Just depends. All bodies are different.
Im 27 weeks and have gained 35.
I was underweight when I found out I was pregnant though. Now im just regular size with too big of a damn butt.
Just make sure you're eating healthy.
(I know, easier said then done)
I don't eat allll that healthy, but I try.

I'm not really sure. I lose a lot of weight in my first trimester so it's hard to really say how much I gain. With my son I lost 30 then gained back 20. And with my current pregnancy I am 22 weeks and having a girl and lost 20 and have gained back 5 so far. But my normal weight is around 185 so my dr doesn't usually worry about it too much. With my son I was all belly. And with this one it's spread out between my stomach sides and hips :/

Everyone is different, Im 20 wks and lost 12 lbs my first trimester and have only gained 2 back. I'm scared to gain a lot of weight, I was about 60 lbs over weight when I got prego and I don't want to have to work even harder once I have the baby to get in better shape. I work a very active job though, and am starting a prenatal pilates routine today so hopefully I can keep my weight down the next 5 months (:

Everyone is different. Depending on your stsrtin weight, your height and activity level, thats what will determine a healthy weight gain for you. And as long as you're eating healthy that's what matters most. I'm 23 weeks and have gained 10-11 lbs so far. I'm 5'3" and was 120-125 lbs before I got pregnant, and my goal is to keep my weight gain to 25-35 lbs over my entire pregnancy.

31 pounds at 21 weeks is definitely higher than most, but a few different factors will play into role with it. On average you will gain 25-35 pounds through the entire pregnancy if you were at a normal weight pre-pregnancy. Underweight you would gain 35-45 pounds, overweight 10-15 (or it might be 15-20). If your doctor isn't concerned, I would not be.
