Normal weight gain during pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Normal weight gain during pregnancy


Avatar f tn This also depends on your pre preg weight. If you were under weight you should gain about 30. Normal weight about 25 and over weight about 20. Gaining 80 is dangerous tho and they should not be a doc lol. Gaining 40 is excessive even but many women do.
Avatar n tn When I went in for my first ob appointment at 11 weeks (I had been released from the fertility clinic at 9 weeks), I was told that due to my weight, I SHOULD NOT gain the normal 20-30 lbs in pregnancy weight. When I went in for my 16 week checkup earlier today, I had only gained 1lb & the dr said "good, you only gained 1lb".

1004712 tn?1263397548 There are recommended ranges for weight gain during pregnancy and these depend on whether you are under weight, within a "normal' weight range, or overweight to begin with (and to know this your height has to be factored in).

1083673 tn?1388892238 I was just wondering when was about the average time for women to start gaining weight with pregnancy. And how much. I am in week 5 of pregnancy and wanted to know how much weight was normal to gain in pregnancy this early. I would really apreciate some answers.
Avatar f tn If someone was unsure about pregnancy, and weight gain is a common sign for pregnant women, about how early does the weight gain start? Weight gain meaning some noticeable pants not fitting, seeing it the mirror, etc...? Also, what happens if you take a pregnancy test but you get no result. Literally. Like nothing comes on the result screen even if you took one or two tests?
1110105 tn?1273297933 I've gained between 0 and 5 pounds - i am overweight to begin with, but the doctor told me that I will gain the same amount of weight during pregnancy that a smaller woman would. I also started taking wellbutrin, which causes a little weight loss. who knows. my cousin gained 9 pounds during her first pregnancy but my neighbor gained almost 80. lol i guess it has alot to do with your diet and exercise habits before pregnancy. My first pregnancy i was only 20 pounds heavier on my popping day lol.
Avatar f tn 25-35 is healthy for a normal weight woman to gain during pregnancy so i think i will be fine if i stay around that. thanks everyone.
666089 tn?1260523861 someone under weight should gain about 45 pounds during pregnancy, someone just right should gain about 35, and someone overweight should gain about 25. That's all depending on your hieght and everything compared to your weight but you should try to find out where you stand and go from there. I'm actually overweight.
Avatar f tn No hun it's normal. Not all women gain alot of weight during pregnancy. For example im 35+1 and have lost weight. Im still 6 lbs under my prepregnancy weight. Baby girl is healthy and growing just fine. Stop worrying. Good luck!!!
Avatar f tn As long as your dr has no concern you should be fine. Everyone has different weight issues during pregnancy.

Avatar f tn My doctor told me that so many women think they HAVE to gain so-so weight during pregnancy. But he said if you're eating healthy and the baby is growing, there is nothing to worry about! I'm 25 weeks today and have only gained about 5 pounds.
Avatar f tn I am 31 weeks and have only gained 1.5 lbs from pre-pregnancy weight. During this pregnancy I've been sick a lot. Since I am overweight my docs don't want me to gain a lot of weight anyway. This app doesn't account for everyone's personal medical circumstances (overweight/underweight).
