Weight gain

I'm 12 almost 13 weeks pregnant. I lost a bunch of weight this past Summe beginning of may weighed 110. When I first got pregnant I was 95 pounds. When I was at my 10 week doctors appointment i weighed 108.6. Went in to wic today and they weighed me at 109 it's been two almost 3 weeks. And I think it's normal. But they insisted that I'm gaining too much weight. And I tried to explain that i probably gained normal body fat back right away. But they said 95 pounds is normal for someone 20 years old at 4'11. Like I guess I need other opinions am I gaining to much weight or us that okay that I gained a little more at the beginning like I gained it n the first and begnning of the second month.

95 pounds at a height of 4'11 is too low. Your goal is around 110-115. That said, a weight gain of 14 pounds in the first trimester is a bit high. In the first weeks there's not much to actually cause weight gain beyond bloating and such. Because you were underweight you would want to gain 35-45 pounds the entire pregnancy and the third trimester is where most of your gain will happen. Just make sure you're eating healthy and drinking lots of water and you should be fine.

If that's what your doctor says, go for it. It's just overall a weight gain of 14 pounds in the first trimester is extremely high. An average for any female (even one carrying multiples) is 1-5 pounds.
