You should gain weight during pregnancy
Posted in 2014

  • t’s best to start pregnancy at a healthy weight. Talk to your provider to find out a healthy weight for you before you get pregnant.
  • Gaining too much or too little weight during pregnancy can be harmful to you and your baby.
  • Don’t ever try to lose weight during pregnancy.
  • You only need about 300 extra calories a day during pregnancy to support your baby’s growth and development.

Is weight gain important during pregnancy?

Yes. Gaining the right amount of weight during pregnancy can help protect your health and the health of your baby. 
If you gain too little weight during pregnancy, you’re more likely than other women to have a premature baby or a baby with low birthweight. A premature baby is born too early, before 37 weeks of pregnancy. Low birthweight means your baby is born weighing less than 5 pounds, 8 ounces.
If you gain too much weight during pregnancy, you’re more likely than other women to:
  • Have a premature baby. Premature babies may have health problems at birth and later in life, including being overweight or obese. Being obese means you have an excess amount of body fat. 
  • Have a baby with fetal macrosomia. This is when your baby is born weighing more than 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Having a baby this large can cause complications, like problems during labor and heavy bleeding after birth.  
  • Need a cesarean birth (also called c-section). This is surgery in which your baby is born through a cut that your health care provider makes in your belly or uterus.
  • Have trouble losing weight after your baby’s birth. This can increase your risk for health conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure. 

How much weight should you gain during pregnancy?

This depends on your health and your body mass index (also called BMI) before you get pregnant. BMI is a measure of body fat based on your height and weight. To find out your BMI, go to
The amount of weight gain that is recommended depends on your health and your body mass index before you were pregnant. If you were a normal weight before pregnancy, you should gain between 25 pounds and 35 pounds during pregnancy. If you were underweight before pregnancy, you should gain more weight than a woman who was a normal weight before pregnancy. If you were overweight or obese before pregnancy, you should gain less weight.
I advise every couple to reduce your obesity (If you have) before conceiving...I don't advise to reduce with heavy exercise or other but to reduce without disturbing your body functions and follow healthy habits and healthy food...

My advise
1...   Your child will be growing in your stomach during pregnancy.  He needs sufficient nutrients which you have to supply.   It means you have to eat for your self and your child.
2...   Be happy till delivery
3..    Follow healthy habits, healthy food .......... to have healthy child.
4...   If you don't maintain ideal weight there is a chance to have low birth weight
5,,,   You should also maintain required blood in your body
