More importantly than your weight gain is what your eating. Make sure your eating healthy with lots iron, folate, b vit etc....
I personally would set a goal of 6 or 8kgs.

With DS I was actually 2kgs lighter than when I fell pregnant on the day I went to hospital.
So far with this pregnancy I haven't gained anything fingers crossed it stays that way!

I think if you are already overweight, and then you are eating better during pregnancy then it's okay not to put on much as long as you're getting your calories and nutrients.
I had grand plans of not putting on much weight, but pregnancy seems to bring out my old binge eating habits.
I started at 87.5 and I've put on about 15kg, and I'm 27 weeks. I'm feeling pretty despondent about it. It's purely through eating too much chocolate etc.

As long as you are eating healthy you should be ok. I started at 110 and by the end of pregnancy I was 115. I had been really conscious of eating healthy as if I gained more than 5kg I would have had to go and deliver DD in a hospital 6 hours away. The week after I had DD I was 103. I was encouraged to aim to stay the same weight which with bub growing would have ment to lose weight. It's good to aim to not gain heaps if your already starting big. I also walked alot once I found out I was pregnant.

Thanks for this thread Buttoneska! I was wondering this also as my ob has not given me a weight gain target. I was 93kg when I fell pregnant (had gained about 4kg in the two months leading up to falling...too many green curries!) and have gained about 1kg. I am almost 11 weeks pregnant with twins but have been quite sick with morning sickness.
The only thing that helps the sickness is carbs, which is fine at the moment but I don't want eating them to become too much of a habit as I don't want to gain too much.
With twins though, I am supposed to put on a bit more, but no-one can tell me how much.
Thanks for the tips about how much to gain girls
