Weight gain during pregnancy is a natural and necessary part of the process. The amount of weight you should aim to gain depends on your pre-pregnancy weight. On average, women with a healthy BMI (between 18.5 and 24.9) are recommended to gain between 11-16 kg (25-35 lbs) throughout their pregnancy. However, every woman's body is different, so it's important to consult with your healthcare provider for personalized advice.
At 30 weeks, gaining around 10kg (22 lbs) falls within the range of what is considered normal for most women. Keep in mind that weight gain can vary from person to person due to factors such as genetics, metabolism, and individual circumstances.
It's important not to focus solely on the number on the scale but rather on maintaining a healthy lifestyle during pregnancy. This includes eating a balanced diet rich in nutrients, staying active with exercises approved by your healthcare provider, and attending regular prenatal check-ups.
If you have concerns about your weight gain or any other aspect of your pregnancy, don't hesitate to reach out to your healthcare provider who can provide guidance and support tailored specifically to you.
