How much weight does one gain each month during pregnancy? Is there a safe range for weight gain?

Hello Lata how much weight you should gain depends on what your weight was before conceiving.
Normal weight (BMI- 18.5-24.9) then 11-15 kg throughout the pregnancy
Underweight (BMI less than 18.5) then 12-18 kh
Overweight (BMI 25-29.9) then 6-11 kg
Obese (BMI greater or equal to 30.0) then 5-9 kg
These figures change if one is expecting twin babies
Also weight gain starts from the 2nd trimester and gradually increases in the 3rd trimester!!
