How to Gain Weight During Pregnancy


Eat More Frequently

If your stomach is squashed, you can't add extra calories to your meals without feeling ill. Eat smaller, but more frequent meals.

Carry Food With You

To help you snack throughout the day, try packing some food with you. Fruit makes a perfect snack, and yogurt or cheese with fruit tastes great.

Drink Your Calories

If you are having trouble eating or getting in calories during the day, consider drinking higher-calorie beverages. Prepare and take a smoothie with you and sip it throughout the day.

How Much Weight Should You Gain?

Generally speaking, it's recommended that women gain 25 to 35 pounds during pregnancy. If you are expecting multiples, you will need to gain more weight.

Don't Abandon a Healthy Diet

Studies show that underweight pregnant individuals are more likely to reach the optimal pregnancy weight by following a healthy diet.

If you are concerned about your lack of weight gain during pregnancy, consult your midwife or doctor who can help you devise an effective eating plan to reach your goals.
