Hello Nora, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, pregnant women will not be advised to go on a diet, but rather maintain the food eaten. Maybe you often hear that during pregnancy you have to eat for 2 people, it is VERY NOT TRUE. In the first trimester of pregnancy you don't need more calories, while in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy, you only need 300 more calories than your normal calorie needs before becoming pregnant (less average women need 1800-2000 calories per day).
To keep your baby's weight gain from exceeding normal, you also have to keep your weight gain from exceeding normal. Weight gain during pregnancy is very dependent on your weight and height before pregnancy. You can try to calculate your body mass index before pregnancy by using the following formula:
BMI = body weight (in kg) / height (in m) 2
The following are the interpretations:
BMI> 25 is said to be obese BMI 23-24.9 is called overweight BMI 18.5-22.9 is called normal BMI <18.5 is called underweight
The recommended weight gain for women who have a normal weight before pregnancy is 11.5-16 kg. The recommended weight gain for women who are underweight before pregnancy is 13-18 kg. While the recommended increase in body weight for women who are overweight is 7-11.5 kg.
For your anemia problem, you should discuss again with the obstetrician who is treating you. Anemia in pregnancy is generally caused by a lack of nutrients such as iron, folic acid, or vitamin B12 in her daily diet. Therefore actually from the beginning of pregnancy, a woman has been advised to consume pregnancy vitamins regularly. If indeed anemia has happened like you do now, your doctor will usually recommend you take a pregnancy supplement to improve this anemia condition. You still have to take care of the food you eat so it doesn't exceed the number of calories you need.
