I am 33 weeks and I have gained 16 pounds so far. If there is a problem your doctor will let you know. You start gaining more around 25 weeks, I know that's when I started to gain. I only gained 5 pounds by the time I was 25 weeks.

I was 5 pounds under prepregnancy weight at 16 weeks but that was because I lost 15 due to morning sickness. Everyone is different.

my pregnancy book says 1 lb per month for the first 3 months (up to week 12). and 1 lb per week after that, so

weeks 1-4 = 1 lb total
weeks 5-8 = 2 lb total
weeks 9-12 = 3 lb total
week 13 = 4 lb total
week 14 = 5 lb total
week 15 = 6 lb total
week 16 = 7 lb total

but those are just "guidelines". There is a very wide range of "normal" for pregnancy weight gain. Some people don't gain any weight (usually they start overweight then) and some people gain over 100 lbs during their pregnancy.

A "healthy" total weight gain is usually suggested at about 25-35 lbs, but again .. that's not what happens for everybody.

Don't worry! =D

for example, for me I was really sick until about 17 weeks and I lost a lot of weight. I didn't pass my pre-pregnancy weight until about 22 weeks, but by the end I had gained 36 lbs above my pre-pregnancy weight.
