Total weight gain is more important than the rate at which you gain.
It is better if it is gradual but different for everyone. Numbers for weight gain are based on studies with best outcomes for mom and babies. Normal weight women should gain about 35-45#. If you're thin before pregnancy, it may be better to gain a little more. If you're overweight, gaining less weight is generally better.
