While you could Eat. A Guide to Twin Pregnancy Diet and Weight Gain Generally, a weight gain of approximately 35 to 50 pounds is the typical recommendation for a twin pregnancy. And more specifically, 20 to 30 of those pounds by the 20th week. That is roughly about a pound or so a week in the beginning.

What Steps Can You Take to Meet Pregnancy Weight Gain Recommendations? Work with your health care provider on your weight gain goals at the beginning and regularly throughout your pregnancy. Track your pregnancy weight gain at the beginning and regularly throughout pregnancy.

Doctors suggest keeping twin pregnancy weight gain to between 37 to 54 pounds. That’s roughly double the weight gain recommended for singleton pregnancies.

If you are pregnant with twins, your weight gain should be monitored by your health care provider.

Weight gain should increase significantly, but will not double. If you are in the normal weight and BMI category before pregnancy, your weight gain should be about 37-54 pounds. Overweight women will aim for a weight gain of 31-50 pounds. Weight gain depends on a number of factors including height, body type, and pre-pregnancy weight. However, most women who are carrying twins are encouraged to gain 35 to 45 pounds.

Women carrying triplets are advised to gain 50 to 60 pounds. At this time there is not enough information on quadruplets and quintuplets to suggest any guidelines. Weight gain.

If your pre-pregnancy weight was normal, you might be advised to gain somewhere between 37 to 54 pounds over the course of your pregnancy.

There is no assurance that you can control your twins’ weight, but your obstetrician will do their best to advise you on the best possible scenarios you can execute. They may encourage you to eat more, eat less of certain food products, or put you on a strict diet that will benefit you and your babies.

Gaining the right amount of weight can support your babies’ health. For twins, the recommendation is typically 37 to 54 pounds (about 17 to 25 kilograms) for women who have a normal weight before pregnancy. This can typically be accomplished by eating an extra 600 calories a day.

Does this mean that if your practitioner has advised you to gain 35 pounds, and a full-term twin pregnancy is 37 to 38 weeks, you should aim to gain about a pound a week? Ah, if only it were so simple. The fact is that in a multiple pregnancy, each trimester presents its own weighty challenges.
