let's talk about weight gain! :p


I've been lamenting my huge weight gain (4-5 kilos!! that's 8.8-11 pounds!) in the first trimester but there's good news to be had! It seems that I'm underweight (97-99 lbs) for my height of 5 feet and hence I need to gain more pounds to have a healthy pregnancy. I'm targeting 30 pounds of weight gain and that leaves me around 20 pounds to gain in the next 6 months. Let's just hope I can do it! =) Anyway here's the table of pregnancy weight gain plan that I followed:

Rate your prepregnancy weight (pounds)
