If you are of a healthy weight for you hight they recommend between 25-35 lb's. If however you are overweight you should gain a bit less and if you are underweight a bit more. ---Your mother gained double her weight which was probably a bit much but considering she was only 97lb's to start w/, unless she is a very very small person, she probably fit into the "underweight to start w/ so gain extra category."--- Talk to your doc about the optimal amount of weight you should gain as they should be able to give you an estimate for your current weight and hight. Don't worry so much about how big you look as that doesn't exactly mean you've gained a ton or too much -some women just "pop" out in the stomach (I'm 33w and everyone has been telling me I look full term but I've only gained 24-25lb's and all of it is in the stomach -you can't even tell I'm pregnant from the back). Just pay a bit of attention to your overall weight, but don't worry too much as your doc will let you know if they think your weight gain is a problem. Good luck.
