Depends on the day but it's either one pound or none. I'm 13 weeks. I'm starting off with extra weight though. Before my pregnancy with DS (summer 2006) I got down to 150 and looked great although 155 was probably more maintainable (5'9"). I was at 163 though when I got pregnant with DS. By the end of my pregnancy, I was at 211 (PIH so lots of swelling). The week I got pregnant this time I was 177 and now I fluctuate between 177 and 178.

I've only gained 2 lbs (13.5 weeks). I had lost around 60 lbs from when dd was born, and was doing great - the month before I got pg, I had lost 10 more. I'm trying to keep healthy, but still get enough calories. We're veg now too, so I'm much more conscious about what I'm eating.

I'm up 10 pounds today at either 19.5 weeks (going by LMP and ovulation date) or 20 weeks going by ultrasound dating. All in my belly - won't be able to see my toes much longer, LOL! 3 pounds of that gain has been in the last two weeks actually.

Happy mama to DD (8-11-05) and DS (6-5-09) and married to my best friend and love of my life since 10-13-01.

I'm down 5 or more pounds now at 17 weeks. I had been up 3 at 12 weeks but my appetite has disappeared and is nowhere to be seen. Some of that is the result of my gall bladder surgery, some of it nausea from pregnancy. I don't mind the weight loss, honestly. I started this pregnancy at 193 and I'm 5'8" so I have it to lose. But I do wish my appetite would return.

I'm 20 weeks and I've gained about 12 or 13 pounds. This is the most I've gained at this point in a pregnancy, so I hope that doesn't mean I'm going to be up a ton by the end. Normally I gain a total of 35-40 lbs, so much more wouldn't be good. Especially since I'm overweight to begin with.

I think I've only gained 12 pounds.

At today's visit, I'd only gained 4. Hooray! That's after two weeks of Christmas break! I was really worried, and for nothing.

YAY!

I'm at 16w, and I've gained less than 5lbs, I think. I won't really know for sure, since my scales are off, and my m/w hasn't weighed me (I don't think they care much. lol). I was average weight before I got pg.
But...that was because no food sounded good at all during my first tri. I expect it to go up a bit faster now that I can actually eat

so, at 14 weeks i had gained 3 lbs. yesterday at my midwife visit, i had lost a pound, leaving my grand total of weight gain at 2 lbs. in 18 weeks :

i am pissed about this, and dissapointed. i have been not eating as much b/c of the heartburn, but at this stage in pregnancy, i should be up at least 8-10 lbs. i'm not even up to my pre preg. weight that i was w/dd. my midwife told me (and i know this as an apprentice) that i needed to be on the fast track to HEALTHY weight gain. i managed to eat a breakfast with 22 grams of protein this morning, and a lunch with about the same. add in a few hanfuls of nuts and i think i'm doing ok so far today. i am taking a supplement for my heartburn since last night and it's helping, so hopefully whe i report back after my next visit, i'll have packed on some pounds.

My midwife doesn't weigh me at all, but judging from using friends' scales I'm still 2 pounds below pre-prego weight, at 19 weeks. But this bub is super duper active and I'm measuring right on schedule.

At 17 weeks (with my first), I've gained 8 pounds. I didn't gain much the first trimester, about 2-3 pounds, but since hitting the second tri I've gained 5 pounds this month! I'm small and short, but still manage to look more chubby than pregnant unless I'm in yoga pants and tight top. Luckily I don't really care.

Yesterday at work, the secretary told me that I looked like I had lost a lot of weight in my face and around my rib cage (she is one of maybe 5 people in the entire world that can say things like this without me getting extremely annoyed). I was curious and dusted off the scale at home that never sees any shadows. Sure enough, I am down 3 pounds since I weighed myself right before my last appt at the end of December. My next appt is January 27.

I can't tell you how excited I would be if my MW would recommend to me that I eat milkshakes!!! I also thought for sure I'd be one of these people that would gain like 80 pounds. Hmmm.

I'm at 17 weeks, and I'm still down 4 lbs from pre-pregnancy weight. My appetite has just recently returned, though, so I expect that to change soon!

shhh, I wouldn't worry. I lost a few pounds in the first trimester, and then between about weeks 16.5 and 19 I got my appetite back and gained 10! I'm 20 weeks now, and show no signs of NOT wanting to !:
