Pregnancy: gaining weight ... but how much?

The needle of the scale that leans more and more to the right comes a little tarnish the joy of seeing your belly round out? Tell yourself that you are not alone in this case.

Indeed, there are many women who, even pregnant, monitor their weight, with the goal of quickly finding the line after pregnancy. If it's good to control weight gain - including during pregnancy - be careful not to overdo it when you're pregnant.

To the same extent, we should not take pregnancy as a pretext for a certain dietary excess in the opposite direction: to allow all pleasure on the pretext that we will grow anyway, giving ourselves -being even good conscience by saying that you have to eat "for two" now ...

In either direction, it is advisable to remain reasonable for your well-being and of course for the health of your baby.

While there is no need to upset your eating habits during pregnancy, there are still some dietary rules that need to be followed and some specific needs to be addressed during this time. If it is obvious that you should not eat less during pregnancy, you do not have to eat twice as much: what matters is eating better! This is the best way to ensure proper baby development and "normal" weight gain during pregnancy.

But eat better, what does it mean exactly? And how do you know how much weight to take during pregnancy?
