    Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well! I wanted to ask a questions about weight gain. Should you gain one pound a week even in the first trimester? I gained 35 pounds with my son which isn't bad I know... But I didn't eat as healthy as I should have. I want to do better with this pregnancy and only gain about 25 pounds or so. I was only 5 pounds away from my goal weight when I found out I was pregnant with this baby... Which makes me about 5 pounds over weight for my height. Any tips on not gaining too much? As always, thanks so much

    In the first trimester you should only gain around 5lbs. You gain around 1lb a week in the second trimester. Everyone's different!

    wow thats brilliant I think it has a lot to do with size to begin with as well my friend was a size 8 to begin with and only went up one size and could hardly see her bump then another friend was over weight so lost over a stone while pregnant so it varies I m guessing I was slightly overweight for my height but bmi was still 25 so top end off being overweight so dont want to gain too much
