Re: Gained 8 lbs in < 10 weeks!!!
I gained a good bit in my 1st trimester, then it levelled off in my 2nd and 3rd. Guidelines about weight gain are just to give you an idea about what to expect. I can't remember how much I gained those first 2-3 months, but it was more than 10 lbs., probably closer to 20, lol. Anyway, since then I've probably only gained 10-15 more, and that was between weeks 15-34, so it definitely slowed down. My dr never expressed concern about my weight either.
