have I gained enough?

I am 20 weeks and have only gained 10 lbs since being pregnant. Of course I couldn't eat very much in the first trimester, but I have been able to eat a lot more, and I am trying to gain some weigh. Haha. I mean, i will probably start gaining a bunch as the baby gets older and my midwives aren't worried and say what I eat is more important than the weight gain. I'm a FTM and don't really know. I weighed 135 before pregnancy and now weigh 145. Its just that this app says I'm underweight, but I eat so much! I feel like I eat a lot and don't think I can eat any more . Stupid question, I just wanted to ask

My app says I'm over weight but my Dr still wants me to gain weight. Everyone's body is different. Don't listen to the app

As long as you are eating , and your midwives don't see your weight as a concern you are fine . I thought I was gaining to much weight because of this app but my doctor said she would like me to gain up to 35 pounds I'm close to it already but if I gain any more I feel like I'm in more pain

I literally only gained 7 pounds. That was 5 pounds of my water uterus and placenta and 2 pounds of baby. I lost 40 pounds. I got down to 82 pounds. Delivered yesterday and I already have a beach body lol. It literally looks like I was never even pregnant. Like I was wearing one of those fake bellies. No joke. You have gained the perfect amount of weight! And the fact that you are able to gain is fantastic. I delivered at 30 weeks 5 days. Keep doing what your doing momma!

Your weight gain sounds perfect to me! Don't listen to this app, its weard about weight! Plus most of the weight gain comes in the third trimester, towards the end!

Until week 20 I didn`t get any weight at all but since I was eating normally my doctor wasn`t concerned.
