You might start to develop small weight gain early on during pregnancy. Before you know it, the weight starts to add up unexpectedly to unhealthy amounts as you move further along during pregnancy.

Be sure to take a quick moment to learn what a healthy weight gain amount is and how many calories you should consume to remain healthy throughout the pregnancy.

Medlineplus states that you should gain somewhere between 25 and 35 pounds (11.5 to 16 kilograms) during pregnancy. Read more about weight gain during pregnancy and where the weight actually comes from (hint, it’s not just all from baby and fluids).
