Im not so sure about this! According to this I am 10 lbs under the recomended weight gain! My doctor has told me she would like to see me gain more weight but try as I might I have only been able to gain 1 lb this pregnancy so far! And I am 24 weeks along. I started out at 136 and I weigh 137 right now. I eat pretty healthy like fruit and meat but the baby eats it faster than I can shovel it in it seems! I just dont know what to do to gain weight! I even STOPPED excersising to help keep the lbs on! Not working!!!! Any advice??? P.S my doc told me there are keytones in my urine which happens when your not getting enough to eat... I eat ALL the time! UGH!!!

I Think anything that bases weight gain on BMI is unfair. when I was 21 I was very athletic I danced ballet and jazz, and ran several miles a day. I was a size four, but was 140 pds (BMI is suppose to be higher for atheletes) so my BMI was 30 which means I was obese...please obese at a size four, now my prepregnancy size was an 8 (I had gained 125pds during my first kid and didnt loose the last 15) but since I am older my BMI is 28.5 meaning I am overweight...I don't think a size 8 is overweight! This tool says I have gained to much already (18weeks have gained 10 pds) my doctor says I am doing great.

I am 18 weeks and it says that I am at the exact right weights. This tools I find helps a lot as Dr's wont talk to you about this unless they see a problem so thatnks Baby Corner!

Honestly, you're doctor is the only one who can tell you if your weight gain (or lack there of) is acceptable. Forget about the calculator there is are many things it can't account for. If you have concerns talk to your doctor about them and follow his/her advice.

I am 22 weeks and 5'5"and have gained 12 lbs. and feel good about that! Hoping for that 25-35 range at the end. With my 1st pregnancy I gained 50 lbs!! I ate well just too much and I even went to the GYM until I was about 8 mos. along. I think every pregnancy is different. Your body needs to do what it has to do to grow a baby! For all those ladies who think they have gained too much don't be too hard on yourself. In the end you are growing a healthy baby! Good Luck!

Im 18 weeks in my first pregnancy, and I have gained 15 lbs. My pre-pregnancy weight was 150 and I now weigh 165. Im devistated!!! I am super excited about my baby and I cant wait to meet her, but all the weight gain does have me feeling really down..constantly. I do eat healthy, lots of fruits and veggies. I only drink water other than milk and juice and im starting prenatal yoga. I understand gaining weight is just part of this amazing process and that's ok..but my worry is about after my pregnancy. I don't want to be stuck with tons of weight from my pregnancy, but im not sure how else I can try to prevent excessive weight gain.

Jaci, I wanted to make sure the calculator was working right, so I did the calculation for you using your numbers. It says your BMI is 28, not 28 lbs overweight. According to the calculator you should weight between 166 and 170 lbs. I hope this helps!
