Pregnancy, how much weight can you gain in 9 months?

First of all calculate your BMI (BODY MASS INDEX, bmi in English i.e. Body Mass Index) pre-pregnancy

The formula to be applied is:



BMI = weight (kg) / height (m2)

(Example: If you are 1,70 meters tall and weigh 75 kilograms, the BMI value is: 75 / 1,70 ² = 25,9). You can also calculate it online with the mymodernparents.com tool



If your BMI result is:
  • below 18,5 you are UNDERWEIGHT
  • between 18,5 and 24,9 you are STANDARD WEIGHT
  • between 25 and 29,9 you are OVERWEIGHT
  • greater than or equal to 30 you are OBESE

With your personal BMI you can determine how much weight you can gain in the nine months of pregnancy:

If your pre-pregnancy BMI is less than 18,5:



  • The recommended total weight gain is 12,5-18 kilograms. In the second and third trimesters it is recommended to gain weight from 440 to 580 grams per week.

If your pre-pregnancy BMI is between 18,5 and 24,9:

  • The recommended total weight gain is 11,5-16 kilograms. In the second and third trimesters it is recommended to gain weight from 350 to 500 grams per week.

If your pre-pregnancy BMI is between 25 and 29,9:

  • The recommended total weight gain is 7-11,5 kilograms. In the second and third trimesters it is recommended to gain weight from 230 to 330 grams per week.

If your pre-pregnancy BMI is equal to or greater than 30:

  • The recommended total weight gain is 5-9 kilograms. In the second and third trimesters it is recommended to gain weight from 170 to 270 grams per week.
