I am 8 weeks along and I weighed 135lb before I got preg now I am 140lb and at a stand still but my stomach keeps looking larger. Is this normal for your wieght to stay the same but not your stomach? and about how many weeks along will you start gaining weight and have it start increasing?

It is normal not to gain much weight at first. I gained about 11 lbs by week 18. I began to think I could eat what I want to and gained another 10 lbs by week 28. Right now I am at 35 weeks and have gained 30 lbs. It just all came on at once it seems like. I am hoping to make it to the end without gaining more than 35 lbs. but I know that won't happen. The weight comes on really fast at the end. Hope this helps some.

I'm 37 weeks, and have gained 71 pounds. I was significantly underweight prior to getting pregnant, though. I gained 16 pounds over the course of 3 weeks; that was my largest/fastest weight gain.

I'm 11 weeks and have very little weight if any. I have been eating more and exercising less so I've less muscle and more fat. I think I have a roundness to my belly but I'm not sure if i'm imaging it!

Jill~ You may just reach your goal. At 38 weeks, the weight gain often turns into weight loss of a few pounds. I'm starting my 27th week and have already gained 21lbs, which is a bit scary since I have 13 weeks to go. I can go a week without gaining a pound, then I can gain 4lbs in 1 day. There doesn't appear to be any rhyme or reason to it. :o)
