Pregnancy is a time of changes within the body. It is normal to gain some weight during pregnancy due to the growth of the baby, placenta and fluid around the baby (amniotic fluid)..
The amount of weight that you should gain during pregnancy depends on your pre-pregnancy body mass index (BMI). This is your weight (measured) in kilograms divided by your height (measured) in metres squared. You can ask your health practitioner to help you with this, especially if you do not have accurate scales at home.Some women can also lose weight during the first few months, particularly if they have morning sickness, and that is completely natural. But don’t try to lose weight when you’re pregnant as this is not safe for you or your baby.
