Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

My doctor told me that the average was 3 pounds during the 1st trimester.
I would say the answer to that question is "it depends". If at a healthy body weight to start than 3 to 5 lbs.  If overweight at start than as little as possible.  If you're having twins, well, then that's just a whole different ballgame and you have to pack on the pounds to support your babies.
