Yes: In the first trimester, 2-4 pounds is the average weight gain in a person starting at a normal weight. Most weight is gained later in pregnancy. You only need an additional 100-300 calories per day to support a pregnancy.
Dr. Dennis Higginbotham
Obstetrics and Gynecology 30 years experience
Yes: Because of the hormonal affects on the appetite - many women lose weight in the first trimester - they usually begin gaining by about 14 to 16 weeks.

Quite variable: Most women gain about 2-4lbs.During the first trimester and 1 lb./wk from there. Some none, other my lose due to n/v. An average weight woman should gain a total of 25-35 lbs., underweight women 28-40 lbs., and overweight women 15-25 lbs. You don't have to "eat for two", but be sure to eat a variety of nutritious foods. Moderate exercise is also recommended, but talk to your doctor for more info.
