It is a necessary biological response for a woman to gain weight during her pregnancy. The weight is added from fat that holds nutrients and water that both provide for and protect the baby. It is not possible to not gain weight during the pregnancy without harming the baby, but there are ways to lose the weight after the birth of the child.
