Hi, it’s normal to gain weight in pregnancy, but over weight is unhealthy. It also has a psychological effect. In my last pregnancy, I do my best not to be overweight. I read and searched a lot about that. I only gained 7 KG. I found out that a woman who was average weight before getting pregnant should gain 25 to 35 pounds after becoming pregnant. Please be aware of that.

My dear. You should control your weight. Underweight women should gain 28 to 40 pounds. And overweight women may need to gain only 15 to 25 pounds during pregnancy. I did simple thing which helps me to not gain more weight as I understood my caloric needs and avoided empty calories and unhealthy foods. I took prenatal vitamins and ate frequent, small meals. I did some light exercises. Always check your doctor. He will advise you more.
