More than average: The average weight gain during pregnancy is 25 pounds. But of course, this is for women that start at an average weight. Your weight is low, but close to 'ideal' when based solely on your height. A 25-35 pound weight gain will be your goal. Unless your doctor has placed you on restriction or you have had recent vaginal bleeding/cramping/rupture of membranes, sex during pregnancy should be fine.
