    Eating a healthy balanced diet and getting adequate amounts of exercise daily. As well as drinking 2-3L of water per day will help keep your weight in check.
    Here is a break down of an average weight gain during pregnancy.

    7 1/2 pounds is about how much the baby will weigh by the end of pregnancy.
    1 1/2 pounds is how much the placenta weighs.
    4 pounds is attributed to increased fluid volume.
    2 pounds is the weight of the uterus.
    2 pounds is the weight of breast tissue.
    4 pounds is because of increased blood volume.
    7 pounds is attributed to maternal stores of fat, protein and other nutrients.
    2 pounds for the amniotic fluid.
    Total: 30 pounds
