Effect Of Fluctuating Body Weight During Pregnancy On Fetal Health?
Hello, I am 24w pregnant, but my weight fluctuates every month, it affects the fetus or not, thanks
Hello Mrs. Den,
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Many body changes occur in pregnant women and one of them is changes in body weight. The most important thing to remember is that during pregnancy pregnant women need to gain weight. How much weight gained depends on how high and body weight or body mass index (weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared) before pregnancy occurred.
If before pregnancy the mother's weight:
Body mass index below normal (<18.5) recommended increase of 12.5-18 kg normal body mass index (18.5-24.9) recommended increase of 11.5-16 kg body mass index 25-29.9 recommended increase of 7-11.5 kg more body mass index from equal to 30, it is recommended that an increase of 5-9 kg. Maternal weight before pregnancy and weight gain during pregnancy affect the health and growth of the fetus in the womb. If you experience a continuous increase and decrease, you should consult a Gynecologist because it can affect the fetus. Especially if your weight loss and increase drastically.
The suggestions that I can give are:
eat nutritious food don't eat uncooked or raw food don't drink alcohol don't drink sports coffee for pregnant women Hope my explanation can answer the question.
