 pounds per week in the second trimester
    â– Approximately 1-2 pounds per week in the third trimester

  • You are fine. Don't go by statistics. If your Dr isn't worried then you shouldn't be

  • Your fine. I'm 25 weeks and I've only gained 10 pounds. This is my second and with my first I put on about 15 lbs in my 3rd trimester.
