I am 23 weeks and have only gained 3lbs total so far and my baby is doing great.  The average person should only gain 17-20 lbs during the whole pregnancy. My Dr said you should only be in taking 300 extra calories a day and its about quality of the food not the quanity. I was worried I wasn't eating enough as well and my Dr told me that I know my body and I know how to grow this baby. You don't want to go over 3-4 hours with out eating at least a snack. I have water and fruit or a granola bar with me all the time. I wasn't super hungry in my first tri either but the further along you get you start to get hungry more often, just be sure to have healthy snacks around you. I wouldn't be too concerned with not gaining weight yet. I know this particular app tells you, you should and some books say the same but ask your Dr and listen to your body.

In all 3 of my pregnancies I did not gain a thing until 24+ weeks. Every one is different and each pregnancy can be different as well. As long as you catch up towards the end you are fine.

I lost weight for first trimester for my first pregnancy which charts said was not good. Then I put on 22kgs in the next 6 months and the chart said it was too much. Then I lost 24 kgs in the next 4 months after having the baby which charts said was too quick. Your weight really barely matters! I don't weigh myself anymore so now the doctors and charts can all just shut their mouths! Anyway your weight sounds really normal to me :)
