Howdy. Over the whole of my first pg, I put on a total of 13kg. I didn't start putting on until the middle of the 2nd trimester, I even lost weight at the start!! My obstetrician said that's normal. This time around, I feel that I'm getting a bigger around the waist quicker (I think because the muscles are not as toned like they was first pg - more slack !!) but I haven't put on much weight at all. It fluctuates though. I could be a kilo heavier one week and I've lost it the next. Bodies are so funny!!! Plus, like the other girls have said, every pregnancy is different! I just hope I don't retain fluid like I did last time!!! Felt like a whale!!!!

Good luck with the pregnancy.
