In terms of weight gain, the pregnant mom needs to consume more food for promoting fetal growth as well as supplanting the physical changes for a healthy pregnancy. The first 6 months of pregnancy must be featured with eating and drinking 300 calories more than what you did when you were pregnant. The amount of weight gain that is required depends on your weight. A healthy weight gain of 25 lbs – 30 lbs is ideal, although in case of overweight, the weight gained should be less. In case you are underweight, you must gain more.

Concerns
