    Yes, 10 pounds is great! Have you tried a pregnancy weight gain calculator? It may put your mind at rest.

    I am rapidly gaining :( i haven't been consitant with my walking. Up 10 lbs at 17 weeks 3days. Am hoping the last 3 lbs is just water weight lol and will to away by next docs apt.

    That isn't really so bad! I hear that the ideal is 10lbs at 20 weeks. I'm almost 16 weeks and at 7lbs already.

    Thanks. I started in 150s. And 5'5 . So i dnt want to go over 30lb gain. Need to get more excerise in to balance it out.

    3 lbs over is nothing, everyone gains at different pace and that's a guideline only. You'll be fine, I am sure.

    I totally hear you you. I am a little obsessed with staying within the guidelines too but I'm trying to calm down and realize that weight gain won't always be linear. I may gain more than 1 lbs in a week. Today for example I'm up 2lbs from yesterday! That definitely must be water weight, so I'm just doing deep breaths ;)

    I've had this happen to me sometimes during the first tri. I gained like 2-3 pounds in a week. The next week I lost it all and some more... sometimes our bodies act really weird when we're pregnant... Maybe you won't gain at all this week... who knows... GL.

    Thank you!! I appreciate hearing that. Hopefully it levels out over the next week or two.

    Yes, it may just be water retention or something. My weight can change by a couple of pounds from day to day easily, hence why I like to weight more often so that I can identify those abnormal highs.

    I've been losing and gaining the same 3 lbs the entire first trimester (without trying). So I'm basically at the same weight as before I got pregnant. Because I am overweight, I only need to gain 11-15lbs during the entire pregnancy. Now that I am starting to be able to eat a better variety of foods again, I'm focusing on eating as "clean" as possible and keeping up my workouts. Most weeks I get 4 workouts in at orange theory fitness...though I haven't been very good at logging them. I think that has helped a lot.

    It's been comforting to see such wide variation! I am DETERMINED to stay under 30 lbs gained this time around (after gaining 55lbs apiece in my first 2 pregnancies) but am already off to what I thought was a terrible start. I'm 9 weeks now and up 6 lbs. That's not great, but it looks like a lot of people have wonky first trimesters but can get back on track and see things even out later on.

    Is it awful that I'd like to sneak DOWN like 3 lbs for the remainder of my first trimester, which would put me back on track to stay under 30 total if I gain 1 lb a week for second and third trimesters? Putting my levels to losing a half pound a week still allows me to eat 1650, which feels like plenty--do you think it's okay if I do this for the next 5 weeks as long as I keep taking my prenatal vitamins?

    I don't think cutting calories to lose in the first trimester is a good idea. I had a huge jump one week and was a bit ahead of schedule. I just kept my calories slightly above maintenance and worked out 4 days a week. I've been able to slow my weight gain down to 1/2 a pound a week.

    5'3" starting weight on doctor's scale: 130 lbs
    8 weeks: 130
    12 weeks: 132
    16 weeks: 138
    20 weeks: 147
    25 weeks: 150
    28 weeks: 153
    30 weeks: 153
    32 weeks: 156
    34 weeks: 158

    So far: 28 lbs

    I need to stop stuffing my face but I'm super hungry and super active with all the nesting I'm doing. Even a 6lb (water) weight loss from the stomach flu didn't stop me from gaining weight overall. This last stretch in my pregnancies I've gained 11lbs, 10 lbs and 1 lb. Hoping to stay under a 35 lb weight gain (ideally 30 total).

    7w5d and have stayed in the same 4 pound range since finding out at 3w5d. I increased my cals on here to maintenance, I continue to work out 5 days a week, and hope that the weather will start cooperating for walking the dogs nightly. Right now they are walked 3-4 times a week.

    Currently 18.1 weeks along:
    SW: 123 pounds
    Week 7: 124.2 (+1.2)
    Week 9: 125 (+2)
    Week 10: 125 (+2)
    Week 11: 125.4 (+2.4)
    Week 12: 126.4 (+3.4)
    Week 13: 126.8 (+3.8 gained in the first trimester)
    Week 14: 127.8 (+4.8)
    Week 15: 129 (+6)
    Week 16: 128.8 (+5.8)
    Week 17: 129.8 (+6.8)
    Week 18: 131.6 (+8.6)

    I'm ok with my weight gain. I seem to be gaining exactly like when I was pregnant with my son and ended up gaining 25 pounds. And I'm eating a LOT (but exercising as well, which helps I guess)!

    I've gained more than I would like - I was really hoping to stay under 10lbs until 20 weeks but I'm eating healthy and exercising daily so there isn't much I can do! I think the fact that I was MUCH more active before getting pregnant (cycling 150KM a week and weight lifting) may have something to do with it. I don't feel comfortable road cycling while pregnant though.
