So many of our readers ask How much Weight should be gained during Pregnancy. Weight gain is always a difficult issue. As a general rule, doctors recommend that you should gain 25 – 35 pounds during pregnancy, and those that are overweight should try to aim for the lower end of that scale. This will help to prevent gestational diabetes and decrease the amount of weight you have to lose after the baby is born.
