I am in my fifth month, my gynecologist hasn't asked me anything about my weight. As in when I go for my monthly check up she just checks the sono reports, my BP and baby's heartbeat. Is it necessary to keep a check on my weight too?? really worried about it. I have just put on 4kgs.

yes.... you should have a sterdy weight gain.... too excess at a time is not good and too less is also not good. a sterdy weight gain shows that your baby is growing well.

As advised by BabyChakra expert Dr Riddhi Chandarana.

Weight gain of 4 kgs in 5 months is good. mane that's why she didn't say anything. rest it's best to consult and ask your gynaec. All the best ! :)

Dr.Srujana Kona( PT)

Hi, u have gained good weight.Ur BMI is normal.So, 1kg per month is advisable.Overall weight gain during 9 months is 9 to 10 kg..
