I am 5'4 at 109 pounds. And I am willing to see the scale up because I was planning on losing body fat after :)

That depends- What's your height and weight? And are you willing to see a scale-weight increase? If you eat more to gain muscle, the chances of your scale weight coming down is slim- Most people expect to see a slight gain in scale weight while they pack on the muscle, then they work on losing fat (carefully!) when the muscle is on.

I put almost all of my muscle on while losing weight, because I've never been in a position where I felt comfy seeing the scale going up. :-)

I think you also need to consider your protein intake as well.

So I know I have to eat more calories in order to gain some muscle mass. What number should I bump up my calorie intake to?
