Weight Gain in Pregnancy

Weight gain in pregnancy is undoubtedly a viral topic. Here today we are discussing some of the facts about the topic.

First and foremost the weight of your baby that is between 3,200 and 3,500 grams, depending on the time of birth. The amniotic fluid and placenta account for between 2,000 and 3,000 grams. The increased weight of your breasts and circulating blood volume also add between 2,000 and 3,000 grams. So after childbirth think how much you will lose weight in just a moment, not so much what you will get off after the birth. You organize a diet plan and exercise for postpartum if you want to get your weight and shape in a couple of months.

Being Overweight in Pregnancy.
Being overweight can endanger your life and the baby as it is associated with complications of pregnancy such as preeclampsia and diabetes, especially if overweight is greater than 20% of recommended weight. Besides being overweight increases the risk of having babies of high birth weight, which increases the incidence of cesarean section at delivery.

Weight Gain more than Usual.
While pregnancy is not the best time to start a diet, it is recommended to change your eating habits. The idea is to eat more varied and in less quantities than usual. The first thing to do is consult a nutritionist to be responsible to carry out a nutritional plan according to your needs.
In general we are recommended a daily intake of 300 extra calories to the usual (between 2,100 and 2,500 calories per day). These extra calories should be obtained from the healthy foods like vegetables, fruits, cereals, lean meats and others, and foods containing sugar, fat or large amounts of carbohydrates.
Remember that gradual weight gain in pregnancy is the best indication that your baby is developing normally and will result in a healthy baby. So if you eat healthy, nutritious and fresh foods and gain weight, stay calm, your baby is growing normally. This does not mean you gain weight in an exaggerated manner and allow excess as never before done.
