I don't think it's true. I gained 43 with my daughter and this time at 37+4 weeks I've only gained 30.

With my first I gained 41, this baby I gained 27. Depending on your pre pregnancy weight you'll know if you are on track. Use this app to tell if you gained too much

Second pregnancy you tend to look pregnant sooner.
Proper weight gain is determined by your pre-pregnancy weight - BMI
The ideal range
18-25% body fat should gain 25-35 pounds
If you are over 30% then you are only recommended to gain 10-15 lbs

I gained 60 lbs with my first. I have never been that big again. I tend to gain more than 25-35 lbs. I average about 45, and I have never had a problem losing it. I really feel like my body knows what it needs, so I try to not overly obsess.

Definitely not true. I am going for my 4th child and I've only gained 19lbs. My second child was 8 lb 14 oz  and only gained 21. As long as u wear a tummy brace u should be fine. So that way air want stay inside u after u give birth.  I am 34 an was 115 lb and ive stayed that weight for my past pregnancies
