  • You are pregnant... you are going to gain. The same thing happened to me. Your weight will fluctuate a lot during the next few months :).

  • If the weight gain continues in such a pattern then your OB might suspect PIH (Pregnancy Induced Hypertension). There is a healthy weight gain per week but when it exceeds certain values then it might signal an issue. As long as your OB did not seem concerned at this moment then I would not worry.
