How much weight has everyone gained so far? I am 12 weeks and had already gained 4 pounds at my last appt., which was over 3 weeks ago. I'm pretty sure I've gained at least 2-3 more pounds since then. What is normal???

I'm almost at 13 wks and I've gained about 6 lbs but I know a lot of it was from when I had morning sickness and eating helped. I ate A LOT and it was a lot of junk and fatty foods and I never got off the couch for like a month except to go to work where I sat all day also. I'm a__suming my weight gain was normal though.

im 10 wks and i cant tell you how much weight ive gained( cause i dont know) but i can sure tell you i have a belly on me. im also bigger on my left side which is freaking me out. alot of woman say this early along you dont show and if you are its gas or somthin but i say shove it. i started out at 118 lbs. i think the thinner you are the sooner you start to notice. of course this doesnt answer your ques. at all im just ventin'. heard someone talking about it and it made me mad. are you guys showing yet?

so far i am only 7 weeks and i haven't gained anything. But with my first pregnancy i gained 11 pounds in my first trimester and this was normal for me. I was a few pounds underweight at the time so i needed the extra pounds. Only four pounds in you first trimester is great. It's a healthy weight gain but it's not alot. I was told about half a pound a week for the first trimester is about right.

Good! I think I am showing, everyone else says they can't tell, but I can. I was small to start, 5'4" and 115 pounds, so maybe that has something to do with it. I bought a bunch of maternity clothes, and they are all still too big, but some of my regular stuff is getting pretty tight. I give it another 3 weeks and I'm sure I'll be maternity bound!!
