Hi ladies! This is my first pregnancy but I have gained a exactly 10lbs to the ounce from 4-5 to 4-22. I am only 7 weeks along and have been eating healthy and still exercising. I am not not gaining weight anywhere I normally would other than my belly. Do you feel this could be a sign of twins? Let me know your thoughts.

i am 13 weeks and i gained 10 lbs in the first 3 months very fast! i'm only having one baby lol don't worry some women get their weight fast and hard and don't gain a thing after it all depends i walk every day so i understand what you mean. i spoke with my doctor and they told me its pretty normal. just wait for your first ultrasound they will check then and if you want to know sooner idk if you have one from where you are but we have a tender care that does your first ultrasound for free and much sooner than a doctors office or mine would of been just 3 days ago! that could be an option for you

Your body is freaking out! Pregnancy sends messages to your body to put on weight, and fast. Could be multiples, but could just be normal weight gain. I've had the opposite, I didn't gain at all for a while, 1 or 2 pounds here and there. I'm at 26 weeks, and am catching up a bit with 14 pounds gained.

Weight gain usually accellerates around this time as your baby's primary focus is putting on weight. Between month 1 and 6 of my first pregnancy, I lost 7 lbs. Between month 7 and 9 I gained 30. 30 lbs is an average weight gain during pregnancy, and what you should hope for. I think your gain is pretty normal. As to twins, who can say? But I wouldn't say it is indicative of twins, but a healthy baby putting on some weight in the right places.
