I'm 14 weeks and I've gained like, 4-5 pounds. I think once I progress more, I'll eat more.

17 wks 1 day and the midwife's scale showed I was 4 lbs total gained so far.  Trending with my other babies... I'll pack on the weight at the end.

I'm 16 weeks and I haven't gained any weight yet. But that's normal for me and I know I'll gain a few pounds by the time I'm 20 weeks. All of my pregnancy weight comes in the second half of my pregnancy.

I'm 15 weeks today, and I hadn't been weighing myself since the day we got our bfp because I didn't want to be stressing out about it. As of yesterday I've lost 5 lbs. I don't know if I lost more than that during the 1st trimester, and I'm starting to gain back, or if 5 lb is the entirety of my loss, but I'm a little bit nervous about it. I'm just now starting to be able to eat more than a few bites per meal, and I still have a lot of food aversions. I'm going to see my midwife next week, so I guess she'll say something if I've lost too much. Since this is my first pregnancy I really have no idea what is "normal" for me, or what to expect.

Me and DD, DH, May '15,

I have held steady so far. I am overweight, so I wish I could have started out loosing ike I did with my last. I can hardly eat (had no morning sickness first trimester and then the second I entered second trimester it hit me) But I pack on weight when breastfeeding anyways. With my last I lost 20, gained 30, then gained the entire time I was nursing.

I'm 16w and lost some early on (blehhhh m/s) but I'm still below pre-pg weight now. I have tended to trend up second trimester sorta fast, so maybe again?
I am hungry all the stinking time this week so I have a feeling it's coming. But in the end I try hard not to let low or high bother me... healthy food should be what matters anyways. I rarely step on my scale, I don't like feeling bad about things I can't control. And if ever there was a good time to feel good about good eating, now's it.

Is there a benefit to smooth weight gain vs the way my body does it? Or does it seem to matter too much in the end?
