I weighed myself the other day and have gained about 10 lbs since early pregnancy. My recommended weight gain for the pregnancy overall is 15-20 lbs., so halfway through I seem to be on target at least not to exceed the recommendation (though I think it's likely I'll be up more than 15 lbs by the end). My question is, is it typical to basically gain at a steady pace during pregnancy, or does weight gain sometimes accelerate in the second half? I know our CL said, in response to my other post about my protruding belly, that the baby's rate of growth usually slows during the 3rd trimester, but that may be slightly different than actual weight gain. On the other hand, I've heard that while appetite often increases during the 2nd and early 3rd trimester, it sometimes decreases in the last month.
I already wanted to drop a few pounds pre-pregnancy, so I definitely would like not to gain more than
