In brief: Very little

Weight gain in pregnancy will vary from person to person.
I encourage people to be healthy instead of focusing on weight gain. You only need 300 extra calories per day during pregnancy and this is in the third trimester. In the first trimester when the baby is less than two inches long you should be gaining very little.
