In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
