Pregnancy Weight Gain Myths

Hello reader,

Pregnancy is a beautiful and sensitive phase of a woman’s life. There is a lot of misconception revolving around the expected weight gain during pregnancy which leads to a lot of stress in pregnant women.

Women are often advised that they need to eat for two people which leads to their overindulgence in food.

Consumption of calorie dense food due to the cravings leads to excess weight gain which further adds the risk for  conditions like gestational diabetes or gestational hypertension.

It is very important to understand that each pregnancy is unique and women should avoid comparing their experiences during this phase.

The recommended weight gain during pregnancy will depend on the preconception weight. 

Also, the amount of calorie intake depends on several factors like pre pregnancy BMI, medical conditions if any, special cases like twin pregnancy etc.

I have listed down a detailed guide on losing weight after pregnancy. The second post talks about gradual vs rapid weight loss.
