Weight Gain in 1st Trimester

Is it normal to be gaining weight even in the 1st trimester when your pregnancy is still very early (and small). I just completed week 5 and have already gained a whole kilo. Tried not to eat so much but I'm constantly hungry!!! ?

It’s possible. Do ensure you don’t overeat though, because there will be significant weight gain in the 3rd trimester for baby’s growth. Very tiring for you. Perhaps healthier choices of snacks may help, eg. Apples would be good. Apples have fewer calories, good fibre, and they make you very full quickly.

I was never a breakfast person before this but ever since I got pregnant I always wake up super super hungry so I always have a full breakfast. I think it's because of this additional meal that I'm gaining so fast ☹
