For a women with an average body mass index it is recommended to gain about 20-30 pounds during pregnancy. Gaining more than that is not recommended and increases your risks of multiple complications. During pregnancy you are not really eating for two as the old saying goes. Your calorie intake does not need to increase very much. Focus on eating a healthy well balanced diet and exercising daily. You will gain weight but if you work at it you can keep the weight under control. All women will gain some fat and that is normal.
