Answer: It is advisable to measure your weight using the same weighing machine for accurate results. In a healthy pregnancy, an average weight lady gains 11 to 12 kg. weight gain in First trimester is 1 to 2 kgs and second and third trimesters it is 5 to 6 kgs each. Already Overweight women gain less while underweight women gain more in pregnancy By 20 th week you were expected to gain 3 to 4 kgs. Sometimes calorie intake and absorption is less during early pregnancy die to nausea and vomiting. If baby growth is normal there is nothing to worry. Stay hydrated and take a nutritious balanced diet. Monitor your weight using same machine every time you visit your doctor. Hope this information is useful to you.
