None recommended: Trying to gain weight to get full breasts is a bad idea. You are likely to get fat without fuller breasts. If you must, you may consider getting a breast implant. I am not recommending it, jut informing you of the option. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Growing fetus: Some weight gain in the context of pregnancy is expected and healthy. The growing baby along with bodily changes (increase in blood and fluids, placenta, etc) can account for healthy weight gain.

You doctor should advise you on healthy gain. ...Read more

Would also recommend complete thyroid panel with tsh, free t4, free t3, and rev. T3.
