i know this question could make me unpopular but is there such a thing as too little weight gain?? dont get me wrong i wasnt and im deffinatly am not now a stick lol
i was a good size 12 when i started and my bmi was spot on when i fell pregnant.
i decided to weigh myself yesterday and checked my mat notes and the difference is only 5lb and from what i read they say i should of put on a fair amount more.ive never thought about it before and baby measured right at last mw app. ive got another mw ap next week but she is only 12 and doesnt seem to know very much so i thought you ladies might have the answer as google will just panick me.

Puddy, I am currently 18 weeks and I thought similar. I have only put on about 6/7lbs in that time. I read that in the first trimester alone you are "supposed" to put on 5-10lbs.
I am safe in the knowledge that I generally do eat quite healthy anyway but my concern was that I have eaten all sorts I wouldnt usually eat (Bread, chocolate, take aways) whilst pregnant.
I assume that if you are generally healthy anyway, perhaps you dont put as much weight on? No idea. Just wanted to say I'm the same x
EDIT: I just did a quick google and came out with this below as a guide:

I'm just over 14 weeks and lost 5 lbs, the sickness is still around and I am also trying to eat healthy so I am not putting any weight on yet. I know I will put on some more later on the pregnancy so I am enjoying the slim days while I can It is nice to be under 10st again ha ha
They do say that you don't need more calories in the first and second trimester and increase your intake in the third trimester by roughly 200/300 per day, which is roughly equal to a couple of toasts or a banana with yoghurt.
