    Weight gain in pregnancy differs so much but average amount is 3/4 lbs in first tri.. 1lb per week in 2nd tri.. 3rd tri 8lbs altoghether. That really is text book and not many people are that way. I'm 23+2 and have gained 13lb. 3 in first tri and the rest since.you should gain 25-35lbs on average but if you look at other weight threads on here everyone is so different. Uterus height goes weeks to height from pubic bone so if your 23 weeks you'll be 23cm.. Mines just on my belly button but I think it depends on your height too. I was 8.st 4 pre preg and am now 9.3 .. 5.ft3 in height. Hope that helps!!! Read other threads in the search section, there's no average or norm!!
