    Im just gone 13 weeks and a little concerned that I haven't put any weight on yet. My tummy is a little bigger, but nothing noticable, and on the scales I haven't gained any weight. How much weight, if any, should I have gained in the first trimester. Also does the 2nd tri start at 13 or 14 weeks coz Iv read different things.

    I have put on about 4lb so far, but everyone is different. Some people lose weight during the first trimester. Have you been suffering badly from morning sickness?

    I think the average weight gain in the 1st trimester is 2-4 lbs...But as Rosieroo said some people are so sick they lose weight...I lost 4 then put on 3...Then I had no weight gain at all until 2 weeks ago...I have gained 7 lbs total so far...I was concerned about 7 lbs being too little for being 21 weeks but my dr isnt concerned so I have decided not to worry about it either...

    A stone is 14lbs.

    And for anyone who happens to be using a measuring system that is as recent as the 18th century :), that's around 6.4kg.

    Alsha, my ticker is slightly out and were about the same about along and have gained exactly one stone.

    Thank you joan, you have just answered the question I had last night. My pregnancy book says that the average weight gain by 27 weeks is 8-10kg and I didn't know how many lbs are in a kg. Knowing that I now feel rather happy as Im about right!
    Hurrah, not as much of a blimp as I thought!

    Hi

    I'm just about 14 weeks and have had no weight gain. In fact - I've lost 8 lbs. Spoke to a specialist - not to worry - said that one should only gain about 6-8 lbs in first 20 weeks. I'm healthy, baby is great and full of beans. The weight I have lost was extra weight anyway. I'm not a big person, but glad to be rid of those few pounds - mainly due to my extreme nausea which is still pestering me. Eating, but with difficulty!!!
    Good luck and don't worry
    Kind Regards
    Emilia

    I've put on more than 1 and a half stone and am only 23 weeks!!!!! Saw my midwife this morning so mentioned this to her as I was a little worried, but she's not concerned - I gave up smoking in January so was possibly a little underweight to begin with, and I think I would have put on at least half a stone anyway if I hadn't fallen pregnant as you do when you give up smoking. I've filled out a little but am not looking tubbier around the arms/legs/face or anything.

    Anyway it goes to show - everyone is different!!!
