We understand your complaints and concerns. It is important for pregnant women to experience weight gain. This is related to the health and development of the fetus in the womb. Weight gain in pregnant women is influenced by the body mass index before pregnancy. Normally, pregnant women are expected to gain a maximum body weight of between 12-15 kg during pregnancy, so that each month it is expected that there will be an increase of 1.3 to 1.6 kg per month.
However, not a few pregnant women experience weight loss, especially during young pregnancy or the early to the second trimester. This can be caused by drastic hormonal changes when pregnancy arrives, resulting in the effect of nausea, vomiting and decreased appetite which is not accompanied by adequate calories consumed. Weight loss often occurs temporarily at the beginning of pregnancy, but as soon as you enter the age at the end of the second or third trimester, there will be a jump in weight gain as a result of the rapid development and growth of the fetus in the womb. Of course this is normal. However, if the weight gain is not significant until the third trimester, it is necessary to watch out for and worry about having an impact on fetal growth and development.
Therefore, it is necessary to know more complete data about how much weight you have lost as well as information related to weight before and during pregnancy at this time.
Phagophytes are dietary supplements made from herbal ingredients. Their effectiveness is not well known in the medical field, nor is their effect on pregnancy. So I suggest not taking drugs carelessly before consulting your gynecologist.
To help deal with the complaints you experience, here are some tips you can do to help increase your weight and health during pregnancy:
Consume small but frequent meals (5-6 times a day). Increase consumption of foods that contain calories, such as carbohydrates. Get enough rest. Avoid stress and fatigue. Consume pregnant milk and multivitamins for pregnant women. Increase the consumption of water, vegetables and fruit
Perform regular checks regarding the condition of your fetus to the nearest obstetrician. Ultrasound examination is very helpful for evaluating the development of the fetus in the womb. That is the information that I can convey, hope it helps
