Here are answers from FAQ Farmers: * Anytime throughout your pregnancy. * It depends how much you eat. The baby/placenta/uterus do not add any significant weight until the 4th or 5th month. Some women put on very little weight, particularly if they were overweight to begin with and watch what they eat. I once cared for a woman who weighed 168 pounds at the start of her pregnancy and 161 pounds at the end (with the help of the hospital dietician). Her mother was prediciting dire consequences. Her baby boy weighed over 10 pounds. She went home weighing 137 pounds. * It is up to your body. Eat when you're craving or when you're hungry. Don't over stuff yourself.
