Reasons for weight gain during pregnancy

There are various reasons women gain weight during pregnancy and many different body areas where they gain it.

First, of course, is the baby itself! Then there are the changes to your body that support your pregnancy and what will happen after childbirth. You gain fat, which your body is going to use to store nutrients for breastfeeding; your breasts increase (and this is also additional weight!), and you gain weight from your enlarged uterus, placenta, and amniotic fluid.

The rest of your weight gain comes from the increased blood and body fluid.
