How should the weight gain be spread during the 9 months of pregnancy?
Health and weight Weight gain spread
During the first quarter, the weight gain is generally minimal, if not negative. Morning sickness can indeed become the most efficient moderator of your appetite in the first 12 weeks.
Most of the weight should be gained during the second quarter of the pregnancy. It is generally considered that approximately 60% of the total weight gain will occur during this period.
The weight gain will generally slow down in the third quarter and be established around 1-1.5kg per month for a woman who started her pregnancy with a normal weight. This quarter will represent about 40% of the total weight gained in the pregnancy.
