hi, im on my 15 weeks and noticed that i gained about 9 lbs..Just want to know if this is too much?

Hey. I am 19 weeks and have gained 9 pounds. I dont know what is typically normal, but my DR said to gain a lot more...but baby is already 9 ounces :) The What to Expect book says 3-4 pounds during the first trimester, 12-14 pounds during the second (1 pound per week). At 15 weeks you are in your 2nd trimester, so you should be okay...but ask your DR.


great! - November 1

I think you are right on track! Good job!

Hi Jean, I am 19 w and have gained a total of 18 pounds so far. My doctor is not concerned. She expected mine to be high because I have been on bed rest and before that absolutly no excercise. I think you are doing great Jean! Keep up the good work.

I am 19 weeks pregnant and have gained 13 pounds so far. It seems like a lot but my doctor is happy with it.

Jean - I'm 15wks and have gained 9 lbs as well. Seems like we're right on track!

Jean - I'm also 15 weeks (well, about 15 1/2) and I've gained 12 pounds. I'm trying not to get too concerned about it, since I regularly exercise and watch what I eat. Everyone will gain differently. It's hard to go by the books!

I gained nothing by 15 weeks and trust me, THAT messes with your mind. Lol. Now I'm putting it on, 25 weeks and 15 lbs! Everybody really is different. (I was all day sick for 10 weeks. Ugh.) It's so fun to find out what everybody is gaining, tho! :)

everyone gains it at different times. if you gain more in the beginning (you have NOT - don't worry!), it will tamper off. If you gain nothing in the beginning, usually you catch up by the end!

Wow! I wish I was in your shoes! I'm 15 weeks 2 days and I'm just starting to gain my lost weight back slowly. Horrible appet_te changes and mild nausea caused me to lose 5 lbs.+. I still have 2 more lbs. to go to catch up to where I was before. Hopefully, I'll be putting more on soon. That's seems so funny to say, since I'm usually wanting to lose weight (nonpregnant of course)!
