How much weight should I gain during my pregnancy?

In order to determine how much weight to gain for a healthy pregnancy, you need to consider your current BMI.

If you are at a normal weight for your height, in other words a BMI between 18.5-24.9, your recommended weight gain is 25-35 pounds.

If you are underweight, a BMI <18.5, your  recommended weight gain is 28-40 pounds.

If you are overweight, which is a BMI> 25-29.9, your recommended weight gain is 15-25 pounds.

If you are obese, which is a BMI>30, your recommended weight gain is 11-20 pounds.
