Hello, Mrs. Rya Maria. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Rice is a source of carbohydrates. In pregnant women, the recommended carbohydrate intake is 135-175 g / day to maintain normal blood sugar levels and prevent interference with energy metabolism. This is to provide 50-65% of energy needs with sources from carbohydrates. To assess the energy needs of pregnant women, there are a number of things to consider, including basic metabolic rate, maternal weight before pregnancy, current weight, current trimester stages of pregnancy, and the level of physical activity. In general, the 3rd trimester of pregnancy (weeks 27-42) is the period with the highest energy requirements, with an additional recommended intake of 300 kcal / day compared to the needs in the 2nd trimester. Therefore, it is advisable to consult directly in advance with a specialist obstetrics and gynecologist or nutritionist for physical examination and support (if necessary). Thus, it can be estimated energy needs and planned daily food intake to meet the nutritional needs of the mother and fetus.
As a recommendation, mothers are advised to eat regularly balanced nutritious food, adequate rest, drink enough water, and control routinely according to schedule to the doctor / midwife / obstetrician. To enrich insight, you can read articles about healthy food choices for pregnant women.
