New Weight Gain Guidelines for Pregnancy
Once a woman’s pregnant, the guidelines issued yesterday say:
A normal-weight woman, as measured by BMI or body mass index, should gain between 25 and 35 pounds during pregnancy. A normal BMI, a measure of weight for height, is between 18.5 and 24.9.
An overweight woman — BMI 25 to 29.9 — should gain 15 to 25 pounds during pregnancy.
An obese woman — BMI of 30 or higher — should gain 11 to 20 pounds. This marks the first recommendation ever set for women so heavy.
An underweight woman — BMI less than 18.5 — should gain 28 to 40 pounds.
