How much weight does a pregnant woman put on in the first trimester?

Last Update: 05/11/2022

In the first trimester of pregnancy, some pregnant women hardly gain any weight, while others may gain about 2 kg ( 4lb 6 oz).

The typical nausea of the first trimester and the small size of the baby mean that the weight that the pregnant woman gains in these first weeks of pregnancy is not very much.

Therefore, not putting on much weight in the first trimester of pregnancy may be normal. However, if you have any doubts or concerns, it is always best to consult a specialist.
