it really depends on the person. Each person gains at a different rate. I have gained about 10lb (I will be 22 weeks tomorrow) while others have gained a lot more. But as a reminder if you are at a normal rate they say about 25-35lb gain, if overweight 15-20lb (sometimes less depending on provider), underweight they want you to gain more but depends on the case. You will tend to gain more weight at the end of your pregnancy as baby gains the bulk of their weight at that time. I would not worry at this point
