Your body will gain what it needs. I'm 26 weeks tomorrow and I've only gained 13 pounds thus far. My doctor always said for me 20-30 pounds was ideal during pregnancy. Anything after can cause complications and/or be tougher to loose after baby. Also a lot of my mommy friends said they gained most of their weight their last month of pregnancy when baby goes faster.

Just remember every pregnancy is different. Some gain less or more than others. I wouldn't worry however if your really concern consult with your doctor. I've gained 20 lbs and I'm 27 Weeks, 3 days and she said I'm fine. Anything between 30- 40 is good
