Review 1 for Pregnancy Weight Gain What is Just Right?
Date:January 6, 2014
Actually the comment that greater weight gain risks "complications during delivery because your baby gets too big" is misleading. As long as the weight gain does not cause gestational diabetes, it won't significantly affect your baby's weight. Numerous studies have shown that the baby's weight is indexed to the amount of belly fat the woman has when she becomes pregnant; typically it is not indexed to gains during pregnancy. Indeed thinner women should gain more weight. If you don't have much fat on your thighs and butt, especially, you should concentrate on consuming more omega-3 fats during pregnancy, trying to gain weight down there, to insure that your baby will have enough of these healthy fats, both during gestation and later on if you breast feed.
