I get asked this question by friends and clients on an almost daily basis… It is literally impossible to say how many kilo’s a woman should or could gain – sorry to say ladies!
Use the below image a a weight gain guide only.

If you are unsure if your current/pre-pregnancy BMI visit for your calculation.
I know this graphic is hard to read and may be blurry but here’s the average weight gain values;
blood 1.5kg, protein fat storage 3.5kg, extra bodily fluids 1.5kg, breasts 0.5kg, baby 3-4kg, placenta 0.5kg, uterus 1kg & amniotic fluid 1kg.
Totalling an “average” weight gain of 10-12kg.
