Depends on the person, but I think most gain at LEAST 20-25 pounds. I know people who have gained 40 or more though.
Talk to your doctor about it. But if you were normal before pregnany, 25-30 pounds is the usual. If you were kind of on the petite side you may need to gain a little more (35-40). If you were chunky, a little less (usually 15-20).
My doctor told me (apparently a "normal" sized female) that 5lbs during the first trimester is pretty common and then about 4lbs per month after that. I'm trying not to gain so much so i set goals to stay healthy and active while pregnant to insure easier birth and easier post delivery weight loss.
