Thought I'd see if anyone was interested in making a thread about weight gain in pregnancy for those who are curious to see how much everyone else is gaining and when... If you wanna put your actual weight into it go for it.... I don't really want to though.
Thought I'd include my past two pregnancies for comparison.
Was underweight pre-pregnancy
Gained 40lbs overall
at my clinic we have a card that we take to each appointment that charts our bp, urine, blood tests, weight gain etc... This is taken from that chart.
pre-preg - 151 lbs at 5ft 9
8 weeks - 148
13 weeks -155
17 weeks -157
26 weeks - 168
31 weeks -170
33 weeks -179
I've gained about 30 lbs so far... started off gaining real slowly, I've always had a strong metabolism. Now it's like my metabolism has stopped, I haven't changed my diet much, but I do exercise less. I think my body is trying to create fat reserves for breastfeeding. I'm not pleased.

Last pregnancy I gained about 32 pounds altogether but this time I am starting off nearly a whole stone lighter so think I may gain more even though I hope not!! last pregnancy I put quite a lot on in the 1st Tri (constant nausea = constant eating!), not much in 2nd and a bit in 3rd so it all balanced out in the end. xx
Edit - added weights and height (5'7)
1st Pregnancy started at 9 stone 4 and ended up at 11 stone 7
This pregnancy started at 8 stone 6 - same so far.
