Healthy weight gain is 1-5 pounds during your first trimester. Although every woman's body is different and will carry a baby different.
Average weight gain is 25-35 lbs during pregnancy (for womans weight average pre-pregnancy)
Although, that's according to studies.
I was average weight post pregnancy and i gained a crap ton of weight, also had a medical condition & sometimes had the wrong mind set mentality of "eating for two"
Hope that helps a bit, also talk to your dr if you are concerned with your weight gain throughout pregnancy.
Congrats & good luck!

It's also typical to gain more weight with your second pregnancy.
