The mayo clinic Pregnancy book a nurse friend loaned me says your pre pregnancy weight was a healthy BMI and you should gain 25-35 pounds over the whole pregnancy. Most of the weight should be gained 2nd and 3rd trimester. I think 1-1.5 lbs/ week is the goal for 2nd and 3rd trimester. You actually don't need to eat any more food than normal during the 1st trimester, and only about 300 extra calories per day after that.

Hi, congrats! My sister is 13 weeks so almost out of first trimester. She has gained 1lb so far. This is her first pregnancy. She was already overweight before she got preggo. Personally I think eating better and drinking water is the reason she hasn't gained more. All the best to you and your little one!
