  • During your 3rd trimester, you should expect to gain 1 to 2 lbs a week. So 10 is a little more than you want, but it's not something to be overly concerned about if you're a healthy weight to start with.

  • it's a little more than you should but not too much. keep in mind a lot of it is probably just fluid. you have a lot more blood than normal.

  • That sounds about normal to me. At that period during pregnancy, I always had the biggest jump in weight gain!

  • Definitely sounds normal to me. You are still within your weight gain window. Just bring it up with your OB/GYN next time you see him/her.
