Pregnancy Weight Gain Calculator - Pounds : Kilos weight gained when pregnant BMI ajusted - Baby2see.com

I'm actually on track with what they say is average... kinda amazed I don't know how accurate it is on averages, but their recommendations of a pound per week in the second trimester makes me feel better!


Quote:
On a Trimester Basis:

  • First trimester: 1 pound per month ~ (about 4lb) in the first three months.
  • Second trimester: 1 pound per week for the next three months ~ (12 - 14lb) in total.
  • Third trimester: around 1 pound per week ~ (12lb) over the last three months.
But remember, these are average figures for large numbers of women so just because your weight gain pattern is different, it doesn't mean anything is wrong.
Focus should not be so much on how much weight you are gaining
in pregnancy; but how well you are eating in pregnancy!

It is recommended that women should aim for a weight gain related to their pre-pregnancy BMI:
  • If BMI was above 26, you should aim for a weight gain of between 15 and 25lb (7 and 11.5kg).
  • If BMI was between 20 and 26, you should aim for a weight gain of 25 to 35lb (11.5 to 16kg).
  • If BMI was less than 20, you should aim for a weight gain of 28 to 40lb (12.5 to 18kg).

that pound per week makes me feel better too! I knew it was a pound per week in the 3rd, but I didn't think it was the 2nd too and I was upset at myself.

I'm a little under what they say I should be at, but I've gained all my weight in the past month or so, so I expect to catch up.

I'm still 16 pounds down from my 3 week pregnancy weight., I was 178 at the ER that night and at my last appt I was 162....so that would be a big fat no.......

No, I'm below. I don't expect to end up where they say I will at 40 weeks either. God I hope not. I will see some viscious numbers that I never wanted to see in my life if I do.

I've pretty much followed the pattern I guess. If I gain 1 pound a week for the rest of my pregnancy I'll end up at 33 lbs total. Not too bad!

Hmm... that calculator is supposed to work for twins. Underneath where you put your height and weight, there's a drop down that asks if you are expecting twins or not. I picked that one to post because it did have twins listed. Sorry!

I honestly have no idea because I don't weigh myself and I don't own a scale. They do weigh me at my appts though and at this point in my pregnancy I've only gained a total of 7 lbs. I wonder how much I'll be up at my May 2nd appt.

According to this index I was underweight before I got pregnant (although I don't think that is right..hmm).

Anyways I was 120lbs, and 2 weeks ago I was 133lbs. This says I should be around 140-142lbs. So, unless I gained 10lbs the last 2 weeks (which is very possible lol) then I will match it. If not, then I am still underweight, but I have gained 13lbs.

No not even close! LOL With london I put a total of 14lbs on (1 lb short of the minimum for my BMI at the time my goal was- 15-25lbs). This time I should be in 25-35lbs group since I lost wt post baby thanks to BFing.... ..I may make it by the end but so far at 24 weeks i'm up 1lb (which is more than last time at this time! LOL). So I would need 2lbs per week from here out to make my recommendation this time.

You're right on target with 14lbs Ro. 4lbs for the first 13 weeks then 1lb a week from weeks 13-25 = 12lbs. That's a total of 16lbs.
