Sister weight gain during pregnancy

My sister is now 21 weeks pregnant. At this stage she only picked up 1kilo since her pregnancy. Is this normal? I am concerned that it might be too little. It is a really struggle getting maternity clothes for her as she is wearing a no 6.

This probably is too little. Is she eating properly?
