It depends on many factors. Your activity level, age and starting weight are very important factors that can affect how much weight you should gain. There is a calculator that considers all of these factors listed below.
Very generally, a singleton pregnancy raises normal calorie requirements by about 300 per day.
Pregnant women do need to up their calorie count, but only with about 300 more calories than usual. The American Dietetic Association (ADA) recommends a daily average of 2,500-2,700 calories a day, but of course that number is flexible depending on each woman specifically. A more important thing for pregnant women to make adjustments to is the type of food they are consuming, rather than just how much. They should never be on a restrictive diet, and need to make sure they get even more nutrients, vitamins, and minerals than they did before.
