Pregnancy weight gain table

Your pre-pregnancy weight, pre-pregnancy body mass index (BMI), how fast you gain weight in pregnancy and your total pregnancy weight gain all determine the health of your pregnancy and baby. The current guidelines for Gestational Weight Gain (GWG) is calculated from your pre-pregnant body mass index (BMI).
Maternal Fat Stores and Nutrients - You will also gain about 7 pounds of weight that can be attributed to maternal fat and nutrient stores as well as muscle development. Your rate of gaining weight in pregnancy is also very important, as is the total amount of weight gained for a healthy pregnancy.


Consequences of Greater than Normal Pregnancy Weight Gain for Mother and ChildIf your weight gain during pregnancy is greater than the recommended ranges, you will have an increased risk for pregnancy complications. Safety of Intentional Weight Loss during PregnancyYou should not lose weight during pregnancy, because the safety of intentional weight loss among obese women has not be determined. Although the importance of appropriate weight gain is well known, most women gain too little or too much weight during pregnancy.
These complications include, elevated blood pressure, gestational diabetes, complications during giving birth, retaining weight after delivery (with subsequent obesity) as well as an increased risk for unsuccessful breastfeeding.


Instead of losing weight, all pregnant women should use the outlined guidelines for Gestational Weight Gain.
