Weight gain during pregnancy for each pregnant woman will be different. Where this really depends on the weight and height of the mother before pregnancy. In full the mother can read about the weight gain of pregnant women based on their weight and height before pregnancy in this article. After reading it, you can match it with your condition.
Mothers can also calculate the increase in maternal weight according to gestational age in the following way, namely the increase in body weight during the first trimester of pregnancy (age 0-14 weeks of pregnancy or the first 3 months) is around 1-1.5 kg, then an increase of about 1.5-2 kg every month until delivery. So the mother's weight should increase about 4.75 - 6.5 kg of weight before pregnancy.
Increase in maternal weight is due to an increase in fetal weight, amniotic fluid, placenta, breast, uterus, blood volume, volume of body fluids and maternal fat reserves. Indeed the nutrition that the mother consumes will first be conveyed to the growth and development of the fetus, then it will be stored as a reserve of maternal fat if excess. Well, mothers also must be careful if the weight increases than it should because it can interfere with the health of the mother and fetus.
To be able to increase body weight, mothers should prioritize eating healthy and nutritious foods, eat small but frequent portions and consume extra calories (such as cheese, milk and peanut butter). Remember not to increase maternal weight exceeds the ideal huh.
Thus hopefully useful.
