  • Maybe 5 pounds with both of my pregnancies. I gain the most weight the end of the 2nd trimester.

  • At the end of my first trimester with this one I actually lost half a pound. Most my weight comes in the thrid.

  • i dont remember, i just know that it's important not to gain too much in the beginning because inevitably you will gain the most in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters, and then once you've gained it you can't really get it off til after you have the baby lol. but sometimes in pregnancies you can gain a gargantuan amount of weight at one of your doctor visits and the next time you go you've only gained like a pound or two, and it can remain stagnant for weeks. just make sure you're drinking enough water and walking as much as you can, other than what you eat this is the best way to stay healthy during your pregnancy. congrats :)

  • None. I do most of my gaining 2nd trimester. A little advice from someone who gained 60 lbs her first pregnancy, take it easy if you can because once that baby is out, it's quite a bit of work to get all that weight off.

  • I gained 15 lbs in the first trimester with my first baby, but with my second one I'm at 23 weeks and have just now gained 15lbs, so I think it is different for everyone. Don't worry about what others did or didn't gain. It is really different for everyone. I gained 50lbs with my first and lost it all within 6 months.
