Understanding The Weight Gain Pregnancy Chart

Mar 21, 2008
A new chart scrutinizes excess gain during pregnancy. This weight gain pregnancy chart is prepared based on sufficiency of maternal weight in face of height. This is indicated by a modified table for average frame size of women. The data is taken from a low-income population that is racially-mixed and resides in New York City.

There is a monogram, along with the chart. It is used to determine percentage values of standard mass at different gestational ages. The chart sets up a desirable mass near term. It is equivalent to 120 percent part of standard mass for those women, who had a pre-pregnancy weight either 100 percent of standard gain or lower than that.

For those women, who had pre-pregnancy weight more than 100 per cent of standard, the desirable mass near term differs as per the original weight. However, for those women who had pre-pregnancy weight more than 120 per cent of standard, it includes a least put on of about 7 kg. Those women who obtained or went beyond the body mass near term, equal to 120 percent of standard gain delivered babies with considerably greater mean birth weight than those women who failed to meet this target. These women were from low income populations group residing in the US and Chile.

The average breakdown that is gained during this time is as follows:

Baby 5-7 lbs.
Placenta 1.5 lbs.
Amniotic and Other Fluids 6 lbs.
Increased Blood Volume 4 lbs.
Uterus 2 lbs.
Breasts 2 lbs.
Fat Stores 7 lbs.
Total 15-35 lbs.

Healthy Weight Gain During Pregnancy

There is no standard mass that works for all women. However, as per the chart, the healthy put on is anything between 15-35 pounds (7-16 kg). How much exactly you need to gain during the nine-month phase depends on not one, but many factors.

According to a recent study, underweight women should gain the maximum mass in the healthy range. This amounts to 35 pounds. On the other hand, overweight women should gain the least from this range. This amounts to 15 pounds. For women having healthy pre-pregnancy weight, they need to gain somewhere between 20-25 pounds.
