I gained a bunch in the first trimester, than slowed WAAAAAAY down in the 2nd (ie, the last 4 week appt I hadn't gained anything since the previous appt, but baby is still growing and fundal height was measuring a week ahead - so baby growth is perfectly fine). I started out 50 lbs overweight, so I'm not worried.
Anyway, last preg... I gained 22 lbs in 28 weeks (gained nothing the first trimester, and then gained all of that 22 lbs in the 2nd!). I don't know what I would have gained past that, since I only got to 29w4d, but I'm sure it probably would have still been well within "norms", and the fact that you lost so much so quickly the first preg is really good! I gain weight while bf'ing, so while I lost some of the weight, I never lost all of it and quickly gained alot back. I started out this preg 9 lbs less than what I weighed when I gave birth to DS#1. Ugh. Interestingly, as soon as DS #1 weaned (about 6 weeks ago), that's when my weight gain slowed down so much.
