Increase In Appetite When You Are 20 Weeks Pregnant?
Hello, I’m ± 20 weeks pregnant. Recently, I often snack on biscuits, like Oreos and Olay slai, I really like it. Sometimes wake up immediately snacking then eat nasal, then take pregnant vitamins. The body doesn’t increase, maybe it’s because I’m actually thin. R nBut is it safe? Should I check blood sugar? If it’s safe, how should I manage the number of biscuits I consume per day? Tks.
At the time of pregnancy it is natural that there is an increase in nasal intake. From the circumstances that you experience, if you often consume biscuits at 20 weeks pregnant, then actually this is not dangerous. You can just consume biscuits. However, even though it is safe, it is advisable not to consume too many biscuits. Biscuits contain simplex carbohydrates such as sugar, which can lead to increased blood sugar levels. Increased blood sugar levels that occur continuously can cause growth problems in babies.
If you have no previous history of diabetes, then you don't need to check your blood sugar levels. you simply reduce consumption of biscuits from now on. if you wish, you can consume just a few biscuits a day.
during pregnancy if you really want to snack, then choose other food ingredients to eat such as fruit, salad with chicken meat, or you can consume granola (food made from oats / wheat).
