I have a slightly high BMI already but according to my scales i have put on 6-7lbs since BFP. I am now 15 weeks. Is that normal? I feel huge. I dont feel like i have been eating that badly either....

As long as you are eating healthily I wouldn't worry, I think 2-3stone in total is normal.

Hi I think the guidance is 7-11 pounds gain throughout the second trimester however this is based on someone eating healthy and being active to reduce maternal weight gain. Each individual is of course very different. The third trimester obviously continues to increase reaching a maximum gain of just under 3 stone - again this depends on many factors.
